Jessi Zenker brings a lot of joy into the KFGO studio as she announces the 2021 fundraising total from RDO Caters Taters for Charity that benefits the great work being done by BIO Girls. This spud-tacular tradition of giving has contributed nearly $900,000 to local charities since it began more than 20 years ago. "It seems fitting that RDO Taters Caters is the week before Thanksgiving,” Missy Heilman, BIO Girls founder and executive director said. “The board and staff of BIO Girls are filled with gratitude – gratitude for RDO and its employees for all the work they put into making the event a success.” Annually, BIO Girls reaches 1 in 25 girls in North Dakota. The organization's strategic goal is to expand this to 1 in 6 girls by 2025, a 300% increase.Whether you are an RDO Caters Taters veteran or this was your first event, thank you to all who showed support in any and every way possible. This tradition of giving has contributed nearly $900,000 to local charities since it began more than 20 years ago. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
In this episode, Jason chats with Rick Kiernan with Convergent Nonprofit Solutions about the scope and variety of fundraising campaigns that can occur in a community. As an EDO, should you be concerned about being involved in multiple fundraising efforts? If you raise money for a new community building, will that dry up dollars for economic development programming? The answer, Rick says, is to tap into the priorities of funders. Different businesses, organizations, and individuals have different funding priorities. The key is to hit the right investor at the right time for the right cause. You can grow the fundraising pie in your community as it is not a zero sum game. Connect with Rick Kiernan More about Convergent Nonprofit Solutions
This is our Wednesday episode when we niche down to a single topic, looking to expand our understanding of one particular technology trend or another. And this week, it was all about the ConstitutionDAO.For those who weren't online last week, here's what you missed: a not-so-subtle group of strangers on the internet banded together to try to buy one of the remaining thirteen copies for the constitution. With crypto. The bold bid eventually fell short, but many saw it as an inspiring onramp into how communities can mobilize around a shared goal in a Web3 world. The whole movement, from its meme start to its poetic, and billionaire Ken Griffin-themed, end, was just too interesting for Equity to not dedicate an entire episode to.So, Natasha and Alex brought on Lucas Matney and Anita Ramaswamy to unpack, decompress, and bond over our shared experience of witnessing this 'financial flash mob.'We talked about what a DAO is, and what they might be used for. We dug into the question of just how many folks the effort really brought to the larger "Web3" space. And, of course, we had to talk about gas fees, NFTs, and the pace of innovation in crypto more broadly. Lucas even broke out an excellent analogy to explain level-two chains!The crew were generally bullish on the blockchain economy, if skeptical of some of its current uses. In short, the potential remains potent in crypto even if some of its projects, today at least, are a bit more boring than breakthrough. Crypto, we're told, is going to shake up the world. More of that, we reckon, and less of the meme-wars wouldn't be amiss.
James Joaquin is the co-founder and managing director of Obvious Ventures, leading the team's investments focused on plant-forward approaches to food (like Beyond Meat), “good for you” consumer goods (like Olly), and companies at the forefront of how people find and do their best work (like Incredible Health). Joaquin has been working in venture capital since 2007. Prior to investing, he served as president and CEO of Xoom.com and president and CEO of Ofoto, and co-founded When.com. In this conversation with Stanford adjunct lecturer and STVP director of principled entrepreneurship Jack Fuchs, Joaquin discusses his commitment to “world positive investing” and his belief that many highly successful 21st century businesses will be devoted to solving the world's biggest problems.
Ya'll. University of Wisconsin Foundation & Alumni Association has a STORY!
April describes herself as a loyal Baltimore Raven's fan and a lover of all things philanthropy, equity, and social justice. Our conversation today on The Fundraising Talent Podcast began with the assertion that fundraising has deliberately distanced itself from the truth and begs the question of what would happen if we were more honest with ourselves and our donors. April wants us to confront the fact that we are taught to be ok with the disconnect between reality and the narrative we tell the world. Perhaps our appeal letters are some of the most obvious examples of such deceit. April pointed out that our dishonesty amounts to a lack of authenticity and an obsession with jargon. April's career has afforded her experiences on both sides of the shop, both raising major gifts and administrating programs. Having the advantage of multiple vantage points, she understands why it's so easy to tolerate a story that isn't true. But it isn't just those of us on the receiving side who are telling a tale. April pointed out that our funders aren't telling themselves a story that is any more accurate than ours. After discussing what is true and what isn't, and contemplating how this translates into the experiences of women of color, our conversation ended in much the same place as it began. Those on both sides of the exchange need to insist on the truth. The question remains, who has the desire to tell it? As always, we are especially grateful to our friends at CueBack for sponsoring The Fundraising Talent Podcast.

This week Brian speaks with Ben Stein, CEO of Staple! Relying on humans to extract, enter and manage data is a valuable waste of resources. These activities can be slow, error-prone and expensive, and worse still, no employee enjoys this sort of mundane, repetitive work. Staple has developed an ML tool that reads, interprets and extracts structured data from documents faster, more accurately and more affordably than any human can, at scale. Our data extraction capabilities operate successfully regardless of layout or language. Although business documents like invoices and receipts are common use cases for AP automation, we can an also capture data from semi-structured and unstructured documents including medical claims, bills of lading, trade settlement documentation and many more.

Maricel Saenz, Compound Foods: Coffee without Coffee Beans, Ep 157 People continue to experience how global warming can have devastating effects on the world. Crop yields have already started to decline from rising temperatures, changes in rainfall patterns and extreme weather events. Climate change is threatening the future of many foods, and that includes coffee. This threat and her love for coffee inspired Maricel Saenz to launch Compound Foods, a food science company to reinvent coffee. Originally from Costa Rica, where coffee is ingrained in the national identity, Maricel wanted to dedicate her time and energy to creating solutions fighting climate change. Maricel left her first startup to create a product that could recreate coffee in a sustainable way. Coffee is one of the most consumed products in the world and it comes with a large water footprint. Maricel's idea for Compound Foods is to replicate the coffee experience with less environmental impact. In this episode, I sat down with Maricel to talk about Compound Food's mission in tackling climate change, her career in science without being a scientist, her journey of building a company at the start of the pandemic and the future of the coffee industry. I hope you enjoy this conversation with Maricel Saenz. From fighting bacterias to fighting climate change Maricel shares why she left her first startup to start Compound Foods to fight climate change. Maricel's experience in biotechnology and her longing to impact the world positively were the catalyst to launch Compound Foods and ultimately, what happens on a coffee farm in the lab. Find out why Maricel decided to follow her passion to tackle climate change in this episode of Crossing Borders. If you want to learn more about Maricel's backstory, I talked to her in Episode 76 about the battle against drug resistant bacteria and the challenges of raising capital in Silicon Valley as a Latina entrepreneur. Drawing inspiration from nature Research shows that 50% of the land we grow coffee on today may not be suitable for growing coffee in the future. A big chunk of coffee production could go away over the next few years due to environmental changes, for which Marciel believes we must take action and start producing coffee in an environmentally friendly way. Compound Food's draws inspiration from nature and relies heavily on the fermentation process to create a product that has the same chemical composition of coffee beans. The microbes play a key role in creating flavors and aromas, and are grown efficiently and in a scalable way. Check out this episode to learn more about why Maricel wants to make coffee without coffee beans! Changing the mindset around climate change Maricel conveys an empowering message to go from climate anxiety to taking action. We can still do something significant about climate change and the environment. Technologies and companies are being built around climate change and people have the power to make big changes through simple choices, like buying a product that has less of an environmental impact. Listen to the rest of this episode to hear Maricel on changing the mindset and the advice she would give to her younger self. Coffee is one of the most consumed products on the planet and the way we produce it today has a high environmental impact. Solving this global problem is not easy and needs all hands on the (coffee) table. If this resonates with you, Compound Foods is on the lookout for more passionate team members to join the team. Check out this episode of Crossing Borders to hear Maricel tell her story in her own words and her enthusiasm about creating a climate-resilient future, starting with your morning coffee.

Megan is the Sr. Donor Relations Director at the Salvation Army in Milwaukee, and she is excited about hiring a new fundraiser to join her team.

Juanma Gironella, Guros: Reshaping The Latin American Insurance Industry, Ep 156 The traditional insurance experience in Latin America is an inefficient, non tech process. Most people don't want to buy it but know they have to. At the same time, customer expectations of instant digital transactions sustained seamlessly across digital channels are increasingly the norm. This is exactly what Juanma Gironella is providing with Guros, the operating system for insurance in Latin America. After working in financial services consulting, Juanma decided to build digital tools to help bring the insurance industry into the digital age. In this episode, I sat down with Juanma to discuss how Guros is making inroads into the insurance industry and gaining market share with a digital model that is democratizing access to insurance and bringing new opportunities to innovate, improve customer experience, and ultimately, driving growth. Improving the insurance experience Juanma contrasts the experience of comparing and purchasing auto insurance in Guros as easy as booking a flight or a hotel online. But the innovation opportunities do not stop there: on top of offering a better buying experience, what sets Guros apart is the fact that they provide value to the customers after purchase with new products, like a wallet that allows users to have multiple insurance products, and an API integration for fintech companies. This integration works like an embedded marketplace, enabling fintech companies to rapidly deploy integration into their app and allowing users to self-serve with a few clicks. Learn more about how Guros is helping customers and fintech partners in this episode of Crossing Borders. The insurance opportunity in Mexico and Latin America Guros is building their business model by addressing the pain points customers experience in their relationships with incumbent insurers. Of the $240 billion a year industry in Latin America, no player has over 5% of the market, which reflects that the (poor) value proposition essentially is pretty much the same in the entire region. Check out this episode of Crossing Borders to learn more about this massive opportunity in Latam and why Guros is already thinking of other verticals. Fundraising during Covid times Juanma's first fundraising experience was with Guros during the Covid pandemic. He explains that finding the right partners and bringing in the right people is key to getting the insights that allow things to start happening at a faster pace. Learn more about Juanma's fundraising journey with Guros, and how it is to have never met in person over 95% of his team in this episode of Crossing Borders. In Mexico and other relevant Latin American markets, insurance in general, and especially auto insurance, are radically fragmented markets. Consumers have to go through a painful experience when signing up for and purchasing insurance, and even after purchasing, it's hard to get value from the insurer provider. Guros is leading the change to disrupt innovation in the insurance industry. Outline of this episode: [03:01] - About Guros [03:44] - Before and after for insurance retail users [08:20] - Doing partnerships with potential partners [14:51] - From the idea to real traction [18:27] - Insurance opportunities in Mexico and Latin America [21:47] - The growth opportunity in the insurance industry [25:00] - The fundraising experience during the pandemic [28:20] - Resources and recommendations [29:49] - Advice to Juanma's younger self Resources & people mentioned: Juanma Gironella Guros Growth Series by Reforge Training courses at ConversionXL First Round Review Mexico Investment %of GDP "Our greatest weakness lies in giving up.

There's an art to fundraising but there's not a one-size-fits-all approach for effective fundraising. At the same time, however, there is a science to why and how people give. In fact, there is a growing industry around the neuroscience of philanthropy and fundraising that helps us understand how people make decisions and what drives their […]
We're concluding our final episode in our Friday series, Donor Engagement: Kindergarten Style with this week's discussion about why Small Things Matter. Relationships that are triggered by process may be reliable, but they can also feel mechanical. We're talking about exerting effort and delighting in the small things that creates true connection and deeper engagement
On the Glossy Week in Review podcast, hosts Danny Parisi and Zofia Zwieglinska break down some of the biggest fashion news stories of the week. In this week's episode: Nike paused its Travis Scott collaborations, wholesale marketplace Faire raised $400 million and Bottega Veneta got a new creative director (while rumors swirled about why Daniel Lee left so abruptly). Plus, a closer look at Shein's massive -- and unethical -- growth.
When I first announced that I would be having this conversation with Tyrone, I described his telling of Madam CJ Walkers story as an indictment of the wizards of contemporary fundraising and I asked how much better the fundraising experience would be if we were encouraged to engage with donors like Madam Walker in more meaningful ways. While it's certainly admirable that so many of our organizations express a willingness and desire to engage with more diverse communities, we have to also interrogate the reasons why we haven't done so in the past. What have we not acknowledged about history or our identity that has prevented individuals like Walker from being better represented among our constituency. Tyrone shared with us today that he wanted to answer the question of what it meant to be a generous African American woman in the midst of Jim Crow and what it means to be a philanthropist who gives on their own terms. For Walker, giving wasn't about what you give away late in life or as an extracurricular activity that you do with friends. Giving for Walker was a demonstration of her philanthropic agency and for causes that couldn't wait until she had accumulated a lifetime of wealth. In a very practical sense, Tyrone's book challenges us consider how many of today's donors find themselves in the unseen middle, desiring meaningful engagement, and intent on contributing in meaningful ways and yet, instead of seeing them, we have pushed them into a cheap, mid-level donor program that neither recognizes nor acknowledges the opportunities such donors truly represent. Tyrone's book, Madam C.J. Walker's Gospel of Giving: Black Women's Philanthropy during Jim Crow was recently awarded the 2021 AFP Global Skystone Partners Research Prize on Fundraising and Philanthropy, and the Alliance for Nonprofit Management's 2021 Terry McAdam Award for best book in nonprofit management.

What do you do when a terrorist organization takes over your country and your nonprofit still needs to function? Fereshteh Forough knows this better than most. Fundraising requires an endless amount of time and energy. Not to mention the added stress of knowing people rely on your ability to reach your donation goals. Her nonprofit, Code to Inspire, provides girls and women in Afghanistan the ability to learn to code. Of course, since the Taliban took over again their mission has become a much more dangerous and difficult task. In this episode, you'll hear how Fereshteh managed to raise funds faster than she thought possible during a time of crisis. Listen to find out how being precise with her asks and connecting to donors through video played a key role. Want to dig deeper about some of the topics on today's show?

Welcome to Season 3 of The Ethical Rainmaker a podcast that explores the world of inequity in nonprofits and philanthropy including where we should step into our power or step out of the way! It is part of my desire and effort to bring zero cost information, case studies and inspiration, to everyone in the third sector, and especially those who know or are learning that we've been complicit in upholding some problematic practices, and maybe some dishonestly but want to do better on this journey.

Their testimony chips away at the idea of the inherent goodness of the charitable sector.My Grandmother's Hands: Resmaa Menakem: a book about human bodies and how trauma affects us.

“Know your worth. People always act like they're doing more for you than you're doing for them.” – Kanye West I am so excited to welcome Lindsay Simonds to the T&T mic! Lindsay is a fellow Colorado native and all things non-profit pro! Lindsay founded LSC (Lindsay Simonds Consulting) in 2017 and is a senior, non-proﬁt, fundraising and management professional with a decade of experience partnering with organizations for transformational change. Having raised over $1 billion philanthropic dollars Lindsay's mission and the message are just beginning. Today we discuss Lindsay's journey navigating the nonprofit world where investing and spending are often misunderstood. Shouldn't we do it all for free if for charity? No. We explain why AND how this awareness of self-worth translates into all you do, in every arena (personally and professionally). Dialing into your self-worth, measured by money or time, can be a tricky process. It's takes time, awareness, trail, and error to really dial into your own valuation point. Then there are the conversations around price point phycology and your own narrative around money. We are here to unpack it all with you! If you are an emerging or experienced entrepreneur (or thinking about taking the leap), this conversation is for you! Developing self-worth and putting a price on it is not easy, but very necessary. Enjoy this convo and put some respect on the checks you will continue to write to yourself… #youreworthit :) Highlights: Giving and making money in the nonprofit space. Self-awareness, self-worth, growth. Money management and identifying our own narrative around money. How to ask for money and how to know what you deserve. Comparing the non-profit and for-profit work spaces. Monetizing the scares, battles, time, and energy. Taking the leap from the corporate world to the entrepreneurial one. Priorities and priority shifts. Maturity, security, and taking risks.

Fundraising and philanthropy make a lot of people very uncomfortable. A big part of that is our discomfort with money generally, but a lot of it is how our sector and philanthropy have been structured and the power systems it upholds.Our sector faces challenges related to power, change, and resource redistribution for impact. In today's episode, Yonis Hassan, Co-Founder, and CEO of The Justice Fund discusses one of his biggest challenges with the philanthropic sector - the hoarding of money in foundations. According to the Justice Fund's most recent campaign, Move The Money, charitable foundations in Canada are holding onto over $85 billion dollars in charitable assets. If distributed, this money would create transformative change in providing security and proper access to opportunities and long-term resources to underserved communities. Join the conversation as Yonis shares why the time to use this money is now. It's time to call for change.Myths that Yonis wants us to walk away from:Preserving a foundation's capital over a long time is in the best interest of the public. It's not. There's going to be more money coming into this sector. There's going to be more innovation, more creativity, and more risk-taking. Yonis urges the charitable sector to use the abundance of taxpayer's assets in a timely manner when we have a plethora of crises facing our communities. Small nonprofits cannot make big changes in the philanthropy sector. Whether you are a grassroots organization, an unincorporated organization, a volunteer, a board member, someone who just donates to organizations, there will be an opportunity for you to speak up around these issues. Yonis' thoughts around reforming philanthropy: Changing the status quo. The foundations and funds in our sector have amassed a total of $85 billion. Reforming philanthropy entails leveraging the abundance of these assets to have a greater impact and serve the most vulnerable communities, especially during times of crisis.Stepping up as a collective sector. We must act collectively and have an open discussion about charitable laws and how they contribute to discrimination and continued oppression of indigenous communities in order to mobilize resources that will improve the situation of the vulnerable populations. It's time to speak up. Yonis encouraged the philanthropic community to speak up. Whether it's speaking with your municipal council or your MP or MPP, your donors, or your board members, stand up and urge them to take action and make these legislative reforms.Favorite Quotes from Today's EpisodePost your favorite quote on social media to share with us!“With over $85 billion of charitable assets in this country, we can be using that to invest in affordable housing, to invest in climate financing, to invest in transit, to invest in cooperatives, but we choose nKeela - CRM Buyer's Guide The idea of buying nonprofit technology can be a daunting task.
