This 22 minute video brought to you FREE courtesy Nonprofit.Courses
Nothing happens with your great nonprofit mission unless you have money to support it. What are your options? A LOT more than you’d think. This 20 minute nonprofit training video brings you 10 options for nonprofit revenue you may not have considered before.
Joanne brings you TONS of experience as a former executive director. With that, (by necessity, as you know) she became a top notch grantwriter.
But here’s what’s most important: she’s also has experience “from the other side,” as a grant reviewer. And that’s the experience you need from her today. It’s a perspective that’s rarely found – and available right here on Nonprofit.Courses.
But there really is more.
Joanne has developed a unique platform for content delivery that you’ll find very helpful.
By clicking on the orange button, you’ll have access to her 30 minute FREE program.
If you click on the same link two months later, you’ll get a different, NEW free 30 minute program.
These are recorded webinars. What’s really cool (IMHO) is that you can ask questions during the webinar and she can answer in real time! (or as close as she can.)
Now, by way of full disclosure, at the end, Joanne will offer you her complete grants program plus a lot of helpful extras. If you get her full program, some of the proceeds go to support Nonprofit.Courses.
This is a great opportunity to get some extremely helpful content for free – even more if you choose, and experience what could be a new form of online education all at once. Sign up today!
CharityChannel’s Stephen Nill interviews members of the Governance Affinity Group of the Alliance of Nonprofit Management. The session focuses on a research study on the leadership of nonprofit boards.
The discussion centers around a ground-breaking survey representing the second phase of research on board leadership. The first phase, the widely acclaimed Voices of Board Chairs study, investigated the roles and preparation of board chairs, surveying 635 board chairs across the United States.
Not only is there very little research that investigates nonprofit board chair leadership, but there is even less about other pivotal leadership roles within boards such as the officers and committee chairs.
We get started, introduce ourselves and do a riff on a few posted nonprofit questions. Like: what if you start a charity just to flip real estate? What’s the most insane donor database management method, and we hear from a nonprofit worried about taking donations from politicians.
Jordan Couch joins for this very spooky special episode. We answer listener nonprofit questions. Should your nonprofit buy a hearse for the local goblin elementary? What to do when your new nonprofit becomes a zombie corporation? Plus, advice to avoid being haunted by nonprofit leadership skeletons!
During the current crisis, nonprofits face a true challenge: social needs are increasing rapidly, on a global basis. But at the same time, the economy is being battered. Dedicated nonprofit leaders understand that right now, it is mission-critical to manage the revenue-generating function of your organization in as efficient, effective and productive manner as possible. That’s where the development audit comes in.
In Part 2, you’ll learn the benefits and challenges of self-evaluation. Find out if your team has sufficient capacity to do the hard work of raising funds with the Leaky Bucket Assessment for Effective Fundraising. Evaluate your budget, history of expenditures, and so on, on your own. Speak to your donors, your clients, and members of your board to get their insights.
But if you want more objective insights, take advantage of an automated approach to data gathering with the SMART Way™ Virtual Development Audit, an automated, online set of tools to gather data from an unlimited number of voices. We collate the data and provide summarized reports to you.
During the current crisis, we finally have time for the things we never have time for. And one of those is assessing the health and resilience of your development shop, with a development audit.
Development audits have a mixed reputation. They may be feared because of the anticipated costs and disruption of hours of consultant time interviewing people. Some folks are wary of such audits because they see them as “just another excuse” for consultants to charge more money.
Neither of these concerns has to be true.
A useful development audit will unlock the secrets hidden in your development shop. It will:
Get insights from as many people as possible, to illuminate their understanding of how your revenue-generating efforts actually function.
Reveal what’s working and what isn’t, so your improvement initiatives will be well targeted.
Show where there are gaps in understanding between (or within) members of the development team, including volunteers, program staff, board members and others.
Provide data (evidence) about your organization’s current realities.
In Part 1 of this two-part track, you will learn why development audits are valuable, ways you can self-evaluate, and where it pays to seek outside assistance in the process.
