The Martin-Springer Institute invites you to nominate someone for the 2006 Moral Courage Awards.

These awards educate and inspire others to also exhibit moral courage.

What is moral courage? People who exhibit moral courage: recognize that something is wrong or unfair and oppose it; stand up against prejudice, unfairness or bullying behavior; take a stand that is unpopular or may even harm their reputation or character; advocate for others even in the face of those who have more power than themselves.

The Martin-Springer Institute is looking for community members who have exhibited moral courage. If you know someone like this, nominate her/him simply by writing a one page description of how she/he exemplified moral courage. Please use the description above as a guide. You may complete this form by mailing your letter with the attached nomination form completed by February 17.

Thank you for your nomination. Each nomination reminds us of the hope that we can move our society forward in positive directions.

Piper Trust Commits $50 Million to "Personalized Medicine"

The Virginia G. Piper Trust, in Scottsdale, has pledged $50 million to boost the state's effort in so-called "personalized medicine," marking the single-largest gift in state history to spur biomedical advancements, The Arizona Republic reported on Jan. 15. The gift will be paid out over five years and includes the creation of 10 endowed Piper Chairs to attract leading scientists, who will receive up to $5 million each. "That's the dazzling part," said Judy Jolley Mohraz, president and chief executive officer of the trust. "Each chair will get $500,000 to spend how they wish and, we hope, the same prestige as the nationwide MacArthur chairs to recognize the stellar accomplishments of the research."

Until now, the Piper Trust has focused its giving on children, the elderly, arts and culture, religious groups and health care. But the trust's directors decided they want to redirect some of its $26 million in annual donations in Maricopa County to personalized medicine, "things that matter to the individual," Mohraz said. The gift also could pave the way for large donations to local biotech from nonprofits, companies and individuals. For the complete article, see: http://www.azcentral.com/news/articles/0115pipergift.html.


AAGP Seeks Content-Area Experts for Grant Credentialing Process

The American Association of Grant Professionals is taking the lead to uphold the highest standards of ethical and professional practice among grant practitioners by creating the nation's first valid and viable credentialing process for grant professionals. We've run updates on this process before -- you can find out more at http://www.grantprofessionals.org/credentialing/cred_overview.php . All work at this point is being done under the auspices of Grant Professional Certification Institute, or GPCI. An affiliate of AAGP, GPCI is overseeing and financing the study to define certification standards.

GPCI is now recruiting a pool of 75 to 100 "content-area experts" nationwide to assist in the validation of the testing tool. According to GPCI: "As we develop professional credential standards, we will use the expertise of these current leaders in our field who understand the required knowledge and skills that best define our profession. They will represent grant seekers, grant writers, grant developers, grant managers, funders, policy makers, trainers, legal and financial consultants, evaluators, authors-people around the nation who steer our profession."

Maryn Boess of Just Grants! Arizona is a founding board member of GPCI and a designated content-area expert, and is helping recruit additional content-area experts for the test development process. If you're interested in finding out more and perhaps being nominated to participate, please email your expression of interest and relevant experience to Maryn at mboess@azgrants.com . Please be sure to include your phone number for follow-up.

Identifying, cultivating and soliciting planned giving/endowment donors. Developing and establishing endowment and gift acceptance policies. Developing donor stewardship programs. Marketing and Communication strategies for planned giving and endowment. Measuring and reporting success. Engaging the Board in support of an endowment building program.

This program is appropriate for organizations with an organizational history of ten or more years, organizations that have a full time development staff and committed CEO and an adequate number of individual donors (1,000+), and organizations that are willing to join LEAVE A LEGACY and the Planned Giving Round Table, if not a current member.

To learn more about the program and determine if it is appropriate for your organization, please plan to attend the orientation meeting on Tuesday, January 31, 2006 at 8:30 am at the Catholic Community Foundation. Please RSVP your attendance to leavealegacyaz@qwest.net or at 602-275-2210.

Participate in the eNonprofit Benchmarks Study

N-TEN is part of the steering committee for the eNonprofit Benchmarks Study that is being led by M+R Strategic Services. The eNonprofit Benchmarks Study is collecting and analyzing key online communications data from nonprofit organizations engaged in online activism, online fundraising, and email messaging. The study will measure email open rates, advocacy response rates, online fundraising conversion rates, paid email recruitment trends, and more. The study will establish nonprofit online communications performance benchmarks, giving nonprofits a tool for evaluating the effectiveness of their own online programs, and to compare it to those of similar organizations.

You can help our study! If you work for a nonprofit organization engaged in online activism, online fundraising, and email messaging, please take our confidential online survey sharing some of your organization’s online communications metrics:
(Only one survey response per organization, please.)

The survey includes questions relating to your organization’s budget and staffing, email open rates, response rates, web statistics, etc., and thus may require some research. Any data collected will remain confidential and will only be used in the aggregate. Your organization’s data will not be used individually.

The eNonprofit Benchmarks Study, to be released in early 2006, is sponsored by Advocacy Institute and M+R Strategic Services. It is co-sponsored by Beaconfire, Convio, Donor Digital, GetActive Software, and Kintera. The study also received generous support from the Beldon Fund and the Surdna Foundation. For more information about the eNonprofit Benchmarks Study, please contact Ben Smith at bensmith@mrss.com.
