Nonprofits and the Quest for Clean Money

by Sid Davis

Italian author Roberto Saviano wrote a blockbuster book in 2013 entitled ZeroZeroZero, and in it he suggested that illegal drug profits, which run to hundreds of billions of dollars yearly, are not adjacent to the global economic system, but are in fact indispensable to it. Antonio Maria Costa, former Executive Director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, said illegal drug money saved the global banking industry from collapse during the last recession.

Any nonprofit organization would agree that knowingly taking donations generated by the illegal drug trade would be unethical. The Sackler family’s drug profits are all, ostensibly, legal. But historically, law has often lagged behind what the public believed to be right. Only a century ago U.S. law agreed that women should not vote, and a century earlier agreed that human beings of African descent could be owned. OxyContin is legal, but there’s a growing belief in the nonprofit sector that taking money derived from the trade in prescription opioids is unethical.

Writing Capacity Building Grants

Wednesday, October 30, 2019

Capacity building grants are unique. While many best practices in writing operational or program grant requests apply to developing capacity building grant requests, there are some critical differences that need to be addressed to create the strongest application possible. During the 90-minute webinar, Alice Ruhnke will define and discuss the fundamentals of capacity building grant requests, highlight the key components that differ from “regular” grants, and outline ways to identify funders who provide capacity building grants. Throughout the session, common mistakes in writing capacity building grant requests will be discussed and remedied. This webinar is appropriate for individuals who have a basic understanding of grant fundamentals and would like to apply those concepts specifically to capacity building grants.
