The Feb. 1 Issue Of The NonProfit Times

It's a little hard to believe that we are already in the second month of 2013, but that's exactly where we are. The new month also means the arrival of a new issue of The NonProfit Times. What topics are covered in this edition? Let's take a look.

Special Report

  • Concerts Not Necessarily Music To Fundraisers' Ears: The recent 12.12.12 Concert for Sandy Relief made headlines for the money raised, but fundraising concerts haven't always been as successful. We take a look back at some previous shows, including the legendary Concert for Bangladesh.
  • Facebook Giving Platform Being Tested With Users: The popular social networking site rolled out a new giving platform recently. Will it revolutionize the way individuals donate to their favorite causes?
  • New CGAs Target A Different Level Of DonorsSome of the nation’s largest nonprofits are reporting fewer charitable gift annuities (CGA) in recent years amid historically low interest rates, but the CGAs they do receive are larger than in the past.
  • No More Laurels: There's no question Lance Armstrong lied all these years, but should his faults really negate the work of the foundation he founded? Our editor-in-chief, Paul Clolery, examines the case.
  • Magic Hamper ExecutivesMost nonprofits don’t have Magic Hampers. But, Magic Hamper syndrome can still afflict them. The most important and generic distinction in management is that between executives and managers and their differing time frames. Managers’ typical orientation to time is measured in weeks or perhaps months.
This is only a taste of the articles in the Feb.1 issue. If you want access to the full edition -- in print or digital form -- head to our subscription page.
