Florida Female Nonprofit Execs Earn Less Than Male Counterparts

Florida Female Nonprofit Execs Earn Less Than Male Counterparts: "Almost 70 percent of the people who run Northeast Florida nonprofits -- and most of their employees -- are women.

But the men who hold the top positions at nonprofits tend to receive bigger salaries than their female counterparts and the pay gap widens as the male-led organizations grow, according to a new report from the Nonprofit Center of Northeast Florida."

Corporate Philanthropy: Ally or Competitor? - NonProfit PRO

Corporate Philanthropy: Ally or Competitor? - NonProfit PRO: "In other words, corporations have figured out that they don’t necessarily need to partner with nonprofits to meet social responsibility goals. The stats bear this out. According to Giving in Numbers 2014, the number of companies providing pro bono service programs increased from 40 percent in 2012 to 51 percent in 2014. Ellinger cited AT&T’s “It Can Wait” distracted-driving campaign as an example. “They are doing many things a nonprofit would normally do—collecting petition signatures and pledges, distributing awareness materials, and providing programmatic tool-kits—without the nonprofit,” he explained."

Atlas of Giving Forecast: Charitable Giving Decline in 2016 - Top Nonprofits

Atlas of Giving Forecast: Charitable Giving Decline in 2016 - Top Nonprofits: "For fundraisers, it always helps to start a new year at full speed.

 

Instead, donors have moved into 2016 by hitting the brakes.

 

Our just-released Atlas of Giving forecast predicts a charitable giving decline in 2016. The downturn is already underway, with giving through February down 1.4% compared to the same period in 2015.

 

These early results were driven in large part by January giving numbers, which recorded the first monthly decline since the nation’s deep recession ended in June 2009. January’s decrease of 0.6% from December snapped a 63-month streak during which giving consistently rose on a monthly basis as the country experienced economic recovery."

The AFP Blog: The (Non)Impact of Political Campaigns on Charitable Fundraising

The AFP Blog: The (Non)Impact of Political Campaigns on Charitable Fundraising: "The (Non)Impact of Political Campaigns on Charitable Fundraising
Some great new research came out last week from Blackbaud about how political giving impacts nonprofit support.

I was pleased to be able to write the forward for the report, which you can find here, but the findings bear repeating.

Using data from the 2012 presidential campaigns, the research found that political donors tracked by the Federal Election Commission gave more to charities in 2012 than they did in 2011."

Survey: Online Fundraising May Diminish Effectiveness of Supporter Communications | Nonprofit Quarterly delivers the latest news and investigative reports

Survey: Online Fundraising May Diminish Effectiveness of Supporter Communications | Nonprofit Quarterly delivers the latest news and investigative reports: "A small survey of 114 leaders of nonprofits with budgets between $100,000 and $200,000 finds that 43 percent of respondents view online fundraising as only “somewhat effective” relative to traditional direct mail, and 35 percent say it is “not particularly effective.” Only three percent see it as “highly effective,” even given the cost considerations.

While the survey is very small, those findings are fairly stark and may serve at least as anecdotal evidence to which we need to pay attention. The accounting firm Marks Paneth, which presumably has no dog directly in the fundraising game, conducted this Nonprofit Pulse survey. Respondents included executive directors, CFOs, treasurers, COOs, development directors, vice presidents and board members."
