Significance of non-profits in Virginia economy

Posted by Bernard Dietz | Sep 05, 2008 | 0 Comments

Have you ever wondered how many non-profit organizations there are in Virginia or how many people in Virginia are involved in non-profits?  An interesting article today in the Richmond Times-Dispatch shares some statistics on this subject.  Some of the highlights (from a study using data from 2005) are that:

  1. One in seventeen employees in Virginia work for a non-profit;
  2. Non-profit employees in Virginia earned more than $8.2 billion in wages;
  3. In 2005, there were 10,414 non-profit organizations in Virginia (and that number is growing), with the highest number of employees in non-profits working in hospitals.
