Nonprofit Merger

The following article from the Cape Cod Times reveals how challenging and how much time the bringing together as "one" a nonprofit merger process can take. I of course don't know all the details but given the differences in size between the two organizations, acquisition may be a better label for what is being negotiated. While indeed, the two may become one, one museum is larger with more resources. The reality being faced by the smaller institution, that it is losing money, may be the…

The Child Nutrition Reauthorization legislation currently being discussed in Congress includes a provision that could eliminate several New Haven schools from access to free school meals, would impact several New Haven high schools food programs, and would seriously impact the Summer Meals program, through changing the guidelines for community eligibility, thus undoing many of the gains our community has made over the past few years to reduce childhood hunger in New Haven.

Rediscovering Welcome
