 Nonprofitnewsfeed.com  summary of the week.    This Giving Tuesday Eve, Beware of Scams! On this day before Giving Tuesday, consumers are being asked to be on the lookout for scams. The Better Business Bureau has published a guide to making informed decisions about donating. Nonprofits should make this process easy for prospective donors by being transparent, proving credibility, and making donation gateways safe, secure, and easy to navigate. If your organization has a seal of approval for a major charity rating organization, making that easy to ascertain can be a big step towards making donors feel secure about donating to your cause. Read more ➝   Supply Chain Disrupting Toy Donations Going Into Holiday Rush In Minnesota, global supply chain issues are disrupting the delivery and donation of toys this holiday season, according to the Star Tribune. The pandemic economy has spurred vulnerabilities in the supply of toys and other essential goods, while pushing the price of staple food items like meat sky high. PRISM, a nonprofit in the Twin Cities, is preparing for delivery issues by beginning their toy drive early, as is the local chapter of the Salvation Army. Due to increased shipping costs and labor shortages, amid surging demand, nonprofits are bracing for what will be another whirlwind end-of-year for nonprofits that provide physical goods to folks this holiday season.

Today Liz Scott shares the emotional and mental strategies behind creating a movement and focusing on inspirational and clear communication. Listen in as Laura and Lis discuss the origin of Alex's Lemonade Stand, how Liz navigates the line between inspirational and scientific communication, and the importance of self-care when leading and inspiring others over time. Liz Scott is the Co-Executive Director of Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, but she is most proud of her title of "Mom" to three sons, Patrick, Eddie, and Joey, and daughter Alex. ALSF emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of Liz's daughter, Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for other children with cancer. In her lifetime, Alex would raise over $1 million before she passed away in 2004 at the age of 8. Since then, Liz and her husband Jay have worked alongside thousands of supporters across the country to carry on her legacy of hope. To date, ALSF has raised more than $200 million toward fulfilling Alex's dream of finding a cure, having funded over 1,000 pediatric cancer research projects and assisted more than 10,000 families through their national support programs. Liz holds a BA in psychology from The University of Connecticut and honorary doctorates from Drexel University, Villanova University and Baylor School of Medicine. In addition to her work with Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, she also serves on the Board of Directors for The Cancer Couch Foundation.   You can connect with Liz via the website: https://www.alexslemonade.org/   To learn more about Dr. Laura Sicola and how mastering influence can impact your success go to https://www.speakingtoinfluence.com/quickstart and download the quick start guide for mastering the three C's of influence.   You can connect with Laura in the following ways: LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/drlaurasicola LinkedIn Business Page: https://www.linkedin.com/company/vocal-impact-productions/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWri2F_hhGQpMcD97DctJwA Facebook: Vocal Impact Productions Twitter: @Laura Sicola  Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/vocalimpactproductions Instagram: @VocalImpactProductions See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Take the Quiz: Do you have what it takes to be a grant writer? Special Holiday Note: Support a Ministry-Based Business AND a Nonprofit Back in Episode 41, I introduced you to the talented Kari Bartkus of Love Does That. She shared her thought process behind starting a ministry-based business instead of a nonprofit.    This Thanksgiving, instead of running a Black Friday sale, Kari is hosting more of a Black Friday giveback. She's donating a portion of all November sales to a local nonprofit in her community. Check out her beautiful encouraging resources at lovedoesthat.org. What Is the Seasonality of Grants? Most new grant writers and nonprofits don't realize that grants are typically seasonal. I sure didn't know that until I got into it! Fortunately my mentor explained this to me early on. Grant application deadlines tend to be especially busy early in the year throughout the spring season. This is particularly true for federal grants, although foundations can be the same way.   Because of that, "grant season" (as it's known in professional circles) can get pretty hectic. If you aren't prepared and learn to pace yourself, you can end up exhausted and burned out.  How Do I Prepare for Grant Season? The fall and winter seasons are the perfect time of year to be learning, planning, and offering other types of services to bring in a consistent income. As you're thinking through your ideal situation, consider: What is your ideal workload? What can you be learning and planning this time of year? (HINT: It's a perfect time to learn grant writing and map out your plan for next year!) How can you work ahead and prepare for grant season? How Do We Start? This is exactly what I help my clients with every day. I want you to be a good steward of your money, and I want to help you create a solid future to carry out your nonprofit vision. Let's develop a smart, strategic approach to your nonprofit or freelance grant writing.

Supervision is one of those things in our sector that we kind of fall into. It is often overlooked in our sector but the quality of supervision is important because it affects productivity, morale, work quality, team interaction, conflict, and the overall culture of the organization.In today's episode, Rita Sever, an expert in human resources, organizational psychology, and nonprofit systems, talks about how to lead, manage people, and create a culture that is aligned with our organization's anti-oppression work and values. Myths that Rita wants us to walk away from:Nonprofit workers don't need supervision. Nonprofit organizations are full of kind, caring, and committed people, but that doesn't mean they don't need to be supervised. Even when people are extremely high functioning, they need a supervisor's tender touch and a culture that will encourage them along the way and help them succeed.Power and privilege don't exist in nonprofit supervision. Power and privilege have an impact on supervisory relationships. To work from an anti-oppression perspective, supervisors must be prepared for self-awareness – knowing their own background, norms, and hidden rules, and bringing that awareness to real conversations about how it affects their supervision, relationships, and treatment of others.Rita's JOIN framework on giving feedback as a supervisorJ - Join your supervisees before you give them feedback.  You want to make sure you remember you're on the same side. O - Observation and objective statement of what actually happened.I - Impact. What was the impact of that objective observation? How did it impact the person, the team, the work? N - What needs to be different. And that can be simply, let's talk more about how you could have handled that interaction.Favorite Quotes from Today's EpisodePost your favorite quote on social media to share with us!“I think the pitfall is that we are doing so much or so committed to our missions that we sort of take it for granted that everything will work out in terms of people because people are there to support the mission.
