PMV (Project Management Volunteers) offers professional services at no charge to nonprofits and charities. It’s a very valuable service — we used one of their project managers with The Digital Nonprofit and their help made the process much smoother.
I spoke to Shawn Hawkins, the PMV Executive Director, and learned they are teaming with other organizations like Annex, TMP, Vancity Community Foundation, Vantage Point and others as they pivot to “all hands on deck” to support the needs of nonprofits province-wide.
If you are with a nonprofit that could use support in IT, finance, strategy, taxation, planning, procurement, logistics, trades, networking, transporting or any other area, let us know. https://pm-volunteers.org/
If you have skills and want to do something to support nonprofit organizations as they scramble to meet community needs, let us know. https://pm-volunteers.org/
Who do you know who works with a nonprofit, or is at home and might want to do something that makes a difference? Please pass on this post.
Giving Tuesday is December 3, and it’s a tactic many organizations use to help increase year-end donations. But how can you make it work for your nonprofit?
NetSquared Vancouver’s November 5 meetup featured a panel discussion where nonprofit leaders shared stories and tools on why and how your organizations can get involved with the “opening day of the giving season.”

Given everything happening in the world, the nonprofit/charitable sector continues to play an urgent and critical role. But we face many challenges to fulfilling our full potential. What does the ideal sector look like? How will we get there? What are sacred cows we must let go?
Join Vu for a no-BS presentation filled with pictures of baby animals.
Vu Le (“voo lay”) is a writer, speaker, vegan, Pisces, and the Executive Director of Rainier ValleyCorps, a nonprofit in Seattle that promotes social justice by developing leaders of color, strengthening organizations led by communities of color, and fostering collaboration between diverse communities.
Vu’s passion to make the world better, combined with a low score on the Law School Admission Test, drove him into the field of nonprofit work, where he learned that we should take the work seriously, but not ourselves. There’s tons of humor in the nonprofit world, and someone needs to document it. He is going to do that, with the hope that one day, a TV producer will see how cool and interesting our field is and make a showabout nonprofit work, featuring attractive actors attending strategic planning meetings and filing 990 tax forms.
Known for his no-BS approach, irreverent sense of humor, and love of unicorns, Vu has been featured in dozens, if not hundreds, of his own blog posts at NonprofitAF.com, formerly nonprofitwithballs.com.
We are grateful to our community partners for their support. Give them your love and spend money with them!

Great news for nonprofits who have wanted to provide your staff with better professional training but haven’t been able to because of lack of funding. We were notified by one of our partners and supporters, Digital Hospitality, that there is a limited time available training grant that nonprofits can take advantage of for skills training.
Only available while funding lasts, nonprofits can apply for a BC training grant that reimburses up to 100 percent of the cost associated with skills training programs. To take advantage of this, Digital Hospitality has a digital marketing training program redesigned for nonprofits which would be eligible for the training grant. This provides your staff access to digital marketing training used by large businesses and an opportunity where you can learn from top digital marketers recognized by google.
If you are interested in learning more about the $10,000 training grant, fill out this form and you’ll receive follow up information regarding the details about eligibility and they can also answer any questions you might have.
