Not My Fault!

One of our vehicles got stolen – how do we tell our donors? Stacey has an idea. This week we tackle the classic question “Do pledges count against our fundraising budget?” Stacey and Andy have differing views on the importance of dressing for a job interview (btw, Andy’s probably wrong), and we offer the 2019 version of silent auction dos and don’ts!

Promote All the Volunteer Coordinators

Ah, the double-edged sword of government grants. This week, Andy remembers he has to pay his car insurance, we talk about how to assemble a cash flow projection, Stacey gives some great tips on how to get silent auction items, and we find out whether or not you can put a slow-moving organization’s 501(c)3 on pause. Also, we tackle the ever thorny problem of just where to stick the Volunteer Department.
