Media Roundup

The Minnesota Council on Foundations featured the following roundup of how the media is covering nonprofits and philanthropy.



  • Dramatic IRS Shift for Nonprofits Philadelphia Inquirer: Nonprofits, which don’t pay federal taxes, but still must report their income, are confronted with a new, more complicated public-reporting form, called form 990, that demands a deeper look at how organizations operate. It now delves into questions such as how top officers are compensated and what potential safeguards exist to prevent corruption.
  • Twitter Followers Raise Thousands of Dollars for Charity Chronicle of Philanthropy: Twestival, which took place in more than 175 cities around the world from Banaglore to Baton Rouge, brought together people who use the social networking site, Twitter, to meet in person and raise money for charity.
