    Read the above report to get up-to-date information on the benefits and impact of nonprofits in Second Life as well as the challenges and opportunities for nonprofits in this new virtual medium. The report was written by Sandra Bettger (Anika Pastorelli), Executive Director of the Giving Circles Network, Member/Resident of Nonprofit Commons. Special thanks go to the twelve (12) NPC nonprofits that participated in the interviews*, which formed the basis of this study, to the reviewers (Susan Tenby, Megan Keane, Dick Dillon of Preferred Family Healthcare and Brad Lewis of Great Strides), and volunteers who provided additional technical insight and feedback (Ronnie Rhode, Skeeboo Tammas, Parhelion Palou, and Mercedes Ochs).

    6/7/07 Rik comments: I agree with Beth/Annie regarding needing the mission to be more up front and compelling. Here's my suggestion:
    We believe that Second Life is a wonderful place not just to entertain, but also to educate, inspire and assist our fellow avatars (and the humans behind them). The Non-profit Commons brings together a community of groups working toward a diverse set of goals, but united in the belief that we can make the world -- both virtual and real -- a better place to live.
    6/5/07 - Glitteractica Cookie says: WOW- I wish I would have been invited to that meeting!
    So, I came up with one of these one-sentence things about what we are doing in SL today, for the TS marketing team (internal, here at TechSOup office).
    It was something along the lines of:
    Through the Nonprofit Commons project, TechSoup is helping lower the barriers of access to Second Life to create a community of nonprofit organizations in this new, exciting virtual world. / comments?

    6/5/07 - Leslie/Bluewave says: Great impromptu meeting last night, guys, thank you. Elevator language (adapted from the BPSL page): "The Non-Profit Commons is a group of nonprofits, official and informal, who see great potential in collaborating in Second Life including new local and global ways of connecting , virtual meetings, outreach, education, fundraising, all in virtual space, on a global level. Join us."

    Hey Guys,

    Chung Studios and Techsoup some props
    05/20/07 Coughran adds: along those lines......I noticed in this weeks issue of Metaverse Messenger that there is a small box at the bottom left on the front page about non-profits - making that space available for announcements and promotion of NFPs I think. Want me to contact them on behalf of this committee?
