    How Funders Can Support Nonprofit Workers in the Age of Burnout, Part 3: Desiree Flores, General Service Foundation

    How Funders Can Support Nonprofit Workers in the Age of Burnout, Part 3: Desiree Flores, General Service Foundation

    This episode spotlights how one foundation has made an ongoing commitment to supporting “healing justice” as part of its grantmaking.  We're pleased to speak with Desiree Flores, Executive Director of the General Service Foundation.

    As they say on the Foundation's website, "Social justice work can be affirming, invigorating, and nourishing. But for leaders in the struggle, the work can also be rife with conflict, overwork, isolation, trauma, and oppression...we have heard movement leaders struggling increasingly with burnout and exhaustion. At GSF, we’ve been exploring how we, as funders, can support movements in creating space to cultivate resilience, wholeness, and well-being among the individuals and organizations that comprise our movements."

    Toward that end, since 2018 General Service Foundation has funded healing justice work in two ways: 


    Supporting organizations that offer healing and resilience services and trainings to social justice leaders and organizations, and
    Supporting the Foundation's grant partners (aka grantees) with healing justice stipends.

    This is the third in our three-episode series called "How Funders Can Support Nonprofit Workers in the Age of Burnout."

    This episode and the series it's a part of are based on Fund the People's presentation at the Center for Effective Philanthropy Conference in Fall of 2023. Our session focused on how funders can support nonprofit workers in the age of burnout. Thanks again to CEP for including us in the conference.

    Forging a Multigenerational, Multiracial Nonprofit Workforce

    Forging a Multigenerational, Multiracial Nonprofit Workforce

    We don’t need Baby Boomers to get out of the way faster.

    We don’t need Millennials or Generation Z to slow down their ambition for leadership.

    And we certainly don't need to continually ignore Generation X.

    Instead, we need to intentionally create a multi-generational, multiracial nonprofit workforce.

    The more we push long-serving leaders to get out, the more resistance we get. The more we push emerging leaders to stay put, the less likely they'll be to stay in their organizations and in the sector. We need new ways to be together, to work together. Here are four suggestions for building a multigenerational, multiracial nonprofit workforce.

    This episode wraps up Season 5 and this round of Rusty’s Rants and Reflections. You can hear the full Rants and Reflections series on this Spotify Playlist: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/0bkiGBJqDkRwZzcw5qmdNs?si=b7fCU-56RPuhJdW9FdzeKQ&pi=u-jWbHl1hIT5mS.

    The Nonprofit Nutrition Cycle

    The Nonprofit Nutrition Cycle

    In this episode, I'm offering up another one of my Rants and Reflections. Today's topic: The Nonprofit Nutrition Cycle.

    Let’s face it: many foundation grants are frozen solid. They are restricted by purpose, program, time, even by line items in the budget. To borrow language from George Overholser’s great article on buying, not building, frozen funds are great for “buying” programs, but are terrible for “building” the very organizations that run the programs.

    In a just and effective system, every funder would, at minimum, contribute flexible funding and, at best, intentionally deploy resources to build strong organizations, rather than just selectively buying a piece of one specific program.

Important information and perspective

Everyone connected to nonprofits in any way - funders, workers, philanthropists, gov’t leaders at all levels, for-profit leaders, those in need, and those concerned about improving the greater good, should be listening to Fund the People.

Elevating the unsung trailblazers

I appreciate that the people highlighted on this show are not the same folks making the headlines in the philanthro-sphere. It’s great to learn about nonprofit leaders whose work is groundbreaking - whether its national or hyper local!

Finally

…a podcast about one of the most critical drivers of nonprofit success that most people have not thought much about. Rusty has brought together a wide range of interesting thinkers and perspectives on the topic of talent investing and makes you realize we should have been doing this work a long time ago. Not to worry. Rusty will help get you caught up.
