NANOE Association of Fundraising Professionals Jimmy LaRose Sexual Harrassment

Is There a Secret Reason AFP (Association of Fundraising Professionals) Is Hating On Donors?

Association of Fundraising Professionals is selling snake-oil again.

Tax Reform Will Be Good for Charities

Tax Reform And Your Charity. What’s Really Happening? – Michael Rosen

Tax Reform, Charitable Giving & Your Nonprofit. I’ve got good news for charities considering the implications of the recently signed “Tax Cut & Jobs Act” bill. The Tax Foundation’s Center for Federal Tax Policy projects that tax reform will grow the economy making more money available for giving; reduce taxes increasing disposable income; increase wages generating more disposable income; and create hundreds-of-thousands more jobs.

Why Tax Reform Bill is Great for Nonprofits

What Tax Reform Means for Charity: more Money, Money, Money

What Tax Reform Means for Charity: more Money, Money, Money. The recently passed “Tax Cuts & Jobs Act” bill (which I have read in its entirety) is the greatest thing to happen to nonprofits in three decades. Especially for organizations who rely on MONEY to underwrite their programs. Consider the old adage, “there are things in life that are more important than money”, is about as silly as saying “there are things in life that are more important than […]

Finding New Donors in a Changing Giving Environment – Penelope Burk

In my previous blog, “Is Giving Tuesday Helping or Hurting Fundraising”, I referenced how this fundraiser is contributing to the over-solicitation of active donors and risking their future support.

Tracy Spears – Why Nonprofit Leaders MUST Continue Learning. You can’t lead anyone if you aren’t committed to your own personal growth. How can you be trusted to help cultivate other people’s potential when you aren’t living up to your own?

Most people are utilizing the phrase “fake it ‘til you make it.” Let me be clear…it’s okay to fake […]

Delusional Altruism Undermines Philanthropy – Kris Putnam-Walkerly

Kris Putnam-Walkerly – I’m challenging philanthropic organizations to start the new year with a renewed commitment to do good for others. It’s at the root of every philanthropic mission, after all. And, as philanthropies, we all try to make decisions that are in service to our missions, represent good stewardship, and result in the greatest impact. But sometimes, in making those very decisions, we unintentionally do more to damage our impact than to further it. […]
