NPC is restructuring to focus exclusively on progressive donors who want to be effective political investors in social change. Emailed press release below.
NPC is restructuring and entering a new phase. We have listened closely to the needs of both our individual and organization members. Individuals told us that they are still overwhelmed with information and donation requests and want to better understand the impact of their giving. Organizations told us that their biggest obstacle is still fundraising. After considering these challenges, we’ve decided that NPC can be most valuable to the progressive movement by focusing solely on cultivating a new generation of political investors.
Going forward we will be providing products and services exclusively to individuals wanting to target their political and charitable money and time more effectively. NPC’s focus will be on transforming donors into political investors by helping them make smarter decisions about how to invest in political change.
We will be opening up the NPC marketplace to any and all progressive organizations, free of charge. Our hope is that many more organizations will be able to benefit from NPC's resources and visibility and individual members will have more choices for investment opportunities.
As a result, NPC will cease, as of May 10, 2007, to provide direct services to organizations. NPC's team that serviced organization members, Ludovic Blain, Deborah Schneider, and Tom Taylor, will be moving on to other opportunities. I want to personally thank them for helping so many organizations, aggregating hundreds of resources that will benefit the progressive movement for years to come, and for making NPC what it is today. If you would like to reach out to them directly, their contact information is listed below.
We encourage organizations to keep their profiles updated as we continue to build our online presence. We will be announcing a plan shortly that will provide the capability for any organization to post their profiles in the NPC marketplace and access resources formerly only open to members. For current organization members, we will be issuing pro-rated refunds.
Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to entering this new phase with your help. Please let us know if you have any other questions or feedback.
