How To Raise Money With Email

My pal, Web of Change diva and online fundraiser extraordinaire Madeleine Stanionis’  book is finally out! In it she shares all of the wisdom she’s accmulated helping big nonprofits raise millions of dollars online via timely, well-written and well-designed email appeals.  I can’t wait to get my mitts on a copy — it’s sure to be packed full of smart advice from one of the smartest 21st-century fundraisers on the planet.
Looks like Michael Stein agrees.

See You at Plone Symposium

On Tuesday, my colleagues Andrew Burkhalter, Jon Baldivieso and I are heading down to New Orleans (!) where we’ll be attending Plone Symposium 2006, the annual gathering of the North America Plone community.

This will be the second annual Plone Symposium, and the third major Plone community event in New Orleans, and, most significantly (to me) my first big Plone event.

We’re giving a tutorial on Wednesday afternoon about our experiences implementing Plone for grassroots environmental nonprofits, in which we’ll share a bunch of the tips and tricks we’ve accumulated over the past two years and 50+ nonprofit websites we’ve launched using Plone.
There’s so much I’m looking forward to: meeting all of the Plone folks whom I’ve previously only known by IRC nickname; getting to see New Orleans first-hand; meeting Plone users and developers from outside of my comfortable little nonprofit technology bubble. It’s going to be a great week.

ONE/Northwest Open-House at NTC 2006!

If you’re going to be in town for the Nonprofit Technology Conference later this month, please swing ONE/Northwest for the open house we’re hosting on Wednesday, March 22nd, 5-8pm.

There’ll be food, drink and lots of interesting folks. And, if you’re lucky, a nice sunset over the Olympics.

Please RSVP so we can be sure not to run out of comestibles.
