NW Nonprofit Capacity Report

Washington Nonprofits is proud to partner with the four other northwest state nonprofit associations to release a comprehensive study on the capacity, strengths, and challenges of the region’s nonprofit sector. The 2016 Northwest Nonprofit Capacity Report: Our Strengths – Our Challenges – Our Resilience was developed using survey data from over 1,000 nonprofits in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington. The report highlights the progress nonprofits are making in creating a resilient sector.

From a statement issued by the National Council of Nonprofits:

"Federal Judge Amos Mazzant has issued a preliminary injunction blocking the Overtime Final Rule from going into effect on December 1. Siding with 21 states that challenged the rule, the judge ruled that the U.S. Department of Labor exceeded its authority in issuing a salary level test, and that the exemption for executive, administrative, and professional employees (the White Collar Exemption) is defined by the duties of the employees, not how much they earn. In making the decision, the Judge is striking down not just the pending overtime rule, but longstanding DOL policy modified in both Democratic and Republican administrations.” This means that the rules will be temporarily suspended from implementation on December 1, 2016. We understand that this is a temporary measure. We will keep you posted as we learn more."
