1. The Chronicle of Philanthropy reported that “The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation has decided to stop issuing new education grants in its home region of Kansas City while it reassesses its mission in local schools.”
2. Katya’s Non-Profit Marketing Blog announced that Network for Good is currently hiring for a wide variety of positions.
3. The Charity Navigator Blog published a piece entitled “Car Donations a Thing of the Past?” This piece discusses a newly passed governmental program created “to stimulate the sales of automobiles and encourage people to trade in their less fuel efficient vehicles.” This program offers people cash incentives for trading in their cars for more efficient vehicles. Although this program does encourage people to be more environmentally friendly, it is projected that this will decrease the number of charitable car donations.
5. The Philanthropy Journal posted a small report entitled “Some Wealthy Donors Still Giving.” This report states that a new study has found that some wealthy U.S. and U.K. donors are still donating to their top priority charities.
