The Nonprofit Quarterly Nonprofit NewswireCheeky Charity

February 11, 2010; The New York Times | When it comes to charity, Olympic snowboarder Hannah Teter can get downright cheeky about it. The gold medalist, who already sells maple syrup to raise money for clean water projects and shelter for AIDs victims in Africa, is now lending her name and backside to a line of women’s panties of which some of the proceeds will be donated to individual nonprofits.—Bruce Trachtenberg


The Nonprofit Quarterly Nonprofit NewswireBlood Bank May Need Transparency Transfusion

February 13, 2010; Orlando Sentinel | Florida’s Blood Centers is in hot water again for a lack of transparency and they probably should have seen this one coming.—Ruth McCambridge


The Nonprofit Quarterly Nonprofit NewswireProperty Tax Debate; N.J. Style

February 13, 2010; Press of Atlantic City | This article is well worth your time if you are concerned about nonprofits’ eroding exemptions from taxes and fees. It is accompanied by a photograph of a beautiful beachfront resort that is owned by nuns and has, evidently, recently been converted to untaxed status. Despite the stark visual statement of that juxtaposition, the article is very detailed and tries to explore both sides of the issue while sounding an alarm about the ongoing discussion of whether or not nonprofits should continue to be afforded exemptions from property tax status. NPQ has been covering any number of such efforts both in the magazine and in our newswire here and here, among others. Watch here to see how this trend develops and what you can do to stave off costly encroachments on our status.—Ruth McCambridge

The Nonprofit Quarterly Nonprofit NewswireIn Our Dreams!

February 15, 2010; The Columbus Dispatch | I would venture to say that many of us nonprofit types have recurring dreams of the odd donor who realizes our organization’s true worth and decides to send many millions our way.—Ruth McCambridge
