, released in July 2023, provides the findings from the March-April 2023 Pulse Survey, in which organizations shared their experiences in 2022 and their current activities and plans for 2023. The report builds on 17 years of MAP research about the health and needs of the movement, illuminating valuable insights to LGBTQI organizations, funders, and individual donors.
The findings in the July 2023 report indicate that movement organizations are largely recovering from the effects of COVID, with many of the participants reporting that their experiences raising revenue and budgeting for expenses met their expectations last year, though there were exceptions. Another positive indicator is the large proportion of organizations reporting that they are operating at a higher capacity than before the pandemic. Almost all participants are focusing on hiring more staff, and most organizations have also adapted to working remotely, or with a hybrid of in-office and remote work. As the pandemic appears to wane, movement organizations have opportunity for stabilization and growth.Recommended citation:
