Wine on One- It’s the Little Things

November 28, 2017

Sometimes it seems like things at nonprofits happen just like magic.  The trash gets taken out, the towels get cleaned, gift bags are just taken care of, the list goes on. 

Today, Marjorie and Natalie give a BIG thank you to the unsung heros in nonprofit life who take care of the little things that really make a difference in a nonprofit culture.  From the volunteer that donates a suitcase for all the event materials to the staff member who always makes sure the tea cabinet is stocked, we see you and we thank you.

Wine on One- Repping the Brand

October 31, 2017

When was the last time a car cut you off, only for you to realize it was wrapped in your favorite charity's logo.  Or you witnessed someone being rude to a store employee while wearing (gulp) the tee shirt from YOUR fundraiser? 

There's a lot to think about when it comes to nonprofit branding and not all of it is under our control... especially if you give out a lot of swag.  

Marjorie and Natalie grabbed some wine to talk about the ramifications of boarish employees on social media, rude donors in the community, and bad drivers in your organization's cars and what you can do to protect your brand from them.

Debunking the Myth- Whose Responsibility is it to Give Back to the Community with David Sandusky of BEAST Craft BBQ Co.

April 4, 2017

You probably read the article from the Charleston City Paper by Angel Postell entitled Constantly Asking Restaurants to Give Freebies to Charities has Got to Stop.

David shared his strategy and motivation for giving to the community and what nonprofits can do to increase their chances of a gift... but not his recipe for the fry sauce that Marjorie can't get enough of.  

You can show your support for this true community supporter by going to BEAST Craft BBQ Co. at 20 S Belt W, Belleville, IL 62220, going to their website at http://www.beastcraftbbq.com/  or calling 618-257-9000 or checking them out on Facebook
