The March 15 Issue Of The NonProfit Times

March 15 is known as the Ides of March, something we are told to "beware." There's no danger here at The NonProfit Times, though, as we have just released our March 15 issue.

The new edition covers a variety of stories, from continued turnover at Komen to a so-called "donorbomb" at a university. Let's take a closer look at some of the new content:

  • CEO Turnover Continue At Some Komen Chapters: Nearly a year after Susan G. Komen for the Cure's much maligned decision (and then reversal) to stop funding Planned Parenthood, the organization is still dealing with fallout in the form of continued CEO turnover.
  • Chefs Chop Away At Hunger: One of the more popular shows on the Food Network is "Chopped," which has four chefs battle to create a perfect three-course meal. On a special episode aired on election day, four chefs working the kitchens of nonprofits gave the panel of judges quite a show.
  • University's Postcard 'Bombing' Actually A Good ThingSaint Peter’s, in celebration of its 140th anniversary this past May, sought to gain 140 new donors in one day. The initiative was officially called “Let’s Get It Done June 1,” but it was known internally as “Donorbomb.”
  • Getting CooperationThe Nature Conservancy has been working to get back to where it was financially before the Great Recession, making a push to expand its audience. To that end, it has been getting more deeply involved in cooperative databases, operations by which organizations can share their lists rather than selling or simply exchanging them.
  • Risky BusinessTo meet its 2010 strategic plan of growing members and supporters, the Washington, D.C.-based Human Rights Campaign needed to expand its reach and engage more broadly in areas that it previously had not, according to Ann Crowley, director of membership and online strategy. And so, HRC in August 2011 launched “On The Road to Equality,” a bus tour visiting 19 cities.
These are just a sampling of the articles you can expect to find in the March 15 issue of The NonProfit Times. To see all of the content, head to our online store to purchase either a digital or print subscription of NPT.
