The Non Profit Job Losses and Service Cuts Survey in 2012 found that 80% of non profits had experienced significant funding cuts in the previous year.
* Over 64% reported having to cut services to their beneficiaries as a result and respondents reported a 21% loss in jobs.
* Funding cuts had come from all major funding sources with the National Lotteries Board topping the list at 44%, followed by corporate (39%) and individual (37%) donors.
* These worrying findings provided a solid case for greater support for the sector, particularly within government.
* To find out what, if anything, had changed, GreaterGood SA conducted a follow-up survey in October 2013.
