Developing a Culture of Giving at OneHope

Today’s nonprofits set audacious goals to make the world a better place. That certainly is the case for OneHope, an organization that works with churches, ministries, local governments, and schools to present the Gospel’s message to children. The nonprofit has its sights set high, planning to reach 112 million young people this year alone.

On the latest Modern Nonprofit Fundraiser Podcast, host Gabe Cooper welcomes OneHope’s Nicole Johansson, VP of Advancement, and Sheryl Root, Partner Database Manager, to discuss how OneHope has consistently stayed ahead of the technology curve, the core values that drive the organization’s fundraising and how the team shortens the distance between donors and programs.

Episode highlights:

  • How the development model for ministries has evolved over the last several decades
  • Creating a culture shift where all team members take on fundraising responsibilities
  • The ways automation has impacted relationship building with OneHope’s partners
  • Tips for strategizing effective touch points for different giving levels
