Illinois Is the WORST State for Nonprofit Agencies

According to a map put together by reddit user, bigafricanhat, using statistics from, Illinois is apparently the WORST for nonprofit agencies.

Since our state is in debt and unable to pay its bills, that means they also cannot pay nonprofits and government agencies, which many Illinoisans in need rely on for their assistance and services.
