August 31, 2018

See how Emily Fink, a member of Sanford Health Foundation‘s Communications Team, shares their stories in this week’s Power of Storytelling.

How are you “warming up” your donors for your year-end ask? Year-end fundraising will be upon us before you know it. How are you *warming up* your donors? What’s in my Inbox.

More on *warming up,* this What’s in my Mailbox features a terrific summer mailing from Kehillah Jewish Education Fund.

How to inspire your donors with an emotional annual report. From Mary Cahalane.

What is your vision of your career destination? Where Are You Going? New from the Veritus Group.

How are you optimizing monthly giving at year-end? According to research when a donor is thanked, open rates on subsequent email communications are 28%-1301% higher! New from The Agitator.

Beware Rich People Who Say They Want to Change the World. Whenever I check out a nonprofit’s website and see that they’re giving up valuable front page real estate to Amazon Smile, I cringe. Stop giving a multi-billion dollar company free advertising. “Society’s winners can seem so generous, until you consider what they’re really selling.”


Is the donor always right? Not necessarily. Successful Fundraising – Not for the Thin-Skinned.
