Working Differently in a Crisis
Posted by Allison Fine on December 17, 2008
As awful as the economic crisis is (and just ask any nonprofit or foundation who lost money because of the Madoff disaster) there are stirrings in the nonprofit sector to work differently to survive.
The Nonprofit Roundtable in DC created a new social network on NING called Nonprofit 911 that has a big vision of “redefining the way the nonprofit sector operates.” The site shares resources, ideas, organize events. Hopefully the site will spur real conversations between funders and activists.
Maybe the crisis can help us to move away from cannibalistic fundraising habits towards collaborative fundraising as described in the Chronicle.
