How will the Senate moratorium on earmarks affect your nonprofit?

Despite the good nonprofits do, they're being hit six ways to Sunday with funding cuts.

The Senate Appropriations Committee recently announced a two-year moratorium on earmarks. Many nonprofits have depended on earmarks, especially for capital projects or start-up funding for new projects.

How will the moratorium affect the people your nonprofit serves?

How many of your employees will be out of work because of the cuts?

How close is your agency to closing your doors?

There is a way for nonprofits to have better grant writing. San Diego State University now offers a grant writing certificate program. It was great to take!

I feel as though my agency (http://parentresourcecentertaylorcountywi.webs.com/) is feeling this big time! We've already lost one of our programs due to budget cuts in 2011. I'm worried about 2012 will bring.

I feel as though my agency (http://parentresourcecentertaylorcountywi.webs.com/) is definitely feeling the stress of budget cuts. We've had to discontinue the service our program was founded on (Home Visitation for ALL families) because the cost is too great. We continue to try to get this program refunded, but it is not looking good!
