A Rosy Forecast
Many nonprofit groups expect strong fund raising in 2006
Chronicle of Philanthropy - Issue dated January 26, 2006
After New Orleans was flooded in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, the Louisiana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals rescued nearly 9,000 animals. But saving the organization's fund raising has been a far greater challenge.
The storm completely destroyed the charity's shelter and caused most of its 40,000 donors to flee the city. "Donors are gone, and we are reliant on the generosity of outsiders," says Laura Maloney, the society's executive director.
Even so, Ms. Maloney is optimistic about this year's finances. With a $3.7-million grant from the Humane Society of the United States, the charity is back in business, operating a shelter in a refurbished coffee warehouse.
Another $2-million from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is covering expenses, including the salary of an assistant director hired by Ms. Maloney.
"We will come out of this stronger than ever," Ms. Maloney says.
