Weekly Fundraising Headlines and Blogs

Last week I had the opportunity and privilege to submit an article for SOFII’s blog. If you haven’t heard of SOFII yet, I highly recommend that you visit the site (www.sofii.org). They have examples of successful campaigns (from around the world) and tips from leaders in the field. Here’s a link to my article, Social Capital and Fundraising: The Connection? The Opportunity? http://bit.ly/ccvyCh.
