    The item previously worked fantastic Bred 11s and We merely presented around 2 times in order to one thing not very good with luck. The following challenge - whitened flour. Merely bear in mind Aqua 11s effectively, We chose the oat use oppose in order to soy, grain or perhaps almond since it got the best dietary fiber content material. On the other hand, after looking at a person's posting upon sugar We simply advancing on the frig to discover of which the natural and organic, non-flavored, oat use incorporates a enormous 19 grams associated with sugar.

  • 9. Getting from “Here” to “There” DonorEdge (GivingEdge): Data, Disruption, Dilemmas, and Destiny * Pending minor credit card adjustments (i.e. refunds)
  • 10. Destiny: How GivingEdge Will Take Us “There” Our Vision for The GivingEdge (GE)  Establish the foundation as a learning/knowledge center  GivingEdge goals - Greater transparency among nonprofits - Higher donor engagement through GE - Increased individual giving - Common grant application  Holy Grail: Lift the nonprofit sector:  Social media  Donor engagement  Clarity in mission  Financial literacy  Strong boards  Marketing  Collaboration
  • 11. Dilemmas: What we face now  Internal  Time  Incorporating technology as a backbone tool - when you lead with paper  Internal practices of processes (finance, grants processing and management…)  Staff capacity  Piloting, testing, retesting, exploration - time  Trying new things, entrpreneurial  Data rich in quantity but data poor in quality - Does the tech pipeline (the input) produce quality and usable data (the output)?  Cost and budgeting  Priority
  • 12. Dilemmas: What we face now  External  Competing funder tech tools (can there be a “common app” a la college application?) - Burden for NPOs  Vendor constraints  Communicating data bites in sound bites to traditional and social media  Changing landscape of giving  Collaboration among funders: how is this branded?  Nonprofit sector woes and capacity - Understanding numbers - Perceived exposure - Sharing knowledge - Permission to inspire with what works
  • 13. Disruption: What we needed to do  Have a vision: - DonorEdge as the facilitating tool that sticks  Push – be the one  Take the shots  Call the question - Financials - Boards - Capacity Build your allies - Funders, donors, nonprofits  Establish community leadership
  • 14. Data: The backbone Using data to  Capitalize on what you have – CFs have obsessive tons of internal data  Start, set, and direct the external conversation  Baby-steps: transform with just a few NPOs to get to the sector, 10% a success  Learn and do, reflect and look at selves, a la Guidestar

  • 27. Continuous Improvement • Continually assess and reassess • Be consistent is seeking feedback from your constituents • Re-evaluate your original goals- do they still hold true? • Continue to take risks and try new things • Look at what your peers are doing- don’t reinvent the wheel • Work across departments • Find good partners

  • 33. Round Robin: Group Concept Ideation) • Sometimes the collective voice of several speaks more powerfully than a single voice alone. • Round Robin allows for the generation of fresh ideas by providing a format for group authorship. • As an idea is passed around from person to person, it can grow and change in unexpected ways and uncover original ideas • Participants inherit and build up on each other’s ideas. • Even if idea seems crazy or impossible, it might contain the seed of something great • The result is that the idea is bigger than one person could imagine on their own
  • 34. ROTATION #1 ROTATION #2 How can community foundations effectively communicate to potential partners about the value of shared data to influence behavior that will advance community-wide goals?
  • 35. Team Presentations: Making and Prototyping: Synthesis You have 20 minutes to review and synthesize an idea from the ideas captured during the last exercise. Your team should pick one or combine elements from different ones. You will use markers and poster paper to create a visual for your presentation. Remember, you don’t have to the world’s best artist, just convey a meaningful representation of your ideas. Even stick figures and primitive drawings can help you present the possibilities. Use one of these formats: • Storyboarding • Concept Poster • Magazine Cover
  • 36. Storyboarding • Draft the main story line of your idea – beginning, middle, and end. Use images. • Put a descriptive phrase for each box. • Determine the characters and the setting and the future scenario.
