No, none of these links are April Fools Day jokes. You’re just going to have to trust me on this one. Anyway, here’s the links for today…
- Nonprofit Marketing Blog-This isn’t a particular article I’m linking to, this is just a great nonprofit blog by Nancy Schwartz, President of Nancy Schwartz & Company and nonprofit marketing expert. If that is a field you are interested, you must put this blog on the top of your reading list.
- ‘When is a Nonprofit Not a Nonprofit?’-This article from the Nonprofit University Blog contains a hilarious picture and a good definition of what makes a nonprofit a nonprofit; and not, as the author says, a “quasi-government agency” (i.e. does the organization get most of its funding from the government or donors?). There is some great background information in this article, which will help you expand your nonprofit knowledge base.
- ‘Grant Writing Tips’-There is always a high demand for grant writers in nonprofits, so you should take a look at this article from Business Action. This isn’t a step-by-step guide or anything, but it gives you a good idea of what you need to do to prepare your grant proposal letter. In other words, this is a good first site to look at to get an idea of what grant letters are all about.
