Comprehensive Study to Examime Milwaukee-Area Nonprofit Sector


credit:

Project Pivot, a Milwaukee-based capacity-building nonprofit supported by Bader Philanthropies and the Northwestern Mutual Foundation, is exploring Milwaukee's nonprofit landscape by conducting a comprehensive study to understand them better.

The effort works in partnership with Helen Bader Institute for Nonprofit Management at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee on the project.

The effort comes after several nonprofits have stopped their operations in recent years. According to Shelly Schnupp, the managing director of Project Pivot and leader of the initiative, nonprofits and their leaders, volunteers and other key stakeholders must be heard and understood to effectively support nonprofit organizations in the area.

Project Pivot will examine other nonprofit support models on a national scale. Eventually, the group will address and conduct strategies to connect the gaps in Milwaukee's nonprofit sector and draft a plan to be released in December. Read the Entire Article
