We'll also talk about the pleasant surprises that many groups find when they understand and embrace the changes that come. Participants are welcome to share their own stories or questions around executive transition.

OMB Uniform Guidance: How New Government Grants Reforms Can Benefit Your Organization
Center Members ONLY - FREE (email the Center for recording)

Did you know that the federal government now mandates that nonprofits must be reimbursed for some or all of their indirect costs (e.g., lights, rent, administrative support, etc.) when performing services for governments at all levels – local, state, federal – when federal funds are being used (either directly or via state or local ‘pass through’ agencies)?

The Center for Non-Profits and the National Council of Nonprofits presented a webinar to provide the most recent information about these changes and how your organization can start taking advantage of them. 

The session featured National Council of Nonprofits' Policy Specialist Beth Bowsky and Vice President for Public Policy David L. Thompson, two of the nation's top experts and leading non-profit advocacy voices on the issue.

Topics discussed:

  • What the major changes in the OMB Uniform Guidance are that will affect your organization;
  • What your organization needs to do to take advantage of and comply with the new rules;
  • What you can do to ensure state and local governments implement the changes as OMB intended.

Center members, order this special insider's look at what the new OMB Uniform Guidance will mean for your organization's government contracting work, and how we can work together to build on the promise of the new guidance.

Accidents or charges of liability  involving volunteers not only cause physical harm, they also are distraction, can damage staff and volunteer morale, hurt the organization’s reputation, and increase insurance costs. Learn how to identify your own risks, and manage them in a way that will work even as staff and volunteers come and go.  

Learn how to: 

  • Recognize common risks arising out of volunteer involvement in a nonprofit organization;
  • Identify risk exposure specific to your own organization;
  • Develop practical ways to minimize your organization’s risk and respond when incidents occur;
  • Implement a risk management system that allows everyone in the organization to know what to do, and not have to improvise.
