Nonprofit Displacement Survey

Every two years, Radian collects data from nonprofits and community-serving organizations regarding displacement pressures and their real estate needs in Denver. New research suggests that nonprofit space needs are changing drastically as a result of COVID-19, which is why your input is critical now more than ever.

Phase 2 of Radian’s Nonprofit Real Estate Survey is now live, and includes additional questions about the displacement pressures heightened by this unprecedented pandemic.

Below is a snapshot of the survey results so far:

  • 48% of nonprofits consider their current location as currently gentrifying or at-risk of gentrifying.
  • 22% of organizations believe their office space is at risk of displacement (pre-COVID).
  • 48% of organizations consider renting or buying property their greatest barrier to maintaining a physical location.
  • 40% of organizations expect to need more office space in the next two years (pre-COVID).
  • The majority of organizations would like to share office space with other nonprofits.
  • 60% of organizations consider their current location is ideal for serving their organizations’ mission.
