Some Nonprofit Leaders Ask: Is Philanthropy Killing Itself With Kindness? - News - The Chronicle of Philanthropy- Connecting the nonprofit world with news, jobs, and ideas | Philanthropy, nonprofit management and fundraising | Scoop.it
Aaron Green's insight:

Are nonprofits exempt from crticism because they work to acheive a "higher" mission? Interesting look into the lack of neagtivity and criticism on the nonprofit sector. I really like the look at "merge, grow or go"; there are a couple million nonprofits out there, many of which are operating in the same space with the same mission. Also interesting look at engaging rather than manageing your board.

Are You Confused about What a Prospect Is?

Are You Confused about What a Prospect Is? | Philanthropy, nonprofit management and fundraising | Scoop.it
A prospect is not just “someone you hope will give you money.” It’s an individual, business or entity that has demonstrated an interest in your organization, mission, or cause.
Aaron Green's insight:

Not everyone is a prospect! From Simone Joyaux, one of my favorite fundraising bloggers, an article about how to qualify someone predisposed. Someone predisposed "whose actions suggest a possible inclination or susceptibility to my organization's mission". Not everyone is a donor prospect, and there is a process to qualify people.

Now that the New Year is underway, the question I keep hearing on everyone’s lips is, “What’s the best advice for small businesses to increase their social media networking?
Aaron Green's insight:

The Blue Focus infographic is awesome! Too many organizations only plan for the tactics, when they need to be forming strategy, defining goalsobjectives, planning for measurement and more. This is a really great pictorial for how to make a robust strategic social media plan.

Aaron Green's insight:

I really like this concept. Often nonprofit managers will not have the strong fiscal background needed to make difficult decisions or recognize trends. It seems too many people in the nonprofit world are scared of budgets, accounting and other fiscal matters. I have seen too many people fudge facts and submit improper budgets due to the lack of knowledge and experience. Hopefully StrongNonprofits.org will help make finance easier to grasp, therefore making nonprofits that much better.
