Scale vs Immediate Impact: Investing Resources for Bigger Outcomes

Scale vs Immediate Impact: Investing Resources for Bigger Outcomes

One of the toughest things for an organization to balance is: Impact vs Scale vs Time Frame.

This is similar to the choice companies have between investing in advertising (dollars today) and R&D (dollars tomorrow). There are often easy grant or direct service and impact decisions an organization could pay for, whether you cause is feeding the homeless, providing grants to musicians, or housing for refugees. The harder decision comes when you decide you want to invest in infrastructure, planning, or scaling efforts.

Bringing People and Policy Together : Glasshouse Policy

Bringing People and Policy Together : Glasshouse Policy

Glasshouse Policy works as a forum in the public to bring policy closer to the people. Traditionally, policy makers will attempt to sell solutions to the public, most of which are difficult to understand. Glasshouse Policy takes a more innovative approach by creating easy to understand games and resources that bring people closer to the issues.

Fundraising Overview

I gave a presentation about fundraising at a Team Austin event on August 29th.  The goal of this presentation is A) to help the reader determine which fundraising option is right for her business, if any; and B) once that determination is made, provide some practical advice about how to complete the desired raise. 

If you'd like the deck of that presentation, fill out the form below to download. Don't worry, we won't bother you, probably just provide resources like these or let you know about similar future events.
