Community sector groups are focused on satisfying social missions but are also employers, tenants, property owners, consumers and service-deliverers. These organizations manage budgets, employ skilled workers, contribute to the tax base and exercise their substantial purchasing power within the local economy. However, groups that operate on a nonprofit basis are more likely to be recognized in terms of their missions; their contributions to the social good; ...the positive outcomes delivered to their clientele and general improvement in the quality of life within the communities in which they operate. Yet, these groups which do ‘good’ for our communities also spend real dollars and cents purchasing actual goods and services and, as such, contribute in a significant way to the local economy. Because these impacts are often overlooked, this report addresses the extent to which community groups may contribute to local economic activities. This report fills a research void by demonstrating their economic contributions.
