One of my resolutions for 2008 is to learn more about social networking. So I decided to ask my LinkedIn network: What recommendations do you have for New Year's resolutions for Nonprofits in 2008? Wow! What a great idea that turned out to be. Quite an esteemed group of people responded and I am providing links to them for your reference. Many responses included a statement of agreement with another response. These recommendations will cause you to stretch and make for much better organizations. Consider them all!
Jesse Wiley - Most nonprofits, especially the smaller ones, should spend 25-50% of their time and resources advocating for their cause in some way. Whether through collaboration, coalition building, political lobbying, organizing, communications or any other means, greater impact can only be achieved by advocating large scale, systematic change and providing services/programs.
