Charting your course
By Mollie O'Hara Butler, CFRE
It’s the time of year when I am frequently contacted by recent college graduates.  They are looking for their dream jobs or just figuring out what their dream looks like.  This year I had the wonderful opportunity to speak with an entire class of graduating seniors (and a handful of ambitious juniors).  Hannah Nokes, Vice President of Development and Marketing for Leadership Austin and adjunct professor at St. Edward’s University, asked me to guest lecture in her non-profit management class.  I shared the following advice with the seniors and wished them the best of luck on their job searches in the non-profit community.  Perhaps it will help the recent graduate in your family or neighborhood!   Read more...n>

Common mistakes fundraisers can make
By Michael Bacon, CFRE
Chris Cheever, vice president of San Antonio's Broadway Bank, and I recently presented a seminar for the San Antonio Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals.  Our session focused on some common fundraising mistakes that we've all made from time to time.  Chris spoke from the standpoint of a donor and his surprise at some of the mistakes he has seen.  I spoke as someone who has made some of those very mistakes!

Bacon Lee can mentor your staff

When new nonprofit Executive Directors and staff members need someone to turn to with questions and concerns, we at Bacon Lee & Associates can be the answer.  Serving as mentors, we ask essential questions to help new staff focus on what your organization needs now and in the future, and we assist new leaders in quickly taking the helm by helping them understand the ‘matrix’ of board responsibilities, staff responsibilities, and expectations for both.  We help your new staff members gain confidence and expertise in leading and managing volunteers and successfully mastering a “checklist for success.”  Call us today for more information on how we can serve as mentors for your new nonprofit manager.
