Our podcast is live!

Over the past two years, we have been experimenting with audio recordings — occasionally supplementing the local content in our Not-for-Profit News newsletter. We recently decided to fully commit to that venture by launching a weekly podcast. It’s new territory for us. Shari Finnell, our newsletter editor, and I are still a little nervous and finding our way with the help of a consultant. Despite our uneasiness, we have managed to record six podcasts and are enjoying getting to know local leaders better and further explore topics focused on the Indianapolis nonprofit community.   
We began publishing our podcast on April 28 and plan to release a new conversation every Thursday. Make sure you subscribe to tune into our conversations with nonprofit leaders and get an inside look at what’s happening in our nonprofit community. 

In the first episodes, you’ll hear from Ann Murtlow, as she reflects on her years as CEO of United Way of Central Indiana and her plans for her upcoming retirement. You’ll also tune into an exchange with Dana Stone at the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra and Kim Gutfreund of Dance Kaleidoscope. They discuss how performing arts organizations are emerging from the pandemic and their plans for a collaborative concert on May 20-22.
Whether you’re driving, exercising, or getting ready for work, subscribe to hear the latest about our Central Indiana nonprofit community.

As always, we welcome your topic ideas and constructive feedback. We’re looking for a mix of interesting ideas and interesting people from the various nonprofits across central Indiana. Contact Bryan Orander with your podcast ideas.

Spring Nonprofit Check-in Survey is Still Open
It’s been more than two years since the world almost seemed to stop. Today, the rhythm of life seems to be accelerating to get back to some sense of normal. But what does the new normal look like at your organization? You may be wondering the same thing about other local nonprofits. 
Please take 3-5 minutes to tell us how your organization is emerging from this crisis.
No research or prep needed, no financials or headcounts requested.
Your perspective will allow us to share a snapshot of current local nonprofit trends, including remote, in-person and hybrid work, facility use, board meetings/operations and staff turnover.
Thank you! We look forward to sharing the results next month.
New Charitable Advisors Nonprofit Job Board
went LIVE on April 25

We are officially migrating from our old job board to the new with April 25 as the big transition date. All jobs can be viewed on the new job board but jobs placed before 11am on April 25 will link back to the old job board for applications until the job postings expire.
Employers - If you are placing a job ad, our new job board platform allows you to upload your ads directly, ads will immediately go live, and you can pay by credit card.   
If you haven’t set up your employer account yet, here’s a short video to walk you through set up and placing your first ad. Use “75Off” to save $75 on ALL ads placed by May 20, 2022.
Job Seekers – You will still apply through the old job board to job ads placed through April 25. For jobs placed after midday on April 25, job seekers will set up a new account and apply on the new job board.  

We want to recognize board leaders
For most board members, board leadership roles come with a commitment and investment of time and resources to support a cause they care about. However, for the individual who steps up to serve as board president or chair, the role comes with the assumption of overall responsibility for the nonprofit and guiding the organization’s path forward.  

As we continue to share news of board leaders who have taken the helm, we encourage you to recognize and thank these individuals for tackling the role, because as a community member you recognize the value of his or her investment to help keep the sector strong.  

If you want to announce your organization’s new board leader, please send name, position and a head shot HERE.

We are open to other ways we can support and recognize board leaders. Send us your thoughts or tell us a story about a board leader who has made a difference in your organization. Share your ideas with Bryan Orander, president.
