National Volunteer Week debuted in the United States in 1974 and has continued to grow every year since. In his proclamation declaring National Volunteer Week, President Richard Nixon urged all Americans to observe the week by seeking out a volunteer opportunity. He also called upon all communities to “recognize volunteers by observing the week with special ceremonies to honor those who have given countless hours for the betterment of our communities and the American way of life.”

Since then, individuals, offices, schools, and teams volunteer their time on this week to make their communities better.

Diversifying Boards Means Ceding Control—Are White Nonprofit Leaders Ready?

Our gratitude to the 110 organizations that took time to complete our lengthy survey on nonprofit diversity, and the nonprofit leaders and community members that met with us for interviews or focus groups. This is a topic that impacts us all. We are excited to share our findings with you this spring and partner with you to seek meaningful solutions.

An initiative in Springfield, Illinois seeks to diversify nonprofit boards. An unanswered question remains, though: are white leaders willing to yield power?

The Institute of Nonprofit Leadership and Community Development is extremely proud to announce the winner of our first Student Philanthropy Fund Global Giving Award: The Mooncatcher Project. The Mooncatcher Project is a locally-based organization that works to keep girls in school and "optimize girls' lives worldwide by removing barriers related to menstruation." http://www.mooncatcher.org. Our students did an excellent job of identifying and researching many worthy organizations doing international development work. We were fortunate to have Ellie von Wellsheim, Founder and Executive Director of the Mooncatcher Project, join us to share her inspiring work and story.

Next, the students will be announcing the winner of The Student Philanthropy Fund Local Service Award to a nonprofit making a significant impact in the local community. Many thanks to Dr. Susan Appe for launching this inaugural program and course with the Institute of Nonprofit Leadership and Community Development and Rockefeller College!
