Survey snapshot #2: according to respondents, a majority of funders ask nonprofits for output or outcome metrics, but only 3% of funders always cover the costs associated with measuring these metrics (while 34% never cover these costs). What can we do to make sure impact measurement is fully funded?

"A new generation of digital-savvy nonprofits is enabling donors not only to go online to donate a few dollars anywhere, any time, but also to receive direct feedback on how their gift is helping transform lives or solve social problems."
Rapid advances in technology are changing philanthropy in fundamental ways—making it potentially more rational, effective, collaborative, transparent, and democratic.

Excellent interview with Hilary Pennington of the Ford Foundation: "I've been thinking about the perennial way in which foundations starve nonprofits through "project-itis" -- consistently funding them to do particular kinds of projects without paying attention to the organization as a whole.... It does seem as if there is a beginning of a healthy pushback on this issue...."

Survey snapshot #3: We asked nonprofits about the challenges they face. The top challenge? Achieving long-term financial sustainability. Other top challenges: staff retention and the ability to offer competitive wages, raising funding that covers full costs, and developing cash reserves. Visit nff.org/survey for more.

President Obama visited Lehman College in the Bronx to support My Brother's Keeper Alliance, a nonprofit aimed at helping young men of color reach educational and economic goals. "For these are all our children. We will all profit by, or pay for, whatever they become," he said.
