  • ROI and Net Revenue are a Contradiction in Terms

Yet, nonprofit organizations often fish for new donors and members across a vast market defined (sometimes) rather haphazardly.
  • Directly Speaking - Make Miss Manners and Your CFO Happy
    Sending a timely, relevant thank-you letter in return for any gift is the prudent and mannerly thing to do – both in our private lives, and in business.  It’s all about preserving a relationship, communicating appropriately, and establishing and maintaining a personal style.
