Many of you are probably working on some aspect of grant writing and/or fundraising right now. I know I am. So I was really interested in this short article published over at Network for Good on 6 words every nonprofit should avoid. I'm not going to say a lot about it, since it's a pretty self-explanatory piece, except this: all 6 words show up (often) in my most recent grant application.
Having read this, I seriously doubt I am going to eliminate using these words, but I will be more cognizant of how I use them and the frequency with which I use them.
I'm also interested in any other words folks thing are horribly overused or misused in our work. Please add them in the Comments if you think of any!
