What you’ll find here are useful tips and insight into how the best nonprofits get it done. At the bottom of this page you’ll find a bulleted list of articles in the Best Nonprofits series. Think of this page as a one-stop shop for nonprofit excellence.

Before you go any further, I’m going to stop you right here and tell you what you really need to do.

What you really need to do is stop reading this page and start taking action.

Seriously – starting a non-profit organization is a marathon, not a sprint, and it takes years to get to the kind of level that a charity:water or Teach For America are at.


But if it’s inspiration you are looking for, well then, you’ve come to the right place.

The Best Nonprofits series will show you the way. You’ll learn how to be more productive, how to get exposure without breaking the bank, and tons more counter-intuitive ideas that will inspire and provoke you.

In fact, many of the ideas I present are likely to get me in trouble with the establishment. The establishment are the people who think the way they’ve been doing it for all these years is the right way to do it, because that’s the way it’s always been done.

That kind of cyclical thinking won’t get you very far when you have to bootstrap your non-profit.

This best nonprofits series is written for those who have to claw, beg and borrow to get up and running.

With a special thanks to 37 Signals for inspiration, here’s to your success in starting a non-profit and crushing it.
