Invisible Children, Nonprofit Behind Kony 2012 Video, to Wind Down Operations
December 15, 2014

On Monday morning, Invisible Children, the organization behind the hugely popular "Kony 2012" viral video, announced major changes to its operations. The company will close its San Diego-based headquarters, it announced, and transfer its African-based operations to local partners over the next year.

It's a significant change for the company — and it may well spell its end. The staff in the U.S. office will be cut from 21 to four before the end of the year, while the number of staff working in Africa will be scaled down from 20 to 10 in March.

Donors Weigh the Ideals of Meaningful Giving
November 2, 2011

While many Americans give generously to help people, many others make donations of a different sort: building museums to house their art collections; underwriting new wings in hospitals or halls named for them at their alma maters; using their money and influence to sway public policy and influence political campaigns; or seeking to solve problems in distant lands rather than in their own backyards.

While charitable giving rose slightly over all in 2010, gifts to organizations that address basic human needs fell 6.6 percent, according to Giving USA.

According to a recent survey by the Nonprofit Research Collaborative, 78 percent of human service nonprofits and 68 percent of charities overall saw demand for assistance rise in 2010. The agency predicts that charities will be hard-pressed in 2011 to secure funding for growing needs.
