The Advice Episode: Good Counsel Services

Listen to this episode on Itunes and Spotify

Happy Giving Tuesday! Since starting Nonprofit Tangent, I've ended almost every interview I've done with a simple question: What have you learned? This episode we get to hear those answers. So Instead of stories, I present the collected wisdom from (most of) the volunteers, founders, executive directors, and others I have spoken with over the past year and a half.

To help me sort through the excellent and diverse advice is Elizabeth David Dembrowsky, herself a founder of Good Counsel Services which provides organizational and legal guidance to nonprofit organizations, as well as Executive Director of Keren Or which helps blind children in Jerusalem.

The pearls of wisdom will come at you very fast this episode so I've assembled this quick listeners guide to help you keep track of who might be talking at any one time. Be sure to click the links to their appearances on Nonprofit Tangent as well!
