    Should you jump in or stay in the bleachers?
    (updated from 4.5.17)

    I want to talk about how, when, and why the leadership of your nonprofit may choose to advocate in this contentious political climate.

    As an executive director myself, I have been thinking long and hard about how to lead and represent the organization I serve when it comes to navigating advocacy and taking stances on legislative and social issues. 

    During a strategic planning session last summer, Nonprofit Network's board had determined that in order to be sustainable, we must be relevant. Therefore, we actively seek to join tables where the conversation is about helping people, organizations, and communities to think differently about their infrastructure—to think differently about their systems and their processes. If we are that good—good enough to be invited to those tables—we will be a sustainable organization.

    Our ultimate goal is to influence community solutions through our programming and services using best practices and research.

    Your organization might have a similar goal, to influence the decisions of your clients and your community using your mission.

    Last summer, this goal had felt pretty safe. Yes, it is a big, hairy, audacious goal, but safe enough. Recent events at local, state, and national levels have caused our board to revisit this word: influence. We recently checked in with each other and asked “Did we really mean it – and if we did, what now?”

    Our official diversity and inclusion statement reads as follows:
    Nonprofit Network strives to be a model of inclusion. We engage all people with dignity and respect. We believe that bringing diverse individuals together is essential to effectively address the issues that face current and prospective partners.

    But in today’s divided and often cruel political climate, the work around diversity can create division, inclusion can create exclusion, and seeking equity for all somehow means someone else loses. Tensions are high, to say the least.

    Nonprofit Network strongly believes in the practice of having policies and procedures in place before you need them. So if we know that if we are going to be relevant and influence community solutions, we first need to make some decisions about when, why, and how we decide to speak up.

    We drafted a series of questions to guide that decision and I am sharing it with you here. Share this with your board and staff so you can discuss how to customize it to fit within your organization.

    1)   Is there a need?

    • What is the scope and size of the issue? 
    • Are we advocating for those that cannot speak for themselves?
    • Are we speaking for those whose voices are not being heard?
    • Are we speaking for those that can’t “afford” to speak up?
    If the answer to the above is yes, then proceed to the next question.

    2)   Is it appropriate and relevant to the organization?

    • Does the topic fit our mission and values?
    • Is it appropriate for us to add our voice?
    • Are we opposing? Supporting? Educating?
    If the answer to the above is yes, then proceed to the next question.

    3)   What are the risks?

    • Can the organization be hurt by taking a public stance? 
    • If we can be hurt, can we sustain the risk?
    • Is any potential risk direct or indirect? (would we know if a donor stopped giving because we added our voice?)
    If the risks are minimal or can be sustained, then proceed to the next question.

    4)   How will we influence?

    • Programming, curriculum, best practices
    • Education
    • Leadership (modeling best practices, setting an example)
    • Getting involved
    • Blogging, using our social media
    • Contributing resources
    • Advocacy – taking a position and influencing those with power to take a direction
    • Ask our members/stakeholders/donors, staff, board and volunteers to act

    You might see Nonprofit Network jumping in the conversations that affect the nonprofit ecosystem. Know that when you see us at the table and hear our voice, we have run the decision through the questions above. These four questions will allow us to act with intention and proceed with a full understanding of our role and the potential results of our decision to influence.

    Remember! Advocacy is not political activity. 501(c)3 nonprofits cannot endorse political candidates or contribute to political campaigns. This rule is part of the Johnson Amendment, and it helps nonprofits maintain their integrity as nonpartisan entities. You can however, support legislative bills, mileages, and advocate for your mission.  

    Want to share this with your organization and build your own decision tree?  Email Info@nonprofnetwork.org to let us know and we'll send you an electronic copy of the four questions to share with your stakeholders. No strings attached...

    Growing up in graduate student housing on the Wayne State Campus in the 1980's, I was blessed.  I know a lot of people don't think growing up in downtown Detroit in the 80's would be a blessing, but you'd be wrong, it really was.  I had friends from around the world.  Rusbeh, a boy from Iran, shared stories of a land so different that it felt like a fairy tale.  Greta, a girl from Germany, taught me to roller-skate.  And Abdul, a teenager from Detroit, taught me that it’s what’s on the inside that matters, but that race is still relevant.  It was true then, and it is certainly true now.

    In the wake of yet another murder of an innocent black man, it’s more relevant than ever.

    Nonprofits exist to change the world.  Maybe we have different missions and we do it in different ways, but we all are here because of a vision for a better future. Part of that vision NEEDS to be Equity.  For race, gender, socio-economic, religious, abilities and disabilities.  When Nonprofit Network presents on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, one of the exercises we do is to examine peoples’ various identities and share how that has impacted their lives.  We need to stop pretending that peoples’ lived experiences are not shaped by the color of their skin.

    So what can your organization do?  Because it is not enough to pay lip service to the idea of equity without actually DOING something about it.  Here are some ideas:

    • Have your team, volunteers, board members, and partners learn about their own Implicit Biases.  They can take a free quiz here.  Then follow up with a group conversation about how those biases effect their work and some strategies to be aware of their impact on those you serve.
    • Revisit your organizational mission, vision, values, and policies and specifically look at ways that they might limit inclusion and equity. 
    • Is a commitment to diversity included in the way volunteers, board members, and staff are selected and on boarded? Are all voices welcome at the table?
    • Does your organization expect its partners to uphold its values of diversity and inclusion? 
    • Are your organizational values shared on your website and on your social media sites so that someone interested in your organization can see if your values match theirs?
    • Is your organization effective at reaching out to diverse groups?
    • Take the time to ponder how your own multiple identities show up in the work you do and interact with others.
    • Discuss how inequities in the community or unequal access to resources in the community impact your mission.

    I recognize that this is a heavy topic, even for those of us who are skin-privileged.  But I dream of a world where my friends don’t have to teach their children not to put their hands in their pockets because it might be a death sentence if the wrong person feels threatened.

    If your organization needs help with diversity, equity, and inclusion, feel free to reach out.  You can visit our Diversity, Inclusion & Equity page for free tools and updates on upcoming events. As always, we’re here to help you make the world a better, safer, more equitable place.

    Virtual Workshops vs Webinars
    (what’s the difference and how to prepare?)


    In order to answer that question I'll have you first review the definitions below...

    Definitions:
    > What is a webinar?
     Short for web-based seminar, a webinar is a brief presentation, lecture, workshop or seminar that is transmitted over the web using video conferencing software. 

    > What is a virtual workshop?
      Remote workshops are online meetings led by someone who teaches a new skill or technique to a group of participants using digital platforms and tools. The participants may either be in the same room or in separate physical spaces, but the person who leads the session is usually located elsewhere.

    Online Workshops are how NN is helping you stay impactful and connected in the time of physical distancing. 

    NN Webinars: We offer what we like to call “Live Webinars”. These fast-paced and interactive presentations will cover the chosen topic quickly, in 45 minutes to an hour. Webinars are typically a trending topic, recorded and are easily saved and watched again and again. You can find previously recorded webinars in our Online Store.

    NN Virtual WorkshopsWorkshops provide opportunities to facilitate and teach new skills, techniques and strategies to a group of participants. This requires the participants to work, think, process, create and plan. And now, in this time of Covid-19, Nonprofit Network is offering our workshops virtually using digital platforms and tools. 

    These Virtual Workshops replicate our in-person facilitation style, are engaging and requires participant dialogue. We use breakout rooms and have you participate with the facilitator via chat and and in small group conversations. You’ll also be able to ask questions and provide and receive feedback. Virtual workshops last from 2-4 hours and are best experienced when you share your camera, are in a quiet space where you don't have to be on "mute and can focus your attention on the topic. 


    For both our Webinars and our Virtual Workshops they are presented by one or more of our facilitators or in collaboration with a guest presenter. We use platforms like "Zoom" or Go To Meeting" which sometimes may require an application download. We provide you a web link, password and a copy of the presentation and any hand-outs ahead of time via email. This allows you to print the materials if you prefer, and also review them beforehand.

    It is best and most convenient to participate with a Computer, notebook, or tablet but you can also join by phone. If joining by phone, you can either load the digital “App” on your cell phone, which will allow you to see cameras and fully utilize the tools available or, while not optimum for you, you can also simply dial-in with the provided phone number. You'll announce yourself to the facilitator, listen in and be able to participate in the workshop.

    I hope you have found this helpful and all your questions have been answered, but if not I'm just an email away and happy to help!

    As our Stay at Home Order winds down, we have some decisions to make. 

    The pandemic has emphasized (didn’t reveal – we knew they were there all along) disparities, inequities and discrepancies.  Need proof? Review the articles cited below;

    We are hearing that we won’t return to normal. I am totally OK with that and am excited that we have an opportunity to work toward a new, improved better normal.  And I want all of us to really focus on what we choose to be our new normal. 

    In an article entitled "For a More Equitable America, Understand Race and Racism as Actions We Do and Can Undo", the authors say this: "Americans have an opportunity to recognize and understand race in ways they never have before, ways that will help us transform and rebuild American society to be stronger and fairer to all."

    As we re-create and fix our broken systems, every nonprofit must begin and/or strengthen the ways we are addressing social inequities, and this work must become part of our mission and be included in everything we do.

    This will be hard work and will require us to fully address our own biases and how biases are baked into our systems.

    The article asks us to reflect on some very difficult questions:

    • Have I accepted racial inequality in the issues I work on or among the social change efforts that I am involved in?
    • Do people recognize racial disparities in the space I work in?
    • How are disparities being explained, and why are some explanations favored in place of others? In what ways are the organizations, institutions, or systems that I participate in set up to create advantages for people in some groups relative to others?
    • What role have I or my organization played in maintaining these unequal institutions or systems? What can I do to change them? 
    • How am I part of the problem, and how can I be part of the solution?

    Nonprofit Network can help and provide everything from equity assessments of your policies, strategic plans around systems, tools, workshops and samples.  Reach out to us and we can get you started.

    It’s time to breathe

    Some of us have been holding our breath for so long we are at risk of becoming light headed.  Breathe. Because it’s time to get “back” to work.

    We all agree we are in uncharted waters.  Never before have we experienced such a seismic shift in our communities, economy, work, life style and habits.  Soon we will be asked to reemerge from our homes and find a new normal, a new way of life and a new way to work. 

    What will be the same – if anything – and how much will have changed? And what are things that will continue to change?

    Many experts have assessed the landscape, like The Nonprofit Finance Fund, and SeaChange Capital Partners who have conducted a survey which resulted in some hard truths. Sixty percent of nonprofits reported they were experiencing "destabilizing conditions that threaten long-term financial stability."

    NFF COVID-19 Survey and COVID-19 could mean extinction for many charities

    Many of us will not survive unless we take very aggressive and proactive measures to protect our futures.  And even then, this virus will take very healthy, young and vibrant nonprofits all too soon. 


    OK, breathe. So, what are these measures?

    We need to ask ourselves some very hard questions:

    • What will our community need from me? How have their needs changed?
    • What is our contingency plan?
    • Do we dramatically conserve our resources and shrink to have something we can regrow? Run your numbers:  Many ED’s are planning on taking reduced pay, permanent layoffs and closing less critical programs.
    • Do we dramatically grow?  Do you merge with others to reduce administrative costs, take on programs to serve those impacted by these economic conditions?
    • Who should we be partnering with? How can I work to improve this relationship and how can I be the best partner I can be? Who are my partners with risky funding streams that might not be able to maintain our agreements? Are we stronger together?
    • What condition are my donors and funders in?  Are these funding sources in jeopardy of shrinking or are there opportunities to strengthen this partnership? If I don’t know – how would I find out?
    • Strategies here: Prepare Now To Rebuild Your Program and 8 Steps To Prepare For The COVID-19 Reboot

    You can also find more ideas and strategies here: COVID-19 Coverage: Financial Sustainability and In Times Of Crisis, Don't Create Your Own 

    Reach out to your peers and to us, for support.  We can help you brainstorm, strategize and ensure that you have turned over every leaf and rock. We can help you with the heavy lifting.

    Now, breathe.

    Self Care Activities You Can Do In 10 Minutes or Less


    1.       Pet your dog or cat.  As you do so, focus on the softness of their fur, and the repetitive motions.  If you don’t have a pet, use a fluffy pillow, blanket or sweater!

    2.       Do a few Affirmations.  Positive self-statements can bring more confident self-talk into your day and they force you to say nice things to yourself where you usually wouldn’t.  There are many resources online, choose a statement each day and take 5 minutes to say it out loud to yourself at least 10 times.  Really focus on the statement, don’t argue with yourself against it!

    3.       Accept a compliment.  While not something you can plan, accepting compliments can go a long way in improving your self-esteem.  Think about it.  Every time you reject a compliment, you are filling your head with excuses and negative self-talk.  Instead, when someone compliments you, say thank you and SMILE!

    4.       10 Deep Breaths.  Breathe. How often are we really aware of our breathing (other than when the respiratory virus is going around, or it’s allergy season…). Instead, sit and focus on your breathing.  Ten deep, slow breaths can calm you, slow your heart rate, and bring you to a resting state.

    5.       Stretch.  Stand up and lift your arms over your head, then touch your toes (if you can!).  Stand back up slowly, and let your head roll from side to side gently and slowly. 

    6.       Message a loved one.  We get so wrapped up in work, routine, and all the stress in our lives that it can be easy to forget our loved ones.  Send a text to a friend or family member and let them know you’re thinking about them.

    7.       Watch a funny YouTube clip.  Laughter is great medicine for stress.  Personally, I love watching dogs do ridiculous things, but there are lots of blooper reels out there, too!

    8.       Make a cup of herbal tea.  This not only makes you step away from the computer a few minutes, but depending on the tea you choose, it can also be a natural mood booster.

    9.       Try zentangles.  Zentangles is the creation of art through repetitive patterns.  It can be relaxing and improve focus and concentration. 

    10.   Talk a walk.  Outside, inside, or even in place.  The point is to get up, get the blood moving, and feel better.

    I need you to be normal.  I’m serious.  Or at least act normal.  Our employees, boards, community, peers, and clients are watching us.  And it is so critical for us to act settled – and quickly normalize – so that we can continue serving our missions. 

    You have been working hard towards an organization that can adapt, change and accommodate the ever-changing needs of the community you serve. Now its time to put that hard work to into action.

    As you have - we moved all of our offices into home offices. We had to rethink every routine (and perfect in every way) procedures – like depositing a check, approving an invoice, presenting a workshop, staying connected with each other, earning revenue, and serving people!  It was hard – but we now have a new system in place and a system to evaluate if its working.  Are these new systems perfect – not yet. But these new systems are now our "normal". 

    We added a COVID-19 webpage and scheduled open phone calls.  Every day there is a new opportunity for you to join a conversation to process out all of this new information and determine what to do with it. We've had so many people join and we're so appreciative of the opportunity to connect with everyone. We will continue to host these conversations and we hope you will join us to share your new normal!

    Image result for crisis can be a unique opportunity to change your path

    On a positive note, I have been enjoying the responses from the entertainment community – the “free” streaming performances from John Legend on his Instagram account, the free operas and Broadway plays streaming on demand, the YMCA is streaming exercise classes online and all of the opportunities to be read to.  We need to follow suit. Is this ideal – nope. But does it offer some sense of normalcy – yes! Let’s learn from these examples and find new ways to connect, deliver and serve.

    *Updated from March 2020 but this is good info!

    It's cold season again and it may seem like everyone around us is sick, and we're still dealing with COVID-19 concerns. The headlines say its just going to continue to be an issue for awhile.  So let’s stay on top of it!

    Here is what Nonprofit Network is still doing to help keep employees – and you – from getting sick.

    First – we have a generous PTO plan and policy and a culture that allows staff to stay home when they are sick. We also have a work from home policy. For an example see our Policy & Agreement

    We disinfect our offices daily – we wipe down our desks, shared tables, computer keyboards, mouses, desk phones, cell phones, light switches, pens, and door knobs (interior & exterior).  We also work from home one day, while someone else works from the office and rotate that schedule.

    For our workshops, we have re-scheduled all events to an online platform. We use Zoom, Go To Meeting, Face Time, Skype, Google Hangouts, Microsoft Office Teams and What's App to name a few.

    For smaller workshops if you choose to be in person (10 participants or less)  you should arrive early, wear a mask, have extra masks, have tissues on hand, disinfect and wipe down tables, pens, shared computer equipment, door knobs and keep sanitizer and disinfectant wipes available for your guests.  Then again wipe down these spaces before you leave and wash your hands often!

    It has always been recommended that you wash your hands regularly, for at least 20 seconds. While hand sanitizer kills the germs, they remain upon your hands until they are washed away with plenty of soap and warm water. Keep tissues and wipes with you.  Wear a mask. Cover your cough, don't touch your face, wipe down shopping cart handles and avoid touching public doors with your hands (use elbows when you can). Avoid sick people, and if you are sick or have respiratory symptoms, stay home. Access online services or call over the phone when you can. Avoid close contact and try and maintain a 6 foot perimeter from others. Avoid handshakes, try a elbow-bump, or a big warm smile instead.

    Now, let’s talk about the populations you serve or your employees that might need additional help during these times.
    Remember that vulnerable populations will experience this crisis disproportionately.  Those who live in or on the verge of poverty will not be able to accommodate a decrease in pay, a decrease in hours, or an increase in expenses.  We know that some items are in short supply at the grocery store or now much more expensive.  Consider how you might help in these circumstances. 

    Were you aware that many children receive breakfast and lunch at school. If elementary, middle and high schools close, many children will go without regular meals.  Our amazing schools, food pantries and social services generously stepped up their support to accommodate these families.  

    Wondering how are communities are doing? NN is hosting a "Checking Blind Spots" Leadership and Support Staff monthly call at no cost.

    We'll discuss: 

    • The impacts of the pandemic on the nonprofit sector
    • Share resources and information
    • Explore trends and emerging issues

    There is a consistent buzz about “equity” and “racial equity” in the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors and among cross-sector collective impact efforts. This is a good thing, and our nation’s persistent and rising racial and economic disparities demand it. 

    Many groups are applying an “equity lens” to look outward at social problems and solutions, dis-aggregating data and seeking to differentiate opportunities and services to reduce imbalances.  

    But our organizations and collective efforts must begin by looking inward, using an “equity mirror” to examine our own composition, culture, and policies that reinforce and perpetuate these societal disparities.

    To do equity, we must also be equity.

    We need to move beyond conversation to meaningful action. Take a look at our Diversity page and take advantage of the Tools made available to you. Is your organization already implementing any of the suggested steps?

    In order to provide better direction and an "equity lens" we mentioned earlier, you should not miss out on these workshop opportunities:  

    Cross-Cultural Conversations
    ~ Advancing Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Within Your Organization

    Bridges Out of Poverty Community Session

    Need to have a conversation about how to make better progress?  Reach out and we can make a plan together.

    Hopefully everyone knows that if they have a job, they should also have a position description.  But there are some people out there who don’t know that volunteers need them, too.  And having "position descriptions" for your volunteers will make recruiting them a LOT easier!

    Why? Well, there are several reasons.

    How many times have you been asked to do something as a volunteer, but the request was vague, or open-ended.  Maybe you agreed to it, maybe you didn’t, but regardless, you had no real idea what you were being asked to do?

    I remember my first time volunteering.  It was in high school.  Our high school required we perform a certain number of community service hours to graduate.  I loved animals (still do!) and so I volunteered to groom dogs at the local shelter.  I thought I’d be brushing them so that they’d look better for potential adopters.  NOPE!  My main job was to wash the matted feces out of dogs in the holding pens they had there for animal abuse cases. 

    I thought I would get to have some fun, interact with people looking for a pet, and play with the dogs.  I did not know I would spend my time getting soaking wet, covered in hair and "other stuff", and bathing dogs that didn’t like being touched, never-mind bathed. And all this took place in the isolated cold back part of the shelter. Fun way to spend a Saturday, right?  Not to mention the attachments I formed with these neglected animals, only to have them, more often than not, returned to their same situations, but at least a lot cleaner.

    Had I known all this going in, I would have probably passed on the opportunity. 

    Now, you may be thinking it smart not to tell people about the unpleasant parts of their volunteer commitment, because then they’re more likely to agree to volunteer.  But what does it get you to have an unhappy volunteer who then tells other people that they’re unhappy volunteering for you? Sure, even bad publicity is still publicity, but it isn’t the kind a nonprofit wants!

    Try and remember, different people have different things they consider unpleasant.  So while I wasn't one to prefer being alone with a dog giving it a bath, I maybe would have preferred cleaning kennels where I could talk to people.  Then their are people who would prefer only paperwork, and then the people who very much like talking on the phone. 

    Putting the lists of tasks you need your volunteers to do in a position description along with a possible time-frame to be assigned to those tasks would mean much better recruitment.  People can then make an informed decision, know what they are agreeing to, and hopefully give you positive GOOD publicity out of it.  A happy volunteer, after all, is one of your absolute best recruitment tools!

    So, spend some time.  Write those position descriptions.  Carry them with you and share them widely.  You’ll be glad you did.
