It consistently develops new and effective approaches to some of the nation’s most serious social problems. Since 2001, the Manhattan Institute has sought to identify and recognize some of the most promising social entrepreneurs and the new non-profits they’ve founded, based on their own original ideas. The more than 50 winners of the Richard Cornuelle award, named for the writer who coined the term independent sector, have addressed challenges as diverse as teaching English to new immigrants, building facilities for charter schools, helping older Americans “age in place,” developing science and engineering curricula for high schools, and helping African-American college students continue through to graduation. Most are supported entirely by private philanthropy.Continue Reading

One has to do with unrelated business income, and this is generally resolved between a nonprofit and the IRS (see sidebar on pages 55 through 58 for regulations); the other has to do with allegations of “restraint of trade,” or practices that have an anticompetitive effect on the market.Continue Reading

No. I’m not much of a Civil War buff, so I’m not referring to the “War of Attempted Secession” [As Walt Whitman termed it] here, although there is some revealing dental history tied to the Civil War. In the mid-19 century, the dental health of the general population was poor, most people seeing a dentist only to have a troublesome tooth extracted. Surprisingly, with the outbreak of the war in 1861, some measure of dental health was a requirement for recruits in both sides — for the Union, it was to have six opposing upper and lower front teeth, for the Confederacy it was only four.
