Voter Suppression May Become Synonymous with the Midterm Elections

October 12

It is amazing the number of ways that voters’ names have quietly (and sometimes not so quietly) been removed from the rolls as we approach the midterm elections. States with contentious, close political races seem particularly prone to this. At this point, it might be hard to pick an exemplar, the leading state in voter suppression, but Georgia would be high on the list. …

A Guide to a Selection of TechSoup's Security Products

Nonprofits have a unique relationship with cybersecurity. They often work with smaller budgets than for-profit companies, so sometimes fewer resources are available to keep things as secure as they could be. There is also sometimes a feeling that since they are doing social good, they aren't prime targets for criminals. For these reasons, nonprofits are demonstrably more vulnerable to data loss.…

The Power of Small Givers

The Ford Foundation was once described as “a large body of money…completely surrounded by people who want some.” It’s easy to look at a big pile of silver like a major foundation and think that’s what American philanthropy is all about.

But, actually, philanthropy in the U.S. is not just a story of moguls and big trusts. In fact, it’s not primarily about wealthy people at all.…

Putting ‘creativity’ into community development facilitates many goals

Pam Bailey, NeighborWorks America blogger | 10/1/2018 2:31:22 PM



San Francisco’s Chinatown faces a number of challenges, stemming back to its origins: Chinese immigrants to the city were often limited to living in the neighborhood due to discriminatory policies and practices, reinforced by a natural desire to seek out supportive environments. Over time, a strong sense of community developed. Today,…

Preserving Community Culture In the Midst of a Boom

An article in Next City details how LISC’s NYC Inclusive Creative Economy Fund is connecting local cultural institutions and artisanal manufacturers to much-needed capital, like the venerable La MaMa theater in the city’s East Village, where real estate has become prohibitively expensive. The fund has extended a $3.2 million line of credit to La MaMa, whose historic home needs a thorough renovation to survive—financing that banks and even the City don’t provide.

Maurice A. Jones On...(Episode #15)

A Home-Grown Arts Group Launches Youth Into the World of Design

When North Minneapolis natives DeAnna and Roger Cummings founded Juxtaposition Arts (JXTA), they envisioned “a space where kids could have the opportunity to understand what they're good at.” More than two decades later (and with help from LISC), JXTA is a creative and entrepreneurial outlet for hundreds of young people, a force of community revitalization, and a flourishing anchor institution capable of leading a $14 million capital campaign to expand their impact into more neighborhoods, for more youth.
