Exempt Magazine: Winter 2012 Issue

One of the perks of the new Exempt web site is the ability to check out past and current editions of the magazine. This includes the Winter 2012 issue, which came out last month.

If you are new to Exempt, you should note that the magazine focuses exclusively on issues related to the financial side of the nonprofit sector. This is different from The NonProfit Times, which writes mostly about management and fundraising issues.

This attention to finance is shown very well in the Winter 2012 issue. Let's take a look at what's inside:

  • Of Pay And PerksA look at some of the salary and benefits practices at some nonprofits, including the United Way of Rock River Valley. This article is based on NPT's 2011 Salary and Benefits Report.
  • Return On InvestmentLooking to invest in public companies that service nonprofits? This article takes a look at some of the organizations that did well in 2011.
  • Prospect WealthWhen the $200 million Reed College Centen­nial Campaign began five years ago, the school turned to donor prospect research to help identify alumni and college friends who might be able to make a major gift.
  • In The CrosshairsThe New York Attorney General (NYAG) recently crossed into what some consider the hallowed ground of charities, by launching an investigation into cause-related marketing of “pink ribbon” charities.
  • Accounting Software: Why is accounting software so important? Find out in this column by Tim Mills-Groninger, a consultant to the federal department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate.
