Starting tomorrow: 39 Days of IDEAS

September 02, 2014
| by Editor |

GCN is starting a new tradition: beginning with our first annual IDEAS issue of Georgia Nonprofit NOW, we’ll be celebrating the ingenuity of our nonprofit community with a look at some of the most innovative work over the past year. 

And, in the spirit of sharing great ideas, we’re also rolling them out here, one day at a time.

This summer, we asked GCN members and partners to share their best and brightest ideas. Many of you responded and we’ve highlighted 39 innovative initiatives that are translating into greater impact for communities across the state—from partnerships and mergers, to engaging board leaders of all ages, trying out new strategic planning techniques, consolidating data, new program launches, new funding intitiatives, rebranding, community outreach projects, and much more.

In the meantime, preview the IDEAS issue, which features two interviews with two inspiring leaders: Doug Shipman, CEO of The Center for Civil and Human Rights, and AFP's 2014 Fundraiser of the year, Eileen Heisman, President and CEO of the National Philanthropic Trust, one of the largest grantmaking orgainzations in the nation.

Read Getting Unstuck with Design Thinking, and learn how 54 Georgia nonprofit leaders came together one afternoon to brainstorm ideas and develop workable solutions for two real-world challenges, and Funding Your Mission with a Social Enterprise, a collection of innovative ideas that 13 GCN members have developed as funding mechanisms for their nonprofits. 

Stop by tomorrow for our first daily dose of inspiration!

The Georgia Nonprofit NOW team: Betsy Reid, Editor-in-Chief: Marc Schultz, Managing Editor; and Tom Zimmerman, Community Editor
