Have you tapped into the exuberance that younger volunteers bring? Younger volunteers have so much to offer if you learn how to “harness their power.” Check out our 2-hour class on 4/23 http://ow.ly/L26Td
Creating strategies to attract and retain young(er) volunteers should be part of your organization’s volunteer activities. Millennials, teenagers and pre-teens and even older children have energy and are willing to work for social issues that impact their generation. By getting younger people to donate their time, nonprofits are laying groundwork for future support on so.

Philadelphia has so many unique and intriguing nonprofits like “Hidden City?” What have you seen of it ? Read the interesting story in today’s Inquirer: http://ow.ly/Kv4uL
Peter Woodall's favorite places in Philadelphia are the buildings most people drive by.<br/>Take an abandoned factory on North Broad Street that's been turned into loft apartments. Untouched by a modernizing city, the old machinery was left to collect dust, and a sign stayed for years on the wall warning the long-gone workers that they weren't allowed to take any work home when they left for the day. Pinups from another era hung in the locker roo...

More than 75% of donated dollars comes from individuals and direct mail is still the best way to reach those people. Learn how to get the best return on this powerful investment at “Building an Effective Direct Mail Program” on 3/27.
While someday online fundraising may eclipse direct mail, the latter is still alive and well. Direct mail is responsible for 75% of new donors and most nonprofits receive more than 75% of their total donated revenue through direct mail – so clearly this is an area that demands attention. For the foreseeable future, successful development.

Here's a reminder of the new date and location of the rescheduled "The Art of Nonprofit Story-Telling" workshop with Ebony Staton Weidman. http://ow.ly/KpdZA
One of the most effective tools a nonprofit has to raise funds and win support is through story-telling. It is an art that can be shared via publications and direct mail; verbally, from the elevator speech to a funder presentation; and online, using today’s social networking tools. A well-told story inspires and compels action and.

Nearly 2/3 of local nonprofits have no succession plan for either a planned or unplanned departure of the current leader. Learn about how to secure your organization’s mission without leaving your office at a Webinar on 4/10.
No executive director should plan on being in his or her job forever; nor should a board count on that. Yet few organizations have anything resembling a formal plan to replace the executive director (let alone a founder). If you’re among those organizations that haven’t addressed the vital issue of succession planning, you’re not alone.

Nonprofit organizations, particularly those with the fewest resources, need to take advantage of every opportunity they can get. A proactive media relations program represents some of the strongest opportunities. Get comfortable with the media, the various options and their quirks and personalities. Take “Effective Media Relations” on 3/20 to be sure you’re not missing these opportunities to promote your organization, its message and its people.
While the world of media has changed drastically in recent years, the fact that all media are swamped with requests for coverage remains constant. But working with the media continues to offer tremendous value to organizations in conveying their messages, promoting events, and communicating with huge audiences, so whether you’re sending out traditional news releases.

Wm. Shatner missed Leonard Nimoy’s funeral due to a commitment to attend a Red Cross fundraiser. Social media took him task, but what about the people who paid to attend a fundraising event to see Shatner. Was he being loyal to his commitments and to a nonprofit he supports or did he deserve to be skewered?
A trio of celebrities congregate at the Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach to help raise money for the American Red Cross of South Florida.
