LANO Members Featured in Baton Rouge's 225 Magazine

Posted By Administration, Sunday, December 1, 2013
Updated: Monday, December 2, 2013

LANO and its member organizations, Louisiana Delta Service Corps and the Sexual Trauma Awareness & Response Center (STAR), are featured in the November 27 edition of 225 Magazine, a Baton Rouge-based print and online publication. 

The article by Maggie Heyn Richardson, titled "Philanthropy under 40," highlights the charitable interests and energy of Millennials, the generation of young people born between the early 1980s and early 2000s and known for their dedication to service.

"This is a generation that has full agency with new media, is aware of what's going on in the world and can just as easily be moved by a typhoon in India as they can by hunger in their own community," says Matt Mullenix, interim president and CEO of the Louisiana Association of Nonprofit Organizations (LANO). "We see our member organizations trying to figure out how to effectively connect with young adults and tap their interests. It definitely requires new strategies, including better social media."

Part II: Millions diverted from nonprofit coffers

Posted By Erica Crenshaw, Execute Now!, Sunday, December 1, 2013
Updated: Monday, December 2, 2013
In my last post, I introduced a heartbreaking article in The Washington Post, "Inside the hidden world of thefts, scams, and phantom purchases at the nation's nonprofits." 

 

According to The Post, more than 1,000 nonprofits that filed 990 tax forms between 2008 and 2012 checked the box indicating they had discovered a "significant diversion” of assets attributed to theft, investment fraud, embezzlement and other unauthorized use of funds. Charities are required to report diversions in excess of $250,000 or five percent of the nonprofit's annual total assets. Even though these organizations are directed to explain the losses, they regularly omitted information either because they were not yet aware of the diversions or did not want to report it.

A blatant lack of oversight and spotty checks and balances are the common themes
among these organizations that discovered enormous losses in revenue. I discussed 
strategies to overcome these frequent pitfalls by instituting internal practices
in my last post. 

This week, I want to take a look at additional methods for nonprofit accountability through deeper partnerships between funders and grantees that may help to mitigate...

Millions diverted from nonprofit coffers

Posted By Erica Crenshaw, Execute Now!, Monday, November 18, 2013

Heartbreaking is the word I would use to describe this article, "Inside the hidden world of thefts, scams, and phantom purchases at the nation's nonprofits," in The Washington Post. I decided to tackle the article through a two part series. The first part is more obvious, which is the lack of oversight within the nonprofit sector. Within the second part of the series, I'll discuss how deeper partnerships between funders and grantees may help to mitigate future losses....
