An eventful close to the week: Emily is receiving her award and speaking on a panel at the American Bar Association Annual Meeting in Chicago, and CompassPoint and YNPN are hosting the 25th Anniversary of Nonprofit Day – Generations of Change.

Here are some of my favorite posts of the week in the areas of nonprofit organizations, corporate governance, philanthropy, and social enterprises:

  • Ellen Miller: The I.R.S. Finally Takes On Secret Campaign Donations
  • Chronicle of Philanthropy: Opinion: The Broken Nonprofit Board System Needs a Fix
  • Law For Change: Antidote to Nonprofit Scandals: the Sarbanes-Oxley Act
  • Alice Korngold: Nonprofit Board Self-Assessment: Creating the Path Forward  via Huffington Post
  • Andy Ho: NYTimes: Taxes Needn’t Discourage Philanthropy
  • Foundation Center: FC Launches "Eye on the Giving Pledge", Century's Biggest Development in Philanthropy [Ed. I might throw the donor-advised fund into that argument but that's not to diminish the impact of the Giving Pledge.]
  • Foundation Center DC: Insights into Private Foundations: Interview with Martin Teitel: Great advice:
  • Independent Sector: Philanthropy 2012: Report Reveals Where Charities are Thriving Best via The Atlantic
