This blog is designed to be a forum for sharing ideas and insights about how nonprofits can leverage communication and management strategies to increase their effectiveness and meet mission. Given the many millions of people in the U.S. and the around the world suffering indignities — chronic illness, poverty, unemployment, homelessness, disability, effects of natural disasters and displacement by war — it is imperative that nonprofits work smarter and more efficiently to fill unmet needs and provide compassion, hope and understanding to those in need. At a time when many agencies are struggling with high service demands and declining government support, nonprofits need every possible advantage.
A broad range of communications and management strategies are discussed: donor communications, direct-mail, fund-raising, executive communications, board governance/relations, social media, newsletters, grant writing, industry trends, etc. There is something for everyone interested in contributing to charitable initiaitves. Reader’ comments are actively encouraged. People from different backgrounds with different perspectives can help all of us, collectively, broaden our knowledge and skills to better serve our agencies and the causes they champion.
Please take a few moments to review archived articles and the resources provided and join me in helping the nonprofit sector remain vibrant by providing ideas and information that others can use. Thank you for taking the time to visit this site.
