What does it mean to live a life of radical generosity? To give away more than you keep? On today's episode, Raeanne Newquist spoke with Ed and Sherri Torres, Mercy Ships partner donors, and was challenged by their life's purpose that is all about blessing others.When Ed and Sherri, a couple from Indiana, found out that their financial situation was about to significantly change, they started to discuss what they might do with the extra money. This took them on a 17-month journey of long conversations, researching organizations, learning from others who have intentionally given their resources and ultimately, they drafted a Family Giving Vision that helped them decide where best to invest their blessing.This inspiring couple will challenge you to be intentional with your finances as they share their vision and principles for investing in God's kingdom.

Gratitude feels great in the moment... but this feeling is fleeting. When it comes to celebrating the impact your donors are making, and being grateful for their support, you cannot thank them too much. In today's episode, Richard and Jeff talk about why showing gratitude is so important in building meaningful donor relationships and in your own mental well-being. They also discuss ways to bring thankfulness into your work to keep you rooted in why you do what you do. If you want more content related to how you can support your own mental well-being, check out our Webinars page and look for the webinar titled "Depleted? Overwhelmed? Start Setting Boundaries."
Are your donors on the same page as your organization when it comes to understanding the work? Often, we think that there is this great divide between us and our donors - one that is not easily bridged. But Aniel Gokhale at The Toronto Foundation has been creating programs for donors to go on a learning journey to better understand how they can change how they give to align with their values.What might be considered risky - engaging your donors in conversations about justice, equity and a redistribution of funds - has turned into a very successful fundraising campaign and community building initiative. Myths that Aneil wants us to walk away from:Younger generations don't give. In fact, younger generations often are excited to give but want a little more than just writing a cheque. They want to learn, be involved, and stay engaged. Think of how you can create a community of supporters and bring them along on a learning journey.We have to tiptoe around tough topics with our donors. It can be hard to challenge your donors beliefs around philanthropy, but definitely not impossible. Aneil has leaned on research their organization does as well as understanding the intentions of donors and their values, to broach topics of privilege and power, as well as funding organizations that have historically been underserved by philanthropy.Aneil's thoughts around bring your donors on a learning journey.You don't have to be big or well resourced to bring your donors on a learning journey. Now is the time to have important conversations about equity. The world is going through changes and the status quo is being challenged. Your donors want to align their giving with their values but might not know how. Your donors also see you as the expert, so share your knowledge and experience.Let your experts lead the way. The Toronto Foundation ensured that their new equity priorities were driven by populations they wanted to serve and support. Remember that you are the experts and your donors want to learn from you.Now is the time to ask! Younger generations care and they want to be engaged in philanthropy. They expect to be focused on justice and equity and they want to be involved. Your donors are likely committed to their community and feel connected to the work they support.Favourite Quotes from Today's EpisodePost your favourite quote on social media to share with us!“It was this idea of actually building out a learning journey and taking your donors on an experience where they're giving more than just that sum of money, but they're actually going out there and they are learning a ton of things about this topic that they care deeply about. So we basically took that concept and created a learning journey here in Toronto, focused on resilience, focused on really just trying to make people understand what the needs were in our community and really trying to underscore how they could make a difference and make an impact.”Resources from this EpisodeThe Good PartnershipToronto FoundationAneil on TwitterEmail Aneil: agokhale@torontofKeela - Year-End-Giving Jump Start Your 2021 End of Year Giving CampaignFundraise with confidence this year-end.

What you will learn in this episode:There is one question that more of us would ask than any other question: What's my purpose here?From the beginning of our history, humankind has been grappling with the age-old questions: Why am I here? What is the reason for my existence? What is the meaning of my life? Is there a reason for my presence in the universe?These questions are universal. They lurk deep within the secret chambers of every human being on earth regardless of their race, color, ethnic heritage, socioeconomic status, or nationality.Harry T. Jones teaches business leaders that: "Purpose involves having a passion for impact beyond yourself. Amazing inspiration and energy are released when we serve a purpose beyond ourselves. In business, profit is significant. But profit for the purpose of impacting others is fuel for a significant business and life!" (Read more here).As nonprofit leaders, we have the unique opportunity to serve people by allowing them to answer this question: WHAT ARE YOU DOING FOR OTHERS? Fundraising gold nugget: Stories are the currency that fundraisers collect to pay their donors.Telling stories of impact that connect the daily efforts of your mission to donors' gifts is a significant part of a fundraiser's job. Through stories, we connect the work we do to the benefits it brings to others. In the book Change Your World, John Maxwell says that connecting our mission to "the benefits it brings to others leads to better results, greater satisfaction, and well-being."In Life's Greatest Question, Tom Rath gives examples of this:"...when a cook...can literally see the people they serve, it increases that customer's satisfaction with the meal by 10%.""If the cook and customer can both see one another, satisfaction with meal quality goes up 17% and service is 13% faster.”Through well crafted stories, we allow donors to actually “see” the impact of their gift.Fundraising gold nugget: Stories of lives impacted by our mission inspire donors to give more and increase their satisfaction and well-being.Donors experience a far greater sense of belonging and dedication to your mission when you connect their gifts with stories of impact.Want more money? Tell better stories!!David
Tom's next guest is Emily Sullivan, WYPR's City Hall and politics reporter, who joins us with news that less than 20% of the $9.2 million donated to competitive candidates in Baltimore's 2020 mayoral race came from city residents, according to a new report from Maryland PIRG Foundation. Sullivan says the left-leaning advocacy group found that non-individuals, such as PACs and corporations, had a vast financial role in the Baltimore election: they accounted for just over 9% of the total number of donations, but raised 52% of the money.About a third of the total money raised came from individuals who live outside of Baltimore, while under one fifth came from city residents.

Research by Tim Wise (GDAE-Tufts University) is conclusive and fully resonates with claims by Africa's biggest grassroots movement, the Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa: the corporate capture of food systems should be rejected. Donors and government funding must shift to agroecology. This is an interview hosted by Lynn Fries of GPEnewsdocs.
When the world is spiraling, nonprofits give the world hope. However, we often falter when showing donors the difference that they made and make every day - and convincing them that they made the right decision to support us. That's where Lynne Wester comes in - thankfully! If you know Lynne, the Donor Relations Guru, then you know that she pulls no punches and does not hold back in her opinions, her expertise, and her generous advice. She is one of my absolute favorite speakers and thought leaders in fundraising, donor relations, and philanthropy. Lynne's guidance has led organizations to be recognized on the national stage for fundraising innovation, creative communication, and groundbreaking donor relations work. In this episode, we dive deep into what Lynne calls "the gospel of gratitude" - how are we serving those who make our work possible? How can we look at people and truly value them - no matter how much they give to us? And how can nonprofits further inclusivity by making daily decisions, large and small? Here are some of the topics we discussed:Why the pandemic was actually a good thing for donor relations What are the ways that we can see giving through a DEI lens and practiceHer advice on coordinating in-person eventsWhy she encourages nonprofits to drop their giving societiesHow to create an "attitude of gratitude" instead of a "culture of philanthropy" A Lynne Wester quotable: "Everybody keeps saying they want a culture of philanthropy. I want a culture of generosity."And, one more: "We need to look at people and value them far more than their monetary gift."

GUEST: Bonney Brown was Executive Director for six years at Nevada Humane Society, an open-admission shelter. She has been Chief Operating Officer, National No More Homeless Pets Director and Communications Director for Best Friends and was National Campaign Director for Alley Cat Allies. Bonney is currently president and co-founder of Humane Network, where she is often involved in assessing and creating fundraising campaigns for shelters and other animal organizations. MAIN QUESTION: What works to engage more members of the community with our animal welfare work so that we can raise more funds — and what doesn't work? TAKEAWAYS: Stories with great photos are powerful. Donors give twice as much when presented with a story about an individual animal than about the overall needs of the organization. Don't expect stories and photos to happen. Assign someone to gather them – it can even be a volunteer. Train staff to take better cellphone photos so they can snap something good when a situation arises. Use “you” and “your” in your communications so that your audience feels they are a part of what's happening. Thank people. It makes them feel they play a valued role in your organization's good works. Let people know that donations of any size help. It helps people feel comfortable sending more modest gifts. In fact, research shows that using this phrase increases the number of people who give. Communicate with your supporters more than you think you should. Fundraising is about building relationships, and relationships require communication.

Charitable giving attempts to do the most good. But how do we know which organizations are authentic? Reputable? Actually helping? Are leaders in the organizations we support representing the mission, stories and purpose of those they serve? Can we effectively measure the stewarding resources being given? We want to know that our donations are helping produce the intended outcomes. David Bryant with Heart for Africa and Nick Walsh from Changing our World teach us best practices in philanthropy.

Hundreds of Bans Off Our Bodies rallies were held across Pennsylvania and the United States last Saturday. The demonstrations brought out hundreds of thousands of people supporting access to abortion and reproductive healthcare. The Senate Judiciary Committee releases a report saying we were much closer to a serious Constitutional crisis than we thought...and we already thought we were pretty close. And, of course, some PA regulars are in the cross hairs. The House January 6 Commission says it will start issuing criminal subpoenas The Pandora Papers dropped, exposing how world leaders, celebrities, and the uber rich are using U.S. tax havens and real estate to park their riches out of the reach of taxation and public scrutiny. As described in The Washington Post, “The investigation identified 206 U.S.-based trusts linked to 41 countries.

Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Oculus all go down the day after Frances Haugen, a former Facebook employee turned whistleblower appeared on 60 Minutes and spilled the beans on Facebook ignoring its own research that its platform was causing real-world damage to democracy and well-being. The American Prospect lays out - again - how Biden can use executive actions to take decisive action on climate. So, what's it going to be, Biden? The climate or Joe Manchin's Foo Foos. And a great piece in In These Times, discusses a new report from Democratic Party consultants that shows evidence that the fate of the Democratic Party is intimately tied to the decline of union power. Pointing to the fact that the Democratic Party and the labor movement itself needs to throw everything it has into new organizing. Attorney General Josh Shapiro filed 48 criminal charges against Energy Transfer Partners for environmental damage and contamination from the Mariner East Pipeline. March on Harrisburg rained on Jake Corman's fundraising golf outing at Toftrees resort near Penn State. Wealthy donors paid between $500 - $10,000 to bend Corman's ear on the back 9. Activists lined the trail between the 10th and 11th hole, attempting to engage donors and holding signs that read “Senator Corman - Meet with Voters Not with Donors;” “Lawmaker Bribery: Par for the Course;” and “The Gift Ban Should be a Gimme.” Activists took this latest action after Senate Pro Tempore Jake Corman refused to bring Gift Ban legislation up for a vote. School Board craziness continues. I continue to dodge COVID. Mikey Stacks is Back trying to get a hold of his old senate seat. Stack's old senate seat went to John Sabatina - a Stack protege - when Mike Stack became Lt Gov. Senator Sabatina is leaving the Pennsylvania Senate for a Philadelphia court seat. Sabatina was picked as a replacement democratic nominee when the original nominee dropped out of the race. Philly politics at its finest. Captain Kirk is going to get a shot to go to space...or a part of space at least. That's right, William Shatner is getting a ride on the next Blue Origin scheduled for Tuesday, October 12.

Episode Summary On this episode of Fertility Cafe, Eloise dives into the topic of bodily autonomy in surrogacy and egg donation arrangements. Much of the opposition to surrogacy as a practice stems from a misunderstanding of what it means to be a surrogate today in America. Modern gestational surrogacy involves a mutually agreed-upon relationship with clear boundaries and complete respect and autonomy given to the surrogate mother. Eloise explores the nuances of bodily autonomy and offers her wisdom on how to navigate a potentially complicated but ultimately rewarding experience. This episode covers a variety of topics including: Why the characterization of surrogate as offering up “wombs for rent” is inaccurate and offensive The extensive vetting, screening, and setting of expectations that occurs between a surrogate and intended parts prior to any agreement being signed What is a reasonable vs. non-reasonable request for IPs to make of a surrogate A surrogate's right to make medical decisions for herself at all times, in any circumstance Red flags for potential surrogates to watch out for The very complicated question of termination or selective reduction and how bodily autonomy plays a role How the COVID-19 vaccination has become the latest point of contention in the surrogate-IP matching process What potential egg donors need to know in order to advocate for themselves and make an informed decision Resources Learn more about our podcast: Fertility Cafe Learn more about our surrogacy and egg donation agency: Family Inceptions How to apply to be a surrogate: Surrogate application process On the blog: Side Effects of Egg Donation, Understanding the Risks On the blog: Ten Things That Will Make You an Ideal Surrogate Rate, Review, and Subscribe!

In this episode… To help your donors give in an impactful way, you need to understand who they are and what they're interested in. According to Sybil Ackerman-Munson—a consultant who helps donors make a difference with their donations to charities and worthy causes—there are three common types of donors: sustainer, campaigner, and launcher donors. The sustainer donor cares about your organization, the work you're doing and wants to continue to support that work. On the flip side, there's the campaigner donor who cares deeply about a cause and is primarily looking for collaborators for partnerships. What about the launcher donor? How do you identify the different types of donor, and most importantly, how do you get in front of them? Listen to this episode of the Philanthropy212 Podcast with Penny Cowden featuring Sybil Ackerman-Munson, the President of Do Your Good LLC. She shares insight into donor trends, the different types of donors, and how to identify and connect with them. They also go into the top three things to consider when working with all three types of donors. Stay tuned to find out more!
Manchin and Sinema put big-money donors ahead of their constituents. Pelosi maneuvered the infrastructure budget legislation forward. YouTube said it would finally ban anti-vaccine propaganda content. United Airlines prepared to fire employees who refused the jab. Insurrectionist Congressperson Marjorie Taylor Greene said forced-birth should be enforced because motherhood "makes women better people." According to Stephanie Grishman Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson put his far-right fascist Christian nationalism unapologetically on display at some weird evangelical conference. The fascist Governor of South Dakota might be in hot water for allegedly pulling strings so her daughter could get her real estate appraiser license. A white supremacist was sentenced to prison on firearms charges. Dirtbag Mordor-forged Trump demon Corey Lewandowski was accused of making unwanted sexual advances at a charity event.
This week our guest is Sybil Ackerman-Munson at Do Your Good. Sybil shared with us the three types of donors that every fundraiser should know and understand. For two decades, Sybil has been a trusted advisor and has helped give away over $45 million. Sybil has served on numerous boards, task forces, and stakeholder groups; and what I most appreciated about our conversation today was that her insights have emerged from experience with being on both sides of the charitable gift exchange. I'm always up for a framework that helps us make more sense of ourselves and others, and that's what Sybil had for us this morning. As she began to describe each type of donor, I immediately began to recall personalities throughout my career who fit each part perfectly. I have to say that, as someone who has spent my entire career thinking about how to better understand and relate to donors in more meaningful ways, Sybil's three-type framework deserves to be at the top of anyone's resource list. Sybil's insights really knocked it out of the park this morning. If you'd like to learn more about Sybil and Do Your Good, visit their website here. As always, we are especially grateful to our friends at CueBack for sponsoring The Fundraising Talent Podcast.

This is the second of three conjunctions between Aug. and Nov. They're intertwined, bringing a focus to our will (Sun), communication (Mercury), and action (Mars) as it relates to relationships (Libra). . 22:30 – Saturn turns direct at 6.52 Aquarius (Oct. 10) on the symbol, “A child born of an eggshell.” Perhaps a time to explore new ideas or directions that seem unusual. . 24:05 – Thanks for listening and supporting the podcast!

At Big Duck, we define personas as tools that define a segment of your audience, who they are in connection to your work, what they care about, how to best reach them, where to find them, and more. Farra Trompeter chats with Mica Bevington, US director of communications and development at Humanity and Inclusion about how their team defines personas.
