As the new year beings, I have been busy writing! Be watching my Media Room for updates and links: two articles for Qgiv, one focused top nonprofit tech tools, and one on the importance of social media and fundraising today. I am also preparing a webinar on grant writing for Qgiv in April 2021. The program will be free to all, live broadcast and posted on YouTube.
I am also reading and preparing to review a new book by Barbara Floerish of The Grantsmanship Center, “You Have A Hammer: Building Grant Proposals For Social Change.” The review will be posted on Amazon.com and Goodreads.
During 2020, I worked part of part-time for two nonprofit organizations, focusing generally on grant research and writing, infrastructure strengthening and online communications. I also continued my volunteer work. To read more about my 2020 activities, see my Media Room.
Following-up on my work last year with TechSoup on a nonprofit disaster preparation and recovery course for Hurricane Harvey-impacted regions of Texas, the curriculum team and TechSoup staff hosted a one-day workshop in Houston on February 13. The online course has been refined and is now available to the public. To see more Instagram photos from the event, follow this link to Carolyn’s Tumblr.
Thank you for your help in the workshop last Thursday in Houston! The participants, to my observation, were able to get useful information and network with each other as we hoped. They benefited a lot from the insights that you shared about disaster planning and recovery.
It was a great pleasure to work with you all on the CDP Disaster Preparedness project. Thanks to all your input and contribution, we were able to create the online course track and host the live workshop to help the Gulf Coast nonprofit organizations get better prepared for future emergencies, and as a result, become able to serve more people in need on those special occasions. That was a big achievement together during the past year! Your expertise and dedication are genuinely appreciated.
We wish you all the best moving forward, and hope our paths cross again in the future!Thanks, Shuya Xu and the TS Courses team
