Saw this on Beth Kanter’s blog post Generation Generosity. Whether we’re in a for-profit business or a not-for profit organization, it’s far to easy to focus on scarcity. I think slides like these help us re-center on abundance.
In the same post, Beth pulls out notes from a report by Trendwatching. While written for businesses, it’s great reading, and a good reminder for nonprofits about how our cultural trends seem to be shifting. Here’s a quote about using online tools I liked from what she pulled out:
Don’t think this a passing phenomenon: younger generations practically live online, while over the last dozen or so years, virtually every prediction of how the web would infiltrate the ‘offline’ world has proven too conservative. As our favorite online guru, Kevin Kelly, rightly stated a few years ago: ‘online culture is the culture’.
Another great reason to be getting proficient at having a highly engaged virtual side to your nonprofit. Beth’s Blog can be a great help on that journey!
