Best Kept Secret

Best Kept Secret in the Nonprofit Sector
Norman Olshansky: President
NFP Consulting Resources, Inc.

It seems strange to me that one of the best resources for nonprofit leaders and professionals, has such a low profile.

This resource was founded in 1992 by an individual who saw a need for nonprofit leaders and professionals to “connect, share and discuss pertinent challenges and issues”.

Even though over 100,000 people are subscribers today, few in our sector know about it. This resource has listserves, newsletters and courses for those who are interested or involved in nonprofit fundraising, technology, grants, boards, planned giving, foundations, governance, management, legal issues, major gifts, capital campaigns, consulting and more. Do you have an interest in nonprofit public relations, human resources, risk management, events, research, stewardship, accounting, or volunteers? You can connect with thousands of others who want to share ideas, answer questions, and provide support for each other. This is a resource where you will find newcomers and seasoned professionals.

If you are looking for reviews of new books related to philanthropy and nonprofits, they provide that too.

Do you prefer to chat online, communicate by video, or audio? You can do all three through this resource.

Looking for a career in the nonprofit sector? Yes, they have job listings too.

I have been an avid fan and subscriber for years and find it to be an excellent resource for those who are serious about their involvement within the nonprofit sector.

It started and continues today under the leadership of Steve Nill, lawyer, technology guru and nonprofit consultant. I still don’t know how they are able to provide such an extensive service at such a low subscription. They do not advertise broadly which is why you may not have heard about them.

Too good to be true? Not at all. Check out www.CharityChannel.com
