Better Together

"Individually excellent but better together".  If there was ever a ringing endorsement for consolidation, this is the statement regarding the bringing together of 17 high schools and four special-education Roman Catholic schools in Philadelphia. Four years ago the schools, all independently run and operated were faced with the possibility of closing as their primary sponsor, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese positioned that there just wasn't enough money.  But alumni and others got together,…

Who are today's Emmett Till and Tamir Rice?

Atlanta — IN winter 1916, several hundred black families from the Selma, Ala., Cotton Belt began quietly defecting from the Jim Crow South, with its night rides and hanging trees, some confiding to The Chicago Defender in February that the "treatment doesn’t warrant staying." It was the start of the Great Migration, a leaderless revolution that would incite six million black refugees over six decades to seek asylum within the borders of their own country.…

Blackness in Nonprofit Theater: Where Representation Becomes Marginalization

As a black male growing up in the South, my very presence was a form of trespass; that is, I was never sure where I belonged and where I did not. At home, I was alone. At school, I was different. On the street, I was unsafe. Professional theater, I discovered, was no exception: looking at the administration, production teams, and show selections of theaters within visiting distance, I found no reflections of the black community. What I did find were three very troubling practices:…

Nonprofit Board Duties

I don't know anything about the gentleman who wrote the following, but his thought about a nonprofit board's 4th duty (not legally binding) gives one pause.  I would offer that I think Mr. Cagna's offering fits better in building-out on what BoardSource describes as a nonprofit Board's three roles: fiduciary, strategic and generative.  But where exactly to fit his thinking (role or duty) is not as critical as the focus of his thinking.  Indeed, what Mr. Cagna does is…

THE HEALTHCARE ENVIRONMENT AND AN AGING POPULATION

By David V. Hunter 

January 14, 2016

 

Connecticut is undergoing a permanent and historic transformation in its demographics - it is aging. Between 2010 and 2040, Connecticut’s population of people age 65 and older is projected to grow by 57%, with less than 2% growth for people age 20 to 64 during the same period[1]. Moreover, residents born in Connecticut today can expect to live to be 80.8 years old—the third highest life expectancy in the nation…

Neighborhoods: What is Working

Associating Associations: The Power of Convening

While many institutions are interested in enabling neighborhoods, they tend to focus on interventions and see convening as a means to their ends. An even more productive function could be to act as a neutral convener.

How do we create a culture, a way of being together that affirms our relatedness? Peter talks with Nicole Farkouh about visionary leadership, personal versus communal transformation and building community in organizations, neighborhoods and beyond.

LISC CEO to Congress: Here’s What Opportunity Zones Need To Succeed

Maurice A. Jones testified before the Joint Economic Committee of Congress this week, urging its members to implement Opportunity Zones in ways that will truly benefit Americans in underinvested communities. The policy can spur billions in private investment in the country’s most distressed census tracts and play a major role in closing the opportunity gap, he said. But we need federal tax incentives and other strategies to help the program succeed.

Crowdfunding + LISC Give Small Businesses a Big Boost

Small businesses are a major dynamo of innovation and growth in our economy—they make up more than 99 percent of U.S. enterprises and create two out of every three new jobs. A partnership between LISC and the crowdfunding platform Kiva is connecting small business entrepreneurs across the country with the capital and knowhow they need to succeed.

Crossing a Bridge to Success: One Mother’s Story

In honor of Mother’s Day, we are sharing the story of Paulette Arnold, a single parent of four who is turning her family’s financial life around—and building a rewarding career—after completing a LISC-supported Bridges to Opportunity program in San Diego.
