Although we were all hoping that the pandemic would be behind us now, the Delta variant is spreading throughout Idaho. Because of this, nonprofits and other businesses are having to make additional decisions about workplace requirements.
We have seen private businesses, healthcare facilities, and schools issue vaccine mandates. Some even have employment termination as a consequence. Below you will find resources to help you navigate these difficult choices.
The nonprofit sector is a wonderful community that puts people first. We know that you all will approach these tough decisions with grace and understanding.
As always, thank you so much for all you do for our state! Please reach out if you have any further questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
Dear nonprofit colleagues,
During my five months as interim CEO of the Idaho Nonprofit Center, it was a privilege to represent the many organizations and individuals who work tirelessly to improve the lives of Idahoans.
As I start my tenure as the next CEO of the Idaho Nonprofit Center, I wanted to share a story that I think sums up what nonprofits are all about.
My first nonprofit gig was right after I finished college. In school, I was fortunate enough to come into contact with a small band of passionate rabble rousers who were alumni of my alma mater. They were founding a nonprofit in Gulu, Uganda and it was truly a bare bones operation. All volunteer board members were dedicated to the cause, but had no real funding sources or leads.
I came along a few months later with the desire to gain experience and work overseas. Upon meeting with the founder and finding we had a shared love for the resilient people in Uganda, he said, “You’re hired! But… you’ll need to raise money for your own salary because we don’t have a way to pay you yet.”
Naively, I said, “Count me in!”
