There is no doubt that correctly managing data is the key to success in the non-profit world. Yet, that is often easier said then done, non-profits have an overwhelming amount of data. The data encompasses the entire organization from tracking donors and gifts, to coordinating volunteers and events. Often non-profits deal with the myriad of data by running multiple databases, one for each facet of the organization. Unfortunately, while the databases work fine for holding the information, most are stand-alone. In addition, in order for databases to be useful they require constant update. As non-profits explore new methods of ...
online communications that don't suck
Imagine producing online communications you're proud to share with the world and that garner praise from funders, donors, and other stakeholders. Each month, I look at dozens of nonprofit websites and hundreds of nonprofit emails. Based on that, I am here to tell you that in general they are actually, um... pitiful. Dreadful.

Are you ... market research, surveys and trends
Excellent Website Content: Testimonials
Whenever I do a training on effective websites, I always talk about constantly updated content and how testimonials are some of the best content you can have.  I love testimonials because they are real people speaking in their own voice about why they like your organization and its work. It is one thing to hear from an employee about the work they do or what they have accomplished, but it is almost always more powerful to have a person who is not an employee speaking from their heart. It also provides an opportunity to showcase the diversity of supporters and stakeholders that like the organization. People don't ... market research, surveys and trends

Why is it so rare to see nonprofit groups that have very similar ...
It is all about the dollars. Their view is this.......Why merge and cut jobs when both can receive funding, keep the jobs and still serve a good purpose? There is no discernable reason why a non-profit would want to take over another non-profit unless it was to receive more government dollars that were allocated to the other. Still, not a common practice. I agree that it could be done better. The strong ones should stay and the weak ones should go. As a solution there should be tighter audits on behalf of the govt's federal dollars to give money to the best and most productive non-profits. Also, the public should do more ...

e) Title might change to President of Organization. Would not want them secretary to the organization. SECY needs to be another line of eyes who is always in the signature role for "things." CONs to EXDIR serving on Board 1) When not there is a clear division of responsibilities. ExeDir carries out Board policies. Board makes policies. No overlap. 2) Harder for Board to evaluate one of its own members and ExDIR should have regular evaluations 3) If position is paid there could be some animosity among members of board who volunteer toward a paid person (not always) posted 4 months ago Engaging & Energetic Speaker and Trainer, ...
