Encouragement Leads Innovation In Your Nonprofit 💡

Hi Reader, I’m often in awe of the incredible innovation I see in our industry.

While I’m usually there to assess or plan fundraising, I see firsthand how team culture works. But, I often wonder how that culture supports new ideas brought forward by the whole team. When a nonprofit creates meaningful change, it’s innovation that I see at...

Embrace A Digital Mindset: Leads a New Path Forward 📈

Hi Reader, I recently worked alongside an organization led by a dedicated but traditional leader, named Jared (not his real name). Rooted in old-school methods, he had done well in raising money at events and even sent a spring appeal once a year up until C19. He needed help and hired me to help build a fund development plan. I quickly saw the organization was stagnant. Donations slowed, events were no longer well-attended, and acquiring new donors required growth. I wanted Jared to act...

Idea Validation Can Make or Break Your Next Fundraising Campaign ⏰

Hi Reader, Imagine this... Your former work colleague, Jenna, now a senior fundraising professional at a well-known charity, is calling you in a panic. She immediately starts, “Remember how we pulled through that campaign we did ten years ago?" hinting at your old shared struggles and victories. "The board wants us to run a capital campaign right away," she reveals, her voice tinged with worry. Recently, they let go of two fundraisers, leaving her overwhelmed. "What's the goal? And do we even...

The Moral Of the Story

Digital Storytelling: Emotionally Connect With Your Online Audience 👩🏻‍💻

Over ten years ago, I remember reading an extraordinary story on Twitter. A staff member wrote a story series about children they help at a local charity I support. Of course, back then, we didn’t have to deal with the algorithm nonsense we experienced today, so because I followed her, I didn’t have to dig around to find it. The stories she wrote took my breath away. Childhood illness was at the forefront of their cause. Like Twitter threads act today, she created her series in chapters to...

If you’re like me, you've spent way more time working rather than planning for the new year than you care to admit. Before Christmas, I told my colleague I intended to only work on my newsletter over the holidays. It’s tough! I have time to work on my website, develop a mini-workshop, and jump back on my recently lost habit of writing daily content. Shifting our focus through the holidays allows us to think clearer and spend time on the items we can’t seem to get to in our daily schedules. It...
