Reality Sets In

August 31, 2006 by

We’ve been doing a ‘heart and soul’ series over at the Center for Church Communication blog (in case you haven’t caught on yet), and today Brad Abare talks about some of the practical realities of running a non-profit.

We’ve got big dreams. That’s no secret. And so far this community–with the grace of God–has accomplished a lot. It’s amazing. But to keep it going, we do need help.

Brad covers some of the basic ways you can help–time, treasure and talent. He also mentions one method we’re going to explore for bringing in some cash: advertising (gulp). It takes a certain amount of time, effort and money to keep this thing going. That’s the reality. We hope you’ll check out Brad’s thoughts and help in any way you can.

    Kevin, I read Brad’s post and commented there … but I, personally, have no problems with advertising. I know this kind of an operation takes cash to fund, and somebody has to pay those bills. Having benefited from the site in the past year or so I’ve been reading, I’d like to see it continue and prosper.

    I have also greatly enjoyed the site, as just a lurker. I am reccommending my friend E and her compadres at FRANK to you. They take a whole new look at advertising, and are a small cutting edge group of folks who really are changing the conversation of marketing and advertising. Give them a look.
