Politics and Nonprofit Tax Exemptions Collide in 2020

by Sid Davis

Last month, the nonprofit realm was greeted by the surprising news that the state of New York had filed a lawsuit against the National Rifle Association, seeking the dissolution in its entirety of one of the largest and most influential nonprofits in the U.S. What exactly is the NRA alleged to have done? The majority of the misdeeds involve improper usage of funds, including making extravagant personal purchases. For example, NRA president Wayne LaPierre is accused of using contributions to charter jets to the Bahamas eight times, as well as spending $12,000 to install a relative in a fancy hotel. He's also accused of using funds to buy loyalty and silence.

Partnership RX: What's Slowing Your Collaboration Down? (NEW)

Thursday, September 17, 2020

By now we all really understand that thinking and working collaboratively "pays" in many ways for our organizations and the community as a whole. But that doesn't mean creating and sustaining a meaningful partnership is trouble-free—have you noticed? Take these three scenarios: 1) Your community collaboration seems to have stalled out. Your team is losing steam and you can't figure out why, much less what to do about it. 2) Yikes! You all were sailing along beautifully and suddenly an issue you thought your team had sorted out a long time ago is rearing its ugly head and jamming the works . . . again. 3) Conflict! All right, we're not talking open arguments here, but some really strong differences of opinion have surfaced and you're all spinning around in circles and never really getting anything resolved. Sound familiar? Good news—you're not alone. All these "problems" aren’t really problems at all, but symptoms of common and predictable partnership challenges. And every one is fixable and even preventable. In this lively webinar Maryn Boess, Founder of GrantsMagic U, will explore three powerful, simple tools for understanding what's going on when your collaboration seems to be going wrong, and what to do about it.
