Thanks to Patrice Frank for pointing out a great article from The New York Times - Why Fund-Raising is Fun, by contributing op-ed writer Arthur Brooks. The writer, who heads up a research institution in Washington and devotes a great deal of time to fundraising, stumbles across data that shows that people who donate and volunteer are happier, more prosperous and more fulfilled. Brooks digs deeper into studies about philanthropy and learns that service to others and happiness go hand-in-hand - as does a feeling of having a fuller life, one with deeper meaning. You may want to share this one with your donors.
We recently received a detailed letter from AFPLI's CPA firm, on the New York Non-Profit Revitalization Act of 2013, which becomes effective on July 1, 2014. The law was designed to increase efficiency of administrative tasks and establish more extensive corporate governance requirements, which will require change in many if not all agencies.
