“There’s a cost to the long hours and high stress and high change environment, especially without support.” @jessamynlau joins #SSIRInstitute to discuss how #nonprofits and funders can work together to build healthy, thriving organizations that support staff well-being.
@jessamynlau “If #wellbeing has been an issue for such a long time, what has been stopping us from addressing it?” @jessamynlau suggests #nonprofits and #foundations need to build trust in order to address double standards and the melding of power and money. #SSIRInstitute
@jessamynlau “What kind of support for your staff would align with your organizational values?” At #SSIRInstitute, @jessamynlau helps nonprofit leaders map out a strategy for boosting #wellbeing. Read about how funders can support these efforts:…

(Thread 1/4): With @Varneyco on @FoxBusiness - This political hit job against @POTUS45 is the kind of third world nonsense we see in countries like #Pakistan where former presidents are taken down using petty offenses. Well beneath the dignity of New York prosecutorial offices.
(2/4): #Arizona's voting limits do not violate the voting rights act nor do they hurt minorities. Ballot harvesting hurts every #American equally. The 9th circuit got this one wrong. I am thrilled to see this victory for #Election integrity.
(3/4): #Florida's social media law was struck down in part because of vague language. I found the exceptions for Florida based companies like @Disney and @comcast to be a little dubious. With some more work and wordsmithing this could become a great law.

A thread on #Nonprofits and the #SocialMedia platforms like #TikTok #instagram #Twitter #Facebook etc. 1/6
Getting attention from existing or prospective #nonprofit donors/volunteers on any mainstream Social Media platforms is identical. Sure, there are billions of daily actives. However, the sheer volume of user-generated content also generates enormous digital noise. 2/6
It’s 1000x more challenging than getting the attention of people in a busy marketplace; in addition to the countless storefronts, the ad banners, and the hustling salespersons, people have sensory distractions from the innumerable pictures and videos all around them. 3/6

Did some prep for a workshop and upcoming talks around benchmarks and #nonprofit #email #fundraising in particular. Here's some of what I found.... this thread is for you #fundraisingtwitter... 1/
Online giving was up 21% in 2020 according to @blackbaud's Charitable Giving Report (…) and broke through to be 13% of all giving 2/
Remember that % from online isn't a great way to measure the impact of digital. If a donor gets an email, sells stock w/ @Wealthsimple, moves it into their DAF w/ @VC_Giving & wires it to your bank this 'digital only' experience inspired by your email won't be 'online' 3/

Dear #MarketingTwitter Colleagues,

The data-driven argument for continued growth in #digital activity and online behavior is flimsy and needs to be scrutinized. (👀@eMarketer & @Merkle)

Let us tell you why:
At the @Merkle #DigitalMarketing event today, we posed this question:

How probable is a reversal in digital activity totals in 2021 Q3&4? How confident can we be in projections for digital behavior in the post-pandemic period if data is based exceptional pandemic-era behavior?
Appreciate @Merkle VP Ryan Gibson’s bottom-line answer:

Time for a thread about the Blackbaud breach mess. The lessons here are for ALL #nonprofits, not just clients of Blackbaud.

But we'll start with this:
If I was a #charity client of Blackbaud, I'd be pissed.
2) Blackbaud had a security breach. Someone hacked into their system and spent time there from February until May. Blackbaud paid the hacker's ransom price and they had reassurances from the hacker that no personal data was lifted from the system. (Sure, if you believe a hacker.)
3) However, Blackbaud 😡 didn't tell its #nonprofit clients about the breach until JULY 😡 and only because it was about to become public. Their emails to NPOs revealing the news were impersonal, full of legalese and with almost no apology.…

#HeroesAct2 — LiveTweeting Legislation

Like many #smallbiz attorneys and advocates, I’m spending most of tonight and tomorrow reading over the Democrats newly-released #COVID19 #stimulus package. As I review, I’ll share some insights and discoveries. Stay tuned!
Congress proposes three #setasides for #PPP funding:

(1) at least 10% for #smallbiz with fewer than 10 employees OR for certain loans made to biz in low- and mod-income areas

(2) < 30% for nonprofits, housing coops, and hotels/restaurants

(3) < 50% for supplemental PPP loans.
Also similarly reserves the lesser of 25% or $15B of the unused #PPP loans appropriations for loans by Community Financial Institutions.

Wow. Yeah, not sure their investors are going to like this. Excerpt: "A boycott of advertisers on social media is gaining momentum, and Facebook is the primary target."…
If you're following the Facebook boycott, you may already know @NAACP, @ADL & others joined together to launch the #StopHateforProfit campaign. So far, @patagonia, @REI, @thenorthface and others have joined the boycott.
My firm helps a lot of nonprofits and small business owners build digital fundraising campaigns on Facebook, Google, and other platforms.

Just doing a little late night perusing of INGO's statements of solidarity with the Black community from this week... #DevCommsNerd

While some mentioned how important diversity was, NOT ONE mentioned starting where they are and changing their own governance and leadership. /1
Not the biggies like @WorldVisionUSA, @CARE, @CatholicRelief, @SavetheChildren. Not the "cool" ones like @charitywater or @PIH or @Heifer or @Ashoka or @OxfamAmerica. Not the humanitarian ones like @mercycorps or @RESCUEorg or @MSF_USA. Not @PlanUSA. Not @PactWorld. Not @fhi360.
When it comes to anti-Black racism work and #globaldev or #socialgood work, we have to start right where we are.

No more "statements" and intellectualization and crappy DEI training, please.… /3

Must we say it about #povertyporn yet again?

Yes we must:

Charitable portrayals of “helping” often conjure up victimhood and passivity in order to validate the assistance being given. #devcomms #comms4dev #comms4good #fundraising /2
There is a growing awareness that these portrayals uphold - rather than counteract - historical, deeply colonial, and continually politicized notions of “the other.”

And it is not ok. /3

1) "Federal Reserve developed the #MainStreetLending Program to help credit flow to small and medium-sized businesses that were in sound financial condition before the pandemic."
2) after initial announcement of #MainStreetLending Program, Fed Reserve expanded it to: Create a 3rd loan option, w/increased risk sharing by lenders for borrowers with greater leverage &
Lowered the minimum loan size for certain loans to $500,000…
3) this resulted in 3 loan (🍕) options: plain, pepperoni & mushroom: "termed new, priority, & expanded" 4 year loans:
New: $500K Minimum Loan Size
Priority: Ditto
Expanded: $10M Minimum Loan Size & up to a TON!

CA's #nonprofits⁠—our clinics, shelters, food banks, senior centers & more⁠—are on the #COVID19 frontlines. Their services are needed now more than ever.

But they're struggling to raise what they need to serve.

Thread on why #DAFs must step up to help —…
What's a donor-advised fund (#DAF)?

As @hasanminhaj explains—they're one of the fastest growing vehicles for charitable giving in the US.

They're appealing bc when you give to a DAF, you take the tax break now—w/out any legal requirement of $ to go to nonprofits. Indefinitely.
DAFs are exploding in popularity—almost *tripling* in total assets since 07.

A *huge* sum of donations go to DAFs. But unlike donations to private foundations, DAFs are *not* legally required to donate a min amount to charities—they get a tax break, w/out having to spend a dime.

Selected excerpts from #AB1712 @BuffyWicks analysis: #DAFs: "a donor-advised fund is a form of charitable giving whereby a donor makes a charitable contribution to a fund that is managed by a fund sponsor." /1

Wondering what’s happening with #socialassistance reform in Ontario?

Here’s a new report from @maytree_canada on Service Transformation in Ontario Works.

It's lengthy, so I’ve tried to capture the threads with, well, this thread🧵. #onpoli…
Though the gov repealed some of its early decisions on income support, there are significant changes underway on the service delivery side, in particular changes to the employment and skills training offered to #OntarioWorks recipients that we need to pay attention to.
The paper explores what these changes are, whether they address the root causes leading people living in #poverty to need support from OW, how other countries fared when undertaking similar reforms (spoiler alert: not great), & things that @ONgov will need to consider.

Hey #activists & #nonprofits!!

A 20 second (!!) video + pop culture.

You doing that?…
Actually, I'll answer my own question: No. You're probably not.

The right has gotten better at digital strategy + psychographics.

The left? Not so much. I lead a digital marketing firm & I regularly give talks about how to leverage pop culture for #SocialGood. Why? Because that's where the people are.…

Here is a social experiment.

Will I be reported to @Twitter for using offensive and demeaning language if I use -- correctly -- the word "#niggardly" -- in a sentence?

The Hawaii Supreme Court rejected the tax assessor's approach as a niggardly construction of the statute.
I've been reviewing decisions of the #HawaiiSupremeCourt on the question of whether #nonprofits were properly charged a #generalexcise #tax under Hawaiian law for various activities and operations that produced #income to the organization.
Courts begin (and end) their principal analysis of such issues by examining an underlying tax law, code, rule, or regulation.

1} My Dear Friend Geri,

With all due respect to current #NonProfits serving Refugees & Immigrants - their Branding & Messaging are #Tragically #Weak.

#OurAmericanKids🇺🇸 are BEING #SCAPEGOATED & #WE, the Liberals of #OurCountry we call the United States of America...
2} ...get OUR #Truthful-#Propaganda #LUNCH handed to us - #EVERY #DAMNED #TIME there's a watershed political issue.

My opinion as a 25-year #Duke MBA-trained-#Strategist, is that "Dreamers" is a well-intentioned, but desperately INEFFECTIVE MONIKER for #OurAmericanKids. Scapegoats for American Fascists
3} My dog #Sadie is a very #Active #Dreamer. Hitler #Dreamed about ruling an #AryanPlanet.

Un-@realDonaldTrump dreams of building a wall "SO fucking HIGH," that planes can't #LAND in #Texas without traveling 100-miles North of our Southern Border - just to pull a #giant U-ey✈️ Hitler Dreamed of an Aryan Planet-Earth.U-Turn in the sky
