The Wave 3 survey was distributed in late April 2021 to those public charities that had previously responded to either Wave 1 or Wave 2 of the survey. Just over 3,000 organizations responded. The results tell a story of the nonprofit sector’s resilience and contribution. During the pandemic, nonprofits have worked hard to keep their doors open and provide services to their constituents. While some remain closed, many more are providing services in some way–even if it is in a different way than prior to the pandemic, such as remotely. The nonprofit sector has rallied during the pandemic to provide new services to new populations and to create partnerships with other organizations.
