Nonprofit Economic Impact Study
Nonprofit corporations contribute to the quality of life for all SLO County residents in many visible and invisible ways. Though less tangible, the nonprofit sector is also an ever-evolving, widely diverse force generating significant economic benefit and stability for local residents. In 2005, United Way of SLO County partnered with PG&E and the UCSB Economic Forecast Project to bring the SLO County Nonprofit Economic Impact Study to life to show local government, businesses, individuals and even nonprofits just how large a force it is. The resulting report documents the contributions of local nonprofit public benefit corporations to the economic health and social well-being of SLO County citizens through employment, revenue generation, purchasing power, service provision and volunteer engagement.
