The Economy League is pleased to announce the release of a new report, "It Matters: The Nonprofit Sector in Southeastern Pennsylvania," commissioned by The Philadelphia Foundation. As a Public Charity community foundation managing more than $350 million in assets, the Foundation has long understood nonprofits' importance in direct community services and advocacy. Yet the full impact of the nonprofit sector in southeastern Pennsylvania is not well understood.
The report attempts to fill this knowledge gap by demonstrating the sector's critical contribution to the region's economy, not solely as provider of services but also as consumer of goods and services, as employer, and as trustee of assets. Visit our website for a summary of the key findings.
Goodman is currently the Community Engagement Director at the New Kensington Community Development Corporation.
Previously, Goodman worked as a city planner and project manager for PennPraxis. His focus was on projects that combined community engagement and public space design, including the Central Delaware Waterfront Planning Process, the Green2015 initiative for Philadelphia Parks and Recreation, and the Bartram’s Mile project in Southwest Philadelphia. Goodman was an early contributor to PlanPhilly and helped shape the site in its first iteration. As PlanPhilly grew, Goodman represented the publisher and provided professional planning input and project management support as the site expanded its beat coverage, went through multiple redesigns, conducted an internal strategic plan, and researched revenue generation opportunities.
