Hi, what’s new?
This could be a conversation with a teenager. Or, perhaps with fill-in-the-blank nonprofit. In a recent blog post, Kate Barr, Executive Director at Nonprofits Assistance Fund, outlined the challenges facing our nation’s nonprofits according to Nonprofit Finance Fund’s 2015 State of the Nonprofit Sector report. Then, she compared this report to others from over the last 25 years. And guess what? She noticed many of the same challenges plaguing our nonprofits in 1990 are the same today.
What she also noted is that resilience is a common characteristic of the sector, too. We agree. Give her post a read; it provides great perspective.
We are grateful to have Kate’s optimistic outlook and keen observation as she judges Resourcefullness Award submissions in Minnesota this fall.
