    Nearly every nonprofit has does some type of mass emailing. We need to inform our network of members, volunteers, donors, staff, friends, and family of what is happening. Yet it can be frustrating when our messages aren't received, read, or acted on.

    During this break we're talking through a few ways that you can improve your emails. Over time you'll have better open rates and more action. The goal is not simply to boost numbers, but to get your community into action. It is easier than you think!

    Caffeine and Correspondence is a great monthly event in Minneapolis. It helps people connect over the written word. In our conversation Jessica shares about where this event came from, and the impact that writing a quick note can have. It is a great reminder of how easy it can be to care and value others. Caring well for those who support and serve alongside us in our nonprofits is important.
