The age of the internet is a double-edged sword. A sea of information and countless websites track trend indicators, but determining which sites provide valid data and true value seems impossible. Trying to keep up with all of them is challenging enough!

To this end, trends topic pages have been built for the library in myAlliance to help member organizations anticipate and prepare for the future. Curated by the Alliance for Strong Families and Communities’ librarians, these pages have been designed for those responsible for strategic planning, grant writing, program design, fundraising, and keeping track of demographics and trends within their communities and the nonprofit sector.

The trends topic homepage is great springboard to our current featured trends, including:

  • Advancing Equity
  • Community Profile
  • Nonprofit Workforce
  • Health

These pages will be revised periodically to ensure the latest and most current data is reflected, updating regularly to include any new or relevant resources. More trends pages are slated to be added in the future.

The Sector Trends Reports Collection, which can be accessed at the bottom of the trends topics homepage, was used to compile the trends topic pages. Refining your search within the collection will hone in on the material that matters most to you.

We want to hear from you!
