#MuslimPhilanthropy Podcast Philanthropy Friday

An Ask and Answer session of the Nonprofit Show, host Julia Patrick and guest expert Muhi Khwaja from American Muslim Community Foundation and Fundraising Academy, tackle questions sent in this week. The first question comes from San Francisco, asking how to account for requests for estate gift promises. Muhi explains that different organizations may handle this differently, and when he works at the Red Cross, they have a separate planned giving team that manages such requests. Julia and Muhi chat about how to handle situations where a donor casually mentions leaving a gift in their will or trust. Muhi suggests having a conversation with the donor to clarify the nature of the gift and whether it’s part of a trust, which would likely involve the planned giving team. Next, a question if it’s a good idea to have all members of the development team’s goals reported to the group. Muhi shares his experience at the Red Cross, where they track and share these numbers nationally and regionally. He emphasizes that sharing this information can promote collaboration and help team members understand each other’s challenges and successes. The conversation shifts to the topic of board members and their roles. They discuss whether it’s important to have board members re-sign policies annually, especially when there have been no document changes. Muhi and Julia agree that it’s beneficial to reinforce these commitments yearly, even if the content remains the same. Finally, the episode concludes with a unique question about whether an institution, such as a trust, can serve as a board member. Julia and Muhi find this to be an unusual concept and discuss the challenges and complexities of such an arrangement. You can also listen to the show on your favorite podcast channel. Additionally, the American Nonprofit Academy provides news, inspiration, and training for the nonprofit and social impact community.

#MuslimPhilanthropy Podcast – Philanthropy Friday with Nonprofit Academy

Show host Julia Patrick is joined by Guest Host Muhi Khwaja, a trainer at Fundraising Academy and the co-founder of the American Muslim Community Foundation. They answer questions sent in by viewers this week. One of the key questions discussed in this episode is the importance of starting a board meeting with a “mission moment.” Muhi explains that a mission moment is a way to share when a board member or staff member witnessed the organization’s mission in action, like volunteering at a food bank or participating in a community project. He suggests that mission moments can be valuable for both board and staff meetings as they boost morale and help people connect with the organization’s mission. Another question is about recruiting talent from other nonprofits. Muhi advises that offering competitive compensation and benefits is important when trying to persuade someone to join your organization. He emphasizes keeping the door open for potential candidates who might be a good fit and highlights the value of networking and referrals. The final question discusses whether someone from the programming side of a nonprofit can successfully transition into a fundraising role.

Muhi believes that having a deep understanding of the organization’s programs can make a fundraiser successful. He emphasizes that success in fundraising is more about personality and relationship-building skills rather than just experience. He also suggests introducing programmatic staff to donors during various stages of the donor relationship to deepen the connection. The episode concludes with a humorous anecdote about a fundraising event involving a mistaken $250,000 donation made through a mobile app. Muhi discusses the importance of event management and technology oversight to avoid such errors and ensure proper stewardship. Muhi Khwaja’s insights and expertise add value to the discussion, addressing various aspects of nonprofit operations and fundraising.
