Weekly Fundraising Blogs and Headlines

Welcome to those who are new to this list (and of course welcome back to those who are not so new)! Some of you may have found me through Twitter and others through my recent article in a Grassroots Journal email. Regardless, I do hope you find value in this weekly compilation of news and blogs from the nonprofit sector. Each week, I try to whittle down to the ideas and news most useful for leaders (both paid and otherwise) of small and mid-sized nonprofit organizations and ministries.

You may notice that this week’s issue looks a little bit different. I’ve migrated my e-newsletter to a new provider. Let me know what you think!

Here’s a summary of this week’s headlines and fundraising / nonprofit items of interest. As always, please feel free to forward this to others you know who might benefit from it. Thanks again for reading!
