Creativity & Competition!
Engaging breakfast meeting this morning with the Passkeys Foundation, talking about ways to grow corporate involvement with nonprofit organizations.
Always a treat to see so many of my friends and colleagues – it even made the white-knuckle terror of “driving on the 5 in the rain” worthwhile. ☔ 🚗 😱
We had a great talk at my table about ways to engage more corporate volunteers and donors. A lot of ideas came up during the conversation – here are some of the key takeaways:
💚 Share the stories of your corporate partners – photos, videos, and testimonials are fantastic ways to recognize and celebrate your corporate volunteers.
💚 Get creative and find ways to connect with the talent and skills of corporate teams.
💚Don’t underestimate the power of a little friendly competition – between departments, between organizations, between teams.
🛑 Also, remember that your turn signal is not a lane-clearing device. You’re indicating intention, not teleporting other cars out of your way. (This topic is more related to the drive on the 5, but maybe you can make a nonprofit lesson about it).
