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 Perks: A 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.

- Prospect Wealth: When 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.
