Strengthening the Nonprofit Sector and Nonprofits by Empowering Leaders - Leading and Learning
Nonprofit Montgomery puts nonprofits "at the table” with leaders in media, business, and government, to create effective in our region. We provide seasoned and emerging leaders with opportunities to sharpen their leadership skills through high-level, high-quality programs and network with each other to foster community. We do this through:
Developing capacity where there are gaps
Creating unique learning and leadership development opportunities
Each year, Nonprofit Montgomery organizes several Tables for Ten - an opportunity to have a completely confidential and candid series of facilitated discussions with peers. By coming together for support and problem solving, nonprofit leaders are more effective in pursuing common goals as well as our own. Innovated by the Nonprofit Roundtable, each “table” meets three times over breakfast or lunch. Participants commit to attending all three sessions. Tables are filled on a first come, first served basis. Past Tables for Ten series have been organized for CEOs of Nonprofits with Budgets under $2 million; CEOs of Nonprofit with Budgets over $5 million; New CEOs; Deputy Directors; and Board Chairs. New Tables for Ten are announced in our weekly e-newsletter; The Roundup.
The Discussion Table for Development Directors meets quarterly. Newcomers are always welcome. For more information, contact

A new report from Nonprofit Montgomery – the first to examine the economic impact of nonprofits in the Greater Washington area – finds that nonprofits generate billions of dollars for the local economy while serving as an engine of employment for more than 40,000 workers in Montgomery County. The report brings together current data on the county’s nonprofit sector, national research, and numerous examples of how nonprofits across the county generate economic impact.
“Although leaders in government and business may intuitively understand the value of the nonprofit community, this new report compellingly quantifies the return on investment that nonprofit businesses provide,” said Chuck Bean, executive director of the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments. “This cutting-edge examination of the business of doing good in Montgomery County is the new model. Now it's time to do this analysis in every jurisdiction in our region.”
The report released to a standing-room-only gathering of County leaders in Silver Spring that included County Executive Ike Leggett , looks at nonprofits from several economic vantage points, starting with the fact that nonprofit businesses, like their for-profit counterparts, are employers and purchasers of goods and services.

This report summarizes and expands on The Nonprofit Almanac 2012, prepared by the National Center for Charitable Statistics and published by the Urban Institute Press. Both publications highlight the growth in the number and finances of 501(c)(3) public charities, as well as key findings on private charitable contributions and volunteering. It presents trends from 2000 to 2010 but special attention is paid to 2008 through 2010 to see the impact the recession had on the nonprofit sector.
This report presents previously unavailable data on year-to-year changes in em- ployment in private, nonprofit establishments in the United States from January 2000 through June 2010, with a special focus on how nonprofit employment fared during the 2007-2009 recession.
This 2012 Issue Brief explores the relationship between civic engagement and economic resilience. It finds that the density and type of nonprofit organizations in a community, as well as its social cohesion (the level at which citizens trust, talk to and help neighbors and socialize with family and friends), are important predictors of that community’s ability to withstand unemployment in a recession.
