H/t the indispensable Nonprofit Quarterly‘s Nonprofit Newswire: a congregation in Anchorage is running a “Mitzvah Mall,” at which what’s for sale is donations to nonprofits. A Festival of Light indeed!
And h/t the equally indispensable You’ve Cott Mail, a clipping service about arts and arts management: United States Artists has created a Website to allow patronage of individual artists by individual donors, without the embarrassment of face-to-face requests or the notion that you have to be a Medici to support artists.
What an elegant and lovely idea for the season—individual philanthropy, organized collectively.
