Nonprofit organizations make significant contributions to the quality of life for the residents of Indiana. They are also a major force in the state's economy and in the economic health of all regions of the state. In particular, health care nonprofits (e.g., hospitals, outpatient clinics, nursing and group homes for the elderly or people with disabilities, blood banks, etc.) not only provide critical services but also employ a significant number of workers with average wages higher than in most other Indiana industries
