Nonprofit Self Care and Burnout
Hi! I'm currently writing an article about how burnout impacts the nonprofit sector. I'll also be looking at potential preventative measures that individuals and organizations can take, and about healing after burnout.

If you work at a nonprofit organization, foundation, or for-profit service that works for social good, I would appreciate it if you took this survey and shared your experiences. If you aren't working now but previously worked in one of these occupations, please also take this survey. Please share this survey widely.

Note: I will use survey data in aggregate and use the results to inform my article, but I won't publish your written responses without getting your permission first.

This survey uses Google Forms. If you'd like to share your insights without using Google Forms, you can send me an email at
