If you are financially reeling from the negative effects of COVID-19, you may be feeling overwhelmed. And desperate. Especially if you have had to lay off staff. I know it wasn’t easy for me.
Every nonprofit I know has experienced some kind of negative financial impact because of the pandemic. How do you rebuild your nonprofit’s finances after such a prolonged, hard hit?
This time of year I reflect on my mother—not just how much I loved her and miss her now, but how I am like her and how she influenced me as a role model. This is a big topic of course!
But I’ve realized that she was a key reason I’m working in the nonprofit sector. I was blessed with a mom who was passionate about social service. Her gentle giving soul was obvious to everyone but, she was savvy and smart too—not to be dismissed as “just a softy” as many women were in her day.
Mom was gone as I was just starting out on my nonprofit journey. But she is with me and has been all along the way.
How about you?
