    Tech and Fundraising: A Match Made In Heaven?

    Tech and Fundraising: A Match Made In Heaven?

    It’s inescapable! We are surrounded by technology and it’s an integral part of our everyday lives. In fact, you are probably reading this on a device that fits into your pocket or purse, and which is more powerful than the spaceship that got the first man to the moon!

    In this episode, Ryan Hyman, rh Strategic’s founder and Head Strategist, has a conversation with technology expert, Eric Andron of M.I.S. Support, Inc. about utilizing technology in your development activities as well as protecting yourself - and your donors - from malicious ransomware and other cyberattacks that are impacting not-for-profits more and more today.

    Ask Me Anything

    Ask Me Anything

    You’ve got questions. Our goal is to offer solutions! Not every Development Professional has colleagues they can turn to for guidance. Being able to rely on someone for counsel is profoundly important to our growth and effectiveness as fundraisers. In this episode we answer questions from the audience and offer opportunities for audience members to offer their own novel solutions.

    For any questions of your own, please feel free to reach out at ryan@rhstrategic.net and let's discuss your specific challenges and how I can guide you through them.

    The Not-for-Profit Job Market: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

    The Not-for-Profit Job Market: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

    We’ve all been in it. We’ve all had positive experiences as well as some not so great ones. We’ve all sat by the phone waiting for the call and some of us have had to have difficult conversations when things don’t work out.

    There can be no doubt that the job market can be tough. It can also be amazing when you find your dream job or when your organization finds a transformative new team member!

    In this conversation with Willie Hochman of the Joel Paul Group (now a division of Shepherd Search Group), Willie and I talk about the opportunities and challenges for candidates as well as not-for-profit organizations in the current job market. I challenge Willie to look into his crystal ball and offer his thoughts on what the job market will look like over the next few months and over the next few years.

    Comedy and Fundraising: No Laughing Matter

    Comedy and Fundraising: No Laughing Matter

    While we didn't find out why the chicken crossed the road, comedian Mark Schiff gave us some fascinating insights into the intersection of comedy and fundraising on yesterday's rh Strategic webinar. And along the way we had a couple of great laughs with Mark making fun of my dad jokes and him sharing some hilarious stories about being chased off the stage by a legitimate mobster (how's that for an oxymoron?!?!)

    Should your organization be looking for a hysterical — and 100% clean — comedian for your next event, please reach out to Mark at markschiff.com. Let him know you found out about him from Ryan's webinar/podcast! And if you would like to purchase his book, Why Not? Lessons on Comedy, Courage, and Chutzpah, you can find it on Amazon here.
