The National Day of Racial Healing is a time for contemplating our shared values and engaging together on #HowWeHeal from the effects of racism. Launched on Jan. 17, 2017, this day is observed every year on the Tuesday following Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

William, CEO of United Way Worldwide, Cristina Alesci, Chief Corporate Affairs Officer of Chobani and former CNN correspondent; and Avera Martin, a Harvard-trained civil rights attorney, advocate, nonprofit founder, television host, legal and social issues commentator, and author. 

 

2022 Nonprofit Trends Report

 

Cerini & Associates and the Nonprofit Resource Hub created the Nonprofit Trends Report for the nonprofit sector to help prepare for the upcoming year. This year's guide features guidance from NPW Executive Director Jan Fisher and NPW Board member Ron Abad. 

"Nonprofits need to band together rather than compete for government and other contracts; they need to set acceptable standards for wages and compensation that all agree to adhere to so they are competitively evaluated for funding on quality and what they offer vs. who will come in at the lowest bid." - Jan Fisher, Executive Director, NPW
