Writing an annual report for your nonprofit is a great idea. Annual reports can help in many ways. They can communicate not just your activities, but your accomplishments; reinforce your value to existing supporters while attracting new donors; educate influential decisionmakers about your work; recognize special people; and serve as a historical record of your progress.
Nonprofit Times publishes an annual "2011 Power and Influence Top 50" -- the nonprofit executives it says are the sector's top thinkers, innovators, and leaders. We were curious how the organizations these people work for market themselves, so we compiled some links for you. You'll find links to the organization's main web site, annual reports, newsletters, press rooms, and donate pages, when we could find them. The list is now in alphabetical order by organization, instead of in the order Nonprofit Times used.
