I’ve collected bountiful gifts for you this month — because it’s a good time to curl up next to a warm fire with your laptop and get in some inspirational reading. Remember, my motto is: “If I know it, I want you to know it!” I’m dedicated to paying it forward after 30 years of…Details
This week’s Click-it is a cornucopia filled with an eclectic mix of goodies. Maybe not as good as Thanksgiving turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes or pumpkin pie, but… sometimes your mind and soul need feeding too!
To my friends in the U.S. who celebrate Thanksgiving this week, have a good one filled with many blessings. For those of you scattered elsewhere around the globe, make yourself a nice meal anyway and gather together with people you love. Life’s too short not to.
This poem I wrote several years ago seems particularly appropriate this year, so check out “Attitude of Gratitude” if you’ve a mind to.
And if you can, try to find some time this week to dig into some of these resources.
Now… go make our world a more caring place, and hug yourself some hope!
I am thankful for you,
Friday is Veteran’s Day in the U.S., so let’s give gratitude to all those who served and serve so that others will have better lives.
That counts you in too (Big time IMHO) – so here are links to articles you may find helpful whether you’re a veteran fundraiser/nonprofit marketer or a newbie. I’m emphasizing strategies to help you with this critical year-end time of year, when folks do their most significant giving.
Plus, as usual, you’ll find plenty of free resources – downloadable templates, webinars, cheat sheets, and more.
Thanks for doing the important work that you do. It gives me great comfort in these turbulent times to know you are there. Helping. Listening. Opening yourself to understanding. Holding people accountable. Restoring faith. Extending kindness. Kicking butt when you have to. Being the very best you can be, and the best of what humankind has to offer.Details
It’s almost Halloween, and a great time to think about how not to scare your donors away; rather, give them treats that will keep ‘em coming back year after year! Here are links to articles you may find helpful.
Plus, as usual, you’ll find a cauldron full of free resources – downloadable templates, webinars, cheat sheets, and more. Take some time to continue your professional growth and education. It will make you stronger, I promise. Share with others on your staff too; there’s something for everyone!Details
Here are some goodies to help you raise as much money as possible during the last quarter of the calendar year! Keep your focus on inspiring storytelling that sets you apart from everyone else, yet don’t forget that who you tell your story to matters as much as how you tell it. As does where you disseminate it (hopefully not just by snail mail, but also online and face to face). Click on these links to helpful articles I hope will delight you.Details
It’s mid-September and we’re well on the way towards the year-end rush of “giving season!” Now it’s time to get serious about end-of-calendar-year fundraising. It’s when folks are most generous, and you don’t want to miss out. So while I’ll continue to offer links to articles and resources aligned with my top “Dive the Five” fundraising fundamentals for 2016, and beyond, I’ll also include some practical, basic stuff that falls a bit outside these categories.
It’s all good stuff and, as usual, plenty of free resources too. I count seven freebies, and 17 great articles! I dare you not to find something you can use right now.Details
Welcome back from summer – at least for my North of the Equator friends. I hope you had the opportunity to read through some of the resources I offered up in my Summer Click-it Extravaganza. If not, there’s still time over this long week-end.
