Helping Families Who Have Lost Loved Ones To Violence Start And Grow Memorial Foundations

Black SAPs, Don’t Fear Being Fired, Expect It!

The Alt-Right hosted their “Unite the Right” rally on the campus of UVA last night and the first post I saw on Facebook about it was in the Black SAP fb group. Comments implied that the onus should be on Black staff to ensure the safety of Black students in the wake fearless comments and actions by White Nationalists who have been compared to Hitler-loving Nazis. There were concerns brought up about what the Black staff would do to create a welcoming environment. A few chimed in adding that they were waiting to hear how the university would offer support to Black staff who are also experiencing fear, anger and utter disgust for the “unlawful assembly”. To my Higher Education colleagues across the states, this is my open letter to you. Please know, that there will be more than a few fires this year based on how we as people of color respond to White supremacy on these campuses. Are you prepared? Are you worried about being fired for speaking out against the Alt-Right?

Foundation Donors, Which Marketing Channel Is Your Best Source?

You’re ready to turn your pain into purpose by starting a memorial foundation, but how do you began to market your message? Do you know where your foundation donors are? How do you reach them and let them know you are on a mission to spark change?

Why rewriting your reality is helpful for reaching your memorial foundation goals

Rewriting Your Reality

Running a memorial foundation is and will be very hard work. There is no doubt about it that you’ll have some times when you will feel drained and tired and others where you’ll feel more motivated.  Are you really prepared for all that you will need to give of yourself to run a charitable business.

I’m Ready to Speak, Now What Do I Say And How Do I Say It

A component of owning a memorial foundation is being asked to speak for events, press conferences and in meetings. When you first lose a loved one that may not be something you feel comfortable doing just yet. You may be okay with speaking one on one but public speaking is most people’s number one fear.

How Do You Keep Track Of All Your Important Contacts?

Traveling and meeting other families or advocates will help grow your memorial foundation, but keep up with all the important contacts can be challenging. Your memorial foundation is only as strong as it’s network. To avoid wasting time and money, you’ll want to keep track of all your important contacts.

Rituals for Public Speaking: How To Prep For A Speaking Engagement

Giving a speech can be terrifying, especially if you have to do it publicly. I started telling my story aloud after my cousin Mamie died, but she used to have me practice public speaking as a little girl.  As a child, my mother used to bring me over to Mamie’s home in Chatham, IL to spend time with her. In that time she would teach me poems. Over time I developed speaking rituals. Speaker rituals are the intentional behaviors or thoughts that you engage prior to starting your speech to ensure optimal success. Your speaker rituals will be unique to you and help you reach your desired outcomes.

Start Your Memorial Foundation Financially Stable

Many times memorial foundations are started by family members who truly want to make a difference and see change in their community. They get together a few people and host events that commemorate their deceased loved one. Often times, they don’t already have a savings built up for a new business. In fact, they probably weren’t planning to start a memorial foundation when they planned their first event, but it somehow developed into something large than themselves.

Breaking Down Your Memorial Foundation Goals

When you decided to start a memorial foundation did you think about what your primary goals would be? Did you consider what life could be like once you met every single goal you set out to achieve? There lies your ultimate reason for establishing your foundation in the first place. Looking at it from that perspective can make your big goals seem very daunting. I’m here to help you break them down.
