What should be top of mind for nonprofits right now?
To answer this question, I turned to Jon McCoy and Becky Endicott of We Are For Good. As hosts of the We Are For Good podcast and community, they’ve talked with hundreds of people in the sector, so I was curious about their perspectives.
The Quick Summary
- Digital community is the future. Look for ways to unite your supporters virtually and facilitate connections between them, like regular Zoom calls with your monthly givers to update them on programs.
- Storytelling is the most powerful tool in the nonprofit arsenal. Don’t just tell your good stories once, syndicate them across channels, and look for ways to reuse the pieces.
- Mental health should be a huge priority in the sector. Compassion fatigue, burnout, and stress are occupational hazards for nonprofit folks. Check out We Are For Good’s mental health resources as a starting place.
