Great article. Average revenue per user (ARPU) is one of the most important measures needed to understand the quality of revenue SaaS companies generate -- check out the Full Guide to ARPU for SaaS Companies:

Average revenue per user (ARPU) is one of the most important measures needed to understand the quality of revenue SaaS companies generate. At first glance, ARPU looks like a weird metric to track — why should I care about the average customer and the price they pay?

Great read and perspective from the Center On Nonprofits and Philanthropy: The Past, Present, and Future of Workplace Giving in the United States

Workplace giving has been one of the most distinctive elements of Americans’ tradition of small-scale charitable giving. But mounting anecdotal evidence shows that workplace giving is decreasing, likely because of changes in the nature of the workplace and in the economy more generally. This repor...

One of our finer moments as a company: helping the #OldTownAlexandria community realize the untapped valuable contributions the Torpedo Factory Art Center and Torpedo Factory Artists' Association bring to the area. Happy early anniversary, and thanks for all you do!

On September 15, 1974 the defunct U.S. Naval Torpedo Station reopened its doors as the Torpedo Factory Art Center. Today it is home to the largest number of publicly accessible working artist studios in the U.S.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As the 45th Anniversary approaches, we're making preparations to celebrate! One of the ways you'll be able to join the party is by checking out the solo show of Marian VanLandingham. In 1974, Marian, as president of The Art League, proposed a project to renovate part of the factory into studio spaces for the Alexandria Bicentennial Project. The TFAA will be honoring her vision and contribution by naming a gallery in the Torpedo Factory Art Center after her.
