Nearly 90 percent of the country's largest foundations report that at least some of the nonprofits they support have been severely affected by state budget cuts, and a quarter of the funders surveyed reported having grantees that were forced to suspend operations. To help address the situation, about half the funders said they have provided assistance to affected nonprofits. This study also includes an essay by Doug Bauer, Executive Director of The Clark Foundation.
