The February Nonprofit Blog Carnival generated some interesting comments but not many blog posts. The call for posts was for creative ways to celebrate you cause.
We seem to be a creative bunch...Many people said they loved this topic. But there weren't any blog post submitted.
In looking around, I did find that the most creative time for nonprofits seems to be around anniversaries. Here are some posts on that and one on a surprising tweak that can lead to celebrating your cause:
- In a post on Kivi Leroux Miller's blog, Carol Goglia of Communities Foundation of Texas shares how her group celebrated their 60th anniversary, complete with a calendar of events! Check it out at Celebrating Your Nonprofit’s Milestone Anniversary. (I love how they renamed the "Mayors Panel"!)
- Another post on nonprofit anniversaries comes from Rick Schwartz. Like Kivi, he's not big on anniversaries. But he has seen one done very well by Community Foundation of Southeastern Connecticut (CFSECT). You can read the 9 things that made this successful at: It’s your anniversary. Who cares?
(Hardly anyone, but here are 9 ways to make it matter.)
- And I blogged about how I stumbled across a surprising tweak to delighting your donors while purchasing a Love146 necklace! You'll love how simple this is!
How are you celebrating your cause?
Your organization is changing the world in some way every single day. How are you celebrating that? Let us know in the comments!
