What is Blue Avocado?
Blue Avocado speaks for and to the people in community-based nonprofits.
Blue Avocado is an online magazine fueled by a monthly newsletter designed to provide practical, tactical tips and tools to nonprofit leaders. A small but mighty team of committed social sector leaders produces the publication, enlisting content from a wide range of practitioners, funders, and experts.
Blue Avocado believe that there is plenty of wisdom and knowledge among the leaders and staff of the community-based nonprofits themselves. We just need a place through which to share it. Blue Avocado is that place.
What to expect.
Expect a weekly email delivered to your inbox with an article covering practical tips and advice that directly relates to nonprofit organizations like yours.
At home, you don’t use fancy language. So at Blue Avocado we don’t talk in the abstract jargon that dominates our sector and deadens our senses. So apologies if some of the pieces are overly blunt or direct; but hey, that’s family.
Above all, our aim is to provide practical information and insights that are easy to understand, easy to implement, and that improve your effectiveness and impact.
Will Blue Avocado spam your inbox with emails?
No, Blue Avocado publishes weekly through an HTML newsletter delivered to 65,000+ subscribers.
Subscriptions are free thanks to our donors, advertising support, and especially due to the critical support of our publisher, Nonprofits Insurance Alliance, a group of cooperative 501(c)(3) nonprofit insurance organizations that provide fairly-priced liability insurance and risk management resources exclusively to other 501(c)(3) nonprofits.
What makes Blue Avocado unique?
There are a lot of “experts” trying to tell small- and mid-sized nonprofits how to operate. Funders, governments, university professors, and the nonprofit consulting industry all have plenty of advice directed at nonprofits about how we can be better, smarter, more efficient, more effective, and do more with less.
Blue Avocado believes that nonprofits can only be vibrant, healthy, and effective when they have access to financial resources and practical know-how shared by experts and peers. So welcome home.
