How Leaky Is Your Bucket?

Even some of the finest fund development programs have leaks—pockets of inefficiency that, left unaddressed, will continue to reduce the support the nonprofit organization receives from its fundraising program.

Book Spotlight: An Uncomplicated Life

In An Uncomplicated Life, the parent learns as much about life from the child as the child does from the parent. Through her unmitigated love for others, her sparkling charisma, and her boundless capacity for joy, Jillian has inspired those around her to live better and more fully. The day Jillian was born, Paul says, was the last bad day. As he lovingly writes, “Jillian is a soul map of our best intentions”—a model of grace, boundless joy, and love for all of us.

The author, Paul Daugherty, has been a sports columnist for the Cincinnati Enquirer since 1994. He has covered nearly every major American sporting event, as well as five Summer Olympic Games.  He is the author of Fair Game, a collection of his sports columns, and coauthor of books with Chad Johnson and Johnny Bench.  He blogs daily at The Morning Line on  He lives in Loveland, Ohio, with his wife, Kerry. The book was released in March by Harper Collins Publishers and can be purchased in hardcover or e-book form through various outlets.

I want to tell you what WONDERFUL time I had at the conference. I learned so much and came away with lots of ideas for our organization. -Barb Waddle, The Upside of Downs of Northeast Ohio
