Celebrate – Always

Tis the season! Why do we wait for a holiday or ritual to celebrate?

Every day nonprofits make change happen, most change lives, many save lives. We need to celebrate all our successes – large and small. Make it a new ritual for you and your organization.

New Year’s resolution – celebrate all successes – large and small with the people who made it possible. For example:

  • Staff who get it
  • Individual donors who gave a little more this year than last year
  • Foundation funder who maintained their support this year
  • Board member who stepped up
  • Volunteers and interns who got the job done
  • Corporate partner who sent skilled volunteers instead of money
  • TARP money – if ya got it – celebrate it
  • Clients who succeeded or got better

Think about how you can celebrate at your nonprofit. It will keep create positive energy.
