Nonprofit Needs Assessment

The Forbes Funds’ Nonprofit Needs Assessment

The Nonprofit Needs Assessment was designed to help nonprofit organizations in Pittsburgh develop a profile of their organizations’ leadership, adaptive, management and organizational capacity.  The Forbes Funds offers the Needs Assessment as a tool for nonprofits to not only understand their capacity better but as a link to specific programming as well.

We ask that the executive of the organization take the survey through the following link here.  It should take approximately 30 minutes to complete. However, once you begin the online version of the survey, you will have complete it in one session. There is not an option to start and return later. The following link leads to a PDF version. You can preview/work through the assessment using the PDF version then record your responses online.

Upon completing the survey, you will receive an individualized and confidential report of your scores, which will help you take full advantage of TFF learning opportunities including our cohorts and grantmaking.  You can find a sample of what the report looks like here.  If you have any questions or comments about The Forbes Funds’ Nonprofit Needs Assessment, please direct them to
