As with most nonprofit ventures, Blue Avocado has taken some interesting twists and turns in its first ten years. As the major funder of Blue Avocado throughout its history, the Nonprofits Insurance Alliance Group has always been cheering for the success of Blue Avocado from the sidelines, with no intention of taking it on as a project. However, when American Nonprofits recently launched its Bridge to Bridge Loan Fund for nonprofits and decided it needed to focus on that initiative, our boards of directors at the Nonprofits Insurance Alliance Group gladly welcomed Blue Avocado into the fold. We are determined to help Blue Avocado remain the best free source of practical information for small- and mid-sized community nonprofits everywhere.
And, we think you will agree that we hit it out of the park with our decision to select Darian Rodriguez Heyman as Editor-In-Chief. You can be sure we will do everything we can to continue to grow Blue Avocado into a powerhouse of fun-filled, jam-packed, practical information tailor-made for volunteers, executives, board members, and employees of community-based nonprofits across the country. We know how hard you work to make our communities a better place. What better excuse than your most recent edition of Blue Avocado to grab a cup of coffee or tea and take a load off those tired feet!
