Layoffs and More Layoffs

The recession continues to cause the charitable sector to constrict. Layoffs have become so pervasive in the sector that the Chronicle of Philanthropy is keeping a running list of charities and their cost cutting measures.

As previously discussed in this blog, arts charities often suffer worse than other types of nonprofits during a recession. As such, it wasn't surprising to see that the most recent listing includes many cultural groups like the Philadelphia Orchestra and Skylight Opera Theater. But it was troubling to see that the list even includes large, well-known funders like the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Ford Foundation.

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>
