Ethical Storytelling for Nonprofits and Philanthropy

Presented by: The Nonprofit Quarterly

Join NPQ’s Senior Correspondent and Investigations Editor, Amy Costello, for a complimentary, hands-on webinar about ethical storytelling and effective nonprofit communications. In a candid and practical presentation, Amy and her long-time producer, Freddie Boswell, will discuss the myriad ethical challenges they have confronted while covering nonprofits, philanthropy and international aid in their podcast, Tiny Spark. 

Communications staff and nonprofit leaders will be challenged to wrestle with myriad ethical considerations when portraying the lives of those their organizations seek to help, whether these individuals live in the US or abroad; many of whom are in crisis or have experienced trauma. Using examples from their own journalistic work, this webinar will include practical discussions on topics such as:

  • How to meaningfully interview and portray people who have experienced trauma
  • Questions to ask yourself before writing about vulnerable communities
  • How to report on a project’s failures or shortcomings
Date: Thursday, December 3, 2020 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

CATCH's Home for the Holiday Campaign Kickoff

A campaign to celebrate local music and home!

Presented by: CATCH Neighborhood Housing

At the beginning of the pandemic we saw musicians playing on their patios, sharing socially distanced concerts from their backyards, trumpets playing from apartment balconies, and neighbors singing to each other across courtyards. When we were trying to come up with an event idea for this year we thought, what could bring our community more joy than a little holiday music, supporting local musicians, and bringing music and joy to those who can't leave their homes?

We had planned to host a small, free outdoor concert in Concord on Saturday, December 19 to share a little holiday cheer. We have made the difficult decision to turn this concert into a virtual event. We will be broadcasting State Street Music LIVE on December 19th with parts of the concert on CATCH's Facebook Live and ConcordTV will be partnering with us to record and share the video as well. In early 2021, we plan to host additional virtual concerts over the winter months which will also be available online and end our "Home for the Holidays" series with a concert at the location for our newest housing development on Village Street in Penacook.

We also hope our wider community will participate by hosting their own socially-distanced neighborhood concerts, family sing-alongs, zoom caroling, or other creative ideas to spread joy (and not COVID-19) throughout the holidays and winter months. The end goal is an overall campaign to spread joy while being home in New Hampshire for the holidays, #HomefortheHolidayswithCATCH!

​While we can't be together indoors and in-person, we hope this series and campaign will strike a safe balance and help remind us of our strength in community, the incredible necessity of a safe and warm home, of the joy of music and each other, and allow us to work together to raise funds for our housing developments to provide more safe, affordable rental apartments for our neighbors in Merrimack County!

From Virtually Impossible to a Virtual Success

Hosting Successful Fundraising Events During Covid-19: A Panel Discussion

Presented by: ESC Empower Success Corps

This year, nonprofit organizations had to quickly shift gears and adapt their in-person fundraising activities and galas into virtual events. For many, it was a crash course in how to use video communication and online fundraising software. Despite making this change from in-person to virtual events, many nonprofits met or even exceeded their fundraising goals. In this roundtable discussion, four nonprofit leaders will talk about the successes and challenges of their 2020 events and how they plan to take their 2021 events to the next level. This workshop will include breakout rooms where participants can share ideas and ask questions about best practices for virtual fundraising events. The workshop will be held on Thursday, January 28th from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. online via Zoom.

Moderator: Julie Crockford, President, Executive Service Corps (ESC)

Panelists:

  • Shoma Haque, Executive Director, Steps To Success
  • Dawn Hayes, Director of Marketing & Philanthropy, DOVE (DOmestic Violence Ended), Inc.
  • Betsy Kelder, Executive Director, Invest in Girls
  • Nikki Shults, Executive Director, Little Brothers - Friends of the Elderly, Boston
