Non-Profit Earned Income Strategies
The Number of non-profits organizations have increased by 25% in the last decade. However "as non-profits face devastating recession –driven revenue shortages and projected budget shortfalls from many state and local governments, this could reverse the trend as donors cut back, contracts are cancelled, and foundation endowments shrink". In this landscape earned income strategies have increasingly become of interest for the sector as more reliable source of funding. Representatives from Global Exchange, Mindful schools, and Shareable.org along with a non-profit attorney from alder & Colvin will address various do's and don'ts of earned income strategies based on their decades of experience. Topics covered will include sales from programs, goods, classes, and corporate sponsorship as well as tax and legal issues.

Yoni Ki Baat: Tenth Anniversary Edition!
Yoni Ki Baat returns March 22 and 23 to the iconic Women's Building in San Francisco. In 2003, South Asian Sisters, a Bay Area-based collective, created "Yoni ki Baat," inspired by Eve Ensler's "The Vagina Monologues." The poignant, provocative and hilarious performances bring to life original stories written by women from the South Asian diaspora. Our 10th anniversary edition features audience favorites from the last decade.
Whether you are a Yoni Ki Baat veteran or a novice, plunge yourselves into the world of Yoni – the show will not disappoint. We look forward to rejoicing, reconnecting, and reliving epic pieces that span a decade with you all!
Here's a taste of what awaits!
"This is how it feels, when your tongue enters me, scarlet sacred blasphemy..."
"Looking for a bride for our well-established son, residing in the US...only contact IF prospective bride is VERY FAIR..."
"My vagina likes to be hurt. The other night in a San Francisco dungeon, in a blissful haze brought on by too many orgasms, I looked up at the woman with her fist halfway in my cunt and said dreamily, 'Mmm, that feels so nice...!'"
"Hello ladies! I am The Moonch. Many of you take me for a 'mooch.' But I am no mooch ladies! I am The Moonch, with an Nnnn...'"
