Opportunities in Lean Times
Fieldstone Alliance is one of my go-to sites. I find them to be incredibly useful (and relevant) when it comes to nonprofit management, and funding issues in particular. One of the pages on their site is Opportunities in Lean Times, and it is stocked with fully-linked content on dealing with funding challenges in this trying economic climate. The page is split into 4 sections:
- Actions You Can Take Right Away
- Longer-Term Actions
- Information on the Economic Stimulus Funds
- Other Useful Resources
While it's all great content, I think people could really use some guidance related to the Economic Stimulus Funds, so I was particularly pleased to see them discuss the topic. Check out all 4 sections, though, and while you're at it, consider signing up for their newsletter, Tools You Can Use (I think it comes twice a month). Most of the time I end up clipping it to an electronic file and referencing it later on. I rarely get stuff from them that just doesn't interest me.
