Many of you know computer geeks or math geeks. But have you ever met a nonprofit geek?
“Just what do you mean by a ‘nonprofit geek’?”
Picture the computer geeks you know – what are they like? They could spend hours thinking about computers, right? The math geeks could tell you the difference between the K Theory and the Algebraic K Theory. (I agree: snore).
They know their stuff
The bottom line is, just like the other geeks you know, nonprofit geeks know their stuff – about nonprofit organizations.
And what other images does the word geek bring up for you? Are you picturing a smooth Casanova used car salesperson-type. No way!
Not a wolf in sheep’s clothing
A geek is someone who is most interested in facts, truth and accuracy – and being approachable about it. Once you got to know those geeks in high school, they turned out to be nice, welcoming and loyal, didn’t they? Plus, if you invited them to a party they would help you with your homework too.
Like trusted scouts
So a nonprofit geek is an approachable expert about the community sector – someone who wants to be helpful.
