Register now for GiveBIG Washington, our state's largest online philanthropic giving day on May 6, 2020.
2020 is ushering in new rules on the federal and state levels that define which employees are exempt from minimum wage and overtime pay.
Successful giving days are about more than emails. Whether you have been with GiveBIG for a decade or are just getting involved, you will benefit from the free fundraising resources available to organizations that are registered for GiveBIG and have paid their fee.
A culture that engages everyone in supporting philanthropy is critical to fundraising success. As long as any staff or board member thinks fundraising is "not their job," the organization will miss opportunities to engage donors, tell its most powerful stories, and express its mission in a clear and powerful way.
Contrary to popular belief, the nonprofit and business worlds intertwine constantly. In fact, nonprofits rely substantially on businesses to fund their missions, and businesses often seek out partnerships with organizations to enhance their brands.
Executive Director Forums are interesting and energizing and fun! You will have the opportunity to discuss all three topics with these outstanding leaders and your fellow executives.
The workplace can be rife with difficult conversations: salary negotiations, performance concerns, complaints about a colleague or client, mending hurt feelings, terminating an employee, etc.
Resolving differences of opinion about awkward or painful topics isn’t something we look forward to, but straight-forward and skillful conversations can help address conflict and build a positive organizational culture.
The topic of workplace violence and dealing with potentially violent individuals is a subject we’re seeing more in the news. Nobody wants to see these tragic incidents – both large and small – continue to plague our offices, schools, houses of worship, or public spaces. But what can we do?

An online board portal helps your board better collaborate, communicate, and manage committees, events, and other board work. 501 Commons can work with you to develop a board portal and train your board and staff on how to use it.
Conflict in the workplace isn’t something that can be avoided, but its negative effects can be mitigated – and valuable lessons can be learned from it.
On behalf of the 501 Commons board of directors and staff, thank you if you chose to use our services in 2017. During the year we provided 1,200 services to 700+ organizations, including more than 400 information and referral queries.
