Nice graphic, Mr. Telephone! Do folks actually say "I know from past learnings..."? Seems like saying it once would learn ya never to say it agin...

Mr. Chester Drawers...you won't believe what people have been known to say, or worse yet, put down on paper and proudly distribute far and wide. Tony Proscio has collected some of the worst examples of "foundation" and "nonprofit" speak, and you can see them for yourself by visiting the Jargon Finder.

Thanks, Mr. Trachtenberg. Passed that on to cuz Drew P., tickled him proper.  :-)

The graphic is great and the Jargon Finder was helpful.

My foundation is planfully dialoguing with diverse stakeholders to conceptualize a new inititive to maximize the capacity of local nonprofits who engage with the underserved community...

I think I hit on all of the ones I have heard just today in my office. We like the jargon.
