Welcome back to the third issue of Blue Avocado 2.0—the first to launch alongside our newly redesigned website! We know you’ll love this issue, chock full of the tactical, practical, in the trenches tips and tools you’ve come to depend on from us.
Aside from the illuminating “Editor’s Pick” piece that dispels the notion that your nonprofit’s annual budget needs to somehow magically balance, this issue dives into one of the most pressing challenges facing nonprofits: diversifying your aging donor database by engaging millennials in your work, and even turning them into fundraisers for you! We also cover a couple other fundraising topics, namely how development is fundamentally different than sales and how to secure resources for “Friends of” affiliate nonprofits. But wait… there’s more! Curious what you can do to bump up the effectiveness of your email campaigns? Looking for leadership and management tips from someone who coached teams to championships? And finally, are you burning to Ask Rita how to ensure compliance when your employees work across different regions? Well, we’ve got you covered.
Beyond that, we’d really appreciate your input on the new site. What do you love, what do you hate, and most importantly, how can we better help you find the insights and content that help your cause thrive? If you can take a few minutes out of your busy day to check out the new site and complete this brief survey, we’d really appreciate it.
Thanks again for your time and attention, and for the opportunity to help you help others. The rope is truly stronger than the thread, and when we come together and collaborate, amazing things become possible! Wishing you much success and impact with your work, and see you again in a couple months.
