The town of Concord, Massachusetts last year sent letters to resident tax exempt organizations asking them to consider donating money to the municipal coffers.

The Boston Globe reports that the nonprofits have not stepped up:

One selectman said he has struck out, while another said he has seen at least a glimmer of hope from some groups…“I haven’t been successful with anybody,’’ said Jeffrey Wieand, the chairman of the Board of Selectmen. “But I’ve talked to people who are at least thinking about it.’’

Next headline in today’s paper: Dog bites man. (Hat tip: The Nonprofit Quarterly.)
