The Nonprofit Optimist is a podcast that showcases positive change agents and talks through lessons that their small nonprofits have learned.

The podcast was inspired by three main ideas, which have now become the three goals for each podcast episode. If you resonate with one, two, or all three of these, I hope you'll join me in helping make this content more regularly available for the public!

  1. Encourage the development of small organizations by sharing lessons learned.
    After starting my own nonprofit ten years ago, I wanted to share information about how to create, run and grow a small nonprofit. My husband has been encouraging me to write a book for a while now, but when the idea for this podcast really took root, I could tell this was absolutely the place for me to start. Maybe someday there will be a book in my future, but for now, I am completely content talking with others in the nonprofit world and swapping stories. 
  2. Increase the awareness of good that is occurring in the world.
    I was tired of the news' constant focus on the negative stories and wanted to increase the awareness of good in the world. It's not that I don't believe the validity of those negative stories, it's just that I am frustrated with the imbalance. I constantly hear stories from friends and acquaintances of amazing good that is happening in our world and yet those stories are never highlighted.
  3. Provide a platform to showcase awesome nonprofits.
    In addition to the stories of good, I thought it might be helpful to create a platform for nonprofits to share what they do and how others can get involved. Small nonprofits rarely have access to large marketing budgets, so this is my small way of providing a space for them to share their mission with a larger audience.

Do you believe that stories of good should be shared more?

In every episode of the Nonprofit Optimist, I ask my guests to share a story of good that they've witnessed. I love hearing these stories and I think it's good for our world that these stories get shared more frequently.

By donating $2 per month, you're helping to make these stories of good more accessible and reliable! THANK YOU!!!

Do you work with or volunteer for a small nonprofit? Let's talk about it!

Not only will you continue to have access to the Nonprofit Optimist podcast, anyone who signs on at this level will have the opportunity to join quarterly mastermind calls with me and other nonprofit rock stars to talk through the challenges and successes we're experiencing daily. (This is less than $50 for the year and gives you a chance to connect with amazing nonprofit colleagues!)

*Please note, it says "monthly" in the tier description, but these calls will only occur quarterly.


(We'll also give you a "thank you" message on air!)

Do you believe in the power of small nonprofits? Do you support small nonprofits like the ones we feature in the Nonprofit Optimist?


Supporting at this level will make a HUGE difference! It will ensure  that small nonprofits will continue to have a platform for their stories to be shared. It will also help make sure these nonprofits continue to have access to this free resource. 


Your pledge will strengthen the nonprofit sector and encourage all of us to be more effective and efficient with our organizations... while still maintaining our strong relationships with the people and communities we serve.


THANK YOU!

Goals
$16 of $20 per month
When I reach $20 per month, that'll cover my monthly hosting fees for the podcast. That means YOU will be funding the platform for us to share these stories, which is pretty powerful.
