I've blogged about this topic on my site and you might find a couple of interesting examples in the arts, although larger organizations.

The On the Board Theatre, Jumpstart Theatre, and Walker Arts Center to name a few.

I'm as delighted to learn about your blogging workshop for nonprofit organizations as I am to know that we are practically neighbors! I may not be able to attend your presentation, but I will definitely plan to keep up with your blog. As I wrote in a letter to the editor of The NonProfit Times on January 20, 2005, “a blog is humanizing, engaging and empowering. It is an addictive, grassroots communications platform with an incredibly high trust factor. A blog involves its constituency by providing the opportunity to respond almost instantly to any and all organizational news and information. It allows a nonprofit to draw out invaluable feedback, establishing a mutually-beneficial dialogue with donors, prospects and friends, increasing the potential for more successful fundraising, activism, participation and volunteerism.? Good luck on November 9th!!!
