Rank #1: NLN3: Nonprofit Growth Stages with Steve Schneeberger

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode, Steve Schneeberger with the Youth Ministry Institute shares about Nonprofit Life Stages: the first 10 Years. Here are a few highlights:

FOUNDING. The first strategy for us was to talk to other people who had run organizations. Then we looked for a few people who could come alongside us help things get started. We approached potential board members with the idea that they would give us their time and give $3,000 a piece annually to our start-up. Amazingly a number of people came forward.

SETTING FEES FOR SERVICE. The first year we set the price point fairly low because we were establishing a price point in a market that didn’t exist. We then realized all these churches said yes too easily. So maybe the price point wasn’t high enough. When we looked at our bottom line budget, we knew it wasn’t a sustainable model. That’s why we upped it the second year. Ironically, we had twice as many churches sign on the second year and there wasn’t any pushback.

ADOLESCENCE. At about the five year mark or four year mark people were beginning to fall away. Our beginning board members, the venture capitalists, were ready to move on to something new. Then we began to reorganize how we invited people to be part of the board. We set term limits so we didn’t burn anybody out. We took out the $3,000 fee so we could ask people that didn’t have that kind of capacity. We asked ministers to be on our board...

YOUNG ADULTHOOD. We’re at the 10 year mark now. We feel like know who we are and our mission’s pretty clear. Now we just need to figure out who we want to be for the next ten years. So in the fall we’re entering into a strategic planning process. We’re involving our past and present board members, our donors, past students, current students and all of our employees and beginning to think about what we do next.

Rank #8: NLN42: Small Steps Add Up to a Big Impact with Lauralee Lindholm

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome to Episode 42 of the Nonprofit Leaders Network podcast series. Our guest is Lauralee Lindholm who, along with her husband, have been involved with rural community development in Ethiopia for over 28 years. In this podcast interview, we discuss topics relating to starting small, letting the experts direct program direction, connecting your board to your program, and striving for self-sufficiency so your cause can go on and grow without you.

Lauralee spent 18 years in Africa with her husband doing rural community development as a missionary. When they returned to the United States, they were overwhelmed with how much is wasted in the U.S. and how much is needed there. Ten years ago, they organized Heart for Ethiopia as a nonprofit, started selling donated books on their Heart for Ethiopia eBay store, and soon needed help with shipping as the sales rolled in. From their bookstore proceeds, they have sent over half a million dollars to Ethiopia for rural development in the last ten years. Heart for Ethiopia focuses on helping rural education and development through churches out in the countryside, where there's almost no other type of help. There, with a little money, they make a big impact.

The key points covered in this podcast discussion are:

• Funding a Ministry: Starting Small • Letting the Experts be in the Driver’s Seat • Connecting Your Board to Your Program • Striving for Self-Sufficiency – and Putting Yourself Out of Business • Find a Cause You Can Believe In

In our podcast discussion this week, we are chatting with Sherrie Deans, Executive Director of the NBPA Foundation, the charitable arm of the NBPA – the Union for the nearly 450 current professional basketball players in the NBA. We discuss topics relating to her challenges as the first executive director for a foundation that had been in existence for 20 years. There was no real focus or funding priorities before she was hired so this had to be developed.

Deans brings highly regarded C-Level expertise in celebrity philanthropic engagement as well as global financial services, having held posts with Living Cities, AIG, MBNA, and American Express. She holds a B.A. in economics and political science from Columbia University. Currently, she lives in the Bronx with her husband and son.

The players' work is global and collectively spans a wide range, from critical charitable initiatives to social entrepreneurship.
