StoryBoard HTX Houston Nonprofit Newsletter - March 10, 2022

Here's the latest Houston Nonprofit Newsletter. This week we look at:

  • Are you doing great work, but not effectively telling your supporters about it? It is a real problem for nonprofits. It is made worse by a powerful psychological bias called "The Curse of Knowledge."

  • Can fundraising be funny?

A Nonprofit ED, a program director and a fundraiser walk into a bar.

The bartender says, "What'll you have?"

The ED says, "Just let me run that by the board."

The program director says, " More than we have now."

The fundraiser says, "Whatever feels right to you as long as it is transformational. Did I mention that we can put your name on the glass?"

Humor is an amazingly effective way to make sure your message cuts through the clutter, but it can also fall flat.

  • So many Houstonians want to help Ukraine, but how?

  • UT launches its biggest fundraising campaign ever!

The Houston Nonprofit Newsletter is a regular service from StoryBoard HTX to keep local nonprofit leaders up to date on the latest trends. If you would like to receive the newsletter, let us know at
