Your mission is to build a better world. Ours is to help you succeed.

You can now download the free King County Nonprofit Employee Engagement Survey Report! Nearly 1,200 nonprofit employees from 263 organizations completed the survey last year. It identifies both the wage and non-wage factors that contribute to high employee engagement and reduced turnover. Even if you aren’t located in King County, you may still find the report valuable. There is little research on the opinions of nonprofit workers and it is unlikely that the experience of those in your community would differ significantly from those in King County. We are thankful for our partnership with the King County Veterans, Seniors & Human Services Levy (VSHSL), which shares our vision of building a more fair and equitable nonprofit sector.
