Nonprofit Financial Health: New Tools for Analysis

Thursday, May 3, 2012 at 3:00 p.m. ET

GuideStar has partnered with the Nonprofit Finance Fund (NFF) to develop Financial SCAN, the first data platform to offer a comprehensive, multi-year analysis of a nonprofit's financial condition

. Financial SCAN avoids arbitrary measures such as overhead spending, which have no bearing on a nonprofit's stability or the effectiveness of its programs. By focusing instead on key trends and metrics that together help tell an organization's financial story, Financial SCAN equips nonprofits, grantmakers, and advisors to incorporate insights into decisions that advance the likelihood of mission success. Join Pam Jowdy, senior product manager, GuideStar, and Rebecca Thomas, vice president, strategy and innovation, Nonprofit Finance Fund, as they share the new Financial SCAN analysis and discuss how it can help demystify nonprofit finance for nonprofits, funders, and professional advisors alike. Register Now

State Charitable Solicitation Statutes

Tuesday, May 8, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. ET

Thirty-nine states and the District of Columbia havecharitable solicitation statutes

 that generally require charities soliciting contributions and, in most cases, their for-profit fundraising professionals to register prior to soliciting contributions or providing fundraising counsel services. Therefore, it is critical for charities and their fundraising professionals to know about, and be in compliance with, these statutes to avoid significant fines and penalties. Attendees will learn about these statutes from a former state charity regulator and former President of the National Association of State Charity Officials. Equally important, charities and their fundraising professionals who have been operating in violation of these statutes will learn the most appropriate strategies for getting into compliance.Register Now

American Banker Reports on LISC’s Black Economic Development Fund

A recent article in American Banker describes the why and how of LISC’s Black Economic Development Fund - a means to direct private capital to Black banks, CDFIs and other minority businesses. The $50 million from Netflix and Costco seeding the fund, with more in the pipeline, is a signal of a widespread “social-consciousness awakening that [the wealth gap] is a problem and its sources are systemic racism,” explains George Ashton, LISC EVP and the fund’s manager, in the story.

LISC, with Top Housing Groups, Calls for Emergency Rental Relief

In a statement issued today, LISC joins with Enterprise, National Housing Trust, Stewards of Affordable Housing for the Future, Housing Partnership Network, Housing Assistance Council and Leading Age to urge federal action on rental assistance that will protect residents and affordable housing providers affected by the pandemic. “Relief is overdue,” the groups warn, “and we can’t afford to wait any longer.”

A Pledge to Keep Small Businesses Open for Business

A $15 million donation from Wells Fargo, part of their Open for Business Fund, will help LISC match flexible Kiva crowdfunded loans for entrepreneurs of color across the U.S. Our pre-Covid collaboration with Wells and Kiva in Puerto Rico and other disinvested places has proven the transformative benefits for individuals, families and regional economies when small businesses get fast access to capital in a crisis.
