Whidbey Community Foundation Conducts Nonprofit Needs Assessment

Whidbey Community Foundation is conducting an online nonprofit survey to evaluate the needs of local organizations while learning more about the work they do, the people they serve, and how to best support them. This survey is part of WCF’s continuing effort to direct funding and support where it is most needed and will have the greatest impact.  

“As the ways in which we invest in this community continue to evolve, we’re very much aware that the hundreds of nonprofit organizations on our Island are changing to respond to their constituent needs,” states Jessie Gunn, Executive Director. “To inform the way we support our nonprofit partners, engagement such as this online survey will be enormously helpful as we build out future funding opportunities, webinars, and other supportive services that the nonprofit community can benefit from.” 

The deadline to complete the survey is Friday, March 3, 2023 by 5:00 p.m. Five randomly selected Whidbey nonprofits that respond to the survey will receive a $100 award for their participation. The survey, at whidbeyfoundation.org/nonprofitsurvey, asks organizations for their latest information about mission and vision, service area, organization contacts, priorities and other needs. Community Foundation staff and the Nonprofit Services Committee will analyze survey results, using the data to guide plans for general and targeted funding and services in 2023 and beyond. A survey report will be shared with nonprofit participants and the community in the coming months.
