The CCF Rewind
We hope you’re having a good start to the week. We just got through another heatwave in Seattle over the weekend, and right now it’s cool and comfortable again. Thank goodness for that.
So just a reminder that we’re a little over a week out from our CCF one-year anniversary celebration! It’s next Wednesday. Please RSVP if you haven’t yet. It’s going to be a fun time, and we miss seeing all of your faces virtually.
By Monique Curry-Mims and Valerie Johnson
This week, we are super excited to share a great podcast that’s produced and hosted by two awesome women. Beyond Philanthropy just released a very CCF-y episode where co-hosts Monique and Valerie talk about stakeholder engagement — rather the nonprofit-stakeholder relationship, with a focus on those who receive services.
Historically, this stakeholder group hasn’t been given equal footing at most organizations, so Monique and Valerie discuss options for building a more inclusive relationship to those served by your organization and examples of how this is done — both poorly, and very well. Listen to the podcast here and/or read its transcript.
By the way, we are always looking for new voices and new perspectives for our Content Hub! Check out our editorial guidelines if you’re interested in contributing!
