2015 Space Survey Report

2015 Nonprofit Space Survey
Final Report

Are Nonprofits Getting Priced Out of Denver?

In the last several years, Metro Denver has experienced sharp increases in real estate prices along with an increased demand on many nonprofit services.  The goal of the 2015 Nonprofit Space Survey was to analyze today’s spaced needs of Metro Denver nonprofits.  The intent was to capture the size, scope, and the state of nonprofit space usage in Metro Denver.

What we found is nonprofits have successfully responded to the Great Recession post-2008 and have taken advantage of favorable rates over the last five years.  However, the skyrocketing real estate market is impacting nonprofits across Metro Denver.

With 493 unique respondents providing a snapshot of Colorado Nonprofits we are able to answer the question are Nonprofits being priced out of Denver. 102 of those respondents were either shared space operators or were located in shared spaces.

Sneak peek at the survey findings:

  • 44% of renters have leases expiring in 1 year
  • Average nonprofit is paying $11.57 per square foot
  • New lease rates for (Class C) space is $16.60 per square foot
  • 35% of nonprofits say there is not enough space for future programs

We are very excited to share our newest publication, the 2014 Colorado Nonprofit Facilities Survey.

In 2014, The Nonprofit Centers Network and Denver Shared Spaces issued the Colorado Nonprofit Facilities Survey, patterned after a 2001 survey of nonprofit facilities needs in Metro Denver commissioned by the Rose Community Foundation and the Daniels Fund. This project intends to fill a 13-year data gap on nonprofit space usage.

This publication provides information, analysis, and recommendations to help nonprofits, public and private decision-makers, funders, and the community at-large make better space decisions, support data-driven decision-making around public policies, philanthropic investments, and nonprofit organizations’ planning and budgeting processes.
