Time Management for Small Nonprofits

Lori Halley 18 October 2010 1 comments

In very small nonprofits, one person is often called on to “do it all” – raise funds, plan programs, manage donors, recruit volunteers, handle the social media and marketing for your organization, on top of answering the phone and keeping the books!  How on earth do you manage it?

Is it even possible for the one-person development shop to “do it all?”  How do you handle prioritizing and time management?  What are the most important aspects for the one-person shop to focus on?

Sparked by Seth Godin’s recent comment that “doing a mediocre job on nine things is going to guarantee that you’re mediocre,” last Friday’s #smNPchat Twitter chat  tackled the topic of time management, prioritizing tasks, and tools and tips to help you stay on top of the job.

smNPchat-stats This was the highly successful first in a new weekly series of Twitter chats designed especially for small nonprofits – the “one-person shop” of the nonprofit world. 92 people participated in the hour-long discussion, posting more than 500 tweets as they asked questions and shared their experiences, ideas, and resources.

If you weren’t able to attend this time, you can:

Follow the hashtag #smNPchat to get in on upcoming Twitter chats on fundraising and marketing for the small nonprofit. They’ll be taking place every Friday from noon to 1:00 pm EST.
