Kirsten’s Fundraising Headlines – June 28, 2011

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you probably know that I have a little urban garden. This is my third year, and each year my garden is a little more successful. I’ve learned so much about the ground, fertilizer, water needed (and not needed), birds, bugs, letting things sit too long (or not long enough), weeding (and when not to weed). I really thought I could just read a book and have it all figured out, but there are just too many variables to take into account.

Here’s a summary of recent articles and blogs related to fundraising and nonprofit organizations. As always, please forward this to others who might benefit from the information. Thanks again for reading!
