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

Give a Ride, Close a Gap

In a blog describing the new $11 million Vaccine Access Fund, a partnership of LISC, Uber, Paypal and Walgreens, LISC's President & CEO Lisa L.

A Letter to the White House Announces $11 Million Vaccine Access Fund

In a letter to the Biden-Harris Administration, which has called for corporate America to help in the fight to end the pandemic, the CEOs of Uber, Paypal, Walgreens and LISC announced a new Vaccine Access Fund that will connect people with free rides to COVID-19 vaccine sites.
