Nonprofit Radio News

TMNR official logo squareA lot’s happening for Tony Martignetti Nonprofit Radio. It’s all good, I love it and I want to share it!

Live Listener Love & Podcast Pleasantries!
I’m so grateful to our 9,000+ listeners, whether live or archive. I produce the show for you. You are the reason Nonprofit Radio is thriving. Thank you!

Last Week’s Show
Last week was the Faceoff. An exhilarating show–I’m not exaggerating!–where Atlas of Giving and Giving USA dealt face-to-face with their issues about each other’s work. This is what Forbes.com dubbed the “philanthropy food fight” and I played cafeteria cop.

 
There were a few transgressions, but nothing unmanageable. (I did have to turn off someone’s mic.) A few jibes, but no Jargon Jail. 

 
To Our Contributors:
You’re amazing! I’m so grateful to each of you: Scott Koegler, Gene Takagi, Maria Semple and Amy Sample Ward.

Each month, you take time to prepare and share valuable info for the benefit of small and mid-size nonprofits. Such devotion! You each exemplify what’s great about working in the nonprofit community: sharing; loyalty; expertise; professionalism; and good fun.

You each are a pleasure to work with!

Farewell, Scott!
This Friday is Scott’s swan song. Editor of Nonprofit Technology News, he’s our longest running contributor, at close to three-and-a-half years! I decided to change topics (see below), and I don’t want to have more than four regulars. They are half the show and I want to keep half open for other brilliant guests.

We’ve had a good long run together. Many thanks, Scott!

Welcome, Cindy!
In April, Cindy Gibson will join as our newest contributor–on grants fundraising. She’s principal of Cynthesis Consulting and has over 25 years helping funders (like the Carnegie Corporation) and grantees (including People for the American Way).

And Now, A Word For Our Sponsors:
Thank you! RallyBound, peer-to-peer fundraising, and TBRC, reducing credit card processing fees. I’m very thankful for your support of Nonprofit Radio.

I love producing Nonprofit Radio and I’m grateful to everyone who has a part in this incredibly valuable resource we create each week for nonprofits.

Thank you!

You need to not miss this! And I want you to join the conversation!

Since Atlas of Giving announced its review of 2013 fundraising in January, there’s been tension between them and Giving USA in other philanthropy media. For the first time, they’ll be face-to-face, rather than talking AT each other.

These organizations have 2 things in common:
1. Each prepares a broad analysis of fundraising results.
2. Each has problems with the way the other measures and forecasts.

My guests will be Rob Mitchell, CEO of the Atlas; Gregg Carlson, chair of the Giving USA Foundation; and Una Osili, Director of Research at Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy.

We’ll talk through their issues around accuracy, methodology and relevance. We’re taking your questions, too! Submit them as comments below or on Twitter using the hashtag #NonprofitRadio.

Forbes.com dubbed it the “philanthropy food fight.” On February 21, I’ll be the cafeteria cop.
