Question to nonprofits: Who do you think you are? | Northwest Opinion Columns | The Bellingham Herald

Eating a bratwurst at Boston Harbor last Friday I was greeted warmly by the marina manager. It was my first visit this year to the marina’s weekly summer “beer-b-ques” – gatherings on the dock where folks eat well, taste local brews and socialize. Families with kids and dogs mix with both old timers and young people working at their summer jobs on the water. I spent many Friday nights there last summer eating grilled salmon, watching the sunset and chatting. It’s a place that does what it does really well.


Have you really considered who you are?  What is your OPUS?  Are you part of one of those nonprofits who “insist on their relevance but don’t consider it”?  How does this lack of consideration, focus and clarity affect your organization’s ability to fundraise, steward and find new resources?  Contact me to learn more on a discernment journey that takes you from clarity to income.  Join us August 1st with others who are ready to launch rapid growth through collaborative philanthropy.
