The Center on Nonprofits and Philanthropy’s Brice McKeever reported in Oct. 2015, “The number of public charities grew 19.5 percent between 2003 and 2013.”

The pace of growth in new nonprofits has tripled since the 1990s and accelerated since 2013, increasing the competition for resources to sustain services.

On Sept. 19, 11 a.m. - 2 p.m., the Putnam County Community Foundation (PCCF) will host a panel of senior representatives from high-profile funders at the DePauw Prindle Institute for Ethics.

Representatives from Duke Energy, Hendricks Power Cooperative, Parke County REMC, Putnam County Convention and Visitor Bureau, Vectren Energy, Walmart Distribution and PCCF will share information about their interests and guidelines.
