Metro non-profits set lofty goals for new year

Jackson-area non-profits report lofty goals for 1999, despite a predicted economic cool-down.

The Mississippi Museum of Art is building a $30-million endowment crusade through 2008. The Mississippi Symphony Orchestra Association is kicking off a $15-million endowment campaign designed to double the budget and insure the future of the organization.

The United Way is in a transition stage, moving from traditional funding to measurable results. The Mississippi chapter of the American Heart Association is predicting double-digit growth. And the Arts Alliance is wrapping up a cultural plan for downtown Jackson.

In the event of an economic downturn, non-profit chiefs say contingency plans are simple — spend less.
