    Cybersecurity is mission-critical for nonprofits as cyber incidents can lead to exposure of sensitive information about a nonprofit’s employees and the people the nonprofit serves. They can also cripple an organization’s ability to carry out its core mission. With limited resources, many nonprofits are unable to hire information security professionals or implement costly enterprise-level cybersecurity solutions. To aid with those issues, the federal Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, through the Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative (JCDC), just released a series of materials that can help nonprofits with limited resources bolster their cybersecurity. These resources include:

    • Project Upskill: A series of guides designed to empower non-technical staff with the knowledge and ability to protect themselves – and by extension, their organization – from cyber threats.

    The Kevin Love Fund offers a free arts-based mental health program that is designed for middle, high school and college students. Kevin Love is an NBA basketball player who has been vocal about his own mental health challenges, and he brought together mental health and education experts to help young people learn skills to share stories from their lives through creative activities.

    You can hear more about Kevin’s story and what inspired him to create this program  here. 

     Activities are designed to be flexible and additive if nonprofits are  already using a mental health program with their students, or if you have very little time.

    The Kevin Love Fun activities are already being delivered to  more than 55,000 students, and have seen very positive results from initial research; for example, 85% of students participating in the pilot said they felt an increased feeling of belonging in the classroom after completing the curriculum. 83% of students felt they are more likely to reach out to their teacher if they are struggling. 

    With the help of Dak Prescott who is from Louisiana, the Kevin Love Fund is launching a focused expansion and is working with other Louisana nonprofits including AmeriCorps. To access the free program, educators attend a one-hour virtual training (also free) that is scheduled around the educator’s availability.
