Nonprofits professionals must have awareness of the specific funding priorities of large corporations before requesting grants or sponsorship.  According to the Washington Gas charitable giving website their    primary funding areas are environment, health and education. In PEPCO's 2015 Corporate Social Responsibility Report the funding priorities (listed in order of donation amount) were civic engagement, youth/education, business initiatives/workforce development, arts/culture and environment/energy.

Did You Know.....
Starting December 1, the Department of Labor's new overtime rules will take effect. Employees earning less than $47,476 (except teachers, lawyers and doctors) are eligible for overtime if they work more than 40 hours. The current salary threshold is $23,660.  

Are you ready for this change? Resources are available through the DC Bar Association (free webinars have been recorded and other information is also available on their website) for nonprofits regarding the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and overtime regulations.  Maryland Nonprofits is also offering several workshops on this topic.
