Why can Blue Avocado have the irreverent and controversial articles that we do? Whether it's taking on sacred cows, railing against conventional "best practices," or poking fun at nonprofit life, Blue Avocado's stories are of a kind that aren't found elsewhere.
We can do these articles because we don't have to be afraid of offending foundations or the powers that be. And that's because so much of our support comes from nonprofits and individual readers like you. Please take a moment to help keep us journalistically independent by joining/donating here. Thank you!
* We've had to postone Part 2 of the story on the Decline & Fall of the Vanguard Foundation to the October 5, 2010 issue. So many people have stepped forward to tell their stories that we need more time.
* This issue check out how the Just Awards moved the needle, what it's like for men in the female-majority nonprofit sector, and how we answer the question: How much to pay the executive director?
* We're having our first Blue Avocado Meetup . . . join an informal conversation Wednesday, October 6 in Washington, D.C. at 3 pm . . . email email@example.com for location and more info. Hope to see you there! Jan Masaoka
