So…I have only completed 2/3 of Scott Britton’s course “Master Gmail to Be 10x More Productive.” Still, to Scott’s own admission, not many more than 10% of online course takers get beyond this point. O’ boy, I feel pretty good. Allow me to pat myself on the back. Join me in getting past the 10% with the discount code, ‘nonprofitsrock’

Hey there members — have you ever forgotten about a deadline, failed to check in with someone or lost a ‘to do’ list? A tech startup from Boston has created, Followup.cc, to solve this productivity problem. Through any email client, Followup.cc will automate a reminder over which you have complete control. In other words, the email you use to confirm that appointment or set up that meeting will be the very same email that appears in your inbox at your preferred time, reminding you of what to do, who to think of etc…simply enter in the time (ex. 6.30AM@followup.cc) in the cc field of the email. The recipient of the email and you will receive the email in your respective inboxes. If you do not want the recipient to have the reminder, then enter the reminder’s time in the bcc field.

Grassroots.org, in tradition with bringing free services for charities, introduced its second Capacity Building Initiative. Once again helmed by our fantastic lead volunteer, Parag Khandelwal, professionals at the Boston based event motored through seven projects. Each time we have run the CBI event more projects have been able to be accomplished and we are sure the future will be no different. More nonprofits shall be helped to clear away projects that present small challenges so that they may strengthen their organizations.
Last week, Grassroots.org attended this year’s Net Impact Conference at the Baltimore Convention Center located in Downtown Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. The event included over 100 exhibitors, over 300 speakers and 25,000 attendees. Grassroots.org was promoting one of our free services for nonprofits, our Project Consulting service. The program is run through Changetheworld.org in junction with our partner at the University of Maryland, the Center for Social Value Creation. We enjoyed speaking with all the students, businesses and universities about the program and seeing how excited people became about Grassroots.org and our mission. We are hoping to leverage some of connections we made to help grow our program and provide the service more effectively and to a larger number or our members!
