    Major gifts - if not now, when?

    Major gifts - if not now, when?

    Every nonprofit is looking for financial stability, and just about every nonprofit fundraising consultant will tell you that major gifts are a key component of that stability. Yet many nonprofits shy away from major gifts in favor of events, peer to peer and other types of fundraising. My guest today, fundraising coach Cathrine Yuill gives us a useful definition of major gifts that you might find surprising because it means that no matter what size of nonprofit you’re in, you’re already doing major gifts. Then she goes on to share her thoughts about how to do it well.

    How much time and money should I invest in tech to make it worthwhile?

    How much time and money should I invest in tech to make it worthwhile?

    When we ask how we can get better data, or make better use of data, or make data-driven decisions we’re soon talking about using technology in some way. Nonprofit tech and data expert Emily Hicks-Rotella talks to me in this episode about the mindset changes that are necessary for those hefty tech investments to work for us. Tech can’t do everything, it seems, so we still have to rely on the human element of engaging with technology and putting effort into making the human-tech-tech-human connection meaningful. Apologies for the odd acronym, we do our best not to geek out.

    Who is my ideal donor?

    Who is my ideal donor?

    What, really, do we know about our donors before they become our donors? What value might there be in thinking rather deeply about that? Today’s guest is nonprofit marketing specialist Maura Fitzpatrick who has a well defined process for helping nonprofits identify their ideal donors. Let’s find out how that works and what you can do with an ideal donor persona.

    How do I translate my mission so outsiders understand my impact?

    How do I translate my mission so outsiders understand my impact?

    Listeners will know that when the conversation turns to mission and impact, I’ll always recommend a clear, tightly worded impact statement. My guest today, Anna Bruni Sabhaney, would agree but she’s really looking at a deeper, more strategic problem around alignment and clarity. A former civil engineer, Anna has turned her eye for precision to the nonprofit sector and we’re all the better for it. Have a listen to us working through what impact and clarity means for nonprofits as we (hopefully) start to emerge from Covid lockdowns and turn our eyes to the future.

    How should nonprofits engage a philanthropist's delusions?

    How should nonprofits engage a philanthropist's delusions?

    If you haven’t read the book Delusional Altruism you should but first, listen to the author Kris Putnam-Walkerly tell me about some of the delusions or blind spots in philanthropy and how nonprofits should approach grant makers who suffer with any of them. We pull out some gold dust about asking the wrong questions that applies to all of us when it comes to planning and executing. Here we go.

    What are the challenges in scaling a nonprofit?

    What are the challenges in scaling a nonprofit?

    We hear about scale and scaling a lot, not just in nonprofits. But what dies it feel like to really do it? I’m joined by Annemarie Grassi Amefia who took a small after school club with three part time staff and a budget of $60,000 to 65 staff and $6 million. It took 17 years yet, if she had to do it again, she’d probably choose to slow it down. Listen to why that is.
