They were investigating NANOE's deceptive marketing and business tactics as well as their fundraising "philosophy." Tim Sandoval interviewed Jim Anderson, CFRE for the article. Jim wrote a blog titled "Ms. "Ethics Matter" Appointed to NANOE's Board of Governors" detailing his experience with NANOE's automated "nominations" for appointment to their "Board of Governors."

Downton Abbey PBS Marathon Featuring Alice Ferris and Ken Verdoia. 6 Seasons, 52 Episodes, Millions of Viewers
Tonight was the final night of the Downton Abbey Labor Day Marathon. All six seasons and 52 episodes aired along with a generous quantity (18+ HOURS!) of Pledge Drive breaks. Alice Ferris and Ken Verdoia worked with Bob Marty and the team at WMHT Public Television in June to produce more than 110 PBS Pledge Drive Breaks for this marathon. Bob produced, wrote, directed and edited the entire production of HD Digital recordings all with lots of b-roll, music, and graphics. Alice was standing on a an apple box for the entire shoot. This is a historic television event. When the program aired Alice and Ken were appearing in as many as 11 million households each week. They helped local PBS stations raise well over $100,000,000 to support public television. (Alice Ferris is the only person to appear in every national PBS pledge drive break for Downton Abbey's entire history.)

AFP Palm Beach County - GoalBusters Presents "Storytelling: Communicating Your Mission With Infectious Passion"
No one ever gave to an organization because of a Power Point presentation. So why do people contribute to a cause? Because their passion for making a difference has been ignited! You can help ignite a prospective donor's passion for your cause through the fundamentals of storytelling. Whether you're telling the story through a grant proposal, a video message, a radio announcement, or one-on-one, you can use storytelling structure to pull the donor into the picture and help them see their role in making your mission a success. Join AFP Palm Beach County for entertaining and educational presentation by GoalBusters.
