When’s the best time to post on facebook facebook’s andrew noise nose at traffic is at an all time hyre on nine a, m or p m so that’s, when you should be posting your most meaningful post here’s aria finger ceo of do something dot or ge young people are not going to be involved in social change if it’s boring and they don’t see the impact of what they’re doing. So you got to make it fun and applicable to these young people look so otherwise a fifteen and sixteen year old they have better things to do if they have xbox, they have tv, they have their cell phones. Me dar is the founder of idealist took two or three years for foundation staff to sort of dane toe add an email address their card. It was like it was phone. This email thing is fired-up that’s why should i give it away? Charles best founded donors choose dot or ge somehow they’ve gotten in touch kind of off line as it were and and no two exchanges of brownies and visits and physical gift mark echo is the founder and ceo of eco enterprises. You may be wearing his hoodies and shirts. Tony talked to him. Yeah, you know, i just i i’m a big believer that’s not what you make in life. It zoho, you know, tell you make people feel this is public radio host majora carter. Innovation is in the power of understanding that you don’t just put money on a situation expected to hell. You put money in a situation and invested and expect it to grow and savvy advice for success from eric sacristan. What separates those who achieve from those who do not is in direct proportion to one’s ability to ask others for help. The smartest experts and leading thinkers air on tony martignetti non-profit radio big non-profit ideas for the other ninety five percent. Welcome back to big non-profit ideas for the other ninety five percent in our two hundred fifty of non-profit radio got to do the got to do the live listen love gadsden, alabama, st louis, missouri. Hubert, north carolina. Augusta, maine. San francisco, california, philadelphia, pennsylvania and there are others. But to those listeners in those cities live listener love going to you, let’s, go abroad. Lindenhurst, new york that’s not abroad. I’m sorry. That’s long island that’s. Never yeah, and clear mind talking about it, perhaps along falik no, i’m talking about i’ve listened to love to lindenhurst and also beaumont, texas live listen, love but now we can go abroad tokyo always checking in, always grateful for our tokyo listeners live listener love, konichiwa also, seoul, south korea multiple soul listeners, as always remarkable. So loyal anya haserot, you are korean listeners. Marie samples got cem, some prospect research tips. Did you? What did you do? Go back and comb your four years of non-profit radio? Or what would you do? No, no. You know, i decided to just pull out cem cem tips that i’d be using if i were just talking to somebody or just doing a speaking engagement, just sort of the top sites that i think people should be aware of. So i brought a few those with me today. If you want me to talk about yes, you’re our diet of dirt cheap. So talk about talk about a sight. Okay, great. So, you know, i’m a fan of talked about this before setting up alerts, so i wanted to remind everyone that you set up those google alert it’s and, uh, the other two that i’ve been actually getting a lot more hits on since i set it up for your show to test it actually was talk walker dot com and mentioned dot net, i get so many more hits on that than i do on google alerts and ah, on the reason why i had tested it a couple of years ago on your show was because i i’d read an article that google might be doing away with their alert service at some point, right? We talked about it, and even even if they hadn’t done away with it, it was not very robust, right? It was disappointing. Yeah, yeah. And then the results continue. Tio go down, down, down. So i i i definitely love the talk walker dot com. And so my my advice around, though, using those would be set him up for your top ten donors, you know, put their names in in an alert so that if something comes up about them, you can call them, congratulate them, you know, hopefully not commiserates, but okay. And i’ve since we talked about it i’ve been using both of those i used talk walker and mentioned dot net different ones because they give each allow you a couple for free. You have different alert set up on each of those cool. What else? Well, so well, i thought we would also spend a few minutes talking about nosa knows a search because it’s ah it’s definitely one of those sites that has both a a free and a fee based component to it. So for free, you could do some foundation research on knows that site, but it’s also a great compilation, ifyou’re doing individual research, esso they have various levels where you could either pay for a month or pay for a year. So it’s a good pay as you go type of service. So that’s why i kind of think it falls under that dirt cheap. Okay, it’s a little more about noser so knows that enables you to go in and input an individual’s name, for example, and be able to actually find out if they’ve given any major gifts to any organizations. So it’s an opportunity to as you’re doing in depth donorsearch research on those heiner hyre net worth individuals find out where they’re donating gifts tomorrow. If this sounds a valuable stuff, right? Well, i’m thinking about about how we might apply it to our plan. Giving marketing. Yeah, absolutely. I would really like to know more about our donors. Yeah, absolutely. So, it’s it’s a pretty valuable service. So it’s ah, i think it falls under blackbaud not if i’m not mistaken, but it’s certainly an opportunity for you to check it out because they have both free and be based stuff. So okay, so there is a there is some free to it, right? Yeah. In keeping with the door. Yeah. Yeah. Okay, we have ah, i believe we have any sample ward has called in. Maybe sabat ward, you know? Hey, i’ve been on for a while. I wasn’t sure how could most nicely interrupt? No, no. Okay. You’ve been out for a while. All right? Well, i’m not sure sam saw you, but i’m glad you’re there.

Hello, you have you have been on non-profit radio since the one hundredth show? That’s when that was the first show you were on. Exactly. I i know i’m so i was actually thinking about it today to interview shows. I started to do the mental map, and then i decided to not do the mental map of how long has he been that’s? Well, it’s three years, we do fifty shows a year. Yeah. And you’ve been since the hundred. So to fifty minus one hundred. One hundred fifty, divided by three. Yeah.

It doesn’t matter whether you listen, i’ve got it so let’s. Leave the diseases alone. It’s, our one thousand four hundred fiftieth show. And i’m glad claire meyerhoff is my co host today. God, claire, your hair looks great. Thank thanks so much. And you know, tony, i got to the studio a little bit late because you know, am tracks. Bullet train was delayed. It took me twenty minutes to get here to get to new york city from d c can you believe that? I know twenty minutes. That’s. Incredible, incredible. Oculus. Well, there’s, no way to run a way to run. I’m gonna call it. I’m gonna call joe biden’s great grandson. But that’s okay. We are hosted by google mind warp. Of course. So now time is meaningless. Grand love that so let’s get started. We’re talking about how eighteen million non-profits khun stay relevant now that poverty has been eradicated. Universal hyre education is free, global warming has been solved. And then amazing global cooling was headed off. The palin panels eliminated all disease. Turns out sara was much smarter than people give her credit for it’s. So sad that she died in that tragic ego explosion and all our historical sites are funded by the trump foundation for old buildings. I haven’t torn down yet. And you know what? All the homeless dogs and cats have homes every child can read. When when? What is it that sort of thing? That trump was elected president? I don’t know. I was around like your four hundred four hundred show. It was sometime around there. I think it was. Was he before or after that first black president? What? What was his name? I think his name was obama, not president sasha obama. President barack obama’s obama first one obama senior, right, that’s, right. And then it was sasha came a few after him. And who was the president before that? And then i think it was trump. Well, trump was somewhere in there before. Oh, yeah, president for her, for her, something remember is very short term president. He didn’t last one term. That guy was beached. I mean, converting the lincoln bedroom to a casino. I know. And, you know, it was amazing because i remember at the republican national convention that year he came out to announce his vice presidential choice and he was like, okay, oh, you idiots, i got news for you. I’m going. I’m going to tell you who my who? My vice presidential candidates going. Toby he’s going to do amazing things going kick congress in the butt he’s going to be fantastic. Here he is. I’d like to announce my choice for vice president of the united states. Missed a gary abuse e i e o i remember. Yeah, it was right for that’s. Come. I forgot all about that, but yes, from president then and then he fired him on inauguration day. I know that was great. You’re fired, right, right after three inaugurations, like noon by twelve. Fifteen that the guy was fired. Yeah. And you know, trump did all these other things too, like, remember he there were those. There were the hearings, the senate judiciary committee hearings for that supreme court justice. And they were they were asking him a lot of questions, and i thought, oh, this guy is never going to get confirmed. But then, you know, supreme court justice, meatloaf did a great thing. He started singing hey started singing paradise by the dashboard light and then senator elizabeth warren remember she like god and meet lo slap and did they do? With, you know i want wait no that’s a different song, but paradise by the dashboard light that’s a cool one that’s a great and that’s s o they were singing, you know, trump really? You know, when it comes to non-profits especially like a you know, he just teaches wrecked things, didn’t and he also wrecked a lot of our beautiful national landmarks. Well on, give the guy credit. We have that water slide going down the grand canyon, right? The trump water slide that’s the grand canyon on a park and he you know, he’s. He did get his face put on mount rushmore, although they have chiseled it off. So that was good. I gave ten dollars to that on go fund me. Remove remove the fifth face removed the room. Remember it. The billboards removed the fifth bullet. They gotta go fund me dot com ten dollars. All my friends, i put it on facebook. Remember facebook? I know so so. And sometimes you get into these like dramas with people from high school where people like criticized it was terrible, it’s that now we don’t need no way have that mental telepathy thing where we all just know, whatever i was thinking it was cool for a run. I mean, it brought people together, you know, i i deserve whatever that guy’s name was, i can’t remember, but, you know, he made a lot of money, but it just didn’t just in last, i mean, the advertising took over and people just obviously migrated away. Yeah, and now we have the mind meld, and so we just, like, i just think something like tony is going to take us out to lunch and then it happens i don’t have to put it on facebook like, hey, maybe tony will take us to lunch, i just think it remember that remember that trump presidential library with the with a swim up bar and the song? Yeah, yeah, and then he had the follicle transplant center in the presidential library, remember? And and you know what? This is the first thing i remember about trump that really affected non-profits because a lot of my clients really got mad, so he came up with that whole directory of, like, best practices for non-profits and he said and he said, and i and i remember him being on tv. He was announcing. It goes yet, you know. So this is the number one thing. I think you should offer. Fi, you development directors and hyre showgirls. That’s what that would be best pregnant, raised more money that way, if you had, if you had the showgirls, its development, people waving the future because we’re headed back, we’re going back. We’re headed back cool, oh my god, wow, and, you know, we learned so much we learned we learned about when we went to the future, we learned about the past, we learned what happened when oh, no, no, it was that government can be. It can’t be that had to be like the mushrooms. I don’t think so, yeah, it’s not going to have the crystals, but that was a cool that was a cool look at the future. Don’t you think it was that gold thing? Things are gonna be good in the future. They are. So we’ve got what we have now. Really? Okay, i think now, back in back in show two, fifty, um, let’s. Uh let’s go to aa a lot more coming up, but i have to spend a little time talking about pursuing but we have other stuff coming up, jean chicago’s going to calling in their work.

Thank you so much. And that is tony’s take two for friday twenty fourth of july sorry, yeah. Twenty fourth of july and twenty ninth show of the year we got jean takagi uh, chicago’s on the line. Jim takagi, how are you doing? I’m doing great. Tiny. Congratulations on to fifty. Thank you. So, so much. Gene is our longest running contributor to non-profit radio hyre he and it’s, the very popular law non-profit law blawg dot com. And uh, he’s, the principal attorney at neo-sage non-profit and exempt organizations law group in san francisco and on twitter he’s at g tak. Gene, you have been with me since july twenty seventh, two thousand eleven. Longest running contributor. That’s fantastic. Tony the time. Where’s the time gone. It’s. Incredible. Four years every month. Um, i’m just so grateful. You know, we, uh we started. I went back with the first topic we covered together was so you want to start a non-profit which seemed like a logical place to start. Yeah. I mean, you know, just thank you so much, gene, for taking time to prepare every week and for being with me with us every single week for every single month. Everybody that’s, right? Every every month. Yeah, i don’t really read inviting your more off. Thank you. What what’s going on? There neo-sage what your clients are. Concerned about, but they’re few things going on night. One of the things that were really excited about is that board source has listed advocacy as a keyboard responsibility earlier this week, and they just updated their their seminal book on dad possibilities of non-profit boards and for the first time, advocacy became a keyboard responsibility and we think that’s that’s just great. So that’s one big advocacy, okay, we’ve talked about that lots of times, and maria simple and i have talked about boards being advocates, right? Marie? Absolutely being friendraising er’s advocates out in the community mirriam you and i have talked about that a lot online ambassadors, right? Yeah, absolutely. There, there you’re you’re they should be it at least your biggest and best right? What else do you know about? Oh, sorry. God. Sorry. Uh, i was just going to concur with both of you on that and apart from the friendraising and fund-raising some serious issues that might affect all non-profits and we’ve been kind of leading some advocacy efforts on that, both on the state level, for us with cal non-profits on the national level with the national council was non-profits and some others. As well. And then some of those provisions air, like the charitable deduction provisions that are congress is looking at right now and and where those air going. There’s, charitable registration requirements, better being promulgated by the state. Um, that are becoming a little bit more scary for non-profits if some of these things go through, it would be like if you fail to, you know, be missed a filing and you continue to operate, we might hold your board members liable for needing to operate on that suspension period. Also, scary things happening that that non-profits have a chance to push back on. And when, when you’ve got board members and others, you know who are willing to advocate on your behalf, beneficiaries, that that you’re serving, it can really make it. Okay, okay, so there’s gonna be a lot for us to be talking about in the in the coming months. That’s always okay. Okay. Hyre all right, jean, i really i want to thank you very much. Thanks for thanks so much for being part of the two fiftieth and and and so, you know, such a long running history. Thank you. So, so much great. Thank you so much. And have a great rest of the show. It’s. A pleasure. Thank you, jean. Thanks a lot, maria let’s. Spend a couple minutes on. Ah, couple more your, uh, your tips for prospect research. Okay, good. So so this tip has to do with visiting your local library. You’ll remember i’m a huge proponent, our local lagers. And so one of the online database is that i really love that the library is called reference yusa. Esso. I really wanted to bring that back as a reminder for everyone. Because it’s a source that will allow you to really find business owners in the community find businesses themselves in the community. And you can actually you can get is as focused as looking for them within a specific zip code. You can open it up to a county wide search. A state wide search. So it’s really? I think it’s. A great way to do what i like to call that proactive prospecting. So if you’re trying to get some new lists and maybe if people to send invitations to within specific industries and invitations for maybe an upcoming walk or a gala or something that you’re having, i think that that’s a really terrific resource. Great one reference, yusa reference. Use a dot com. Well, if you go to reference, use a dot com. It is a fee based resource, but many, many libraries will carry it. It’s usually accessible, right, using your your bar code on your library card, you can access it for free. So, you know, in keeping with our free theme, of course, i know you love the library’s. Yeah, what else is on your list? Eso you know, i’m always always a fan of also giving linked in some love wanted to remind everyone to go to non-profits dot linked in dot com because they’ve got tons of great resource is for you on that on that site. Andi, you could do a lot of proactiv prospecting there is well, you get access to the fee based version for free as a non-profit esso. I would really encourage you to take a look at non-profits darlington dot com see what they have there on take advantage of the proactive prospecting you. Khun dio i think the sp one of the early times if it wasn’t the very first time i met you was when you were doing a panel on linked in for non-profits years ago. Like at the westchester county. A f p or something? Yeah, you there were. There were a couple of you jerry stengel was on. Yes, and mark and mark. Mark that’s. Right. Exactly. Mark helping mark helper. Thank you.

You were saying filming, but you were taping from now on. We’re doing this show from there. And you did have a song because we did do what we did. Cope. Present a panel together on the topic of lincoln’s. Okay, and then we used it on the show. All right. We’ve got just a minute or so left before we gotta move to our next give away. We got to get away coming up there, meyerhoff you’re not you’re honest. You’re on deck. Man on deck. What can you tell us in a in a minute, maria? Well, in another minute, i just want to remind everyone to ah, to make sure that you’re finding out whatever your library has for free. Take advantage of all the different ways you can set up a google searches and really focusing them down so that you’re getting the search results that matter to you. Ah, you’re only interested in where somebody is ah, connected to a non-profit make sure you filter it down to include site, colon, dot or ge ahh and then that’ll just bring up the search results on a person’s name where they’re connected to a dot or giff you’re trying to find out where they’ve donated or where they’re spending their volunteer time.

Okay, so what do you got for us? So the first step is actually a conference starting on monday and i’ll be there. So there you go. I think everybody should try and help onboard this one. It’s, the american marketing association’s non-profit conference and i attended last year for the first time and it was really fantastic. It’s it’s being held in arlington, virginia. Okay, but that’s only for that’s. Really going to only be for our live listeners. So just a lifeless right. Ok, let’s, uh, just just give the girl for that one. And let’s, let’s move to one that may am dot ork and made that og the american marketing association that’s, right? You and your stinking variety of not of conferences, but this one is really specifically focused on the non-profits sector. Okay, what else? Go and apra thie association of professional researchers for advancement. They’ve got their upcoming international conference this summer, it’s, starting on july thirtieth through august second in las vegas. So this is really the one time of year preeminent event if you’re planning to attend anything related to prospect research, uh, this is going to be the biggest gathering of prospect research geeks, if you will. And so there’s always plenty of grated speakers and it’s in las vegas. That website is apra home dot or a pr a home dot borg. Okay, excellent. I’ve spoken that. Ah, a couple of regional apra conferences, but never the never the national or the global, whichever, whichever that when this. That was one of you. Go ahead. It was just gonna say that they do have folks that do come in from a couple of other countries, especially from canada. They have a pretty good representation from there as well. Okay, okay. Mining was not quite as exotic as las vegas. I think it was it was actually somewhere in new jersey. What else you got for us? Um also coming up in the fall is the alliance for non-profit management. Uh, they’re conference has a theme this year. Capacity building for collective action and they’re holding it on september seventeenth through the nineteen was austin, texas. Okay, what’s the alliance all about. So the alliance really deals with a lot of issues around leadership and governance and ah, latto things generally related to capacity building. So they do touch upon anything having to do with really expanding unorganised ation in terms of, you know, thinking about growth and staffing and broadening your board and fund-raising so that might be one to consider attending in this hall unless i was there something you want to check out.

Who’s ah listeners supporter fan of the show for getting us to two hundred shows it’s really it’s really amazing and i have to give a shout to generosity siri’s they host multi charity peer-to-peer runs and walks. I am seed. They’re new york city event you’ve heard me talk about them. There were that new york city event. There were, like ten, ten or twelve charities they raised over one hundred thirty thousand dollars collectively. That’s what generosity siri’s does. It puts together a bunch of small and midsize non-profits that can’t generate enough activity for their own run walk. But together, collectively, i love that they can, and they could be very successful at it. They’ve got events coming up in new jersey, miami, atlanta, another one in new york city, philadelphia and toronto. If you think a run walk might make sense for you, talk to dave lynn he’s, the ceo. You can get him at seven one eight five o six, nine, triple seven, or they’re on the web, of course, generosity. Siri’s dot com, very grateful for their sponsorship. Um, we have. What’s happening?

A time before tony martin. Any non-profit radio existed. We’ve traveled to cary, north carolina. Where two fund-raising colleagues tony martignetti and clear meyerhoff are having dinner. Clear. The food is really good here, so yeah. It’s awesome. Cool. I invited you out because actually, i have this idea. I want to do a radio show. I want to interview smart people in the nonprofit world and help small and midsize non-profits i want to do it every week. I know you’ve worked in radio. I think you can help me. Doesn’t sound like a cool idea. Are you nuts? Are you crazy? Do you have any idea how much work it is to produce and host a radio show every single week? Why are you being such a bummer? I’m such a downer. I’m just being honest, claire, i want to do this. It means a lot to me. And i know that you can help me raise it. And i will i will hire you. I will pay you. Ok, ok, you can pay me, i’ll help you get started. I want a hundred bucks. You buy dinner tonight and i get a credit at the end of every single show. Who knows? It could be really big one day. Two hundred shows later. Here we are non-profit radio players about that. Non-profit radio players um, yes, it’s been it’s been two hundred shows, it’s unbelievable, and claire has been with me since the beginning, and i’m very grateful, so if i don’t get a chance to say it later, claire, thank you so much for all your help with non-profit radio it’s been a pleasure, i’ve really enjoyed watching the show grow. I was really, like, just surprised and so excited that you could make the show becomes such a wonderful, wonderful show, you’ve helped so many non-profits and you’ve done a great job. You really made the investment i’ve had people come to me and go, well, could you help me do what you did for tony and like, well, really people have really? Oh, yeah, and i say, well, really well, do you want to make, like, this huge investment of of your time and your talent and your money and all this? If you if you want to do all that, then then you could pay me ten thousand dollars and i’ll help you. Oh, man, i got a deal. You’re the best, but no, it was trying to, like, put its laid them it’s a labor of love absolutely love and so thank you very much. Thank you, let’s. Give away a prize. We got more prizes it’s unbelievable. My book, my voice treyz crackling fourteen clay meyers bowman shared his story of an ask in the governor of kansas is mansion, the honorary campaign chair for the burger sands in art gallery in central kansas. Mark parkinson had moved into the governor’s residents just the day before the meeting. He had just gotten sworn in. He hosted this breakfast meeting and they got double the gift that they asked for. They ask for fifty thousand they got hundred thousand awesome. The whole story is that tony martignetti dot com and for that terrific story, clay, i’m going to send you a copy of gale perry’s book fired-up fund-raising turned board passion into action. Gail perry is one of my mentors. I’ve learned so much about fund-raising from gail, for instance, gail’s classic thing is, claire, if you want money, ask for advice. If you want advice, ask for money, that’s what she said so there’s a lot of great lessons in her book, and gail perry has been a guest on this show and also my other podcast what i do for the chronicle of philanthropy fund-raising fundamental. She was a guest there too. Alright, so, clay, you’re going to get a copy of that book? Fired-up fund-raising i love her energy to she’s. Got gail perry very good. And she’s an unbelievable speaker chic. She flies all over the world and speaks to organizations. She mentioned new zealand a few weeks ago. And she’s just she’s, a maven in a guru and oh, fabulous. She should have her own tv show like oprah. Also from north carolina. Right? Also, she should look right down the block for may. Is that right? Okay. Yeah. You know, i walk to her house. I wantto let’s talk to scott a labbate i wantto now’s the time. I want to hear a little about this. The cheap red wine is our theme song mutual friend of ah of scots and mine put us together. Um, cheap red wine scott what’s it about, um well, it’s, about five years old. So that’s that’s not what you’re asking that’s. All right, bad joke. Cheap red wine was a song i wrote. I had moved to new york. This i moved about. Seven years ago, and i’ve lived here on the upper west side where we are where we’re recording. Yes, what? And so yeah, i i moved to this neighborhood and as part of the young jewish singles crowd, which i am no longer your conversation converted to catholicism. No, i converted out of the single dahna on. Got married about a year ago. Thank you. Thank you, lucky lady. I’m a lucky guy. Yeah, so i but i but i moved here to the neighborhood, and i found myself going to a number of, like, dinner party’s friday night, shabbat dinners. And inevitably, it felt like everybody was meeting was either in law or finance. Now, those are two fine feels my sister is a lawyer. Um, but i remember actually, well, several times i had to explain what it was they do because i’m a full time musician. I work free lands and explaining that it was something i kind of had to do a lot. And i remember one time i i sat down at a meal and somebody sat next to me and she said so deal working law finance on. And i said neither she thought. I was a doctor. I should have kept going when i should have kept her going like that. Yeah, so it was just kind of a response to that. I think that, you know, i think this song on it service just seems to be about relationship that’s not working. But i think that in pop music and especially in rock music, which i think there are a lot of, um, sort of the warm look for their their their certain like modes right there, certain models for the way you write a song and writing songs broken about a broken heart or really shit that’s not working is almost like a cliche, but it’s a matter of what you do with it. And so that was this’s the idea of being let’s hear it, we’re going to hear, we’re going to have a full, we’re going here, the full, cheap red wine, and then we’ve got it. We’ve got somebody on the line. I hope that the caller can hold while we listen to the theme of non-profit radio cheap red wine scott stein. Well, baby, you just keep on talking. Sooner or later, i’ll figure out what you mean. You see, in romantic advice from a billet, i’m looking the answer’s upon a tv stream. Wait can agree on nothing way. Get tiller ups from my down.

Cool. Thank you, john again. Alright. John federico on twitter he’s at gadget boy, we have ah, jean takagi on the line. Don’t wait. Jean takaaki, how are you, man? I’m doing excellent, tony. Congratulations that i loved scott song. I’m looking for that on itunes right away. Excellent. Yes. He’s it’s. Perfect. Just yeah. It’s great does hear it live fabulous. Jean is our legal contributor with me once a month. Yet it’s the very popular nonplussed non-profit law blogged dot com and his principle of neo the non-profit and exempt organizations law group and on twitter he’s at g tak e t a on dh i know gene, we don’t have a lot of time, but we’re going to want to talk a little bit about collaborations. Yeah, i thought, you know, in the spirit of the two hundred show and your collaborations with many of us on giving us the opportunity to to work with you, giving us a platform to spread our message to non-profit sectors i thought maybe we should start a preview what we might talk about next time and that’s just really about non-profits getting together and collaborating. And i think most people think that that is a good thing don’t you think i do on i think institutional funders think of it is a good thing. I think they like to see collaborations between non-profit duitz but i think that the first step would be like, how would we determine who might be the right organization to collaborate with? Yeah, i mean that’s a really good point, and so now i’m gonna put on my lawyer hat and say, well, it’s, a good thing, but, yeah, you absolutely have to be very careful about who you’re collaborating with and how well do you know them? And do you know, if you’re gonna work well together, then you have all kind of those legal things involved, like, well, you’re you’re going to do that, and i’m going to do this, but what if something else happens or what if you don’t do what you promised to do, do do we want to make this an enforceable contractor? Are we just sort of going tto play it really loose and see what happened? Yeah, because everybody’s got mutual expectations. I mean, we’re doing this collaboration for a reason, and so if one side doesn’t carry through the other side, may or may not want to have something enforceable legally and legally binding and enforceable against them. But if they have that, then they know that the other party they’re collaborating with has the same thing potentially against them. Yeah, i mean, so there’s risk running both ways, and i think we come from, you know, the non-profit culture is one of mutual trust and things like that, but, you know, again, putting on the lawyer had its trust but verify and protect on boards of directors have have have the duty to make sure that their organizations are protected so often times, instead of like this really generic nonbinding m o ur memorandum of understanding liketo see a simple contract put into place where you make certain promises to each other and you let the other party note, you’re not going to let them down. And if you if you do, you’re gonna be held responsible and you take that responsibility and does the agreement say what? What the penalty is for or not carrying you your side of the responsibilities? It usually doesn’t say specific penalties, although there could be specific penalties if you feel like, well, you’re really going to lose out if something something awful happens, but usually it’s just damages for however you’re hurt because the other party just didn’t live up to their obligations. Maybe you put a down payment on something in the other party didn’t put up their share, and you lost your. And then then, of course, you would expect to be reimbursed for the harm that was done to you. But sometimes it’s more specific than that. Okay, we’re going to cover that in a lot more detail, as we always do, jean, when? When you’re on, when you want again, i know it’s coming up in a couple weeks, see if i was prepared to know the exact day. I’m sorry i don’t, but do you by any chance? No, i don’t have that. Okay, that’s. All right, right now, that’s. All right. Very cruel of me to put you on the spot like that. But of course, she’ll be back. He’s always back-up month after month. So it doesn’t really matter which day because you’re listening. Anyone get date? August eighth. Okay, thank you very much for that gene. We’ll talk more about partnerships and the obligations mutually had to enforce those obligations. Maybe some about your board. Responsibility boards, responsibilities and what form this thing takes it. Is it a partnership? Is some other legal entity? And what does all that mean? So you and i will talk about all that on august eighth. Sounds great, and congratulations again, tony, on so two hundred, really honored to be a part of part of the program. Thank you, jean that’s, thanks are sweet, and i am. I am very grateful for all your all your contributions. It’s been it’s been a couple of years, and i’m grateful for the time that you put in and i know are ninety, five hundred. Listeners are grateful as well, so thank you very much. Bye, gene let’s give away prize let’s do a prize teens act on twitter now the name of the organization was teens act, and they hit me on twitter there in utah, empowering at risk students to go to college.

They’re just conferences, but larger than just today, we’re excited that we have our new brand new conference is just happening for the first time this year. It’ll be international disco in september, the leading change summit. So we’re other than today being out of the office, hard at work, getting that off the ground say a little more about the leading change summit. Is it too late? Well, is it too late for people to register if they’re interested? It is not. We actually got a good number of community members giving us feedback that our early bird registration deadline had been the fifteenth of july and they didn’t have enough time to process because it was the new fiscal year to get their whatever their organizations processes t get permission toe register, so we extended the early bird registration until july thirty first, so folks have more time to register at that lowest rate before rates increase and the conference is a bit of ah experiment, really? We felt like, you know, we have an annual conference, we’ve done for fifteen years, the non-profit technology conference and it’s, you know, quite large has sessions on every different topic, and people from all different kinds of organizations are coming together. So we wanted to do something that was totally different so that we weren’t, you know, competing with ourselves and our other conference, but also figuring out what it was that folks wanted that maybe wasn’t offered in that kind of format. So this conference is intentionally quite small limited number of folks, and there are no sessions there there’s not a like, you know, passing time in the hallway. Instead, you select the track or the topic, you know, thatyou wantto wantto work on while you’re there, and then it’s facilitated experience all the way through your working kind of with a smaller cohort of folks and really and that you can take whatever idea you have or whatever challenge, maybe you’re struggling with your organization or, you know, maybe of a new strategic plan, and you want to figure out what to really do with it, whatever that is or you want to create a new campaign, whatever, you could bring that idea or that challenge or obstacle to the conference and hopefully, over those days, the facilitated process will help you get feedback from other people. There will help you rethink maybe what your plans are now and the conference ends the last days an idea accelerator. So people who really put an idea together that that seems like it’s coming together, i can pitch that idea out. Others can come work with them for the day to just continue refining it, you know, poking hole seen how, how much better they can make it on dh then they can present that at the end of the day to a small panel of judges for some awards and it’s not meant that you have to come with, you know, and make a mobile app, or you have to have some technology project. I anticipate there will be a few folk that have kind of a technology translatable projects they want to pitch, but we’re also hoping that people come with, you know, with challenges like i think that the way we tackle this topic is fundamentally flawed, and we have to change the way we’re working on and try and tackle ideas and not just, uh technical project. Okay, that should be a really interesting, you know, convergence of of ideas and the project. People are working on the campaigns. They’re leading. And so far we’re you know, looking at who’s registered, there are organizations of all sizes. There are, you know, every kind of job title you can imagine from the very traditional to be like non-profit sector made up job title, you know, all the way across the board. So it looks like it will be, you know, a diverse group of people. And i think that’ll mean some really interesting conversations. You know, our love. We don’t all know each other already. I like the idea. Accelerator. It sounds like you have to wear a special suit to enter the idea. Accelerator have to strap in. Yes. So everyone will sign a release form will get their seatbelts on and then we’ll begin. Ok. And take their dramamine too. Yeah, take your dramamine before the idea. Accelerator. Ok, cool. How does that sound? So in-kind interesting. His leadership that leading change. Leading change summit clarence. I like anything fast. So you like the night? I like things that are that moved quickly. And faster and exciting. That that’s me. You should be at the accelerator. Comfort just is there a price just for the accelerator? Can we just show up for that? Um, you can show up just for the accelerator, but only if you’re going to support a team. You can’t. You will show up just for the accelerator and get to have your idea. Okay, workshop, you’re welcome to say no. You could just give me a flat. No, because it was so no way we’re open to that because we also recognize there may be people who don’t, you know, i have that time or, you know, approval from their organization to come during the week. And the last day of the conference is a saturday, so we wanted to open it up so folks that i could only come on that day could still, you know, holes in somebody’s idea and help them make it better. But we didn’t want to have those be the ideas that were central stage because they hadn’t participated all week. Okay? And amy, you’re gonna hang out with us for the rest of the hour, right? Until the end of the show, okay? That’s cool. So we got a little girl spare time. That’s great. Yeah, i question all this time on the show. I heard you drop the f bomb a little a little earlier because i love that song. Yeah. It’s, my show coming. Come on, that’s. Sort of like a, you know, a memorable moment o r or something like that. People like like, like goofs. And like, someone dropped something on the floor or theirs, you know, big problems. So, what are some memorable moments on the show? Like when funny things happened that were kind of bad, but not too bad. Well, actually, i am not the first person. Teo drop the f bomb on the show. Beth cantor since we’re on the subject, beth cancer when i interviewed her at pretty sure it was fund-raising day yes, it was fund-raising day in new york city, and it was either two thousand thirteen or two thousand twelve. And i interviewed her on one of the whatever their her topic was. Obviously something that the social change and it was data measurement and yeah, she said, fuck twice twice. So she’s just like death f bomb cantor was that day she was talking about sharks. It had to do with sharks. Sharks, kapin sharks. Yeah, yeah. I was a sight of sharks. Yes, it was very funny because she’s, not the kind of person you would typically think would do that. Ana, i have it on video. You could goto video videos on the youtube channel. Real tony martignetti it’s there. And i’ve used it on the show. So that was that was kind of memorable moment. Anything else? Anything weird happening? Scary. There was a ah near heart attack. Who had a heart attack? No, near near samuel. Remember our bet because it wasn’t too long ago. Ah, very winded. Guest came in he’s he’s. Not a small he’s. Not a small man. Yeah, on but he’s. Very nice. And i was a guest here in the studio. He’s running very late. He was coming from new jersey and that’s how far it was coming from fort lee geever grantcraft level traffic at the bridge. There was traffic, and he ii be sure he he had his cab. He know he had his car. The closest he could park was like a local garage or something. Cause you. Don’t want to drive around the neighborhood. Yeah, i’m going to find a parking spot and then you gotta put your card in the parking meter. You know, it takes too long. So he parked and pulled into a garage and he ran from the garage on the garage. Well, it’s not across the street. No it’s about forget a good four lock. He ran. Yeah. Yeah. And he came very sweaty, red cheeks, heavy breathing. He didn’t have any time, little doris to relax or you’re right. I don’t know. I i tried to try to give him some time to take a breath, take breaths and there’s the water. You know, we have a very sophisticated studio. We have a water cooler, so he got you got some water, and he was he come down and did not have a heart attack. But i was going through my mind was like, my old boy scout cpr training is thirty compressions and two breaths. I was thinking that if i have to do this yeah, yeah. Anything else? How about favored? Guess who was in your favorite guest? How about, like doug white? Oh, like doug white. Well, so yeah, doug, doug white, professor doug what’s been on the show a couple of times, just wrote a book about the the the robinson family lawsuit against princeton university. I know that which was a very big thing. Robinson family was heirs to the a m p fortune that gave sixty five million dollars years ago back in, like nineteen, sixty five or so roughly, and suffice to say, it didn’t go well. And, yeah, way the suit, it was. A big court case is finally settled for a bunch of money. There’s all that donor intent. What is the donor’s intent? And is already carrying that honoring it, right? Um, yeah, i mean, lots of lots of very, very guests. I love when all the regulars come on. Amy and maria and jean i like, you know, it’s. Just very comfortable. So, amy, let me say if i don’t get it, you know, if i forget later, i want you to know that i’m very, very grateful for the time that you put into the show. You know, social media is such a challenge for so many small and midsize shops. I know that they appreciate it. I hope you know that they appreciate it. And i definitely appreciate the time that you’ve been putting into the show. It’s been two years now because you were first on my show at at the one hundred. Yeah. Thank you. All so that’s. Very generous and kind. And i appreciate that you are making that explicit. Even if i tell myself that everyone loves everything i share on the show. I appreciate you saying that. And i love getting to be on the show. It’s. Always fun. Sometimes it feels like a challenge. Thinking of all the things that have happened since the last time i was on the show. What? Do i talk about you know, um, but it’s it’s really fun. And you make it really easy. Oh, i’m glad i’m glad that you enjoy doing it all with, uh, okay now. It’s. A pleasure on it’s. Been it’s been two years. You were with me in the studio. That was back when you lived in new york. Now, of course, you’re in portland, oregon, which i know is oregon. Yeah, it was really fun. Then i thought, oh, my gosh, i’m on the hundreds showed seems so exciting. And now fast forward two hundred show. Here we are, it’s early in oregon. She’s an organ she’s in portland, oregon. And it’s really out there. It’s only there. Three hours early. Yes, she deals with the time difference. Yeah, and i screwed it up in an email. I screwed it up last night. I i added three hours instead of deducting three hours, i think is something. I messed it up. Now that that that time difference math is hard. I mess it up all the time, and he doesn’t have a problem with it. So again, amy, thank you very, very much. You’re cool on dh. Thanks for hanging out for us with us for the rest of the hour.

No, it is a good book, isn’t it? I mean isn’t delivered herself. Isn’t there some value to marry for this? I think so. I could be biased, but i believe it is the best book on the market. Social change, anytime, everywhere and you and i spent why don’t we spend one hour?
