How can I solicit electronic equipment for short term loan for an NYC art exhibition? It is affiliated with a non-profit and reasonably high profile, I have a PR kit ready but am having trouble finding the right contacts (at Samsung, Sony, or Panasonic for example). I need a monthlong loan of a flatscreen LED display and in exchange can offer PR opportunities, exposure to a sophisticated arts audience, and VIP performance tickets - a lot to offer!

A canvasser signed our family up to make regular contributions to Planned Parenthood. How can I tell how much of our donation is actually being received by PP? [more inside]

Our environmental non-profit in Portland, Oregon receives a small portion of its revenue from recurring (monthly) contributions drawn via direct deposit. Recently, the bank we used to administer this account was acquired by another institution and started charging over a hundred bucks per month just to keep the account open
. We shut the account down but are still looking for a reasonable alternative. If at all possible we'd like to avoid paying high administrative costs for the service and processing payments manually (since we'd most likely have to keep donors' account numbers in the office).
I'm open to new ideas, and thanks in advance!

I've been tasked with securing in-kind beverage donations / beverage sponsorship for an event at a music & dance education non-profit, and I'm failing pretty badly. I lack useful contacts in the beer/wine/liquor industry, and I lack knowledge of what companies generally support small arts nonprofits in this fashion. As an added bonus, our organization is fairly new. Please give me advice on how to not suck at this... [more inside]

After 28 years of existance and 5 years of working toward this goal, my community band became a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization six months ago. Yay! Now... How can we start getting donations? [more inside]

I'm developing a site for a new nonprofit that would like to accept online donations. I'd love advice on which sites I can sign them up with to accept donations with the least amount of fees. Is there anything better than PayPal - perhaps a site specifically dedicated to nonprofits? Thanks!

Perth (Australia) Filter: Anyone know where I can purchase a perspex/lucite/acrylic, clear, lockable donation box in the Perth metro area? Size would be suitable for putting on a small table. Would need to accept notes as well as coins. I only want one.
