Video and Picture Sharing
You can post videos and pictures on GNH Community. Videos are increasingly becoming the medium of choice for nonprofits. You can post promotional videos about your organization, educational videos about your field and public service announcements. Every Tuesday we feature a video at the top of the GNH Community homepage and share it with our social media network. Check out the videos that have already been posted for ideas and inspiration, create a video, post it on You Tube or Vimeo and share it through a link on the video page. If you give us a couple of weeks of notice we can try to time the featuring of your video with a particular event or an awareness campaign. The best way to use the pictures function is to create an album. An album can be used to tell a story, to document impact or to show progress. We will gladly feature an album if you give us notice of its creation.
You can join groups created by members or create your own; this is a great place to meet people that share your interest and to ask questions. You may join as many groups as you wish. The creator of a group sets the parameters for membership. If you have a question about a group, please write to the owner (the person who initiated the group).Executive Directors and members with similar responsibilities are urged to join a special forum group created by one of your colleagues just for you:http://gnhcommunity.ning.com/group/executivedirectorforum.

Since the pandemic began, LISC’s network of Financial Opportunity Centers has shifted gears to get cash grants to hundreds of clients who need immediate resources—to put food on the table, keep a roof overhead and get to the other side of a crisis. MetLife Foundation, Citi Foundation and Wells Fargo Foundation have stepped up to make it possible.
In an op-ed for Next City, Beth Marcus, LISC’s SVP for resource development, describes how LISC is creating new ways to embed an equity lens in its grant-making to small businesses during the pandemic. “We needed to use non-traditional tools and practices to overcome the biases in traditional finance and grant-making,” writes Marcus. “Equity is in the details, and we paid attention to them.” The lessons learned have broad applications for grant-makers everywhere committed to social and economic justice.
LISC and the Atlanta United Foundation have launched GA 100, a campaign to create 100 mini-pitches across Georgia before the 2026 FIFA World Cup. The first four sites have been chosen, and the Atlanta United Foundation is now seeking applications for the next round of grants.
