What Is Different About Successful Nonprofits?
On this episode of Rally & Engage by CauseVox, we talk with Kivi Leroux Miller about the challenges that face nonprofit staff, especially those in communication roles, how to stay focused and say “no” to new opportunities, and what differentiates successful nonprofits from those that can’t seem to gain traction.
Kivi is president of NonprofitMarketingGuide.com and the award-winning author of two books, “The Nonprofit Marketing Guide: High-Impact, Low-Cost Ways to Build Support for Your Good Cause” and “Content Marketing for Nonprofits: A Communications Map for Engaging Your Community, Becoming a Favorite Cause, and Raising More Money.” She is also a certified executive coach.
Through training, coaching and consulting, Kivi helps nonprofit communications professionals both learn their jobs and love their jobs. She teaches webinars and workshops several times a month and writes a top-ranked blog on nonprofit communications at Nonprofit Marketing Guide.com. Thousands of nonprofits in all 50 U.S. states, across Canada, and in more than 30 countries have participated in Kivi’s trainings.
After many years in the San Francisco Bay Area and Washington, DC, Kivi gave up big city life to live in rural North Carolina with her husband, two young daughters, three cats, a dog, and countless backyard wildlife. She enjoys writing, gardening, volunteering, hiking, vegetarian cooking, and teaching her kids how to bake.
