Thanks for taking the time to read our Nonprofit Beat. We always want to lift up ideas, and share analytics, content and experiences to help you think differently and take proactive steps to grow and succeed. In some cases doing the same things as in the past and expecting different outcomes has often aligned with the "insanity" quote. And so, our daily efforts with our clients bring us so much insight and perspective that we wanted to share a couple of recent experiences to help you think differently and change.
Late fall 2021, we attended a national conference of nonprofits focused on serving the marginalized in society — homeless shelters, drug addiction centers and places of refuge for those suffering from food insecurity. Recall the atmosphere of the pandemic circling, and yet this group managed to bring leaders together. Their purpose was fascinating — to discuss "things we will never do again." "Nevermore" was the theme.
