Nonprofit Insider: March 19, 2020
Please help us to spread positivity!
Current times are weird, to say the least.

It's probably not a good idea to give your boss a big hug as recognition for their hard work (there may be some strange harassment implications, anyways) but you could definitely nominate them for the CEO of the Year Award !

The nomination deadline for the Nonprofit Excellence Awards has been extended to Friday, March 27, 2020!

Please join us in spreading recognition and happy vibes - we are all in this together.

What would the Insider be without humor?!
Nonprofit professionals work hard as it is - now, let's throw a pandemic in the mix, too?! SHEESH.

Last year, we introduced the Comedy Campaign throughout the month of April. Well, we're back even earlier this year because we need humor now more than ever.

Please consider submitting a post to the 2020 Comedy Campaign. Your post can be:
  • Working from home funnies
  • Dealing with kids being home PAIRED WITH working from home funnies
  • Plain and simple nonprofit funnies (there's always something going on!)
  • Toilet paper funnies (we had to)
