Balancing the Mission Checkbook

Piece by Piece, Putting it Together

The last four months feels more like four weeks; it’s gone by so quickly. As you probably know, on Jan. 1, 2017, MAP for Nonprofits and Nonprofits Assistance Fund merged to become one organization, offering a broader and deeper range of programs and services for nonprofits. Our larger team of staff, volunteers, and board members has accomplished a lot in the last four months, and we’re excited about much more to come.

Here’s an update:

New Strategic Partnerships Resource for Nonprofits

Over the past year, MAP for Nonprofits has served as a content contributor and a development partner with BoardSource to launch The Power of Possibility: Exploring Greater Impact through Strategic Partnerships campaign.

This campaign is designed to educate, inspire and motivate board members to pause and consider strategic alliances during some key moments in an organization’s life:

To Build, Buy, Beg, Borrow, or Boldly Lease

For nonprofits, the choice of office space or program space matters. Who doesn’t want the perfect environment that inspires our clients or fuels the passions of our staff and contributors?  Our mission, our brand, and our success can all be tied up in the location and building our organization calls home. With this much at stake, how we go about getting that perfect space matters, too.  Should we own it or lease it?  Should we build it or renovate it?  Should we fundraise for it or borrow for it? 

When it Adds Up Just Right: Merger Announcement

When does one plus one equal five, or maybe even ten? When you can multiply as well as add. That kind of arithmetic is why I’m so excited to announce that the Boards of Directors of both Nonprofits Assistance Fund and MAP for Nonprofits have approved the merger of the two organizations effective January 1, 2017.
