Those in the nonprofit community are always searching for ways to link up with other non-profit leaders and share ideas. Entrepreneurs in this segment of business face huge challenges – especially in regards to funding – and are always looking for new ways to grow their cause. In this quest, there is a new online community that makes sharing a bit easier.
Chris Brogan of Human Business Works has helped launch a new online initiative for non-profit thought leaders to come together and share knowledge. The new community – 501 Mission Place – is led by leaders in the non-profit sector such as Estrella Rosenberg (the former Director of Development for The Children’s Heart Foundation), Marc Pitman (founder of FundraisingCoach.com) and others who have years of experience with the same obstacles many others in similar areas find. As described on their welcome page:
“Our forums are a safe place for you to share what you’re doing, get peer-sourced help and feedback when you need it and to give it when you’re able. Whether you’re just starting a non-profit or are the Executive Director of a decades old organization, you’ll find people here who can inspire you, relate to you, have been you, can learn from you or can teach you.”
Though it’s not a free community (requires a $27 month fee) it appears to be a rich resource of thought sharing. What do you all think? Will the $27 a month be worth all the learning?
