Ohio Nonprofits No Longer Need Permits to Gift Alcohol – But There Are Other Rules

Nonprofits often use alcohol in raffles, wine pulls and other fundraising events. Until recently, agencies were required to have a permit to do so. While permits are no longer required, there are other rules to be followed, including a requirement to have purchase receipts for “spiritous” liquor and submitting receipts to the Division of Liquor Control.

Disability Language Style Guide

As language, perceptions and social mores change rapidly, it is becoming increasingly difficult for journalists and other communicators to figure out how to refer to people with disabilities. Even the term “disability” is not universally accepted.

This style guide, which covers dozens of words and terms commonly used when referring to disability, can help. The guide was developed by the National Center on Disability and Journalism at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication and was last updated in the summer of 2021.

At OneSource Center we are committed to ADEI (access, diversity, equity and inclusion) and wanted to share this useful guide with all of you as well! Together, we build a thriving community for all. View the entire style guide on the NCDJ website
