5:14 pm srfuller: Talked about this with an ethics class last night. A question was raised “who’s at fault?” my answer was both. #smNPchat
5:14 pm alexandrapeters: I’m thinking that any nfp needs to have a very clear ethics policy – just as they need a gift policy. #Smnpchat
5:15 pm GordonJayFrost: @PamelaGrow What finally DID happen? What was the net impact on dollars & donors? Or was the bad publicity still publicity? #smNPchat
5:15 pm PamelaGrow: Wondered if ya?all had a chance to read http://ow.ly/3Qqim Nonprofit Partnerships With Corporations Caution Leads to Benefit #smNPchat

5:15 pm askdebra: Q1. The big takeaway is to be true to mission. Don’t chase corporate dollars if it doesn’t align with np mission, goals, clients #smNPchat
5:16 pm srfuller: I had a great offer from a local brewer this year, but couldn’t take it because of my industry. The $$ was great. The fit wasn’t #smNPchat
5:16 pm PamelaGrow: @GordonJayFrost Good question Jay. Komen is so big that I wonder if it affected them at all. #smNPchat

5:17 pm joannefritz: RT @askdebra: be true to mission. Dont chase corporate dollars if it doesnt align with np mission, goals, clients…Amen! #smNPchat
5:17 pm alexandrapeters: Board needs to discuss core values, what’s held most important, and what would go against this values. #Smnpchat
5:17 pm KimberleyCanada: I’m still surprised at how many charities think corp $ is the solution. So little funds come through that channel. #snNPchat #smNPchat
5:17 pm PamelaGrow: @KimberleyCanada @askdebra |smart. Some are the same w/ grants – creating programs to fit funders guidelines. #smNPchat
5:17 pm amysept: Q1 Guy-Renaud commented on Nancy’s article (http://ow.ly/3QqgM) re need for ethical guidelines – seems a critical piece to have #smnpchat

5:19 pm petermello: RT @alexandrapeters: Sting discussion for board and staff: what money wd we NOT accept? Who wd we NOT align ourselves with? #Smnpchat
5:19 pm PamelaGrow: @GordonJayFrost But at what real cost? They’re not looking at long-term … #smNPchat
5:19 pm PamelaGrow: @KimberleyCanada LOL I hear ya #smNPchat
5:19 pm Cocoxochitl: Primarily, our schools across the US using the shorty contest R after in-kind donations from #Green industry: plants, tools, seeds #smNPchat
5:20 pm GordonJayFrost: Besides the healthy-eating disconnect, another problem is the lack of donor acquisition in the program. After its over, it’s done! #smNPchat
5:20 pm Debra_Michaels: hi. dev ass @motivatedbycara I think Komen’s previous w/ Yoplait was strong partnership- even beneficially! #smNPchat #smNPchat
5:20 pm Susan_Chavez: RT @srfuller: Its up to us to make those calls for our brand and to think of the worst consequences, good or bad #smnpchat
5:20 pm alexandrapeters: That was supposed to be “FASCINATING” discussion. Where did Sting come from? #Smnpchat
5:20 pm KimberleyCanada: @PamelaGrow Yes – although don’t you find fnd’s hard to sustain. Indiviudals are where the sustainable growth is. #smNPchat #smNPchat

5:20 pm RFaillaNSCS: You’re the VP,PR officer @ #UMD for #NSCS right? RT @DevonRosenberry: Hi everyone! I am Devon from @cfoxcomm. #smNPchat
5:20 pm PhilanthropyInk: @GordonJayFrost Very surprised that $4.2M is the largest gift – they have some very big cause marketing campaigns. #smNPchat
5:20 pm GordonJayFrost: @PamelaGrow @GordonJayFrost Exactly! There was nothing to build upon for future support. #smNPchat
5:21 pm AllisonnTweets: @alexandrapeters i agree with what you say re: Board discussing core values…. #smnpchat
5:21 pm Cocoxochitl: RT @GordonJayFrost: According 2 press, 5,000 KFC restos collected $4,249,539 for Komen, the single largest donation in orgs hist #smNPchat
5:21 pm PamelaGrow: RT @GordonJayFrost: @PamelaGrow @GordonJayFrost Exactly! There was nothing to build upon for future support. #smNPchat
5:21 pm KimberleyCanada: Charities need to value their brand more. Not sell the cow to by the farm. The brand has value to the corporation. #smNPchat #smNPchat
5:21 pm PamelaGrow: RT @AllisonnTweets: @alexandrapeters i agree with what you say re: Board discussing core values…. #smNPchat
5:22 pm PamelaGrow: RT @KimberleyCanada: NPO need to value their brand more. Not sell the cow to by the farm. The brand has value to the corporation. #smNPchat
5:22 pm PamelaGrow: @KimberleyCanada AMEN! #smNPchat
5:22 pm srfuller: @PamelaGrow the marketing team sat down and discussed the pro/con. they wanted to sponsor our golf tournament in exchange #smnpchat
5:22 pm askdebra: @GordonJayFrost Seems to me that Komen doesn’t care bec they raised a ton of $$. Doesn’t that devalue the brand? #smNPchat
5:22 pm alexandrapeters: Agree with @askdebra – let your mission frame who you align yourself with. #Smnpchat
5:22 pm uberryan: @GordonJayFrost Not if you set up a giving program w/in the corp…for the employees…pre-tax donations from each pay period #smnpchat
5:23 pm KimberleyCanada: Idealistic to put it all on the board/values. Important & hard to implement. Need to keep the doors open too. #smNPchat #smNPchat
5:23 pm Cocoxochitl: RT @KimberleyCanada: Charities need 2 value their brand more. Not sell the cow to buy the farm. The brand has value to the corp. #smNPchat
5:23 pm rjleaman: RT @KimberleyCanada: Charities need to value their brand more … The brand has value to the corporation. #smNPchat #smnpchat
5:23 pm PamelaGrow: @askdebra @GordonJayFrost They devalue their own brand yet r suing every NPO using the phrase “for the cure” #smNPchat
5:23 pm alexandrapeters: What you believe needs to be clear before you create partnerships, not after. #Smnpchat
5:23 pm GordonJayFrost: @askdebra @GordonJayFrost I’m not sure. Who determines what “the brand” is exactly? Komen, its donors, the public? #smNPchat
5:23 pm joannefritz: Perhaps the fact that Komen still raises oodles of $ shows that brand hasn’t so far been devalued. #smNPchat
5:24 pm PhilanthropyInk: #smNPchat There is a difference when looking at cause marketing (this Komen expl) vs corporate sponsorship. Slightly different fr beasts…
5:24 pm srfuller: @pamelagrow And we weren’t comfortable with “1234” presents tee off for foster care so we declined…tough decision #smnpchat
5:24 pm GariFowler: RT @alexandrapeters: What you believe needs to be clear before you create partnerships, not after. #smnpchat
5:24 pm rjleaman: Right on! RT @alexandrapeters: What you believe needs to be clear before you create partnerships, not after. #smnpchat
5:24 pm KimberleyCanada: OK we agree brand has value. How to convey that to corp when they see – ‘advertising’ your brand as a favour? #smNPchat #smNPchat
5:24 pm PamelaGrow: RT @joannefritz: Perhaps the fact that Komen still raises oodles of $ shows that brand hasnt so far been devalued. #smNPchat
5:24 pm askdebra: @GordonJayFrost I was thinking from the public perspective. Just putting it out there #smNPchat
5:24 pm joannefritz: is the lesson to do whatever until the public starts saying no? #smNPchat
5:24 pm PamelaGrow: RT @rjleaman: Right on! RT @alexandrapeters: What you believe needs to be clear before you create partnerships, not after. #smNPchat
5:24 pm ResplendentlyMe: How do you feel about taking $ from a company w/ a financial stake on an issue? #smNPchat
5:24 pm rjleaman: @joannefritz but is it the cause or the org that’s bringing in most donations? (I don’t know, just wondering) #smnpchat
5:25 pm askdebra: Good point. RT @joannefritz: Perhaps the fact that Komen still raises oodles of $ shows that brand hasn’t so far been devalued. #smNPchat
5:25 pm GordonJayFrost: @joannefritz Exactly. Or it says the “brand” isn’t about health, it’s about curing cancer & public doesn’t see the connection. #smNPchat
5:25 pm GordonJayFrost: @rjleaman @joannefritz Good question!!! #smNPchat
5:25 pm joannefritz: @rjleaman Gd question #smNPchat
5:25 pm PamelaGrow: @ResplendentlyMe Can you give an example? #smNPchat
5:25 pm Cocoxochitl: brand, by definition, Gordon, is defined by the consumer w/ the help of the “handlers” around the brand. Alice Waters is a “brand” #smNPchat
5:25 pm rjleaman: @ResplendentlyMe you mean, for example, like health-related nonprofit taking donations from a pharma corp? #smnpchat
5:27 pm ResplendentlyMe: @rjleaman Does it compromise the work of an org relative to that issue? Yes, ie breast cancer pharma donating to breast cancer org #smNPchat
5:27 pm GordonJayFrost: @Cocoxochitl Exactly! But please call me “Jay” 🙂 #smNPchat
5:27 pm Cocoxochitl: RT @PhilanthropyInk: There is a difference when > cause marketing (Komen) vs corp sponsorship. Slightly different fr beasts… #smNPchat
5:27 pm PhilanthropyInk: @ResplendentlyMe Good question – can you give an example? #smNPchat
5:27 pm PamelaGrow: Great article on this topic via @BillSledzik http://ow.ly/3QrS7 #smNPchat
5:28 pm joannefritz: public not distinguish betw cause and org? easy for us to judge but something about the cause/Komen that defies any bad press #smNPchat
5:28 pm KimberleyCanada: Corp. Spons. requires a different mindset. Can’t be ‘donor centred’ must be ‘org centred’. Negotiate/protect your org. #smNPchat #smNPchat
5:29 pm KimberleyCanada: No idea what ‘Komen’ is. (sorry) #smNPchat #smNPchat
5:29 pm PamelaGrow: How about an example of a good corp sponsorship? #smNPchat
5:29 pm joannefritz: but what Komen gets by with is not what another org can #smNPchat
5:29 pm ResplendentlyMe: Does it compromise the work of an org relative to that issue? Yes, IE breast cancer pharma donating to breast cancer org #smNPchat
5:29 pm KimberleyCanada: @PamelaGrow thinking… #smNPchat #smNPchat
5:29 pm GordonJayFrost: @KimberleyCanada To play devil’s advocate, why would a corporate donor be any less worthy of “donor centric” activity than an ind? #smNPchat
5:30 pm PamelaGrow: @KimberleyCanada Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer; lots of press last yr over tie in w/ KFC (fast food chicken) #smNPchat
5:30 pm newoptimistclub: @KimberleyCanada What Terry Fox is in Canada. #Smnpchat
5:30 pm srfuller: @joannefritz that is true. In foster care we seem to have a target on our back so we have to be extra careful or deal with outcry #smnpchat
5:30 pm KimberleyCanada: @PamelaGrow I’m sure there are a lot of them…#smNPchat #smNPchat
5:30 pm MelissaAJones: Just joining #smnpchat! Hello all 🙂 #smnpchat
5:30 pm PamelaGrow: @KimberleyCanada http://gettingattention.org/2010/05/nonprofit-brand-komen-kfc.html #smNPchat
5:30 pm rjleaman: @GordonJayFrost being a mere Canuck, my knowledge of Komen is ratehr limited, but I have sense it’s ‘default’ org for brst cancer? #smnpchat
5:30 pm KimberleyCanada: @newoptimistclub Yes – Terry Fox! #smNPchat #smNPchat
5:30 pm alexandrapeters: @KimberleyCanada Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Fdn – huge and very successful. #Smnpchat
5:31 pm PamelaGrow: @MelissaAJones Yay! Thanks or chiming in Melissa! #smNPchat
5:31 pm rjleaman: RT @newoptimistclub: @KimberleyCanada What Terry Fox is in Canada. #Smnpchat
5:31 pm KimberleyCanada: Ohhhh the Pink Bucket fiasco!? Yes that didn’t look good. #smNPchat #smNPchat
5:31 pm PamelaGrow: @rjleaman It’s the biggest breast cancer org in the states. #smNPchat
5:32 pm KimberleyCanada: See – that is interesting. They can do MORE good now because of the KFC sponsorship. AND we are talking about them. #smNPchat #smNPchat
5:32 pm PamelaGrow: Let’s talk positive 🙂 – gimme an example of a good corporate sponsorship. #smNPchat
5:32 pm joannefritz: RT @rjleaman: default org for brst cancer? Good pt! #smNPchat
5:32 pm KimberleyCanada: Jay – your tweet is lost. OMG – this is frantic! #smNPchat
5:32 pm GordonJayFrost: Sounds like most people feel the KFC/Komen connection was a bad idea even though it garnered their largest donation. #smNPchat
5:33 pm Cocoxochitl: .@rjleanman komen’s sponsorship campaign> beyond impressive, even get pink ribbons on plant containers. gr8 for my mom as audience #smNPchat
5:33 pm askdebra: RT @PamelaGrow: Let’s talk positive 🙂 – gimme an example of a good corporate sponsorship. #smNPchat
5:33 pm KimberleyCanada: @PamelaGrow you are right. Some Corp relations work well – just think we need to approach differently. #smNPchat #smNPchat
5:34 pm rjleaman: @PamelaGrow So I guess my question stands, are donations to Komen as “brand” or via Komen as default org for breast cancer cause? #smnpchat
5:34 pm donna_caputo: Good Corporate Sponsorship: Children’s Miracle Network and Walmart, Make-A-Wish and Macy’s (Believe campaign) @smNPchat #smNPchat
5:34 pm rjleaman: Hmm, thinking…. RT @PamelaGrow: Lets talk positive 🙂 – gimme an example of a good corporate sponsorship. #smnpchat
5:34 pm askdebra: Good corporate sponsorship example: @TysonFoods and food banks all around the country #smNPchat
5:35 pm alexandrapeters: @GordonJayFrost indiv or corp, donor or sponsor – how wd alliance/funds further the mission? That’s the bottom line fir nfp #Smnpchat
5:35 pm PhilanthropyInk: #smnpchat Too many instances recently of NPOs selling their mission to highest bidder. Recently blogged on this: http://bit.ly/hbRF6b
5:35 pm joannefritz: @rjleaman You’ve convinced me it’s the cause #smNPchat
5:35 pm PamelaGrow: @GordonJayFrost Appalling really. And the way that they handled it was even worse. #smNPchat
5:35 pm PamelaGrow: RT @askdebra: Good corporate sponsorship example: @TysonFoods and food banks all around the country #smNPchat
5:35 pm KimberleyCanada: I think the best corp relationships are ones we haven’t heard of. They value org more than promoting brand. Closer to philanthropy #smNPchat
5:35 pm Cocoxochitl: .@GordonJayFrost Komen/breastcancer/indus ag/KFC horrible linkage frm a messaging stndpt & I, the obesity guy,would nevr engage em #smNPchat
5:35 pm rjleaman: RT @PhilanthropyInk: #smnpchat Too many instances recently of NPOs selling their mission to highest bidder. Recently blogged on this: http://bit.ly/hbRF6b
5:35 pm PamelaGrow: RT @PhilanthropyInk: #smnpchat Too many instances recently of NPOs selling their mission to highest bidder. http://bit.ly/hbRF6b #smNPchat
5:36 pm PamelaGrow: @PhilanthropyInk Thanks for sharing Jen – great to see you. #smNPchat
5:36 pm askdebra: @KimberleyCanada Or the best corp relationships are where the corp mission itself values giving back #smNPchat
5:36 pm PhilanthropyInk: @PamelaGrow Are we talking cause marketing or corporate sponsorship? #smNPchat
5:36 pm KimberleyCanada: @GordonJayFrost you were going to be the devil but I lost the tweet. Is the subject gone? #smNPchat #smNPchat
5:36 pm GordonJayFrost: May I post another devil’s advocacy question? #smNPchat
5:36 pm askdebra: RT @PhilanthropyInk: #smnpchat Many instances recently of NPOs selling their mission to highest bidder. Blogged this: http://bit.ly/hbRF6b
5:37 pm rjleaman: @askdebra we have similar in Canada, large grocery chains & food producers as sponsors of food banks = excellent partnership! #smnpchat
5:37 pm KimberleyCanada: @GordonJayFrost YES please! #smNPchat
5:37 pm laurie_pringle: @PamelaGrow any large company will have human rights, environmental or other abuses. So define “good” corp relations #smNPChat
5:37 pm PamelaGrow: @KimberleyCanada EXCELLENT point best corp relationships are ones we haven’t heard of. They value org more than promoting brand #smNPchat
5:37 pm GariFowler: RT @donna_caputo: Good Corporate Sponsorship: Childrens Miracle Network + Walmart, Make-A-Wish + Macys @smNPchat #smnpchat
5:37 pm PamelaGrow: @GordonJayFrost Yes, please do Jay #smNPchat
5:37 pm GordonJayFrost: @PhilanthropyInk @PamelaGrow Good point. ANyone want to post definitions to guide us? #smNPchat
5:37 pm Cocoxochitl: .@KimberleyCanada Corps do sponsorships b/c they want POSITIVE attn. > Nike & the NFL, just adopted real school gardens in TX #smNPchat
5:37 pm askdebra: @GariFowler those are good examples! #smNPchat
5:37 pm srfuller: @PamelaGrow Wendys does an awesome job with adoption sponsorships/ grants. Good symbiosis. #smnpchat
5:37 pm PhilanthropyInk: RT @KimberleyCanada: I think the best corp relationships are ones we haven’t heard of. They value org more than promoting brand. #smNPchat
5:38 pm ResplendentlyMe: While accepting $ from corporate donors does not necessarily compromise an organization, it can give the appearance of doing so. #smNPchat
5:38 pm GordonJayFrost: @PamelaGrow @KimberleyCanada But is that so good for the corporate partner? And if not, how could it act as a model in future? #smNPchat
5:38 pm PamelaGrow: I confess that, having worked w/ tiny community orgs, this wasn’t something that came up regularly. #smNPchat
5:38 pm PamelaGrow: But Whole Foods does excellent work with community orgs. #smNPchat
5:38 pm newoptimistclub: Sorry to digress. KFC/Komen – Isn’t it important to mobilize otherwise unobtainable dollars for a cause? #Smnpchat
5:39 pm rjleaman: Yes! RT @KimberleyCanada best corp relationships are ones we havent heard of. They value org more than promoting brand. #smnpchat
5:39 pm Susan_Chavez: @ResplendentlyMe Good point. #smnpchat
5:39 pm KimberleyCanada: @GordonJayFrost @PamelaGrow @KimberleyCanada I think yes. We can find sweet spot through candid discussion. Just have to evolve. #smNPchat
5:39 pm askdebra: I’m sorry, but I have to leave the #smNPchat now – bummer, as it’s a great discussion on corp partnerships with NPOs. Thanks, y’all!
5:39 pm GordonJayFrost: @PamelaGrow True. But they also have a bad reputation on the political left. I think something to do with labor relations. #smNPchat
5:40 pm mcahalane: Often seems some of the biggest potential donations come frm the least philanthropically motivated sources w/ corp support. #smNPchat
5:40 pm KimberleyCanada: @GordonJayFrost @PamelaGrow progressive Corporations know this will work better for them. It is a different kind of awareness. #smNPchat
5:40 pm RichPAnderson: Very good point RT @KimberleyCanada: Corp. Spons. requires a different mindset. Can’t be ‘donor centred’ must be ‘org centred’. #smNPchat
5:40 pm lnorvig: RT @ResplendentlyMe: While accepting $ from corporate donors does not necessarily compromise an organization, it can give the appearance of doing so. #smNPchat
5:41 pm PamelaGrow: RT @mcahalane: Often seems some of the biggest potential donations come frm the least philanth motivated sources w/ corp support. #smNPchat
5:41 pm GordonJayFrost: RT @newoptimistclub: Sorry to digress. KFC/Komen – Isnt it important to mobilize otherwise unobtainable dollars for a cause? #smNPchat
5:41 pm alexandrapeters: @rjleaman @KimberleyCanada agree that promotion of Corp sponsor is not why nfps exist – many pitfalls here #Smnpchat
5:41 pm PhilanthropyInk: @GordonJayFrost In cause mkg, mutual benefit (sale w/ proceeds back to NPO, etc), not necessarily the case w/ sponsorship. #smNPchat
5:41 pm Cocoxochitl: .@mcahalane some of the biggest potential donations come… because some asked them to. #smNPchat
5:41 pm donna_caputo: Part of a sponsor’s value is in the individual donors it can reach through its customer base, EX add $1 to your Walmart purchase. #smNPchat
5:41 pm GordonJayFrost: Why? RT @RichPAnderson: Very good point RT @KimberleyCanada: Corp. Spons. requires a different mindset. Cant be donor centred… #smNPchat
5:41 pm amysept: To go back to something @joannefritz said, it’ll be pretty depressing if measure of accountability=whether there’s public uproar. #smnpchat
5:42 pm GordonJayFrost: RT @Cocoxochitl: .@mcahalane some of the biggest potential donations come… because some asked them to. #smNPchat
5:42 pm KimberleyCanada: Srsly – how are you guys all keeping up with this? #smNPchat
5:42 pm laurie_pringle: I disagree w/this notion that donations must be anonymous to be genuine #smNPchat – everyone has an ulterior motive – even Mother Theresa
5:42 pm Cocoxochitl: I have a practical question: who R some of the best firms out there doing cause marketing & how do I hire them? #smNPchat
5:42 pm rjleaman: Tiny community orgs should be courting corporate sponsors / partners just like big NPOs, but at their local level #smNPchat
