The Iowa Nonprofit Recovery Coalition is asking the Legislature for federal and state support to help offset losses incurred as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. In a letter signed by 388 funders, business partners, nonprofits, individual donors and volunteers, coalition members say Iowa nonprofits “face a perfect storm of significantly increased service demands and expenses, combined with limited opportunity to generate resources required to best serve their constituents in the coming months.” In the letter, coalition members say the nonprofit sector’s challenges have not been adequately addressed by federal or state relief, and they ask state lawmakers to consider nonprofits when working toward economic recovery. According to research from the Iowa Economic Development Authority that was conducted by the University of Northern Iowa, nonprofits face an anticipated 49% decline in revenue over the next 90 days, and a 35% reduction in employment. Iowa nonprofits employ more than 170,000 workers, or about 11% of Iowa’s workforce. The coalition is composed of United Ways of Iowa, Iowa Council of Foundations, Delta Dental of Iowa Foundation, Mid-Iowa Health Foundation, Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines, Bravo of Greater Des Moines, and United Way of Central Iowa. The Iowa Nonprofit Recovery Coalition is also asking members of the public to ask their legislators to support the state’s nonprofits.
