Hi, Friend! I'm Dawn... 

I've been doing nonprofit marketing and stewardship for 15 years--I like to think of myself as the philanthropic Leslie Knope! I love the small nonprofit I work for, but often found it difficult to carve out time to efficiently, effectively, strategically, and creatively engage our donors to take action and give.

I knew if I could only tell our story to the right people, that could change.  But, first, I had to find the time.  That's why I created this Self Care Calendar and why I write a weekly blog at

If you also love telling your awesome donors about the difference your nonprofit makes in the community you serve, but are worried about potential burnout, this is the calendar for you!
