May 15, 2013 Edition Of The NonProfit Times

The May 15, 2013 issue of The NonProfit Times is now online and hitting mailboxes across the country. Here's a peak at the content you can expect to find in the second issue of the month:


  • Keeping Score With Capital CampaignsThe New Jersey Symphony Orchestra culminated a four-year capital campaign this past June, raising $35.8 million, some 12 percent more than its original $32 million goal, despite the worst economy since the Great Depression.
  • Binders Full Of Fundraisers Causing A Diversity StirVeteran UK fundraiser Giles Pegram, CBE, caused a social media uproar when he tweeted “women are still not adequately engaged in the thinking in fundraising,” causing flashbacks to Mitt Romney's infamous "binders full of women" line.
  • 10 Issues That Top The Activist List For 2013: a new report from Future 500 indicates that a series of issues will force corporations to partner with nonprofits to adapt to a changing environment.
  • Donors And Their WealthEveryone’s looking for investment advice. Charities and donors are no different. Some of the nation’s largest nonprofits are complex businesses, generating income from donations but also via fundraising events, program service revenue or membership fees, as well as investment income.
  • Now CastingAn actor who can play equally well Prospero, Willy Loman, and Felix Unger or Lady Macbeth, Amanda Wingfield, and Lady Bracknell, is highly valued by any theatre company. Likewise, grant writers who can flawlessly execute diverse roles bring real value to their nonprofits.
