As we begin a new year, we’d like to take a moment to reflect upon a year that is one for the memory books. When the pandemic first hit and schools closed, parents and parent groups figured out ways to keep kids engaged at home. Those who run nonprofits used innovative new tools to maintain mission-critical business. Then, as we got into summer, we started to realize this thing wasn’t going away any time soon.
Yet, despite everything that was thrown at us this year, we have seen incredible resilience from the nonprofit community.
All of this is reflected in our most popular blogs of the year. Some of them are business as usual: topics focused on the nonprofit community that uses MoneyMinder to maintain their books. Others were about “business-as-NOT-usual”: ways to adapt to the circumstances. In both cases, we are in awe of our nonprofit community, and all you do to continue your mission. We salute you!
