Most Los Angeles nonprofit organizations continue to struggle with declining revenue and increased demand, and there's no end in sight, according to a new report released by the Center for Civil Society at the UCLA School of Public Affairs.

"Hard Times: Impacts, Actions, Prospects—The State of the Nonprofit Sector in Los Angeles 2010" reveals that for the second year in a row, more than 60 percent of local nonprofits experienced an increased need for their services, particularly among low-income and vulnerable populations, while more than 50 percent reported a significant decline in funding.

The report was released during the Center's annual State of the Nonprofit Sector conference, held on Nov. 29 at the California Endowment in downtown Los Angeles.  The conference was co-sponsored by Southern California Grantmakers and the Center for Nonprofit Management.
