Nonprofit organizations, an integral part of any successful contemporary economy, have absorbed the brunt of the impacts of the pandemic economy in different ways.

The Greater New Orleans Foundation has been tracking these impacts, and 2021’s report has just come out.

Kellie Chavez Greene, Vice President for Programs of the Greater New Orleans Foundation, and Dr. Steve Mumford, faculty in the University of New Orleans Public Administration program, discuss the latest findings.
