VOICES FROM THE FIELD:
Rejoice! Your next big fundraiser is here. You don’t need to pour ice water on yourself or pose like a mannequin; you just need to bait a contentious, mercurial man who likes to lash out in 140-character tweets.
Alliances within the arts and culture community and with other nonprofits in the healthcare, environmental, and educational sectors—among others—are doing a lot of good in urban communities. Where will this trend go?
With events already booked at Mar-a-Lago, the Cleveland Clinic and Dana-Farber are in the unenviable position of trying to judge what path will lose or gain them more donors; as of now, they appear to be sticking to plan.
In a bizarre speech at the National Prayer Breakfast, Trump excoriates Schwarzenegger again and vows to repeal the Johnson Amendment which applies to all 501(c)(3) organizations, not just religious congregations.
University and college endowment returns lost ground on their rates of investment return across the board last year. Will this dissuade critics from demanding they meet a mission-related spending floor?
After the multiple fatalities in the wake of the Ghost Ship warehouse fire in Oakland, California, NPQ predicted many ripples in the arena of informal work/life spaces where many young artists create art communities and live and work relatively cheaply. For who that manage such places, the cities in which they sit, and the funders who support them, safety has become an immediate concern. For no one is that more true than Elisabeth Setten, executive director of Art Works Downtown in San Rafael, California. The nonprofit is housed in an 1880s-era opera house that houses the nonprofit’s three galleries, 32 artist studios, and 17 low-income apartments. The space allows artists to live cheaply while creating and displaying their art and is the central engine in a revival of the downtown area.
