New York State is home to the largest nonprofit sector in the nation; in New York City alone, there are about 50,000 nonprofits.

To ensure fellows continue to learn and benefit from the program, The Trust commissioned an assessment of the first five cohorts and is using the report to inform improvements for the fellowship. You can read the full report as a PDF or on issuu.
