Appreciating Nonprofit Experts

I attended a lunch meeting hosted by the South Dakota Association of Fundraising Professionals today.  Sometimes educational activities are hard to make time for.  But I can't think of a single time I didn't come away glad I attended.  We coach our clients to continue professional development in their respective trade or field, and I always remind myself that nonprofit folks are not off the hook on this either.

Hats off to SDAFP, and SD Community Foundation, Andrew Knutson, Ronda Gusinski, and all the other folks who work hard to make a networking group valuable.   And THANKS to the SD governing bodies for updating the 1960's SD Nonprofit Corporation Act.  Can't wait to see your final version!

Hope to see you all tomorrow for the morning continuing education seminar!

“Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must; just never give up.” ― Dean Karnazes

A friend brought a good cause to our attention the other day, and we read up on it.  Then we donated.  There's a lot of need for services and support to help the Lakota people, and causes that target Lakota kids especially hit home.  Take a moment to read up on what Robert's trying to do, and then support Robert's Run as he helps Rural America Initiatives' Capital Campaign to replace their Head Start center.  The issues faced on and off reservations are heartbreaking, overwhelming, and frustrating.  We often feel like there's not much we can do - but then someone like Robert comes along and reminds me we can all do something!  CLICK HERE to help Robert raise $5,000.

building dreams for succeeding generations of Lakota youth

Robert, a member of the Black Hills Runners Club since 2012, describes himself as “…not an elite runner; I’m a goal-oriented, middle of the pack, late-bloomer runner.” This will be his final 100 mile ultramarathon, “I enjoy running the Ultra distances and the training discipline they require to be physically and mentally prepared. My final personal goal is to complete the Black Hills 100 Mile Ultra trail marathon on June 26th and 27th, 2015. This event is special to me as I will be running to help raise money for the children of Rural America Initiatives, (RAI) and the Capital Campaign. RAI is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. The Early Head Start and Head Start children currently occupy outdated modular buildings geographically separated throughout the Rapid City community. All proceeds will go to the Capital Campaign and a new 28,500 foot Head Start facility.”

Local Folks with Global Vision

Thanks to media outlets (KOTA) who care enough to feature the good work of nonprofit organizations, we've become aware of a great event this weekend to benefit Bridges of Hope.  I had never heard of this group of inspired people, but am impressed with the entrepreneural spirit it took to found and grow this venture.  They prove that you don't have to be part of a large international organization to make a real difference in the lives of people suffering poverty worldwide.  Hats off to Bridges of Hope.  See you Saturday night!

Rapid City Urban Orchard Spring Planting

Loving what we do and doing what we love.  Meaningful work is even more fun when in the company of friends.  It was nice to see so many from SDSMT show up to help out, and all the families who brought their kids out.  Teaching youth about giving is so important!   Honeycrisp apples, pears and peaches for anyone who needs and wants them.  What an inspired project, and what a great group of volunteers!
