Tell us the Good Stuff!
The Corliss Institute - New nonprofit alliance will have big impact in Florida
After its several years in the making, I was pleased to attend FNA’s first symposium. Florida’s nonprofits are in better hands now that this organization is advocating for us at the state level.
One of the interesting ideas discussed at the FNA meeting was the creation of the Florida Governor’s Office on Philanthropy. This is not a new concept and similar models are working successfully in other major cities and states. The purpose of this office would be to help educate, inform and leverage Florida’s philanthropic assets in partnership with the governor in the area of economic development and to help solve problems impacting our state.
