Tales from The Nonprofit Galaxy

Art and Humor by Miriam Engleberg

The cartoon Planet501c3 pokes fun at life in the nonprofit sector: 501(c)(3) is the IRS designation for nonprofit corporations. Planet501c3 was written and drawn by Miriam Engelberg, with ideas and suggestions provided by CompassPoint staff and many others. Two popular compilations of the cartoons, They Came from Planet501c3 and Planet501c3: The Next Generation, are only available for purchase through CompassPoint. Help support the Planet by buying either collection to give to your co-workers!
