Percentage of Income Spent on Mission - Part 2
In my last post, I questioned the validity of using ‘percent of income spent on mission’ as a valuable measurement of an organization’s effectiveness. This is an easily manipulated number. If the organization is based in dishonesty (we all know they exist), they’ll have no hesitation with shifting numbers around to come in at a threshold to avoid scrutiny. 
 


Is Percentage of Income Spent on Mission a Viable Measurement?

 

You may have read that Oregon passed a law in June (House Bill 2060) imposing restrictions on nonprofits spending less than 30% of their annual gross income on their charitable mission. This law would remove the tax exemption on disqualified donations and would eliminate any property tax exemptions the organization receives in Oregon, in addition to eliminating other subsidies. Doesn’t that sound great? Let’s punish those darn low percentage performers!

 


Not so fast…things are not always as they seem.

What My Eight Year Old Reminded Me About Grant Writing

…or How We Went From Tears to a Completed Project in 30 Minutes

 

My eight year old son has reached the point in school where he’s expected to do some writing beyond simple question and answer sentences. Yesterday, he was supposed to write his own 4-8 line rhythmic and rhyming chant – think “Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear turn around, Teddy Bear Teddy Bear touch the ground”. I checked in with him to make sure he understood rhythm and rhyme. He did, so I left him on his own to work on his project. He focuses too much on seeking my approval when I’m sitting next to him, so I have to go about my business and encourage him from afar.

 

 

What does this have to do with grant writing anyway? Keep reading!

 



Do Your Donors Have to Chase You Down?

I was talking with a retired friend the other day and he mentioned that he reached out to a local organization that he had donated to in the past. He hadn’t heard from them for a couple years, so he contacted them to see if they needed anything. They told him they would let him know and that was the end of the conversation.



Beyond the Thank You - Seven Great Ways to Recognize Your Funders

We’ve written before about the importance of promptly thanking your funders when you receive a grant or sponsorship. A truly exceptional nonprofit also recognizes that there are more ways to recognize their investment in your organization. This extra effort helps build and strengthen an ongoing relationship and it doesn’t take much time - we know you’re busy!



What To Do With Thrift Store Overflow

I know a lot of organizations we work with run thrift stores to supplement their programs.  And more than a few have been overwhelmed with donations of old clothes and 'stuff', some to the point of having to rent storage containers for the overflow while they sort through it all.



How Do You Deal With a Bullying Board Member?

Bullies aren’t just in our schools and workplaces. I’m in the process of exiting board service from a theater arts organization with an artistic director who is a bully. I was asked to be on the board, was met with open arms, and I had high hopes for contributing to the development of a promising and popular organization. My enthusiasm was short-lived.



My Best Grant Writing Tip

I hate to tell you this but my best tip has almost nothing to do with actually writing a grant proposal.
