Welcome to the last quarter of 2020. As holidays approach, so does fundraising season. The pandemic has only heightened the imperative of honest communication with donors. “How to Give Feedback to Your Funders—Especially When It’s Hard” by Eleni Refu and Lisa Ranghelli investigates how we can reframe our sense of power and leverage what we know. “Best Tactics for Finding Government Grants Suitable for Your Nonprofit” by Maddie Zeigler M.Ed. helps nonprofits navigate through the complex endeavor of applying for government grants.
Our “Ask Rita” column addresses a question about the difference between “exempt” vs. “nonexempt” and “salaried” vs. “hourly” employees. And “Against the Current” by Robert Egger features Matt Jorgensen, a partner at Purpose, an organization with a mission to transform how companies are owned, governed, and financed.
I’m pleased to announce our next free live Q&A, “A Primer on Financial Audits for Nonprofits,” where our two panelists will cover the purpose, need, and preparation for audits. You have the opportunity to submit your questions prior to the live webinar on November 19th.
Blue Avocado is written by nonprofit organizations and their partners. If you have an article that could help other nonprofits, submit your work for the opportunity to be published. Read our contributor guidelines to learn more.
