Your donors want to see some results before they'll give again. And you know that producing an annual report is a nonprofit management best practice. But that doesn't mean you have to write and design a 20+ page tome. In fact, many donors say they'd prefer something much shorter, clearer, and more direct. They much rather see one of several print and online formats that we consider the new and improved nonprofit annual report.

Over at the Society Hill Playhouse the other night, Tom Tansey had his lines memorized. They were not many, but his role was a critical one. "This is your ticket for the show," he said, with a practiced cadence, adding quickly: "We're not quite done with you yet." Then the narrative turn: "This is your ticket for your pie, which you can get right behind me." And the denouement: "This is your ticket for your pint, which you can get in the lobby. You're welcome to bring all of it into the theater." Talk about a warm welcome!

"And we also had dog snacks to give out," says Bill D'Agostino, the company's communications director. "So both species got a treat."
