Since our little community of changemakers and nonprofit leaders has been growing over the past year, I've wanted to start a newsletter series to share resources and opportunities I know about or find, the latest social impact news and trends, and more!
I am hoping this will be helpful for you - no matter what format of change-making (nonprofit, social enterprise, special projects, etc.) you're involved in and what stage you may be in! If you're not interested in receiving these resources or information, no problem; you can unsubscribe any time.
Check out my updates and resources below!
My Latest Updates
In case you missed it: My Founder to Full-Time Academy for nonprofit founders (aspiring or current) is now open with my FIRST of several courses, Idea to Official. Idea to Official is all about helping those at the very beginning of their journey to start a nonprofit in the USA validate their idea and conduct effective market research, define their signature program and brand, learn the steps to file for nonprofit status in the USA, and more. If you're interested, check out the course here.
Videos for you: Ever have a nonprofit fundraising campaign flop, with few to no donors? (Or, worried that will be the fate of a future fundraising effort you may be planning?) In one of my latest videos, I share 3 reasons your fundraiser might not be working (and what you can do about it). Check it out: Nonprofit Fundraising: 3 Reasons Your Fundraiser Isn't Working
