Principles of Effectiveness for Nonprofit Organizations

The Principles of Effectiveness for Nonprofit Organizations program is a tool that helps nonprofits assess their organization's strengths and weaknesses, create a plan to address what training they need, and undergo a peer review process that affirms the organization's advanced level of capacity.

This process essentially affords nonprofits the opportunity to find what weaknesses exist in a reassuring environment, and a roadmap that leads to a more effective nonprofit organization. It's simply building the capacity of organizations through self-examination. To learn more about this program, please click here.

25.6% of Arizona Residents Volunteer, Groundbreaking Study Shows

Approximately 25.6 percent of Arizona residents volunteer, according to “Volunteering in America: State Trends and Rankings,” a groundbreaking study recently released by the Corporation for National and Community Service. The study places Arizona’s 45th among the states for volunteering activities. Highlights from the study:

  • Arizona was one of only eight states in the nation in which the number of volunteers increased each year since 2002. The number of volunteers increased from 921,400 in 2002 to more than 1.1 million in 2005. Arizona was only one of five states in the nation in which the proportion of persons volunteering increased each year since 2002. From 2002 to 2005, the volunteering rate increased from 23.3% to 25.6%. The rate of volunteering for 2003 to 2005 in Arizona (24.9%) was lower than the 3-year rate for the West overall (29.0%) and the nation (28.8%).
  • Nearly 30% of persons aged 55 to 64 years volunteered in Arizona. This was the age group with the highest rate of volunteering.

The study analyzes data collected over the past four years by the U.S. Census Bureau in its annual Volunteer Supplement to the Current Population Survey. It is the first study to break down volunteering habits and patterns by state and region. To view the full report, which features a two-page profile for each state, go to www.nationalservice.gov.

Also according to the study, the typical volunteer in Arizona is a white female, age 45 who volunteers an average of 52 hours for a religious organization engaged in coaching, refereeing, teaching, mentoring and tutoring. The study also found that residents of Arizona on average each year contribute 158,631,520 hours of volunteer service totaling $2,861,712,614 of service to the State.

The Who, What, Why, When and Wherefores of Grant Reviewing – AAGP Arizona
June 27 (Multiple Locations)

Grant reviewing is sometimes thought of as a mystical process that involves the reviewer holding your grant application against his or her forehead, closing their eyes and saying "Feels fundable to me." You write what you believe is a Grade A grant application only to have it picked apart at best and at worse, receive no comments at all, other than a one sentence letter telling you it wasn't funded. These were the experiences that drove me to enter the world of grant reviewing. Four years and countless reviewed grant applications later the mystery has been solved for me. Join us on June 27th for an audio-conference course that will enlighten you, make you laugh and perhaps improve your grantwriting skills.

LIVE audio-conference Tuesday, June 27, 9:00-11:30am. Sign-in begins at 9:00 am, audio-conference start time 9:30 sharp.
