That’s a Cooper’s Hawk

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Blessed Solstice and Happy New Year! Do you know what Stacey and Andy want for Christmas? More questions from listeners! This week, we make a former board chair feel terrible, help the ED of a small nonprofit get ahead of the game, and talk about whether or not a nonprofit should revise their budget in the middle of the year. Thanks for joining us in 2019, and we’re looking forward to your questions in 2020!

Galas for Salaries

Not all questions are happy ones: this week, we find out how to deal with donations when you’re closing a regional office. But on a happier note, Stacey has ideas on how to write grants that pay for salaries and Andy gives you audit prep tips. We discuss whether or not the ED and Board Chair can be the same person, as well as the technical difference between a mission and a vision.
