Nonprofit Economic and Social Impact Study
The Charles County Nonprofit Economic & Social Impact Study was convened in 2017 by the Charles County Charitable Trust (the Trust) in partnership with Maryland Nonprofits. The purpose was to gain a contemporaneous picture of the county’s nonprofit sector by exploring the economic and social impact made by nonprofit organizations in the county. The study provides an overview of the significant role they play and highlights their contributions to the county’s economy and quality of life.
The study called on existing data from the Internal Revenue Service and the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation and also collected data via an online survey of Charles County nonprofits. It examined the programs, operations, and fiscal management of nonprofit organizations headquartered in and/or serving the residents of the county.
The findings also include information provided by the nonprofit survey respondents about their plans over the next twelve months with respect to program services and financial operations
