Just in time for the end of Thanksgiving weekend, the December 1, 2013 edition of The NonProfit Times is now available.
Along with the usual stories on the latest issues in the nonprofit sector, this issue of NPT also contains our 2014 Annual Buyers’ Guide. Rather than just being a couple of pages in the magazine, this year’s Guide is included as a pull-out section that readers can refer to throughout the year. Designed to be the definitive guide of nonprofit services, the 2014 Buyers’ Guide lists 600 companies spanning 32-pages. You can refer to last week’s blog post for more information on the Guide.
In terms of the editorial content of the December 1 issue, here are some of the stories you can expect to find:
