My last few posts have focused on the downturn in the economy and how it already is, or soon might, affect the social sector. It seems to be a topic on everyone’s mind.
I wrote an article that was just published today in Texas Nonprofits online magazine, entitled, “Social Innovation Provides Hope in the Uncertainty,” that explores how new models like social entrepreneurship, social enterprise and strategic fundraising could actually be very helpful, especially in times like these.
Also, Greenlights for Nonprofit Success, Austin’s nonprofit management center, is hosting a panel and discussion on October 30th to talk about how the economy may affect the sector and what can be done. It should be very interesting; I plan to attend.
