How can you pack a colossal emotional punch? This week’s Power of Nonprofit Storytelling features Wounded Warrior. Don’t miss it.

You’re not talking to your loyal donors, but instead, you’re trying to get through to people who’ve probably heard of your organization. Wounded Warrior again with one of the best acquisition pieces I’ve seen: This week’s What’s in my Mailbox.

The brilliant Sheena Greer with We Are All Children of Bowie. Speaking of Sheena, if you enjoyed her fabulous 12 Days of Christmas gift, be sure to register for her upcoming webinar, Work Smart, Play Hard: An Introduction to Creative Thinking for Nonprofits. It promises to revolutionize your work.

Our friends at Veritus with 4 Things Your Donor Wants: #4 – To Know Her Gift Made a Difference. Read the series.

The fundraising world mourns the passing of a legend. Death of a Fundraising Evangelist.
