ConceptLink is developing an in-depth study aimed at gaining a deeper understanding of the unique challenges of nonprofit organizations working in Africa, specifically with regard to fundraising, communications, and international program management. The study, curated from interviews with nonprofit leaders, will be released to the public later in 2013. The goal of the study is to fill an information void by offering valuable insights on Africa-interest groups located in the US.
ConceptLink is a social impact strategy firm that helps Africa-interest organizations effect change in their communities. The study began late in 2012, and ConceptLink is currently interviewing Executive, Development, or Communications Directors at eligible organizations. The study will remain open for additional participants until mid-2013. 501c3-registered nonprofits throughout the US are invited to contribute, provided they have programs or services in at least one African country.
Organizations who participate will be entered into a drawing for $1,000 worth of free consulting services from ConceptLink.
