Gang, I think it’s safe to say: this is not your typical summer.
Coronavirus continues to run rampant in the country (if you’re in the US). We’re still somewhat in a lockdown, and things are a little chaotic!
Still, I’ve always found summer to be the best time to slow down and get organized. That’s especially true when it comes to the database: this is when I begin wrapping my head around all the projects I keep putting off!
This week, I teamed up with prospect researcher Joan Ogwumike to share tips on what what makes for a great fundraiser/database manager working relationship. Check it out over on her blog, A Researcher’s Diary!
Nonprofits are scrambling to keep their programs running. On a personal level, many of us are bracing for what’s to come with this pandemic. So it’s really no surprise that the org database is the last thing on anyone’s mind…except for us.
By “us”, I mean anyone who leads on data or systems thinking for a nonprofit: database coordinators, Salesforce admins, accidental admins, data managers, and the lot.
