Each week, I sit down to write an article focusing on the needs and trends of the nonprofit community. 2020 has been quite a year — one filled with exhaustion and worry, but also hope and joy. Our readers, clients, and friends inspire me to keep writing.
This year we were curious about you, our readers. What articles resonated most with you? To find out, we looked at the data to see what story it told. We analyzed both our LinkedIn and website readership numbers to compile our first, and hopefully annual, top 10 list.

A few highlights to note:
- Our guest columnists added depth and meaning to the conversation around diversity, equity, and inclusion. We welcomed and celebrated the voices and experiences of Deborah, Angel, and Sophia, and our readers did too. We will continue to share our platform with diverse leaders in 2021.
- The topic of board governance was dominant throughout the year. Readers were drawn to articles on board diversity, covered in Deborah’s guest column and our article on United Way of Central Ohio’s policy to increase board diversity. We shared tips to ensure ideal board placement for prospective board members. We also discussed our engagement with BoardSource, including a preview article to our presentation at the Columbus Metropolitan Club and a two-part summary series that shared all that we learned from our partnership.
- Fundraising through galas and nonprofit operations were popular topics; however, both were written prior to the pandemic. Our article on nonprofit office space garnered so many comments that we decided to write a part two.
- As a woman-owned business, we were proud to share our certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise and highlight the impact of women-owned business in Ohio.
As a company, we are committed to lifelong learning and authenticity, and we’re committed to building capacity. Thank you for reading our articles each and every week. Send us an email about topics you’d like us to cover and guests you’d like us to feature in 2021. We look forward to continuing the conversation.
