We were joking in the office today that there’s something called “Baltimore Corps years” (like dog years), where each month you spend with the organization…

2018 Week 5: Nonprofit Management

2017 Week Two: Nonprofit Management

NINA KRAUSS | FUSION PARTNERSHIPS, INC. This is a completely genuine offer: if you (or someone you know) are (is) interested in interning this summer for an international throat singing project, I can put you in contact with someone who could use your help. I am tempted to throw this…

2017 Week One: Nonprofit Management

NINA KRAUSS | FUSION PARTNERSHIPS, INC. “It’ll be perfect, we just have to figure it out as we go” is a statement I heard during my first staff meeting at Fusion Partnerships. This phrase arose out of a discussion surrounding office renovations, but I feel it may end up being…
