The Bayer Center blog has been a lot of fun! With a busy and small staff, however, it has been a challenge to keep it up.
We are leaving the blog up because there’s a lot of good stuff on here (and you never know, we may come back to it). In the meantime, we’d love to talk to you on Facebook or Twitter!

Are you proud of your organization’s tagline? Does it summarize your mission in a quick and memorable little bundle?
Strut your stuff at the 2010 Nonprofit Tagline Awards. Nancy Schwartz’s Getting Attention blog annually highlights the best collections of a few well-chosen words that organizations use to help people understand and remember their mission. While your mission statement guides internal decision-making and provides depth of meaning to those who have decided to work or volunteer with you, a tagline helps you communicate with those who have just encountered you for the first time.
You can submit taglines in several categories – for the agency, for a program or for a fundraising or marketing campaign.n Everyone who submits a tagline gets the report when it gets published. You can learn from the winners and maybe get inspired to overhaul your tagline.
Bring home the trophy!
[Note: There is no trophy.]

We really aim to create conversation here on our blog, and to that end, we aim for thought-provoking topics. Sometimes, though, more prosaic topics deserve addressing, too.
Despite the well-known dangers in assuming, I assumethat you think Word 2007’s default paragraph settings are as stupid as I do. Hence, a brief primer on changing them.
- Open Word
- Click on the Page Layout tab.
- Click on the expansion arrow at the bottom right of the Paragraph group.
- Set the Spacing After to 0 pt. You might also want to set the line spacing to Single. Mine defaulted to Multiple, 1.15, which seems pointless.
- Click the Default button. Word will ask whether you want to change the Normal template, thus setting these Paragraph settings for every new document. Click Yes.
