Chesapeake Layoffs Could Affect Metro Nonprofits In Future

Printer-friendly version

Nonprofits are now having to be more creative on where they ask for donations and they are having to look at other industries besides energy.

“This doesn't take them by surprise, this is what they do every day and they are ready for it,” said Jennifer Meckling with the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits.

Meckling said Chesapeake will honor its current commitments to charities, but future years are in jeopardy.

Meckling said that is why her organization trains charities to not depend on only one donor.

“Much like you would have your own investments diversified, we'd like you to have your funding diversified so that when something like does happen that you don't feel a huge shortfall,” Meckling told News 9.
