Management Tips

  • “E” or not, it’s still mail

    By The NonProfit Times — August 26, 2014

    Email is not all that different than mail — and not just because of the letter “e.” But seriously, sometimes even boring or basic is better, at least when it comes to crafting your organization’s email messages.

  • Credibility rules in final proposals

    By The NonProfit Times — August 26, 2014

    When it comes to grants, funders are looking for organizations that can deliver what they promise. “You’ll either gain or lose credibility in every section of the proposal,” said Barbara Floersch, executive director of The Grantsmanship Center in Los Angeles. “You’ve got to prove that your organization is a serious player.”

  • Don’t test at year’s end

    By The NonProfit Times — August 26, 2014

    The time to experiment or test a radically new brand is not during your nonprofit’s year-end fundraising campaign. Peter Genuardi makes the analogy to a marathon runner: On race day, you don’t try something new — whether new sneakers or a new food.

  • Judicial and regulatory environments need indemnity

    By The NonProfit Times — August 25, 2014

    Everyone considers the traditional subjects of insurance: property damage, workplace injuries, employee dishonesty and management liability.

  • Fresh tips for 403(b) compliance

    By The NonProfit Times — August 25, 2014

    One type of retirement plan that is popular with many nonprofits is the 403(b) plan.

  • Designing your next cultural edifice

    By The NonProfit Times — August 25, 2014

    If you build it they will come — unless they don’t.

  • Think about your reserve funds now

    By The NonProfit Times — August 20, 2014

    It’s OK for nonprofits to draw upon their reserves. It’s not uncommon but it’s also important for organizations to think about implementing a reserves policy long before they tap their rainy day fund.

  • Rulings on social media, disabilities, gender

    By The NonProfit Times — August 20, 2014

    Americans have been a very litigious people for a very long time (and if you disagree, papers are on their way to you). The use of social media has exponentially increased both knowledge among employees and willingness to do more than gripe around the water cooler (if there is one) or at the unemployment office.

  • Executive sessions exclude the trust quotient

    By The NonProfit Times — August 20, 2014

    Many executives find that smaller groups can help expedite the work of larger groups. This desire to get things done can also manifest itself in the use of executive sessions, meetings typically held at the conclusion of business from a regular board meeting.

  • Direct response marketing mishaps

    By The NonProfit Times — August 19, 2014

    1-800-SAVE-BAY. Easy to remember, but some people wanted the Chesapeake Bay Foundation to print it in their direct mail materials as 1-800-729-3229. No problem, said Direct Marketing Manager Danielle Green, except the number was misprinted by one digit. Even worse, the wrong number directed donors to an – ahem — “adult conversations” line.
