When Jenni starts to speak about Giving Tuesday, she gets lots of eye rolls from nonprofit leaders who feel like Giving Tuesday is a waste of time for their organizations. In this episode, Jenni breaks down the four most common objections she hears from nonprofit leaders about why they don’t like to participate in this twenty-four hour giving day. She also interviews Sarah Barr, the Executive Director of the Marysville Uptown Theatre Organization, who is in the midst of planning and executing a Capital Campaign, Giving Tuesday Campaign, and Year End Appeal all at the same time.
