Giving USA Foundation recently released their 2023 report on giving trends in the U.S., and there are plenty of takeaways that nonprofits should pay attention to.
Like employers in other sectors, nonprofits are facing workforce challenges. These challenges include turnover, job abandonment, shifting expectations about transparency and involvement in decisions, and dissatisfaction with pay and benefits.
For a nonprofit to operate at its fullest potential, it takes a team of people with a variety of skills – from finances to technology to HR to fundraising – to make it work. This can be especially challenging for smaller organizations with limited staff. This is why you should partner with 501 Commons to receive the affordable help you need to ensure things run smoothly!
Help your staff reach new levels of personal and professional excellence by joining the Staff Development Coalition so your organization can receive discounts on upcoming leadership/professional development training workshops.
In the past two weeks, greater public attention has been called to anti-Asian hate. In Seattle, a man was charged with malicious harassment after two instances where he shouted profanities and threw things at Asian women and their children. In Atlanta, eight people were killed by a mass murderer, six of whom were Asian-American women.
We are proud to announce the launch of Washington Gives, a year-round fundraising platform. We are making the GiveBIG fundraising platform available year-round to benefit organizations that do not have a website payment portal and to give all organizations year-round access to peer-to-peer fundraising.
If you’ve had to recently reduce staff, 501 Commons is here to help you push through these tough times and — hopefully — emerge on the other side stronger than before. Let’s start a conversation about how we can “fill the gaps” in key areas that may be getting pushed to the back burner or given to staff who are already too busy.
Many organizations (sometimes spurred by board members) think they need to use an RFP to select a consultant. In cases of large government funded projects this may be the case.
The 501 Commons staff and board members are inspired every day by the creativity and commitment we see in the people and organizations we serve.
Need to get more done with limited resources? Want your internal operations to hum? Contracting for services from 501 Commons can reduce your costs or bring needed expertise at an extremely affordable rate.
