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.

Empty the trash after the staff potluck or empty the bugs out of the light fixture?

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.

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.

Wine on One- Social Media and Work-Life Integration

July 11, 2017

Friending volunteers... at mentioning board members on Twitter... LinkingIn with staff... attending networking events three evenings a week... dinner with a colleague from another organization. 

Forget work-life balance, for those of us that live the nonprofit life, work-life integration is where we're trending.    

How do you use your social media presence in a way that promotes your personal brand, enhances your organization, and lets your authentic voice be heard to those who you want to hear it? How much social should be in your networking?  It's a complicated issue, so Marjorie and Natalie grabbed a bottle of wine to figure out some answers.

Wine on One- Partnering with Businesses to Raise Funds

July 6, 2017

What makes a good nonprofit/corporate partnership? How do you navigate around a company's needs and your nonprofit's needs? How do you get the most bang for your buck when it comes to days a company will give a part of their sales to your mission... and is it even about the money? 

Marjorie and Natalie grab a bottle of wine to discuss the fundraisers that work for some and not for other and dig into what really works for a long term partnership.
