From our Vantage Point podcast - is a monthly podcast that shares expert perspectives and practical approaches to tackling common topics and concerns in not-for-profit governance and management.

As we launch our Year of Abundance, I invited Stacy Ashton, Executive Director of Community Volunteer Connections, to explore the topic: Abundance in the Not-for-Profit Sector: A Powerful Paradox. Together we explore what “abundance” looks like in the context of the not-for-profit sector – and what it makes possible to nurture a culture of abundance over scarcity. Stacy shares how she brings abundance thinking to her diverse community roles, through both a belief that the resources required to effect positive change will come together and an understanding that it’s not all up to her!

the journey towards an abundant not-for-profit

Three years ago we published our second book, The Abundant Not-for-Profit, and issued a call to action to the not-for-profit sector: Focus on abundance, not scarcity. How did we frame abundance at that time? Through the lens of people. The world is full of experienced and talented people who care about community and are willing to donate their time and talent. Engage those people in meaningful ways throughout all levels of your organization and you will increase your capacity to achieve your mission. We are proud of the book and its role in sharing the message of abundance and knowledge philanthropy with thousands of people.
