I’ve recently heard of several great things happening with those who support non profit organizations. So today I thought I’d give a “shout out” to some of these folks. Thank you for all you do to make the world a better place!
12 non profits have been honored through the Getting Attention Nonprofit Tagline Awards. More than 1,000 taglines were submitted as part of the survey. 12 award winners were chosen by 3,062 nonprofit professionals who voted in an online poll.
Congratulations to Jim Berigan, blogger at Top School Fundraisers. He’s published his first e-Book on eFundraising called How Can I Convince Someone to Give to Us When There are So Many Worthy Causes? It’s a free download from eFundraising.com. This is a great preview of the helpful advice from Jim consistently provides in his writings.
Bailey House, a non-profit organization serving the HIV/AIDS community, recently completed a major technology upgrade to their NYC headquarters. This was made possible by the “Xtreme Techover” contest which provided them approximately $500,000 in technology services, software and hardware donated by Avanade, Microsoft, NetApp and NPower NY.

Congrats to Roger Carr of Everyday Giving who was instrumental in planning and promoting the Arthritis Walk in Fredericksburg Virginia. His efforts have earned him Kintera Innovation Award from the Arthritis Foundation! He’ll formally be given the award at a special event later this month
Patrick Sallee has been named the Fundraiser of the Month on A Small Change Fundraising Blog. This interview includes this great quote from Patrick: “If fundraisers can connect on that personal a level with the donor, it builds trust and respect.”
Kudos to Central Dallas Ministries for starting a new blog called Change the Wind which “seeks to change the wind in the current discussion on the policies and systems related to poverty in the United States of America.” Love the name, which comes from a very memorable illustration from Rev. Jim Wallis‘s book God’s Politics. Good luck on this new endeavor; I’ll be following via Bloglines!
