For the #nplove of nonprofit news
YNPN National Board member Dan Blakemore shares a few of his favorite nonprofit news sources with us.
In this month of #nplove, we must take a few moments to recognize a few of the vital outlets who keep nonprofiteers and the rest of the world aware of the latest happenings in our sector.
Even if I were not a fundraiser, I would be interested in the overall trends in philanthropy and the stories of the people and institutions that support our collective work with their time, talent and treasure. The Chronicle offers a fantastic perspective on the sector, as in this piece:
I can always rely on Nonprofit Quarterly for very thoughtful analysis on how policies will impact the sector, like in this piece listing the 10 trends and 10 predictions that will affect the sector.
This brainchild of Jan Masaoka, the amazing CEO of the California Association of Nonprofits, always has articles that make me think, reconsider how I approach the work of making change, and laugh out loud. From Jan's Board Cafe column on board relations and management to Vu Le's Point of Vu column, each issue covers the full spectrum of non-profit management areas in an approachable and personable manner.
