Delaney Calls for Nonprofit Sector Unity in Face of Budget Cuts - NPQ - Nonprofit Quarterly
Delaney Calls for Nonprofit Sector Unity in Face of Budget Cuts - NPQ - Nonprofit Quarterly: In Tulsa, Okla. last week, Tim Delaney, president and CEO of the National Council of Nonprofits, called for nonprofit organizations to come together and speak with a powerful, unified voice. This is what other sectors do when they feel they are under attack, he said. Other speakers echoed his call, including Carol Carter of LIFE Senior Services, who said that one of the biggest threats right now is government budget cutting. Carter is afraid that governments are not making smart cuts and are using an axe instead of a scalpel. By blithely hacking away at budgets, she contends, government officials are not considering the implications of their decisions.
