My guest today is Chari Smith. Chari believes evaluation should be accessible, practical and usable. She founded Evaluation into Action to help nonprofit professionals create realistic and meaningful program evaluation processes. She has taught several workshops helping nonprofit professionals understand the value and use of program evaluation. Recently, she was the opening keynote speaker at the American Evaluation Association Conference. Her book Nonprofit Program Evaluation Made Simple: Get Your Data. Show Your Impact. Improve Your Programs. provides step by step instruction on how to do program evaluation. Chari has held several nonprofit roles: board member, volunteer, and program director. She started Evaluation into Action in 2005 and has worked with hundreds of nonprofit professionals. Here's what to expect during the episode: What are the core principles of program evaluation? Measuring the outcome of your programs doesn't only have to be through statistics. What could you do if the data you measured shows that the program isn't achieving anything? Does program evaluation differ based on the size and budget of nonprofits? The value of having data in making significant decisions for your organization. You can't just invest in something because it's a “feel good” thing. You need to invest in it because it's making a difference. - Connect with Chari: E-mail: email@example.com Website: http://www.evaluationintoaction.com Twitter: https://twitter.com/charismith LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/chari-smith-636b982/ Nonprofit Program Evaluation Made Simple: Get Your Data.

Confidence is a tricky thing: it's simple to say, to talk about, and to identify, but confidence is difficult to reach, and it's even harder to hold onto. During today's Nonstop Nonprofit, Justin Wheeler, Funraise CEO and Co-founder talks to a fundraiser-turned-executive-coach whose confidence unlocked an almost 4X increase in her nonprofit's revenue. Justin's conversation with Mallory Erickson goes back to his time as a fundraiser. For context, while these days it's pretty common to follow loads of skilled specialists on social media, back then many fundraisers learned on the job... they weren't necessarily taught the stuff that Mallory brings to the table, and it's a shame—fundraising is so much easier when you view your nonprofit's value through a funder's lens.Speaking of value, that's the key to confidence we mentioned earlier. Hearing Mallory lay it out, you'll see that it's all connected: when the value your nonprofit offers aligns with a funder, the dynamics of your conversation are fundamentally shifted.Listen in as Mallory and Justin discover assets you never knew you had, smash the power dynamics of outdated fundraiser-funder relationships, and try on different lenses to reveal your true confidence as a fundraiser.P.S.

Sarah Audelo is a woman of color who has been at the forefront of youth political organizing for much of the last decade — from serving as the millennial vote director for the 2016 Clinton campaign to political and field director for Rock The Vote to policy director at Generation Progress and most recently executive director of the Alliance for Youth Action—a role she will soon be stepping down from to make way for the next generation of young leaders.The Alliance for Youth Action grows progressive people power across America by empowering local young people's organizations to strengthen our democracy, fix our economy, and correct injustices through on-the-ground organizing.Nancy: Website, Instagram, Twitter Welcome to Progressive Opinions of Color (POC), a podcast that creates space for people of color in conversations about economics, politics, and culture. Your host is Nancy Wu. Nancy is an Asian American woman, an economist, and a huge politics and policy nerd. Nancy triple majored in Economics, Government (Political Science) and Gender Studies at Dartmouth and has a Master's in Development Economics from Oxford. She works as an Economist full time and has previously worked in economic policy at the White House (under Obama, of course) and progressive think tanks. The goal of this podcast is to engage the state of the economy, and other pressing topics in politics, economics, and culture, all through perspectives inclusive of the lived experiences of people of color. Whether you're new to politics or already a huge politics nerd, we hope this podcast inspires community and conversation among us. Join us in reimagining politics and economics with underrepresented voices.
One of the most effective ways to implement change in your organization is by building the next solution before you remove the previous one. People rely on the tools you create and the way you communicate. If you transition between tools too suddenly, you stoke fear.But beyond that transition, fear expresses itself in many ways. The communications role has a unique seat to see much of it, and to help others have more peace than they would have otherwise.

On this episode of the Jason Cavness Experience I talk to Amber Wright – CMO at Sahasrara Inc CavnessHR Social Media CavnessHR website: https://www.cavnessHR.com Jason's email: jasoncavness@cavnessHR.com @CavnessHR across social media @jasoncavnessHR across social media We talk about the following What is a Tetrochromat Using meditation Her summer of 2018 Pros and cons of being an entrepreneur Amber's Bio Amber helped to co-found the company Sahasrara Inc in January of 2020. We help with business development, specifically with web and software development, as well as market research. My path into business is quite interesting and I very much enjoy sharing the story. It goes into being an artist, musician and my path went through healing through depression. From a healing technique I started doing channel writing through my spirit guides. I wrote advice to make a website for my art, amberlight.org, which seemed absurd to me at the time. Then, the following year, I channel wrote a business plan for a non-profit I'm in the process of filing called Alighten, at alighten.org is our mission statement. After writing and re-reading this business plan, I was inspired to go back to school to study finance, as part of the plan is for an institute for the study of Spiritual Science and Technology, where the students are paid to learn. After the first semester back in college to be a CPA (still attending), I was seeking financial advice, and became a licensed life and health insurance agent. From this, I am able to offer a wide range of financial services such as whole life indexed policies with living benefits. Now, I consider my intuition as a leader for business growth and work with other experts in the field of business development. I love what I currently do as the marketing officer at Sahasrara, and I wish there could be a few extra days in the week so I can get more done before the weekend!

Guest Carrie Kuss, Dartmouth '96, was at first sure that she was a future veterinarian. But after a few chemistry classes and more government classes, she was equally sure she was a future attorney, if not Supreme Court justice. Being waitlisted for law schools, she decided to make sure the law would be the right path and so served as a paralegal for a few years.While in a large firm in Boston, the law partner for whom she worked decided he wanted to run a charity golf tournament. The opportunity to organize and run the tournament for charity felt much more meaningful to Carrie than the on-the-job legal education she had been getting. And it introduced her to the world of non-profit fundraising, a field she knew nothing about previously. When she ran a marathon for another charity and ended up being a key organizer along the way, she got enough experience to know this is something that felt right for her.In this episode, find out from Carrie how walking down a path is sometimes the only way to figure out the fit…on ROADS TAKEN...with Leslie Jennings Rowley. About This Episode's GuestCarrie Kuss is senior director of field fitness programs with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital where she has spent over two decades working in various programmatic and fundraising capacities.

In episode 114 of the Disruptors for Good podcast I speak with Joe Waltman, Executive Director of GiveCrypto and Product Manager at Coinbase on using crypto and blockchain technologies to deliver funds directly in the hands of the impoverished and the unbanked.GiveCrypto is a nonprofit created by Brian Armstrong, the founder of Coinbase, to distribute cryptocurrency to people living in poverty. By using crypto and blockchain technologies, the organization put funds directly in the hands of individuals living in difficult circumstances around the world.Join the world's most trusted place to buy and sell cryptocurrency. Try Coinbase here. (affiliate link)Examples we discuss on how GiveCrypto has impacted lives around the world: Direct crypto payments to individuals living in refugee camps where currencies are forbidden inside the camps Direct crypto payments to women living with domestic violence issues and no financial means to leave their abuser Helping local merchants accept crypto payments Helping impoverished individuals set up crypto wallets Delivery simple financial services to individuals left behind by traditional banking systems According to Groundswell, there is substantial evidence that unconditional cash transfers are an effective way to help people. Distributing crypto is similar to transferring other forms of money to people. The organization expects many recipients will find ways to convert the crypto into their local currency. Some may transact crypto-to-crypto as well. It may also help spark economic growth by giving access to property rights and financial services on an open network. A great deal of work needs to be done to test these hypotheses and see what it most effective.The GiveCrypto MissionThe mission is to financially empower individuals by distributing cryptocurrency to those most in need. GiveCrypto connects donors and recipients anywhere in the world. Over the past three years, they've impacted the lives of thousands of individuals and their families via direct crypto transfers.Over one billion people have a smartphone but don't have access to basic financial servicesThe organization not only identifies recipients in need and distribute funds to them - they also connect those people to a truly open financial system. All it takes is access to the internet.Crypto democratizes the philanthropic process. As a society and donors, we can send cryptocurrency directly to any recipient and they'll receive it instantly. This includes people without bank accounts and those living in places where fiat money is “broken”.Watch the how it works video.How will the fund operate?GiveCrypto.org will be an evergreen fund (or endowment) that is designed to live and grow forever. It will grow in value based on new donations and if the value of cryptocurrency continues to grow.What types of currencies will you accept?GiveCrypto.org is cryptocurrency agnostic. The organization currently accept the following currencies: BTC, BCH, ETH, LTC, XRP and ZEC.Is my donation tax deductible?Yes. Donations through the site are tax deductible through our fiscal sponsor the Pledge Group. You will need to provide your name and email (and receive a receipt) for the donation to be tax deductible. You can also donate anonymously but the donation will not be tax deductible.How do you prevent fraud?The organization uses a combination of data collection validated with backchecks, verifiable evidence and blockchain analysis to minimize and prevent fraud.Where do recipients use the funds?The organization recruits at least one vendor that accepts payment in cryptocurrency. Additionally, recipients hold the crypto and exchange it between themselves. In the future, GiveCrypto will offer cash-out options.Are you programs OFAC compliant?Yes. They've have drafted a comprehensive sanctions compliance policy and screen all of our program participants against all relevant lists.See more FAQs here.Listen to more Causeartist podcasts here.Check out:Partner with us - Learn moreImpactInvestor.io - Discover impact investors from around the world.Podcast Made with TransistorPodcast cover design Made with CanvaBuild amazing web platforms with Webflow

In this episode of the Disputers for Good podcast, I speak with Alex Stephany, the founder of Beam, on solving homelessness using crowdfunding technology at scale.Beam is a crowdfunding platform that enables new career opportunities for homeless men and women. Beam uses technology and global citizens to help fund skills training and education to homeless individuals. With the Beam platform, you can help someone start a new career and leave homelessness for good.The platform works like this. Each person on the platform is referred to Beam by an established homeless charity or their local council. They receive a dedicated support specialist - a Beam employee who supports them all the way into their new career! The support specialists conduct basic security checks to make sure the referred person is mentally and physically ready to enter full-time employment. After that they help each person develop a tailored career plan, building on their unique strengths and interests.Once approved to be on the Beam platform, we as global citizens, can choose to help fund one person's training or fund everyone equally. You can choose support once or monthly. You'll get an email introducing you to a new person you're supporting every month and learn more about their individual storyThe founder of Beam, Alex Stephany, was inspired to build Beam after getting to know a homeless man at his local Tube station in London. The man had spent decades out of work. Alex would buy him cups of coffee and pairs of socks, but could see his condition going from very bad to even worse.When the man had a heart attack, Alex asked himself: “What could we do to make a real difference to that man's life?” The answer lay in giving him the skills to support himself. Alex knew that'd cost much more than a coffee. But what if everyone chipped in?Before Beam, Alex ran the parking app, JustPark, which he grew from 2 to over 40 people and still support as a Board Advisor. At JustPark, he had his first experience with crowdfunding when he led a record-breaking equity crowdfunding round - what was the largest crowdfunding round for a startup in history.He is also the author of a book on the sharing economy called The Business of Sharing, and also advised the city of Seoul as part of the Mayor's Sharing Economy Advisory Panel.Watch his TED Talk here.Listen to more Causeartist podcasts here.Check out:Partner with us - Learn moreImpactInvestor.io - Discover impact investors from around the world.Podcast Made with TransistorPodcast cover design Made with CanvaBuild amazing web platforms with Webflow
