It was quite an honor to be one of three Southeastern WI Chapter AFP members to receive a scholarship to the AFP International Fundraising Conference in San Francisco this April!  I was amazed by how much information was fit into three days of sessions...

We were basically on the go from sun-up to sun-down, but that's what I'd expect at a conference of this magnitude.

Not only was I able to access top-notch educational sessions and come away with tangible next steps, but for three days, I was able to immerse myself in the philanthropic culture, which reignited my passion for my cause.

Let's graduate to a new appreciation of Milwaukee's nonprofits

I recently attended my niece's graduation.  You've been there:  thousands of grads fidgeting beneath mortar boards, waiting for their big moment, in a ceremony that seems to last a lifetime.

We listened to commencement speeches inspiring new grads to make the world a better place.  It struck me that as the grads transition to their new "reality" (first jobs, summer vacations, or -- gulp -- moving back in with the parents) those messages may soon seem distant and not very actionable.  Unless...

Stories are the currency of life and an important way in which we connect as human beings. As social impact leaders we must think about how we can leverage the art and science of storytelling as a key strategy for the organizations we love to emotionally connect with donors and other target stakeholders to inspire them to act. Creating stories that resonate and break through the clutter in this age of information-overload is not easy...
