Hello! My name is Dea Jessica, a rising junior from St. Olaf College. I’ve been interning with NEC since last June and I am only here for the summer, so I have a week left to go then a holiday flight back to my home country Indonesia. Over these two months, I’ve been delving deeper into local non-profit organizations in town. I am currently writing a final report about non-profit growth and effectiveness.
Included in the report is the effect of various tax-exempt statuses given to non-profit organizations, a micro-economics model on non-profit opportunities and challenges, and also a brief study on the impact of an active non-profit board on public trust and grant acceptance rate.
Originally I hope to deliver my report to the current and emerging non-profit leaders for their reference on multi-dimensional measurements of growth and effectiveness. Yet, unfortunately I have only two months to gather just enough information. Otherwise, I’ve been having a great time at the office here with Megan, other interns, and also coworkers. Now, I am looking forward to finish my report and also am looking for a way to somehow continue this study in the future.
