In each post, I’m looking at a program, project, initiative, or activity that (right now) is synonymous with a physical presence. Then, I’m re-imagining what that will look […] The post Re-Imagining Re-Engagement Series: KABOOM! appeared first on Notations on Non-Profits.…
Well. Organizations all over the country are looking for ways to overcome canceled events, lost sponsors, or donors. If you’ve read my previous posts, I’ve said this a few times but understanding where you are now, and stabilizing, is most important. More important than jumping into action around what to “do” next.
