GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -

A new survey shows the financial health of nonprofit agencies in northeastern Wisconsin is improving, even as demand for their services has increased.

A survey done by the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation found that 55 percent of area nonprofits say they are fiscally stronger in the past year, up from 43 percent in 2010 and 27 percent in 2009.

Foundation CEO David Pamperin says both individual and corporate donations have increased. Pamperin says one way nonprofits raised more money was to increase fundraising events, including golf outings, galas or other special events.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette says the need for assistance has also grown, with 84 percent of respondents reporting increased demand and 78 percent reporting an increased number of clients on the waiting list for services.
