Nonprofit Roundup August 2015


Did you miss World Elephant Day this month? The Wild Foundation celebrated these remarkable animals with a special e-newsletter about their efforts to protect the Mali elephants from increased international trafficking. As part of these efforts, the Wild Foundation and their partners at the International Conservation Fund of Canada are raising funds to supply the new Mali forester patrols with motorbikes for rural transportation. Find out more and consider donating to this program here.

We interviewed the University Press of Colorado about their organization’s mission to disseminate knowledge globally through scholarly publications. They’re currently in the midst of a campaign to raise $50,000 in celebration of their 50th anniversary. Check out our recent Client Spotlight to learn more about this Boulder-based nonprofit publisher.

This month, Reading Village has been taking a closer look at the impact of education in low-income countries like Guatemala. The Reading Village Facebook page is full of thought-provoking information - for example, did you know that in rural Guatemalan communities, less than 50% of students reach high school, and less than 10% ever graduate? Reading Village’s work in education aims to change these statistics for the better.


Did you know that since 2008, Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley has only performed renovations (rather than building homes from the ground up), which has enabled them to triple their impact on the community? If you live in the Ann Arbor area and are interested in helping Habitat make a difference, visit their website to learn more about volunteer and partner opportunities.

It’s back-to-school time! Ann Arbor Academy, a private, independent day school for students with learning differences is preparing to start their academic year in September. Many of their students have AD/HD, language-based learning disabilities, or high functioning autism spectrum disorder, and require a unique learning environment to help them succeed.
