The 15 Best #NonprofitPickupLines Tweets

Jeff Gordy

Something big happened this week: #NonprofitPickupLines.

Earlier this week, Vu Le wrote about dating in the nonprofit sector on the always hilarious Nonprofit with Balls blog:

“Sure, you may have kickass pickup lines like, “Does RFP stand for ‘Really Fine Person?’ You’re definitely an RFP to me” or “So, you’re a program officer, huh? Well, you better arrest yourself, officer, because you just stole my heart” (#nonprofitpickuplines, go make that trend on Twitter).”

Sure enough, fellow nonprofit nerds took to Twitter to share their own #NonprofitPickupLines. Who knew the nonprofit community was full of comedians? 😉

Here are some of our favorites:


1. I see what you did there.


2. You know it’s real when…


3. So. True.


4. The 990 tells all.



5. U n r e s t i c t e d.


6. 😉


7. When you want to show them you’re serious.


8. When meeting the board > meeting the parents.


9. ¯_(ツ)_/¯


10. Ha. Punny.


11. Magic word = “pro-bono”


12. Remember, retention is key.


13. This one is…a little too real.


14. Nothing says commitment like a recurring donation.


15. Year-end appeal writers, take notes.
