  • Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

    The Conservation and Human Rights Organizations industry, composed of nonprofit social and environmental advocacy groups, has experienced growth in the past five years due to rising disposable income and higher corporate profit. These trends have boosted private donations to industry organizations, even as federal funding for social services has recently fallen from its elevated level during the recession. While uncertain government funding and potential tax changes could pose threats to the industry in the future, the next five years are expected to exhibit growth in the number of conservation and human rights organizations.
