Principles & Practices for Nonprofit Excellence
The Minnesota Council of Nonprofits is committed to offering training sessions that support the Principles & Practices for Nonprofit Excellence. This workshop helps us achieve the following:
FUND 15. A nonprofit should plan its communications to tell the story of the organization and maintain consistent, mission-focused, and timely communication with donors.
FUND 16. Nonprofits should establish a thorough understanding of their key audiences and regularly assess the effectiveness of communication strategies and tools used to reach those audiences. A nonprofit should adjust its strategies over time to best match technologies to its audiences’ communication preferences.
LEAD 9. Leaders should actively communicate how the organization’s activities produce the intended change in the community and inspire others to affect that change through fundraising, advocacy, and programming.
LEAD 10. Nonprofit leaders should ensure that sufficient time and energy is invested in the organization’s communication capacity.
