Welcome to The Other Bottom Line!

This blog is dedicated to those who work in the Non-Profit Sector and the wonderful communities that support their work.

With a focus on building relationships and making the best use of the time, talents and treasures of like-minded individuals united in fulfilling a Non-Profit’s mission, The Other Bottom Line will be the springboard to meaningful discussions about engaging communities.

The Other Bottom Line is born on the premise that although being fiscally viable is important, engaging with, and recognizing the valuable contributions of supporting people in our respective communities is equally important.

In fact, the latter is crucial to the success of the former.

Together we will explore who our community is, why our community is important, recognize and value the gifts brought to the table by people in our community and empower them to change the world by using their gifts.

We’ll talk about what it means to build relationships with community (staff, donors and volunteers). We’ll talk about why it’s important for each community member to know how he/she fits into, and contributes to the the organization’s mission.

I look forward to our journey together and growing engaged communities with you,

Diana Schwenk

    Well done Diana! I am eager to learn lots from you here, and to see how my family’s donation dollars and hours can best serve our community. I’m so happy you included the link here in your other blog so that I could find my way over here. I’m sorry for having missed it for so long, but am glad I’m here now. I’m excited to cheer you on, and – like I mentioned – learn how best to donate time and money to the non-profits we love and support.
    Cheers, Gina
