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- Celebrating Holidays in the Nonprofit Office

October 3, 2017

Yep, it's that time of year. Now that it's officially ok to put a pumpkin spice shot of rum in your pumpkin spice latte, it's also time to plan the office holiday party, figure out year end donor stewardship, send the holiday card, and figure out who has to work the week between Christmas and New Years. 

Do you make that holiday card a donor ask? Can the homeless shelter close on Christmas? Do you let your Jewish staff members take off their holidays instead of the Christian holidays listed in your employee manual?  

Marjorie and Natalie grab a bottle of wine and tackle all of your impending holiday problems for you. 

For more on holidays, back at What's All this Talk about Unlimited PTO?, Legit Thanks, and Gift Giving in the Nonprofit Office.

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.

Owner of BEAST Craft BBQ Co. in Belleville, IL, David Sandusky had to respond to Angel and all other restaurant owners who don't think that giving is part of a smart business plan.  

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
