More donors give nonprofits general support to do innovative work

Inside Philanthropy cites Ballmer Group as Exhibit A in the trend for big donors to give long-term general operating support to nonprofit organizations viewed as strong and innovative, and capable of scaling up. It notes as one example our support of Communities In Schools (CIS), the national nonprofit that strives to help at-risk students stay in school. In a recent academic year, CIS worked with 1.5 million students in 2,300 schools.
