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.


Seven Tips for Cleaning Up Your Grant Writing

I’ve always thought of writing like painting a picture, whether writing a fun creative story, an article for the local newspaper, or a grant application. These seven basic tips are core ideas that I’ve relied on for years, no matter what I’m working on. They help me start painting and cleaning up my written picture. Hopefully they’ll help you too!




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.
