The purpose of the blog is to provide nonprofits news that they can use to further their mission. Often times, trends are discussed in global statements that are difficult to localize and place into context for nonprofits that are “boots on the ground”.
This blog is aimed to make trends relevant to nonprofits so we may know how national headlines impact our critical mission-work locally.
