Coalition Publications

The following documents were created to highlight the unique services offered by members of the Coalition, and special issues facing the Napa County nonprofit community, as presented at recent Coalition meetings.

We recently started a quarterly series at our monthly meetings focusing on the collaboration of many agencies on one particular issue. The kick-off  was a panel on Cancer and other critical illnesses. 

CalNonprofits Overhead Project

We all struggle with the overhead elephant in the room: What exactly is overhead? How much is too much? How can I get my donors to understand overhead? How will we keep the lights on if we can’t fund overhead?

On January 20, 2016, Jan Masaoka, CEO of CalNonprofits, presented a PowerPoint to the Coalition that helps answer those questions and more.

Relevant topics include:
* What is overhead in nonprofits?
* How do I calculate the overhead rate in my organization?
* What options do I have to maximize overhead recovery?
* How do these options influence our decision-making?
* How do overhead rates affect nonprofits?
* What are the new federal regulations about overhead in government-nonprofit contracts and can my organization take advantage of them?
* How is philanthropy taking on the overhead issue in grantmaking?

Napa Coalition Budget Cuts Report

The Napa Valley Coalition of Nonprofit Agencies conducted a budget exercise during the scheduled May 2011 membership meeting. Coalition members and Napa County Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) worked collaboratively to identify potential fiscal challenges for the upcoming fiscal year. This report captures the information that was shared at that meeting. It is not exhaustive, and does not cover all potential fiscal threats to the non-profit community for FY 2011-2012.

Succession Planning

As presented at the Coalition's October 2011 meeting:

"Succession planning is a process that engages all aspects and people
associated with the organization. From the board and staff to key stakeholders
and audiences, change is unsettling. Preparations for successful change
minimize any negative or disruptive effects."
