1.       Expanding, contracting, adding or adjusting. interSector had the pleasure of working with the Metro Volunteers board of directors and staff as they explore opportunities to enhance services to meet changing community needs. Looking forward to a front row seat as the new vision comes to life.

2.       Seeing the writing on the wall – and getting out ahead of it. Two years ago, Planned Pare ...

Ashoka's CYC to Change Your Nonprofit?

June 8th, 2010 9:11am - Posted By: Caryn Capriccioso

 Applying the CYC Principles for Impact at Your Organization
 

Ashoka’s Change Your City Denver is rolling into my own backyard and it got me thinking...what if nonprofits applied the CYC principles to move the needle on a specific challenge or opportunity within their own organization?   More specifically, what if you spearheaded a concerted effort at your nonprofit that focused on one issue for a set period of time? Could you make a difference—an impact—if ...

The L3C is so revolutionary and potentially so threatening...

June 3rd, 2010 11:37am - Posted By: Rick Zwetsch

The prevalence of misinformation is another area of concern for L3C entrepreneurs. They worry that there is a lot of room for falsifying information on the Internet (whether intentional or not), which makes it hard to validate what is true and false—a big concern for such a new and sometimes misunderstood movement. While many note that recent articles in the Nonprofit Times and at www.fastcompany.com and www.entrepreneur.com have helped clarify information in the business press, and that L3C founder Robert Lang’s website Americans for Community Development (www.americansforcommunitydevelopment.org) is a good resource, they still worry that the wrong information is too prevalent in other locations on the Web:

 

With the advent of instantaneous information, it&rsquo ...

More jazzed about SE than ever before!

May 4th, 2010 8:55am - Posted By: Caryn Capriccioso

What a time we had in San Francisco for the 2010 Social Enterprise Alliance/World Forum. Three days with 700 other people who I didn’t have to explain myself to. They spoke, I got it. I spoke, they got it.  Rinse, repeat. I was among my peeps.

There’s so much to be said for setting aside time to spend with your peers. Yes, some of what I heard (and much of what I shared in our session) could be considered preaching to the choir, but if the choir is a bunch of kick over the silos, change the world, find a way to fund it, future-focused, innovative, creative folks, then I’m happy to sing right along.

The few months leading up to #socent10 found me occasionally angry, sometimes weary and often frustrated with the stale approaches and attitudes I witness on a daily basis.  More than the frustration with old school thinking was wonderment at the lack of desire of some folks to even consider alternatives or new ideas.

The Nonprofit Sector is Ready for Innovation

November 4th, 2009 5:45pm - Posted By: Caryn Capriccioso

Revelations from a recent Ignite-style presentation

At last week’s Colorado Nonprofit Association Fall Conference, a small team of us hosted a session that was a bit different from the norm. We shared a story of a nonprofit executive director who was overwhelmed by all of the incoming new technologies, ideas and innovations. We talked about five concepts that nonprofits are hearing a lot about and are trying to figure out how to integrate into their organizations: the L3C, insideGOOD, Twitter, Small and Mighty Boards and Ignite.

The presenting team shared the concepts in the Ignite-style (a rapidly-catching format you may really want to consider for your next presentation). It was fast, it was funny, it was far from the perfectly prepared and polished session we are all used to delivering (o ...
