Are You Among the Best Nonprofits to Work for?
Here’s an opportunity to showcase the excellence of your nonprofit as a workplace. We know of the great things you do for constituents and the community – but you probably do great things for your employees as well.
Here’s a brief description of eligibility and the assessment process, for complete information visit the website: http://www.bestnonprofitstoworkfor.com/index.php?option=com_frontpage&Itemid=1
To be eligible for consideration, nonprofits must meet the following criteria:
- Must be in business a minimum of 1 year
- Must be a nonprofit organization with 501 (c) 3 status*
- Have a facility in the United States
- Have a minimum of 15 employees in the United States**
- An organization may enter as a group of nonprofits or as an individual organization as long as each participating organization is a separate legal entity (separate subsidiary). Branch offices may not enter separately from their parent nonprofit unless they are separate legal entities.
The assessment is a two-part process designed to gather detailed data about each participating nonprofit. In part one, the employer completes a questionnaire and in part two, employees of the nonprofit complete an employee survey.
The collected information from the two instruments will be combined to produce a detailed set of data enabling the analysts to determine the strengths and opportunities of the participating nonprofits.
The registration deadline is October 11, 2013.
National Volunteer Week is about inspiring, recognizing and encouraging people to seek out imaginative ways to engage in their communities. It’s about demonstration to the nation that, by working together, we have the fortitude to meet our challenges and accomplish our goals.
Sponsored by Points of Light – National Volunteer Week was established in 1974 and has grown exponentially each subsequent year, with literally thousands of volunteer projects and special events scheduled throughout the week.
- If you’ve been or are a volunteer – what inspires you to give your time?
- And, if you’re on staff at a nonprofit – what have your volunteers meant to the success of your mission?
We’d love to hear your stories.
We tip our hat to all volunteers in appreciation of their contribution to the greater good.
Conferences like AFP are a great time to reconnect with our clients and share great ideas learned at the sessions and from other nonprofit leaders. If you’re going attend, please be sure to stop by and say hello. Randy, Kent and Kevin will be at the conference to talk about the aspiration you have for your organization and the latest news on Orange Leap and MPX. We’ll have some Orange Leap goodies at the booth to thank you for stopping by. We hope to see you there!
