NYCharities.org Updates

You may have heard by now some news about a popular online donation platform called NYCharities.org. It appears that the organization lost its charitable status  in August of 2018, and it had taken down its website in late June or July. Our members have reported that they have not been able to get in touch with NYCharities.

What you need to know about your Directors and Officers (D&O) Liability Insurance coverage

It’s me again, your Membership Manager at Nonprofit New York (formerly NPCC). Back in April 2019 we sent a message to our members about changes to our D&O insurance offerings. This is to remind you, our members, of a couple things we need you to know and do next:

Your policy with Hiscox will be canceled this year!

Hiscox is no longer renewing the policies they hold for our members. You did nothing wrong! All that means is we are moving your policy from Hiscox to Philadelphia Indemnity Company. Next steps are outlined below.

NPCC’s Declaration of Nonprofit Rights

We are thrilled to launch NPCC’s Declaration of Nonprofit Rights. The Declaration of Nonprofit Rights is NPCC’s bold vision for a powerful nonprofit sector. It is NPCC’s North Star, the guiding principles that form the basis of our worldview of the sector’s needs and potentials, and in turn, guide our day-to-day public policy work to meet those needs and potential.

The Declaration articulates NPCC’s understanding, through the four principles, of what nonprofits must have in order to be engaged and effective.

The rights-based language is intentional, and provides an aspirational vision that we will work to achieve.

The Declaration is not a call to action; it is action.

A Year of Challenges for Charitable Nonprofits

Businesses and governments in New York and across the country rely on charitable nonprofits to help build the communities we want and address critical needs of all New Yorkers. These charitable organizations rely on steady funding and stable laws and policies to advance their missions and be the reliable partner that businesses and governments expect. This January, as nonprofits evaluate the past year while looking ahead to 2019, uncertainty and change are the only constants; the outcomes of public policy challenges in the coming months will tip the difference in whether nonprofits will have secure resources and sound policies that allow us to partner with the government and business sectors to create a healthy society in New York.
