Do you remember Lisa Sargent’s brilliant treatise on changing communication styles? This week’s What’s in my Inbox, featuring an email from the current presidential campaign, is a perfect example of what we’re talking about. Honest. Raw. Authentic and emotionally compelling.

I loved this week’s Power of Nonprofit Storytelling | Alfie the Astronaut – NSPCC TV Ad. You will too.

How do you nourish and grow your organization’s monthly donors? New from Brittany’s Hope in this week’s What’s in my Mailbox.

Board development on a budget? You better believe it.

Want to get rid of those ‘suggested videos’ YouTube automatically inserts at the end of your videos? Whenever you can remove distractions, you should. Simple to remove; here’s how.

All this complaining about events being bad for nonprofits. Trust Mary Cahalane to come up with some wonderful alternatives. Partied to death: can we escape the gala trap?

How to Make Your Goals by the End of the Year. New from the Veritus Group.

Also from Veritus: Small Organizations: Where Do You Find Major Donors? Part 1 of 2  Right. Under. Your. Nose.

Interesting and helpful links Pamela,
I visited your site via your comment at Nathalie blog and i really enjoyed that quote by Nelson Mandela.

I will take time to check out the links you mentioned here because they really looks informative especially the post about achieving your goals at the end of the year.

However, i think you mistakenly linked the same How To Make your Goals at the end of the Year article to this one… 5 Reasons Why Social Media Buttons Hurt Nonprofit Websites, check out the links.

Thanks for sharing.
