Giving Tuesday Archives - TurnAround Social Sector Coaching

Giving Tuesday may provide gifts for your nonprofit, but most of us need more than one Giving Tuesday! Financing your nonprofit programs through charitable giving is a cliff hanger because gifts come and go quickly. You probably have discovered that.

I just analyzed the 990’s of a large, wonderful nonprofit in New York City.

BUT I WAS SHOCKED

Their gifts dropped from $120 million to $70 million in one year. I couldn’t believe it. I have a friend that knows them and she said that gifts from hedge funds really have been their major source of funding. In bad years, the hedge fund gifts go away.

For Giving Tuesday, I’m giving two hours of coaching in December to five nonprofit leadership teams. APPLY HERE I’ll review your 990’s, answer questions, and share a couple of tools as appropriate. Good advice never disappears or loses value!

I’m getting more requests than I can honor but its free to apply.

And I truly hope your finances get a major boost on Giving Tuesday also!

Kind Regards

APPLY HERE. It takes one minute 😊  

  • Federal cash for social programs will drop massively by 20%
  • Federal cash for NonProfits is lowest in 40 Year Average of GDP.
  • In 2019, it drops to 11.1%.

Social Security and Medicare costs place incredible pressure to shrink community development, education, arts, afterschool, LGBT civil rights, etc.  Some of that money flows to states and cities and then to your agency –it’s drying up by 10% right now. I see frantic responses to save great programs that are cash starved,

  • Contributions are declining. Tax Law changed in 2017 so there is no tax benefit for most people to make a gift.
  • Religion is quickly declining. Religion has been an important teacher about charity and volunteering. Belief has dropped 12% in a decade.

On Giving Tuesday, I’m offering five NonProfit leadership teams relief from the stress. Apply here. It’s not a miracle but you may get a new direction. I’ll give a two hour coaching session to each team over the holidays. There is no cost at all. Part of the discussion will be planning multiple cash streams to keep your agency stable. I use the proven Four Decisions system (People, Strategy, Execution, Cash).

Apply here. Like the lottery, the only way to win is to try!  I hope the best for you.

Remember, things can grow even in deserts.
