  • The Nonprofit Talent Ratio
    While many studies have looked at nonprofit financial ratios including "program services ratio" and "fundraising ratio" no one has looked at the role "talent" plays in a nonprofits expenses. This pilot study from the Talent Philanthropy Project attempts to define a new "talent ratio" - the ratio of what organizations are spending on talent costs in comparison to overall expenses - and to obtain information on funding streams for those costs at eight varied nonprofits across the US.
