Just Say No... to Donations?

by Kevin Peters

Recently, New York’s Guggenheim Museum and London’s National Portrait Gallery and Tate group of galleries all declared that they would no longer be accepting charitable gifts from the Sackler family, some of who are owners of Purdue Pharma, which makes the opioid OxyContin. Other well-known organizations are being pressured to follow suit. While most organizations won’t have donors who are being castigated in the national news, similar situations can happen on a more local level. Let’s imagine that you live in The Simpsons’ fictional hamlet of Springfield, where the most well-known businessman is C. Montgomery Burns, owner of the local nuclear facility. While he has been known to “release the hounds” on anyone coming to his door to ask for a donation, he seems to have taken a liking to your charity. How will that play in the local gossip mill? Should you accept his charitable offer?

Branding Your Application (NEW)

Thursday, June 6, 2019

Does your brand belong in your grant application? How does having a clear brand save you time and increase your chances of being awarded a grant? How hard is it to create a clear brand? Branding is your shortcut—it’s the words, phrases, and images that give people instant recognition of who you are. While ‘brand’ might seem like a word that only applies to corporations, your nonprofit has one, whether you think it does or not. In this interactive webinar, Ara G. Beal of Storybook Foundry will share what you need to know about nonprofit branding and grantwriting. Additionally, she’ll guide you through two of the Storybook Foundry’s tools to clarify and unify your brand. You’ll identify words to avoid and words to use in all of your communications and learn how to compile your most compelling testimonials.


Engaging Women as Donors

A recent series of reports put out by the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy illustrates the essential role that women play when it comes to donating to charitable causes. How can you tap into this research to reach out to female donors? On July 8 and 9 in Indianapolis, IN, the Lilly School is offering the Engaging Women as Donors course, aimed at teaching participants how to build and sustain powerful relationships with women donors.

GrantStation 20th Anniversary

Those Early, Exciting (and Painful) Years

Cynthia Adams continues her story, which will resonate with many of you. “There is a challenge that all entrepreneurs have to address when starting a new business. It’s not what you are probably thinking—finding the money for a startup (although that is also somewhat daunting). The real challenge is defining who you want to be as a company, who you will serve, and how you will deliver that product or service. For an entrepreneur to be truly successful you have to feel passionate about what you do.”
