NPFX: The Nonprofit Fundraising Exchange

Aug 23, 2022

In the past, researchers have studied much about the people who comprise the LGBTQ community, but little about the nonprofits that serve them. In today's episode, we bring you a discussion of IPM's new report on the current state of LGBTQ nonprofits in the US. We cover how organizations are working on LGBTQ/equality issues nationwide, ways for these organizations to make a greater impact, where to look for opportunities to increase philanthropic giving, and more.
