Raise your hand if you made a resolution this year. Okay, pretty impressive! Now put your hand down if you’ve already broken that resolution. Mhm, thought so..

Don’t worry: even if you’ve already missed a trip to the gym or cut your ice cream hiatus a little short (confession: guilty), npENGAGE Magazine is here to give you a chance to start fresh. The latest winter issue is chock-full of ideas to get your organization on the right track for 2015. So if it’s looking like this may not be the year you actually stop chewing your nails or start saving more money, look to npENGAGE for some more realistic goals to set in the coming year:

  • Recommit to your organization’s brand. Raheel Gauba shares how a strong nonprofit brand can communicate your organization’s mission and values in ways words alone never could.
  • Stop thinking and doing these 5 things. Tom Gaffny reminds us that not all ingrained nonprofit tactics are serving our ultimate targets of improved fundraising and mission impact.
  • Become a plan-ahead guru. Our printable 2015 calendar includes major fundraising dates and tips to improve your performance each month.
