Kirsten’s Fundraising Headlines – August 9, 2011

Here’s a sneak preview from Chapter Three of my new book. It’s still in editing, but I’m hoping to have it completed by the end of the year!

Harold J Seymour, noted fund-raising pioneer, said: “The case statement is the definitive piece of the whole campaign. It tells all that needs to be told, answers all the important questions, reviews the arguments for support, explains the proposed plan for raising the money, and shows how gifts may be made, and who the people are who vouch for the project, and who will give it leadership and direction.” That’s a lot for one document to do. 

Thanks for following! Below is a summary of articles and blogs from the past week related to fundraising and nonprofit organizations. As always, please forward this to others who might benefit from the information. Hope you have a fabulous week!
