March 15, 2019

Legacy marketing from Guinness? Who knew?! This week’s very fun Power of Storytelling.

“Thank you for believing in WORT. And thank you for being a little bit odd, peculiar, and different. We couldn’t do it without you.” Made me feel all warm and fuzzy. This week’s What’s in my Inbox.

How are you stewarding your monthly donors? The Problem With Recurring Giving. From T. Clay Buck.

When I think of our sector, I often think in terms of lost opportunities. We’re so busy pinching pennies, we’re walking right past dollars. Richard Freedlund with Lost Opportunities.

The urgency of making big funding bets on organizations led by marginalized communities. A thoughtful read from Vu Lee.

“CEOs, Boards, CFOs or Fundraisers who treat donor recognition as a cost center to be starved are fools.” AMEN! Roger Craver with Take Action Before The Trump Bump Slumps.


How often should you be conducting foundation grant research – and how? You might be surprised.
