Announcing the September edition of Northwest Nonprofit Notes

Like that dense, chewy chocolate chip cookie you savor while eating and remember long after, these five articles hit the spot.

You'll learn five simple steps to make a major gift ask and how inviting donors to be creative with you will build their commitment to your organization.

If you're looking for your next hire, the article on internal searches will remind you that sometimes, the best talent is right under you nose. Then, if that talent happens to be an executive director, the article on conducting ED evaluations will help you develop a useful and effective process.

Finally, we know the readers of Northwest Nonprofit Notes are lifelong learners. The recommended reading list suggests some terrific books to inspire, motivate and make you think.

The contributing writers this time around were Jennifer Weber, CFRE, Emily Anthony, Julie Edsforth, Sara Lawson and myself.
