Why does this tough decision demonstrate good judgment?

Posted By Erica Crenshaw, Execute Now!, Tuesday, June 18, 2013

The signature nonprofit newscast, "PBS NewsHour,” announced it would be cutting staff this week to compensate for a drop in corporate sponsors. It will eliminate the "noncritical production positions” in San Francisco and Denver and save more money by leaving open positions unfilled and streamlining technical operations. The reorganization will take place over the next several months starting in July and will help balance the budget.

When I read news like this, I am always reminded of the tough conversations I've had with some of my clients about...

A Challenging Message about Nonprofit Funding from Dan Pallotta

Posted By Matthew Mullenix, Louisiana Association of Nonprofit Organizations, Sunday, June 16, 2013


An important 19-minute TED Talk from author and philanthropist Dan Pallotta on the state of nonprofit funding, donor investment and the potential of the nonprofit sector to solve large problems at scale.

From the producers:

"Activist and fundraiser Dan Pallotta calls out the double standard that drives our broken relationship to charities. Too many nonprofits, he says, are rewarded for how little they spend -- not for what they get done. Instead of equating frugality with morality, he asks us to start rewarding charities for their big goals and big accomplishments (even if that comes with big expenses). In this bold talk, he says: Let's change the way we think about changing the world."


RELATED: Tune in Monday, June 17 at 7:10 AM to hear LANO CEO Ann S. Williamson and Execute Now! CEO Erica Crenshaw discuss Pallotta's premise and how it relates to nonprofits in Louisiana.

GNOF Releases Paper on Unmet Needs in Oil Spill Recovery

Posted By Julia MacMullan, The Greater New Orleans Foundation, Sunday, June 16, 2013




The Greater New Orleans Foundation, the regional community foundation responsible for raising and awarding significant philanthropic dollars following the Gulf Coast Oil spill, released a report identifying gaps in community needs that will go unmet by the federal recovery plan for the BP oil spill catastrophe. 

The RESTORE Act ensures that 80 percent of Deepwater Horizon civil and administrative penalties will go to Gulf Coast restoration, and sets up a framework to enable coordination between the Gulf States and the Federal government.  

The report titled Where is the Role of Philanthropy in the RESTORE Act? acknowledges that the Act does provide support for environmental and economic recovery along the Gulf Coast, but does not provide for significant citizen participation in deciding how funds and projects are implemented in their communities.  Nor does it provide for an endowment to address long-term and emerging issues resulting from the spill.



A copy of the report is available at



About Greater New Orleans Foundation
The Greater New Orleans Foundation is the community foundation serving the 13-parish Greater New Orleans metropolitan area. We design and lead initiatives that improve the region, connect donors to community needs, identify and support great nonprofits, and strengthen civil society.
