Under Pressure: 2024 State of BC’s Non-Profit Sector Report

Under Pressure is the fourth installment in a series initiated by a partnership between Vantage Point, Vancouver Foundation, Victoria Foundation, City of Vancouver, United Way British Columbia and Vancity Community Foundation. In this year’s state of the sector survey, we surveyed 558 non-profit organizations across BC to check-in around various trends while also probing deeper into the underlying challenges highlighted in the last report.

The report provides consistent, high-quality data, crucial to understanding the non-profit sector in BC, and equipping funders, policy makers, and other sector stakeholders with relevant data to make informed decisions and better support the current needs of BC’s non-profit sector.

While many respondents report feeling hopeful, they remained concerned about their ability to deliver their programs, services, and activities, stressed about the future of their funding, and worried about the possibility of having to shut down their operations.
