Community Happenings: Connect And Respect

Hi Community, 

Elizabeth here to summarize this week’s community happenings. Here’s some of what’s happening:

Connect with a Veteran Non-Profit Community Member to Honor Veteran’s Day  

Veteran’s Day is a good time to thank the 45,000 military and veteran non-profit organizations that support the men and women who protect our freedom. In the comments below, let us know who you are honoring.

Our community is proud to have many veteran organizations as members!

If you want to keep the Veteran’s Day vibes flowing & expand your non-profit connections:  

  1. Click on member search  

  1. Scroll to the bottom of the filters, type in an organization’s name 

  1. Post a personal thank you note on their profile page and request a connection 

Tip: Search veteran and military non-profits to find particular organizations.

Learn about Data Clean Up  

See if any of these opportunities to learn are in line with your organizations’ goals: 

Explore Clean Jokes, Kitchen Syncs & Share your Knowledge

In the mood for a good joke? Shelly Gammieri and others posted some clean jokes at our Blackbaud Community virtual water cooler aka The Nonprofit Best Practices. Click here to read the clean jokes and add your own.


Read and share how your ride in life has been affected by syncing calendars on the Monday Motivation discussion question.

Do you need a quick way to feel good? Click on over to the discussion questions for your product or nonprofit best practices, then casually click the no response button and Voila!  There you will find unanswered questions from your community peers just looking for someone like you to share your knowledge.  Scan them, answer one quickly, then sit back and smile, knowing you helped someone find an answer.

Thanks for all you do to make social good happen!  Come to my profile to find out what I am jamming to and post a link to your favorite song!

Your Community Manager, Elizabeth
