Nonprofit Everything - Episode 144 - Who Gets the Credit Card Points?

Who Gets the Credit Card Points?

It’s podcast day! Why on earth would an organization use the longer, more expensive, more complicated, more time consuming Form 1023 to form a new nonprofit organization when the 1023-EZ is available? We have a few thoughts. Also this week, Stacey has some great tips to help you fundraise for a vehicle, and Andy wants you to re-think credit cards that earn points (probably a hard sell.) Thanks for joining us, and don’t forget to rate the podcast on your provider of choice and send us questions to!

Episode 136: Should we accept dirty money?

Should We Accept Dirty Money?

Thanks for joining us for another episode of Nonprofit Everything! We’ve got just two questions, but one of them is *significant*. This week, Stacey and Andy try to discuss the impact of accepting donations from ethically challenging sources. It’s a rough topic, and we would love to get your opinions on it, too! Also, Andy tackles another perpetual complaint: “Omigosh-this-audit-is-so-expensive-and-time-consuming-why-do-we-have-to-do-it-again-and-again-every-year?!?” Five points to Ravenclaw for guessing Andy’s answer.

Applying for two grants for the same program?

It’s the Nonprofit Everything Podcast again! This week, we hear from a five-year-old nonprofit that is just realizing they may have bitten off more than they could chew! Sound familiar? Also, what happens when we completely distrust the previous finance person’s numbers? Andy and Stacey have some thoughts. And finally, are we allowed to apply for multiple grants to cover the exact same program? (Quick, can you answer this one faster than we can?)

Fundraising from Friends and Family

Fundraising from Friends and Family

Hi! It’s the Nonprofit Everything Podcast calling! This week, Stacey has some thoughts about why your friends might be ghosting you when you’re asking them for a contribution. Is your finance committee asking inappropriate questions? Andy can help. And finally, how quickly should you fire someone who engages in unethical behavior at your nonprofit? We’ve definitely got ideas on that. Join us this week, and don’t forget to send us your nonprofit questions for next week!
