Event Description

“We are competing with fast food chains and retail stores but our staff have far more responsibility and work under more stressful situations than those who flip burgers or ring up sales.”

 

“Prejudiced, stereotypical, and discriminatory attitudes and behaviors have been emboldened, and we hear from our young people that they are suffering as a result.”

 

“The US nonprofit sector is resilient, collaborative, innovative, and determined to address the most complex and enduring problems in our country.”

 

 

Almost 3,400 leaders of nonprofits across all 50 states and a wide range of sizes, missions, and work areas raised their voices through the latest State of the Nonprofit Sector Survey. They said:

 

·     Demand continues to rise faster than nonprofits’ ability to meet it: 86% of Survey respondents say demand for their services is rising, and 57% say they don’t think they can meet it.

 

·     They continue to move forward with characteristic determination and creativity: 54% of respondents increased staff and 55% increased compensation in 2017.

 

·     They are very worried about the people they serve: 67% say the federal government’s 2017 actions and words made life harder for their clients.

 

Join us to dig deeper into the data and explore its uses for your planning and presentations.

 

Please forward this to your friends and colleagues so that they can explore the data as well!

An Open Streets Family Reunion: Reflections from the 2018 Open Streets Summit

By Ryan O’Connor, Director of Programs, 8 80 Cities Recently 8 80 Cities wrote a blog post about open streets being a labour of love.

Partnership for the Bay's Future, in Close-Up

An article in the Bay Area magazine Gentry takes a careful look at how Partnership for the Bay's Future, LISC's collaboration with the San Francisco Foundation, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, Genentech, the Ford Foundation, Kaiser Permanente and others is tackling the region's extreme affordable housing shortage, alongside transportation access and economic opportunity. "Housing has to be considered everybody's challenge and everybody's opportunity," says LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones in the piece. That collective ownership and the diversity of sectors in the partnership "are the only way we're really going to make true progress."

Talent Development Catalyzes Opportunity

A strong and vibrant workforce helps fuel community growth as well as business success. That’s why Union Pacific Railroad is supporting LISC Financial Opportunity Centers and contributing the expertise of its staff to industrial training programs that help people compete for family-sustaining jobs. Union Pacific’s Chiquita Morgan urges employers to "get out from behind our walls" and help advance the efforts of workforce development agencies, neighborhood groups and others who are helping people build a stronger financial future for themselves and their community.
