Don't be Timid in Asking
"While your charity's well-reasoned argument might get me thinking, it's your ability to touch my emotions that gets me giving. That's why professional copywriters always lead with emotion in their appeals to individual donors... and then some reason; not the reverse." - Candid

Volunteers and Nonprofits
“Most nonprofits, however, are not set up to handle volunteers and do not have the personnel, plans, or policies in place to manage them. When the occasion arises and a corporate funder or a board member wants to bring employees over for a day of community service, it is not something a nonprofit can easily say “no” to. But these requests can burden overworked staff with new assignments that often take them away from other important “real” work.” - Nonprofit Quarterly
Learn more about volunteer management and more at the Serve Idaho Conference on March 4.
Board MEMBER Boot Camp
Boot camp isn’t just for chairs and presidents! At Board MEMBER Boot Camp, attendees will leave with a better understanding of their roles, tasks, responsibilities and be able to identify strategies to increase board member engagement.
Advocating for your Mission and Collaboration
Navigating advocacy can seem daunting but as a nonprofit it may be needed to help move your mission forward.
