I love this tagline from The Loan Fund , an alternative lender in New Mexico. It's as short as you can get, but informative and memorable. The staff there has done a terrific job in shaping a pithy message that showcases not just what they do, but the impact of the organization's work (which clearly differentiates it from other lenders). But when I jumped to The Fund's Web site, I saw that it's using a different tagline all over the site -- "Building Communities Since 1989."

If it’s a drunk driving law in New Mexico, she probably helped pass it. We’ve discussed the nonprofit tax debate over the past two days; now it’s time to talk implications. There are a few roads that lead from here, all with their pluses and minuses. Ignore the new rules. Do what you’ve been doing. Maybe people will still think their gift helps them on their taxes, even if it doesn’t. It’s an option, but I would argue a suboptimal one. Play by the new rules.
