Story Interviews for Non-Profits

The Storytelling Non-profit

When I talk with non-profit professionals about their storytelling endeavors, I often get asked questions about interviewing someone for their story. Story interviews for non-profits are a skill you can master. I often recommend that non-profits have a system for sourcing story leads.

Seth Godin on Innovation, Failure and Why Non-profits Should Stop Operating like Businesses

Back in January of 2008 he told us (the non-profit sector) that we should be looking to use the internet in new and innovative ways to build community and engage our supporters because direct mail, although still a huge revenue source, was beginning to show signs of fatigue.

The Difference Between Profit and Profitable

NonProfit Hub

Profit isn’t a word that nonprofits feel comfortable with. But adding four letters to the dirty word nobody wants to talk about is vital for nonprofits, and completely changes the meaning—profitable.

How can your organization embody the meaning of profitability?
