Launch of the New NonProfit National Resource Directory
Greenfield, MA, Feb. 21, 2009 — Marcia Bloomberg, CEO of The Bloomberg Group, announces the launch of the internet-based NonProfit National Resource Directory, connecting nonprofits to the resources they need to succeed. The directory provides a one-stop-shop for nonprofit leadership to research consultants, coaches, specialists and vendors who will assist them to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of their organization or institution.
The work of the nonprofit sector is essential to the well-being of our society. Millions of Americans rely on nonprofit organizations to provide services that support their physical and mental health, their educational aspirations, their religious and spiritual needs, their quest for happiness and fulfillment, their hopes and dreams for themselves and their families.
The new on-line NonProfit National Resource Directory is a growing list of consultants, executive coaches and specialists who partner with nonprofit leaders as they guide their organizations into the future.
As the nonprofit field becomes more sophisticated, as there is more competition for philanthropic dollars and as new government regulations on nonprofits continue to mount, outside expertise is in greater and greater demand. Coaches and consultants can ease the burden on nonprofit professionals. Attorneys and accountants with expertise in nonprofit operations can help organizations avoid expensive, even fatal, mistakes.
Communications experts assist nonprofits to get their message out to those who help sustain them and provide invaluable advice in a crisis. IT specialists help nonprofits keep up with the demands of new technology and provide innovation and support. Trainers, speakers and leadership development consultants help to keep nonprofit professionals motivated, focused, and educated about how to address new needs and develop new skills.
The founder and CEO of the NonProfit National Resource Directory, Marcia Bloomberg of The Bloomberg Group explains, "In my work in the nonprofit sector in Cleveland, Ohio and as an independent consultant in Massachusetts, I have been frustrated by the lack of a one-stop-shop that features a listing of the consultants, coaches, grant-writers, web designers, executive recruiters, trainers, attorneys, accountants, specialists in board governance and others who serve nonprofit organizations.
