Fiscal Year 2009 (October 1, 2008--September 30, 2009)

A sharp downturn in the nation's and region's economy beginning in 2008 created new challenges, particularly for nonprofits whose own resources were shrinking in the face of rising demands for their services. NPCC's own challenges included sustaining membership growth, sustaining core programs, developing new initiatives to help members and other nonprofits meet growing challenges, and responding to growing demand for information and guidance. NPCC continued to implement key initiatives in the past year within its five-year Strategic Plan for 2006-2010 ( info/StratPlan.htm), while developing new ones to address the downturn in the economy. During 2008-2009, we conducted the third annual New York Times Company Nonprofit Excellence

Awards, continued a growing volume of nonprofit-government relations work, worked hard to maintain NPCC's membership growth, increased benefits for members and developed new program initiatives. Progress on goals and strategies during NPCC's Fiscal Year 2009 are summarized below according to the main goals and strategies.

Expanding Information and Guidance

NPCC's work to keep New York nonprofits informed and to help them connect with valuable resources is rated by our members as our most valued service, which relates to our high level of membership retention. This work continued to be a major and expanding focus for NPCC's modest complement of 6 full-time staff and 2 consultants. Our accomplishments included: Conducting the third annual New York Times Company Nonprofit Excellence Awards: The Awards are a collaborative venture of the Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York (NPCC), The New York Times Community Affairs Department and Philanthropy New York (formerly NYRAG). The program's focus is educational: (1) to encourage excellent management and governance practices by nonprofits themselves, with tracking of resulting management improvements by participating nonprofits in key areas outlined in the Seven Areas of Nonprofit Excellence document (www. info/7AreasofNonprofitExcellence(2010).pdf); and, (2) to raise the sector's and the general public's awareness of excellent management in the nonprofit sector. Additional financial and in-kind support in the past year was provided by Social Enterprise Programs in Executive Education at Columbia Business School, the Surdna Foundation, McGladrey & Pullen, LLP, the Fund for the City of New York, The New York Community Trust, the Altman Foundation, The Clark Foundation, The Venable Foundation, the Brooklyn Community Foundation, Wachovia Bank and the Hagedorn Foundation. Social Enterprise Programs in Executive Education at Columbia Business School doubled its in-kind support in 2009 through a matching grant from The Clark Foundation, enabling each finalist organization to receive a scholarship for key staff. In the fall of 2008, we conducted five Application Clinics for the New York Times Company Nonprofit Excellence Awards, including two in Long Island and one in Westchester, attended by more than 217 nonprofit managers representing 196 organizations. We received 86 qualified Part One applications, a modest increase from the previous year. Applications were re3

viewed by a 26-member expert Selection Committee, with deep and broad knowledge of the seven targeted areas of nonprofit management. Applicants, upon request, received telephone feedback about the strengths and weaknesses of their applications, based on detailed comments on their applications by Selection Committee members. The review of Part One applications yielded 10 semifinalists. Subsequent review of Part Two applications resulted in 6 finalists, all of which participated in a final round of site visits. All finalists participated in a Best Practices Workshop and Awards ceremony on June 18, 2009, at TheTimesCenter, drawing a record 353 nonprofit managers, board members and others. The Workshop consisted of presentations by each of six finalist teams ­ comprised of an executive director and a board member from each finalist organization ­ responding to questions from moderator Jack Rosenthal, Pulitzer Prize winner and (then) President of The New York Times Company Foundation. Finalists spoke to the specific management strengths, strategies and practices that had led to their selection as finalists. There was special emphasis on managing during the financial crisis and extra time allotted to audience questions and answers. Presentations at the Awards ceremony and answers from the finalists during site visits clearly revealed deep involvement by each organization's key stakeholders. Numerous participating organizations emphasized the benefits of applying as a team; for many, this was the first time they had ever undertaken such an intense review of their management practices. A total of $40,000 was awarded, with $25,000 going to the grand prize winner for Overall Management Excellence and three other award winners each receiving a $5,000 cash prize. The four winners were featured in a full-page ad in the Times and other media, including the New York Nonprofit Press. Winners were: New York Cares, which meets pressing community needs by mobilizing caring New Yorkers in volunteer service (, for Overall Management Excellence; Groundwork, Inc., which helps empower youth and strengthens communities by educating and supporting children and families in and around public housing (, for Excellent Management; Vera Institute of Justice, which uses research, practice and innovation to help improve justice and safety across the United States and around the world (, for Excellent Management; and,


Neighborhood Economic Development Advocacy Project (NEDAP), which promotes community economic justice and elimination of discriminatory economic practices that harm communities and perpetuate inequality and poverty (, for Excellent Communications. More organizations applied than in previous years, and more reported management improvements due to participating in the application process. There was record attendance at the Best Practices Workshop and Awards Ceremony, as well as more media mentions following the event, and the program received increased financial support. In its first three years, the Awards program has received a total of 303 applications from nonprofit organizations representing a broad cross-section of the sector in the New York City area. There is strong evidence of positive impact by the program on participating applicant organizations: per follow-up evaluations, a total of 103 nonprofits have already made organizational improvements as a result of involvement in the 2009 New York Times Company Nonprofit Excellence Awards process, including attendance at application clinics, the Best Practices Workshop and Awards Ceremony and/or completion of the Awards application. Examples include: (1) Participating organizations encouraged junior staff to interact with senior management to better understand their organizations' bigger picture; (2) Completed applications were used to orient new staff and Board members; (3) Selection Committee feedback led to such best practice management changes as instituting conflict of interest policies, better financial reporting, and clarifying mission statements; (4) Winners reported increased funding and publicity. We also conducted a special Pathways to Excellence conference in November, 2008, featuring addresses by Naomi Levine, Chair and Executive Director of NYU's George H. Heyman, Jr., Center for Philanthropy and Fundraising, and Dr. Reynold Levy, President of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and author of Yours for the Asking. The conference included four hands-on workshops with winners of 2007 and 2008 Nonprofit Excellence Awards on outcomes tracking, financial management, communications and fundraising. The conference was attended by more than 350 nonprofit leaders, grantmakers and others, and was supported in part by the Ford Foundation's Good Neighbor program. Expanding information and advice to nonprofits: NPCC staff provided an increased volume of guidance and referrals in terms of time devoted to information, telephone calls, emails

and in-person requests. We use an annual survey to track the results of the work for member organizations, and the Fall, 2009, survey for the past fiscal year revealed that 469 organizations reported using our Information & Referral services (an increase from 244 in FY08), with 71% rating our referrals as very good or excellent. Expanding circulation of NPCC's newsletter, New York Nonprofits: Newsletter circulation expanded to 4,600 hard copies per month, with an average of 1,500 unique views of the online version per month. Online newsletter views actually decreased after we moved the Space Wanted/Available section from the newsletter to its own section on our website ( in May 2009. Space Ads alone average 469 monthly views, and are free for area 501(c) (3) organizations. We sent more related eblast notices to members on emerging events and resources, as well as responding to hundreds of queries from members concerning articles and seeking additional information, advice and referrals. Offered 58 free workshops: Free to members and providing expertise and information that benefit a wide range of nonprofits, 58 workshops were offered through September 30, 2009, with total registration at more than 4,256 (up from 2,700 in FY08) . Attendance at these workshops remained high, with most sold out. A particular focus this year was on a new, five-workshop series, Managing in Hard Times, offered in the spring of 2009, in collaboration with the Human Services Council and Lawyers Alliance for New York. The series featured a number of large-scale, practical workshops on Effects of the Federal Stimulus Package on New York Nonprofits, Strategic Alliances for Cost Savings, Negotiating Contractual Agreements, Human Resource Issues, and Lobbying in a Time of Crisis. We regularly updated and added topics and evaluated member interest in future topics on a wide range of management issues. Of 330 respondents to our three-month follow-up survey (for all workshops held the first half of our fiscal year), 164 reported organizational improvements. Helping nonprofits secure more than $14.2 million in government grants by using NPCC's Government Grants Information Service (GGIS): With support from the Dana Foundation, this NPCC web-based funding alert system ( enables nonprofit members to receive customized email notices of government grant opportunities targeted to their organizations' interests. Notices include critical funding details covering 66 different topic areas, expediting the process of identifying grant opportunities in time to meet deadlines. In addition to federal sources, we include funding opportunities from New York


City and State agencies. In our Fall, 2009 survey, 36 members reported over $14.2 million in grants and contracts received as a result of their GGIS subscription. More than 825 nonprofit professionals are current subscribers. "Who Does What?": Our regularly updated, online, interactive database of nonprofit technical assistance providers serving New York nonprofits, was updated regularly. NPCC's website continued to provide online access to our newsletter, the NPCC Member Directory, an Information Databank covering 190 + topics, and popular NPCC publications, such as the Employee Benefits Survey, Salary Survey, Emergency Preparedness guide, and more. NPCC's website received an average of 14,428 unique visitors per month during FY 2009. Expanding Financial Expertise by Nonprofit Managers: NPCC continued to expand members' knowledge of nonprofit financial issues by offering a range of workshops on these topics. We offered three, full­day workshops explaining changes to the IRS Form 990. The workshops, led by CPA Karen Kowgios, provided in-depth analysis of the new form as well as insight into implications to nonprofit governance of the questions asked on the 990. NPCC also offered workshops on Interpreting Financial Statements and Presenting Your Organization through Your Financial Statements. Led by the principals of EasyOffice, a company offering outsourced bookkeeping services to nonprofits (at a discount to NPCC members), the workshops were geared to small to mid-sized organizations. EasyOffice and NPCC also presented a workshop on the basics of budgeting at the 2009 Westchester Nonprofit Leadership Summit in May 2009.

Maintaining Membership

Nonprofit membership was at an all-time high of 1,804 at the outset of the fiscal year, then dropped to less than 1,650 by April, before rebounding to over 1,770 by September 30, 2009. Research revealed that in the face of the economic downturn, many nonprofits slashed all discretionary costs, even those like membership in NPCC that actually save them money. Another factor was the delayed impact of a new program of free six-month memberships in the latter half of the previous fiscal year. While initially successful in producing unprecedented numbers of new members, the renewal rate on the free memberships proved to be much lower than our normal renewal rate of 85-90%, primarily because six months proved to be too little time for most of the new free members to become familiar with NPCC's full membership benefits. In response to these findings, and with support from the Booth Ferris Foundation, we increased investment in recruiting and retaining

members, increased targeted efforts to reach areas outside Manhattan (Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester), strengthened marketing of member benefits to new and existing members, and targeted lapsing members for greater-than-normal follow-up. NPCC's Board also voted in February, 2009, to add a new responsibility to every Board member's job description, requiring that each Board member annually recruit an NPCC Ambassador, defined as a foundation head, head of a management support organization (e.g., Community Resource Exchange), or head of a nonprofit association (e.g., Asian American Federation) who agrees to help NPCC recruit new members. By the end of the Fiscal Year, 19 Board members had recruited such ambassadors, and they contributed measurably to renewed membership growth. As noted, membership growth rebounded as the economy appeared to improve and

Expanding Cost-Saving Member Benefits

· SkillsBuilders low-cost training and support program: We continued to develop and deliver this program of deeplydiscounted training and support, for smaller nonprofits, while tracking the results: The second of our SkillsBuilders series, Basic Finances for Smaller Nonprofits, offered its third and fourth cycles of hands-on skills training combined with individual coaching that enable nonprofit managers and board leaders: (1) to develop their financial records sufficiently to get a clean management letter from their auditors; (2) to present a financial report to their board and answer all ques8

tions about the financial statement; or (3) to conclude an annual audit with fewer than 15 adjusting journal entries. The third Basic Finances cycle began in July, 2008, and the fourth cycle began in April, 2009. A total of 38 individuals representing 21 organizations completed the two cycles, which each involved 4 workshops, 3 support clinics, and group and individual coaching. Of these, 12 were on track to reach performance targets by December 31, 2009, and the remaining organizations will report results at the close of their fiscal years. These cycles were supported by the Frances L. and Edwin L. Cummings Memorial Fund and The New York Community Trust. As results for all organizations are evaluated at the end of their fiscal years, a complete progress report will be available in 2010. A typical participant stated, For the first time, I'll begin producing and providing my board members with regular budget-toactual reports, multi-year profit and loss statements, and quarterly balance sheet reports. We launched a new, third SkillsBuilders series, Basic Fundraising for Smaller Nonprofits, in January, 2009, in partnership with Cause Effective, with 27 participating organizations. The series, supported by Bank of New York Mellon, aims to help organizations achieve measurably improved: (1) fundraising results; and, (2) organizational capacity to raise money. This series involved 4 hands-on skills workshops and 3 support clinics, with a total of 22 organizations remaining actively engaged throughout the program. Ongoing tracking of results and follow-up continued into the fall of 2009. A total of 19 organizations (86%) demonstrated measurably improved fundraising results and/or measurably improved organizational capacity as of December, 2009. One small-nonprofit Executive Director reported, We went from 0% Board giving to 100% Board giving, and another said, We've gotten back quadruple the fee we paid! · Nonprofit Insurance Company: Re-energized efforts to establish New York's first tax-exempt nonprofit insurance company, GoodCauses, continued in Fiscal Year 2009. There had been tentative commitments by key funders as late as August, 2008, for major contributions to a capital campaign to raise the funds needed to launch this long-planned enterprise. However, the near-collapse of the economy soon resulted in these key prospective funders putting their commitments on hold. Meanwhile, incorporation papers were filed and accepted by the NYS Secretary of State's office for GoodCauses Support, an interim nonprofit entity jointly formed and controlled by NPCC and the New York Council of Nonprofits to facilitate future development of GoodCauses Insurance. GoodCauses Support is currently seeking federal tax exemption as a

Supporting Organization within the meaning of section 509(a)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. · Continuing Group Purchasing Services: NPCC offers several group-buying and discount programs that help member nonprofits spend their hard-earned money on missionrelated programs rather than back-office expenses. We added two new such programs in FY 2009: As of April 1, 2009, NPCC offers a deep discount on the services of EasyOffice, a firm that provides outsourced bookkeeping services to nonprofits. We also began discussions with other providers of outsourced bookkeeping services to offer similar services to member organizations. Through our membership in the National Council of Nonprofits, NPCC now offers a 13% discount on background checks for volunteers and employees through A total of 21 NPCC members have used this new program, which offers a comprehensive and cost effective volunteer and employee tracking system that exceeds typical background screening programs, providing volunteer and community protection and valuable risk management features. We also continued these popular group-buying and discount programs: Staples Business Advantage: 344 member organizations purchased their office supplies through this program in FY 2009. The program generated over $1.7 million in sales, and NPCC members saved approximately 44% off retail prices. Directors' and Officers' Liability Insurance: NPCC provides, at a discounted rate, this insurance policy administered by Frank Crystal & Co., Inc. A total of 699 member organizations obtained coverage through the program in FY 2009. TransitChek: NPCC members receive a 15% discount on the administration costs of their TransitChek benefit program. In FY 2009, 166 NPCC members saved over $18,000 through the program. Payroll Services: 636 member organizations took advantage of cost-saving discounts on payroll services offered to NPCC members by Paychex. In FY 2009, NPCC members realized over $222,600 in savings through the program. ReadyTalk telephone and web conferencing: In FY2009, 216 organizations signed up for this new discount on telephone ($.04 per minute) and web ($.08 per minute) conferencing, offered through our membership in the National Council of Nonprofits. Legal Assistance on Employment & Labor Relations Issues: This service, offered by Allen Breslow, Esq., is


a direct outgrowth of NPCC personnel workshops offered for years. Last fiscal year, 129 member organizations sought advice or utilized these services. Retirement Benefits Program: NPCC sponsors a retirement plan for member organizations' employees through MetLife. As of September 30, 2009, 374 organizations representing 9,811 employees were enrolled, with total assets exceeding $164 million.

Maintaining Strong Government Relations & Promoting Effectiveness, Accountability & Transparency by Nonprofit Organizations

Our Government Relations Committee, chaired by New York Public Library General Counsel and NPCC board member Robert Vanni, and staffed by Senior Consultant Jon Small, works to benefit the entire nonprofit sector in New York ­ work that few individual organizations, or even sub-sector coalitions of nonprofits, have the resources or influence to accomplish. The overall goal is to promote effectiveness, accountability and transparency in nonprofit management and governance, without unduly increasing costs and other burdens that detract from nonprofits' ability to pursue their missions. The Committee ordinarily meets monthly, reporting regularly to NPCC's Board and membership on important developments via our newsletter, website, emails and special presentations by Jon Small at nonprofit meetings throughout the New York area. The Committee includes most of the City's leading lawyers whose practices focus on tax exempt organizations, whether as general counsel to a nonprofit or in private practice. Five former heads of the New York State Attorney General's Charities Bureau serve on the Committee. Three members of the Committee have served on the IRS' national Advisory Committee on Tax-Exempt Charities.

At the state level, the most recent legislative session has been a challenging one for nonprofits and almost everyone else. In general, NPCC comments on bills affecting nonprofits and those they serve, and sometimes writes letters of support or opposition, often in conjunction with other nonprofits, and discusses issues with staff members of the legislators. We enjoy excellent relations with the Attorney General's Charities Bureau. We regularly present to Bureau staff our views on legislation affecting nonprofits.

New York State

· Work regarding UPMIFA: The Uniform Prudent Management of Institutional Funds Act (UPMIFA) has now been adopted by more than 43 states in one form or another and is now pending in the New York State Assembly and Senate (A7907/S4778). Its key provision would permit boards of nonprofits to make expenditures they deemed prudent from endowment (permanent) funds whose value has sunk below the value that was contributed (so-called underwater funds). The Government Relations Committee has been working for some time to educate nonprofits about this legislation. It has formally endorsed the legislation and NPCC's board gave its own endorsement at its February, 2009, meeting. Now that the legislation is (finally) pending, NPCC also has written letters of support to New York State legislators. We are keeping in touch with those involved to follow its progress. Passage of this legislation should free up substantial assets for use for the purposes for which they were donated. The Committee will continue to support passage of this legislation in 2010. · Prompt Contracting: We worked closely with Susan Hager, CEO of the United Way of New York State, to support new legislation (A8327/S5659) to achieve prompt contracting payments on State contracts. Our letters to legislators pointed out the need to eliminate chronic problems with the contract process -- principally late payments. Happily, this legislation was recently enacted. We hope that it will be honored in practice and will have a significant impact in alleviating problems with State contracts that nonprofits have been experiencing. · Retired Accountants Serving on Finance-Related Committees of Nonprofit Boards: We recently learned that the New York State Regents and the Office of the Professions of the NYS Department of Education were contemplating interpreting the recent law concerning registration and continuing education rules for CPAs as prohib12

iting retired CPAs (those no longer registered as CPAs and no longer taking continuing education classes) from serving nonprofit boards as members of finance-related committees or as Treasurer. Our concern was that this would bar from such service a large group of highly qualified people at a time when there was an acute need for such people to serve in those capacities. We made a number of submissions to the Department of Education pointing out this need and noting that, while registered CPAs currently taking continuing education courses might be a bit more desirable people to serve in those capacities than retired CPAs, the real world choice was often likely to be between a retired CPA and someone with much less financial savvy. We also noted that such an interpretation would effect a back-door amendment of New York's Not-for-Profit Corporation law, which imposes only an age-18-or-over requirement for nonprofit board service. To our delight, the Education Department's Office of the Professions has now released an interpretation of the new law permitting retired CPAs to serve in such roles, subject only to disclosing fully their retired status when undertaking service in such roles. · Real Property Tax Exemptions and Imposition of Fees: Jon Small attended a Roundtable discussion in Albany convened by Senator Krueger, the Chair of the NY State Senate Committee on Budget and Tax Reform, to consider the real property tax exemption for nonprofit organizations. Among the questions considered were: (1) In what ways does the exemption achieve its purposes? (2) Should local governments have a role in determining what is exempt? (3) How does the exemption impact revenue streams in urban vs. non-urban areas? (4) Can New York learn from other states' approaches? (5) Should state lawmakers reconsider what qualifies as exempt? Many overlook the fact that, to be exempt, land must be both owned by a nonprofit and used for nonprofit purposes. Whether use may be too broadly defined/interpreted under current law is a topic that may receive special scrutiny. We will be following developments regarding real property tax exemption in 2010. In difficult economic times the exemption often comes under attacks of one form or another. NPCC has been a long-time defender of real property tax exemptions for nonprofits. · Commission on Public Integrity--Staff Proposals to Change the Lobbying Law: Commission staff has made a number of proposals for change to the Lobbying Law. NPCC, Lawyers Alliance for New York and the Human Services Council submitted joint comments on the proposals. A key proposal from our perspective would raise the threshold above which lobbying registration and reporting

is required to $10,000. Our joint comments suggested that the threshold be raised to $25,000. Another proposal would change the definition of lobbying by removing eight specific activities currently included in the definition and simply referring to the general language now in the statute. Our joint comments opposed this proposal on the ground that it would overly broaden the definition of lobbying. Third, the staff proposed removing all exceptions from the definition of gifts; our joint response opposed this as creating a trap for the unwary. · Museums: Assemblyman Brodsky has introduced legislation that we are following (A6959/S4584) to prohibit museums form de-accessioning items from their collections to pay for operating expenses. While this legislation is of a sub-sector specific nature that is not usually the focus of the Committee's work, it does appear to raise questions of excessive reach. Our concern for the nonprofit sector is that the bill may treat thousands of nonprofits as collecting institutions subject to various requirements that would make no sense for non-museum -type institutions, causing costs, confusion and noncompliance. We have commented several times to Mr. Brodsky's office regarding our concerns and are seeking continuing dialogue to clarify the bill. · Tax on Payrolls: The new MTA rescue tax on payrolls (.34% of payroll for all employers, including nonprofits) represents a violation of our guiding principle that nonprofits should not be taxed. We expect to be working with others, such as the Human Services Council, to seek to have the tax eliminated as it applies to nonprofits. We did not actively oppose the tax as the chaotic legislative process for rescuing the MTA unfolded because it seemed that the cost to employees of nonprofits of not having a rescue could well have exceeded the tax being proposed and because, in the political situation surrounding the rescue, it seems unwise for nonprofits to risk defeating the bailout to everyone's detriment. · Madoff: The Committee has been following developments and hearing reports as to the issues for nonprofits relating to the Madoff situation. Those issues involve possible action by New York State and the IRS relating to possible allegations of imprudence and breach of fiduciary duty by nonprofit boards that invested with Madoff directly or through so-called feeder funds. It is also possible that investors that received distributions from Madoff may be called upon to return a portion of those distributions to provide funds to return to those investors that got no distributions at all.


New York City

· Mayor's Initiatives to Help Nonprofits: Mayor Bloomberg has created a set of initiatives to help New York City nonprofits cope with the cash crunch as a result of the economic downturn. Michael Clark was asked to join a small group of leading nonprofit E.D.s and others to work with Deputy Mayor Linda Gibbs on these initiatives. We expect to be commenting on and perhaps working on the initiatives to influence their focus and implementation and to shape them so that the benefits to be gained exceed the costs to be imposed. · Mayor's Initiatives to Promote Volunteering: We are also following the Mayor's initiative to promote volunteering and will be reviewing developments to see if they call for commenting and suggestions by our Committee. · Imposition of Fire Inspection Fees: In a development related to the scrutiny being given by New York State to real property tax exemptions, New York City has imposed fire inspection fees on certain nonprofits (hospitals and educational institutions other than K-12 schools) that were previously exempt and that own the property they use. At a meeting attended by Jon Small, the FDNY expressed regret that budget constraints made this new system necessary. (The exemption has only applied to property owned by nonprofits and so property rented by a for-profit landlord to a nonprofit has been, and remains, subject to the fees.) The imposition of fees is sometimes used by governments to avoid having a legislative battle over limiting real property tax exemptions.

· Health Care Reform: The Government Relations Committee has been very involved in some aspects of the proposed federal health care reform efforts. Most current legislative proposals for reform provide mandates for employer health care coverage, with tax credits for small employers. There appears to have been little or no previous thought given to how the mandates would affect nonprofit organizations, as they do not pay taxes. Nonprofit advocates have been lobbying in Washington, DC, to persuade federal lawmakers to provide relief for smaller nonprofit employers. Messrs. Clark and Small met over the summer with Karina Cabrera from Senator Gillibrand's office, Mr. Clark met with staff from Congressman Rangel's office, and they have spoken with several others. Mr. Small also discussed the problem with Stephanie Strom from The New York Times, resulting in a story about the issue and a leading quote by him. There has emerged a complicated possible resolution,

whereby nonprofits would get a tax credit towards their payroll withholding taxes. · Serve America Act: We have been supporting and following various efforts by the Obama administration to support nonprofits and those they serve. In particular, we have supported the portion of the just-enacted Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act that calls for federal funds (to be matched by private funds) to support capacity building by nonprofits. NPCC might become a capacity builder as a recipient of funds appropriated pursuant to this legislation. This Act also provides for a major increase in federal funding to support volunteering. · IRA Charitable Rollover: We have been supporting making this provision permanent to promote tax advantaged giving from IRAs. · Other: We are also following developments on other issues, including: Applying Private Foundation Rules to Public Charities; Estate Tax Legislation that Could Affect Charitable Giving; and simplification of the private foundation excise tax provisions.

Strengthening NPCC Board & Management Capacity

The Strategic Planning process targeted the need to enhance NPCC's organizational capacity. While membership and benefits have greatly expanded, more than doubling in 10 years, NPCC's Board had been comprised almost entirely of nonprofit executives and has not been historically focused on leveraging resources for the organization. In the past, our small staff and limited infrastructure have not grown in proportion to membership growth. Enhanced capacity is critical, and some progress was made in 2008-2009: · Strengthening Board Capacity: We continued to pursue our goal of building a board that is more representative of the New York City nonprofit sector and better able to leverage resources. A number of potential new Board members have been identified for nomination in FY 2010. · Organizational Capacity and Performance: We reached a milestone in our efforts to identify and track key organizational outcomes on an annual basis in the form of an NPCC Scorecard. NPCC's second Scorecard, for Fiscal Year 2009, is found on the inside back cover. This allows NPCC to set annual performance targets and milestones, and visually demonstrates the impact of our work for our members and other nonprofits. It also has facilitated funding and helps clarify our value to supporters and stakeholders. · Strengthening Staff Capacity: Current staff and management are summarized below.

All projects and services are supervised and reviewed regularly by NPCC staff for effectiveness and cost management. Reports are given to the NPCC Board of Directors for further input and review at least four times a year. This Annual Report is prepared for NPCC's Annual Meeting of members. Michael Clark, NPCC's President, oversees all program and administrative functions and serves as principal liaison with the Board of Directors. Jon Small, former Executive Director (2000-2005) serves as Senior Consultant for Government Relations and provides leadership and staff support to this committee. Peter Swords, former Associate Dean at Columbia University School of Law, a founding director of NPCC and its Executive Director for 15 years, continues to be an active volunteer on many projects, including workshops and service on the Government Relations Committee, as well as beginning revisions this year on the NPCC publication, How to Read the IRS Form 990 & Find Out What it Means, to be made available on our website. Marcia Brown has been Director of Programs since 1995. She draws from extensive nonprofit experience with the Manhattan Theatre Club, the St. Ann Center for the Arts and Restoration, New York Theatre Workshop, A.R.T./New York, and Chamber Music America. Craig Weinrich has served as NPCC's Membership, Outreach & IT Director. Barbara Earnest left as part-time Program Associate in the fall of 2008; many of her duties, as well as new ones, were assumed by Alison Kincaid, new full-time Program Associate. Consultant Dan Myers produces NPCC's newsletter, manages the Government Grants Information Service, and carries out special projects and surveys. Kristina Grammer, Associate Director for Special Programs, left in early September, 2009, and was succeeded in that position by Aditi Davray, who directs a variety of administrative, program and program development activities, including the New York Times Company Nonprofit Excellence Awards. In June, we recruited Molly Knol as NPCC's new Executive Assistant, succeeding Elizabeth Stoneburg in providing administrative support for all staff.

Our Mission

The Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York serves as the voice of and information source for the New York City area nonprofit community, so that nonprofits are better informed, managed, governed and represented at all levels of government, and better equipped to achieve their missions.

Our Vision

The quality of life for all New Yorkers depends on a strong, vibrant and diverse nonprofit sector. Nonprofits must manage and govern themselves well, be accountable and transparent to donors, constituents and the public, and pursue their missions effectively. As NPCC's influence and membership grow, so does our ability to help member nonprofits achieve these objectives. NPCC's goal is to be New York nonprofits' most reliable source for information, advice, quality programs and services, their most effective advocate on sector-wide issues, and widely recognized as such.

*Based on member reporting on impact of NPCC's workshops and trainings, newsletter, web content, telephone and email guidance, and other programs and services.
