Resources for Charities and Non-Profits

Posted | 0 comments

There’s a range of great resources that Sleeping Lion regularly uses to assist US and Canadian charities and non-profits.

Some of our favorites include

  • Blue Avocado – a great blog authored by Jan Masaoka concerning all things of interest to non-profits.  US focus, but some relevance to Canadian organizations
  • Free Management Library – an incredible easy-to-use resource of online  management tools, documents, policies, etc.   The Library has thousands of links to resources for both for-profit and non-profit organizations.  Topics run the gamut from personnel to financial management to use of social media.    I’ve had this bookmarked for years!
  • Idealist.org – need we say more?  This is the starting place for anyone wanting to enter the nonprofit field as a volunteer or employee.
  • Charity Village – the Canadian portal for non-profit news, jobs, resources and training.
  • Nonprofit Career Resource Guide – More info for anyone considering a career in the nonprofit field.
  • HR Council – information about Canada’s non-profit labour force.  Their Tool Kit provides guides and samples of everything related to human resources – job descriptions, evaluation processes, legislation, diversity, benefits, compensation, etc.   An essential starting place for everything to do with non-profit employment.

We know there are plenty more – feel free to add suggestions.
