ABSTRACT
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to descend upon the public on a global basis, concerns have been raised as to how LGBTQ+ nonprofit organizations could manage crises and generate revenue and maintain networking capabilities. The instruments for data collection that were used are (1) focus groups, (2) questionnaires, and (3) interviews. Being able to operate and remain solvent during this arduous time has proven to be challenging for LGBTQ+ nonprofit organizations. In the current qualitative descriptive study, 21 participants completed questionnaires with regards to how COVID-19 has affected the LGBTQ+ nonprofit sector regarding organizational function. Therefore, a qualitative descriptive research design was used to assess challenges that were brought upon by the pandemic, considering the utilization of crisis management among LGBTQ+ employees within LGBTQ+ nonprofit organizations. Additionally, two sets of theories were incorporated to address the two research questions, and the conclusions were obtained from the data that was collected. The duo theories enhanced the prescriptive theme of organizational stability within Los Angeles, California, regarding crisis management, to limit adverse descriptive themes that could hamper nonprofit LGBTQ+ organizational operations overall. The data analysis tool utilized was Dedoose and its applications. Key findings indicated that there is a lack of training regarding current and future technology. Crisis management strategies for COVID-19 and beyond were adversely affected. Strategic planning and technology advancements could positively influence implications for practice regarding LGBTQ+ nonprofit organizations in Los Angeles, California. Additional recommendations for future research would be to narrow down nonprofits to LGBTQ+ nonprofit organizations, for a specific locality. In turn, this would also highlight organizational structure regarding nonprofit practices within a subculture for future autonomy. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2022 APA, all rights reserved)
