Ann Green

I feel like the theme of most of my posts over the last several months is this is more important than ever. This could be a tough fundraising season, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do a campaign this fall. Something that should help is having a thank you plan. Thanking donors often takes a back seat to fundraising when you should spend equal time doing both. Many organizations just thank their donors after they receive a gift and then disappear until the next fundraising appeal.

Selfish Giving

Let's talk about the Read for Purpose Book Club ?? for a bit this week. Whenever we announce our next book, hundreds of you click on the link to get the book. This is great, right? But when the day of the actual book club meeting arrives only a few of you show up. This makes Megan and I sad - especially Megan. She openly wept at last week's book club meeting. It was really, really sad (and awkward). I even got a little weepy. ????

Let’s look at another common collaboration problem for communications staff: You can’t get the information you need from the right people to do your job well. We’ll tackle this situation using our Four Steps to Work Through Collaboration Problems. Name the Problem. Naming the problem helps you depersonalize it.
