The 2018 100 Best Nonprofits survey is live!

The 10th annual 100 Best Nonprofits to Work for in Oregon survey is open!


The survey is used to determine the 100 Best Nonprofits to Work For in Oregon highlighted in the October issue of Oregon Business, as well as the 100 Best Green Workplaces in Oregon, highlighted in the June issue.

The project is open to nonprofits, professional associations and government agencies (with at least 10 Oregon employees and/or regular volunteers who work at least five hours per week / 20 hours per month).

The nonprofits that took part in the 2017 100 Best Nonprofits to Work For in Oregon were ranked in three groups according to size as follows: organizations with fewer than 20 Oregon employees are small; those with 20-49 are medium; and those with 50 or more Oregon employees are large. The top 33 large and medium organizations and top 34 small organizations comprised 2016's 100 Best Nonprofits to Work For in Oregon. 

There is no cost to participate and organizations may be headquartered anywhere. Survey reports will be available to all qualifying participants so, whether or not your nonprofit makes the list, seize this chance to obtain valuable employee feedback and compare your workplace practices to nonprofits throughout the state. All organization and employee information will be kept private. 

Nonprofits are an important sector in Oregon that employs more than 150,000 employees. To recognize that nonprofits are also key businesses critical to the economic health of the state, Oregon Business magazine launched its annual 100 Best Nonprofits to Work For in Oregon project. Oregon Business partners with CheckPoint Surveys to score and rank the winning 100 nonprofits.
