The research suggests that Scotland's third sector is growing, with the number of full-time jobs already a third higher than last year.
Social Investment Scotland, which carried out the study, said its customers expected to increase their headcount by a further 10% this year, to 1334 in 2014.
The survey of 47 organisations that have received support from Social Investment Scotland found two-thirds have already increased turnover in the past 12 months and 82% expect a rise in the next year.
Professor Nick Kuenssberg, chairman of Social Investment Scotland, said the figures were "very encouraging".
He said: "Positive trading performances are in turn allowing them to create new jobs, become more financially sustainable and, ultimately, help to improve the lives of more people in communities across Scotland."
Finance Secretary John Swinney said: "Social enterprises, voluntary and community organisations play an important part in Scottish society.
"They deliver superb services, from creating employment opportunities to connecting with the most vulnerable people in our society.
"The Scottish Government is committed to doing all we can to ensure the third sector continues to flourish."
