Weekly Nonprofit Headlines and Blogs

What is your big idea? Over the past several years I’ve struggled to identify the 2-3 primary things that make a nonprofit more fundable (and also more likely to succeed in their mission). One of the areas that I’ve identified (and read about from other experts) is having a big idea. It’s not just business as usual or trying to do just a little bit. It is truly having a big idea that will have a big impact on your community, state, nation and/or world. So… what’s your big idea?

Here’s a summary of this week’s articles and blogs related to nonprofit organizations. As always, please feel free to forward this to others you know who might benefit from it. Thanks again for reading!
