Check out Susan J. Ellis’ great article about using the knowledge and wisdom in your community to enhance nonprofit capacity. In addition to thinking of volunteers as hands-on help, you can also think of them as knowledge donors. Your agency may need help getting work done, but you could also use help brainstorming, thinking through new ideas, and simply looking at old problems in a new way. Enter the ‘knowledge philanthropists.” Thanks, Susan, for this great article and wonderful idea!
