As governments cut back their grant-giving, who’s keeping nonprofits afloat? Businesses and private donors. For that, everyone should give a tip of the hat.
“The grants are drying up at a rapid clip, yet the needs keep pouring in.”
That’s a quote we hear often in our newsroom, our business office and in the advertising realm these days.
The programs nonprofits provide are too vital to lose, we’re often told. It’s true. Nonprofits fill community needs that government can’t — or won’t — perform. Nonprofits are flexible and agile, able to change at a moment’s notice.
