Kirsten’s Fundraising Headlines – September 6, 2011

“Where do we find prospects?” is a question I often get asked. As is often the case with good questions, I have to respond with another question: What if, in five years, your organization was fully funded? What would your organization look like? More importantly, what would your community look like? 

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!
