As we continue to help you get to know NLC’s Key Partners, we’d like to share more of their best tips for nonprofits. And if you’ve been following this particular set of blogs, you already know that we’ve asked each contributor to share something from their bucket list—just for fun!
With bucket lists on my mind, I recently came across an inspiring story about how one man’s bucket list of “100 Things” changed not only the course of his own life but, as it turns out, those of so many others as well. It was No. 26 that did it, and as a nonprofit pro, this really resonated with me. I hope you'll take a moment to click over and be inspired as well!

We also asked Key Partner Trace Kingham of Kingham Events to share a tip and bucket list item.
TIP #1: All teams/departments should work together, not in silos, to reach organizational goals. In my experience with nonprofits, I often see departments working in silos and not in a collaborative environment, especially in terms of event programming. When the entire organization is supportive and behind the event initiatives, desired outcomes are more likely to be realized, and great things can happen.
Kingham Signature Events offers consultation and event strategy support for nonprofits. We work with organizations to review current event programming, make recommendations to improve outcomes, refresh an existing event, or help to build a blueprint for new events. In addition, we support event projects from start to finish and/or help organizations fill in the gaps when resources are low.
BUCKET LIST: I’ve always wanted to travel to England to visit the village of Kingham, my namesake, and visit my extended family that I’ve never met. --Trace Kingham of Kingham Signature Events
The NLC seeks out Tampa Bay businesses who believe in supporting the work of the nonprofit sector as they grow their own businesses. They are our Key Partners, and they practice in a variety of specialties. So, when nonprofits turn to us for help with things like bookkeeping, HR, events, marketing, banking, staffing or law, we can immediately recommend one of these partners and know they’ll be in good hands.
Because of their experience meeting the unique needs of Tampa Bay nonprofits, NLC’s Key Partners are a great place to start if you find yourself in need of their expertise. Or if you need some inspiration for your own bucket list!
So, what’s your No. 26?
