The Institute for Nonprofit Innovation and Excellence (INIE) is a management support organization founded in 2014 to enhance the capacity and leadership of the nonprofit industry through advocacy, education and engagement.

Through a focus on capacity-building, collaboration and creativity, INIE works to enhance the nonprofit sector and ensure that it continues to serve as a driving force for this region’s economy and quality of life. In addition to offering trainings and workshops for nonprofit leaders on topics such as fundraising, finance, communications, strategic planning and more, INIE works strategically to leverage resources on nonprofits’ behalf.

Using analyses of economic data and tax filings of Leon County nonprofits, as well as a representative survey of Big Bend area nonprofits conducted by INIE in 2015, this report examines the state of the sector, detailing the economic value and social contribution of its members.
