Nonprofits stay strong in MI

Middle_r1_c1The nonprofit sector has been one of the few engines of job growth in Michigan in the past decade, and it has sustained this record during the recent recession, according to a new report from Johns Hopkins. Between 2001 and 2007, nonprofit employment in Michigan grew by 17.4 percent, while for-profit employment declined by 9.5 percent. Nonprofit employment then continued this trend during the recession, growing by 2.6 percent between the second quarter of 2007 and the second quarter of 2009 while jobs in the business sector fell by 12.8 percent.  (Source: email blast from NorthSky Nonprofit Network)
