Staffing and Leadership Challenges?
New Ways We Can Help
I was on a call with a nonprofit leader this morning when she shared that “Our organization will never be the same after the past two years of COVID.”
Are you in a similar situation? Do you have a renewed focus on recruiting, retention, people skills, staff development or succession planning? Unless you had an exceptionally strong and committed team before the pandemic, it is likely your organization is struggling with staffing. And, if your team is fortunate to be stable, you likely have some retirements and planned transitions in your future.
For more than 20 years, Charitable Advisors has been supporting central Indiana nonprofits by connecting them with capable staff through our newsletter job ads and nearly 100 ED/CEO searches. We frequently meet nonprofit professionals who tell us, “Every job I have gotten was through a Not-for-profit News job posting.”  
In response to the recent surge in the needs of nonprofits around staff and talent development, we reconnected with a former colleague who has been building an HR consulting business at the same time that we were growing the Not-for-profit News and our nonprofit consulting. JoDee Curtis and her team of HR professionals at Purple Ink work with a wide range of organizations across the community and the nation. They have numerous nonprofit clients but liked the idea of partnering with us to offer deeper nonprofit knowledge and connections.
Not Just ED/CEO Search, but Finance, HR and more
This means that you can now reach out to us with all of your recruiting and HR needs. We can partner with you to fill positions, explore compensation, expand your internal recruiting and retention strategies, staff coaching, or develop your performance management process.

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.
