A glass half full

I have been lucky enough to be part of an innovative developmental model training process over the last eight months called Asset based community development or ABCD. This is a philosophy based on designing and implementing programmes with a focus on what is already available.

It has been a game changer for me both professionally and personally.

This model focuses on beneficiary or member-led development, where the historical recipients of services have far greater agency in their own development – encouraged to generate their own ideas and plans and most importantly implement them.

I can see you sitting there saying: “How is the possible?  More importantly, how is this possible in a pandemic? I have huge budget deficits and a programme that needs urgent implementation and intervention”.

I hear you. I felt similarly.

Over a period of eight months (with the help of a lot of enforced pauses due to Covid-19) we were able to start inviting and encouraging more self-led development from our members using several inexpensive and simple tools.

Initially, the new approach was met with suspicion. We had been operating in a predominantly management-led or ‘we know best’ style for nearly 40 years. What has been amazing to witness is the change in culture and the overlooked talents and skills of our members.

A core question that I now ask in my management of volunteers and social enterprise staff is: ‘Am I doing something for you that you are quite capable of doing yourself?’

I have been humbled, surprised, and delighted with the progress.

It has given me the opportunity to work more ‘on the business that in it’. It has offered me respite from juggling too many balls, following up on countless details and the pressure of feeling that my physical presence would make or break the enterprise or project.

It has also forced some uncomfortable but necessary changes in our organisation’s organogram. Coupled with the pandemic, certain roles have had to be re-imagined, expanded, or shrunken.  Despite this, the organisation is thriving, healthy and set for growth.

While you may not be lucky enough to embark on a long training process there are many things that you can do to enhance your practice, right now:

  • Use appreciative enquiry in all aspects of your work. Challenge your team to focus on what they have, what is working, what assets (other than merely financial) they have available to them. Wherever possible, facilitate meetings with a focus on solutions and not problems, however small.
  • If someone approaches you to offer a solution, ask them how they believe the problem can be solved and give them the authority to make the changes.
  • Use different language. In our teams, we do not refer to ‘problems’ and ‘issues’ but by consensus, refer to ‘matters arising’. In this way, we inject humour into our meetings and far from minimising the difficulty of a situation (of which there are still many!), it creates a more curious and uplifting environment.

Give it a try and email me if you would like more information –  admin@papillonpress.biz. Happy to share.

Until next time,

All or nothing thinking

Categories :capacity building

Over the years I have become aware of how black and white or all or nothing thinking can make adulting quite tricky… I am either exercising 7 days a week or not at all. I am either eating like a Buddhist monk or a ravenous toddler. Sound familiar?

My work in fundraising, individual donor management and social enterprise at times has felt no different.

Recently I was talking with the director of an organisation about a refresh to our website. After scanning the web for other innovative NPOs, I panicked and barreled headfirst in to thinking: “We are not doing enough, look at this person’s website, it is so enviable, we need to change EVERYTHING…”

While the possibility may exist that a website overhaul is the ultimate answer, my zealous approach may have overlooked the many things that are working wonderfully or allowed me to consider that an ‘all or nothing’ approach may not be feasible time, resource, or necessity wise.

I may have quickly disregarded the great copy or compelling pictures or even how the website has served the organisation in many ways over the last two years. I may have over emphasised the expertise offered by flashy consultants and trendy webinars.

It made me think about how this type of thinking can immobilise us, make us overly reliant on funder money to implement change, or halt progress altogether as we set impossible targets for ourselves. An alternative could be using an assets-based and not a problem-based approach focusing on implementing change with what I already have available to me. In this case it was the addition of some new pictures, additional functions to the donation page and a social media feed.

A useful approach to consider is the notion of Kaizen or ‘Continuous Improvement’.  It is based on the idea that small, ongoing positive changes can reap significant improvements over time.

Kaizen has its origins in the post-World War II Japanese Quality circles and was based on the premise that quality control should be put more directly into the hands of the workers and was published by Masaaki Imai in his book Kaizen:  The Key to Japan’s Competitive Success in 1986.

My favourite principle:

‘Let go of perfectionism and take an attitude of iterative, adaptive change’. Think I may get this printed on a t-shirt!

How could we embrace such changes with tight deadlines and multiple roles to play?

 

Rather than abandoning your entire strategy/website/meal plan/career, focus on what is working by making daily improvements. By taking an inventory of what you already have, and what you can do right now you can build the case for other changes that may require more money or resources over time.

If I focus on making consistent small daily improvements, I feel a sense of relief and spaciousness that allows me to work harder and in a kinder way to myself and others.

This week, try and look at your plans, strategies, proposals, and staff with fresh eyes.  Maybe a few tweaks here and there will make the world of difference?

Throwing the baby out with the bathwater was never a good idea and I hope bringing in a bit of Kaizen will make your work a little easier and fulfilling.

Until next time!

Love

Jane

Papillon Annual Fundraising Conference

Some of our Speakers & Topics

The Papillon team have once again curated an outstanding line up of experienced speakers for the Annual Fundraising Conference. Arranged in response to requests from past delegates, and online via Zoom this year, the Conference once again has an outstanding group of specialists on a range of topics

Dr Imtiaz Sooliman – Keynote speaker

Dr Imtiaz Sooliman

Founder of the highly respected organisation, The Gift of the Givers Foundation, Dr Imtiaz Sooliman, hails from Potechestroom. He studied medicine at the University of Natal and later gave up practising in order to concentrate on The Gift of the Givers Foundation, the largest disaster response NPO of African origin on the continent. The essence of its presence is to bring hope and restore dignity to the most vulnerable. This was the vision of this remarkable South African. Dr Sooliman founded the organisation 28 years ago and they have assisted in 44 countries to date.

He has been honoured with the Order of the Baobab, Silver, by the Presidency, among many other awards. Key to the success of this outstanding man’s humanitarian services, is that the aid provided transcends the boundaries of race, religion, culture, class and geography. Wherever there is a need in South Africa and on the continent, Dr Sooliman’s teams are generally the first to respond.

The Papillon team are deeply honoured to have Dr Sooliman as the conference’s key note speaker.

Lethabo Rampya

Lethabo Rampya

Lethabo Rampya is a Grants Officer with the Allan Gray Orbis Foundation Endowment, which invests towards an equitable South Africa flourishing with opportunities and meaningful employment. Her engagement with organisations that support remote and rural communities ignited a passion for capacity building within the non-profit sector, and informed her view that true partnerships are forged when safe spaces for bidirectional learning are created between donors and partners. In her spare time she provides capacity building support to NPOs, mentorship to girls in high school, and skills development support to young graduates.

 

Topic

Unsolicited Proposals – Turning closed doors into opportunities for further engagement.

In this session Lethabo will discuss some practical ways to engage and pursue potential partnerships with donors who do not accept unsolicited proposals. This is the single biggest dilemma faced by fundraisers when conducting research of prospective trust, corporate and HNWIs.

Alan McKelvey

Alan McKelvey graduated in Economics and Accounting from Queens University, Belfast and has since been President of their Alumni Association. During his business career, he started a number of successful companies and has always been deeply involved in charitable organisations and received the BEM from Queen Elizabeth in 2016, for his services to the community in N Ireland.

Topic

Legacy Giving – how we started a programme … in the UK, SA and soon in the USA!

Jill Ritchie

Jill Ritchie

Jill has been fundraising, training and advising others on resourcing organisations for over three decades.

He has received numerous honours and awards and is undaunted by challenges – ideal characteristics in the tough and competitive non-profit arena.

Topic

Sustainability in the ‘new normal’: How to adjust to fundraising and sustainability strategies to be relevant and successful 

Fundraising, sustainability and basic survival in the NPO space has been tough enough in the last five years, let alone the last 12 months in lockdown at various stages as a result of Covid-19.

Ari’s presentation will give insight into how to relook at strategies as well as consider pivoting services and purpose to ensure that organisations retain revenue streams as well as being meaningful. He will cover the purpose of being clear about an NPO’s minimum viable product, which will keep organisations relevant in the eyes of their donors and beneficiaries.

Reana Rossouw 

Reana Rossouw

University of Stellenbosch Business School alumnus, Reana Rossouw, founder of leading management consulting firm, First Generation Consultants, has a wealth of experience in sustainable and business development. She has 30 years’ experience in business management at senior executive and director level, with expertise in creating and implementing strategies and brands for innovation, growth and sustainability. She has worked in several industry sectors including donor/philanthropy and grant-making. Reana is a regular speaker, nationally and internationally.

She is a visionary and one of Africa’s leading experts in the areas of socio-economic development and impact management and measurement and has received several nominations and awards. Reana developed Africa’s first impact assessment methodology, the Investment Impact Index™, to measure impact and return on investment of social and impact investment. Today, this methodology is applied across the continent by social and impact investors, donors and grant-makers.

Topic:

 From here to there – and everything in between

Social purpose organisations are in a fierce battle for their survival.  Since the outbreak of Covid – 19, many research reports have been issued, highlighting the plight of organisations in the development sector.  While these research reports have been clear on what is wrong with the sector, how under resourced the sector is, how the sector has been side-lined by government, others have been touting ‘financial sustainability’ as the ultimate redeeming quality of the sector. Yet, few of the authors of these research reports have offered any guidance as to how to achieve a new future – one that will be recognised for its value created and delivered.

Reana’s talk will focus on what will be required by social purpose organisations to ensure their survival. It may not be easy to get from here (present day) to there (future sustainability), but it is possible. Future thinking will require reimagining, rethinking and restructuring to show tangible impact and return on investment. She will also include case studies on how to create both purposeful organisations and meaningful programmes and interventions to unlock funding and investment to ensure a more sustainable future.

Seymone Moodley

Seymone Moodley is a storyteller and writer, currently working in the United Arab Emirates. She has substantial experience as a journalist for the BBC, CNBC Africa, Forbes Africa and Forbes Woman Africa magazine. She is also a speaker and guest lecturer on digital marketing and the digital age.

Topic:

Think, Act, Write: Thinking like a salesman, Acting like and influencer, Writing like a storyteller

 

Cecily Salmon

Cecily Salmon

Arriving in SA in the mid-1980s, Cecily was an unqualified teacher in a remote rural area where she learned more than she taught. This experience led her into the non-profit world where, for many years, she was one of a team of grant-seekers in a number of different NPO interventions. Along the way Cecily acquired practical skills (and qualifications) in many aspects of education, from early childhood to adult education, from community development to teacher development, from rural `homeland’ to urban township. She regards making the shift from NPO team member to donor representative in 1996, for the Swiss-based Solon Foundation, as both a huge privilege and a challenge. Cecily feels that she owes a great debt to many people along the way, especially the rural teachers, parents and children who remain at the heart of Solon Foundation South Africa’s work.

 

Topic:

One Donor, Many Perspectives

Cecily’s presentation will focus on the fact that the donor world is as complex and varied as the non-profit world. She will highlight some of the commonalities and differences and give pointers and suggestions to grant-seekers, especially those from more rural areas in Southern Africa.

Melanie Jackson

Melanie Jackson

As the founder of Words that Count, trained journalist and long-time fundraiser, Melanie Jackson spends much of her time guiding organisations in their development strategy and helping them to measure the impact of their interventions. She also trains and mentors fundraisers and runs the Words that Count Growth Academy, a subscription-based training programme.

She keeps up to date with the sector by ensuring that she has a small group of clients for whom she raises funds. Melanie serves as vice-chair on both the board of Positive Vibes, Namibia and on the NorthLink College Council.

Topic:

Seven steps to the perfect pitch deck

Using the popular Canva program, Melanie will guide delegates in creating dynamic pitch decks outlining their projects and impact – a welcome visual addition to the fundraiser’s options.

 

 

Nicole Copley

Nicole Copley

Nicole Copley is an NGO lawyer, based in Durban, who has NGO clients throughout South Africa and internationally. She holds a BA LLB LLM (Tax) from University of KwaZulu-Natal, Durban. (Masters in tax exemption) and is an Admitted Attorney (non-practicing), Master Tax Practitioner SATM.

Nicole advises on, drafts and amends founding documents for and sets up every sort of organisation required by South African NGOs. She and her experienced team make tax exemption and 18A (deduction of donations) applications, and applications to be registered with the Non-profit Organisations Board keep registrations up-to-date and assist with compliance and reporting. Her office also offers CIPC registration and update services, NPO reporting and other services. They advise on re-structuring and assist not-for-profits in understanding and applying the useful provisions of B-BBEE.

Her decades of experience in consulting to NGOs means she takes the long view, is focused on governance, ethics, credibility and sustainability and steers clients away from quick fixes, helping them build/renovate to ensure that the organisation outlasts current office bearers.

Nicole is the author of NGO MATTERS: a practical legal guide to starting up

 Topic:

18A: Some thorny issues to watch out for 

Nicole will discuss the audit certificate: what this and it is needed. Vitally, she will cover what one may and what one may not issue an 18A receipt for – this issue remains one of confusion, often pressurised by donors – and many NPOs issue these illegally, with serious consequences. She will share from her in-depth knowledge of 18A and making donations. Nicole will also cover the 75% rule (or what is left of it).

 Topic:

Boost your Fundraising Compliance

Donors are increasingly expecting organisations to demonstrate their compliance function when soliciting funds.

This session will focus on the key areas of compliance that can be improved within the fundraising context.
