Still a few more hours to enroll in Fundraising 101. Closes at midnight Pacific! http://101.fundraisingcoach.com/
This 3-part video course provides board members, "accidental" fundraisers - including CEO's and executive directors - with the essential terms & strategy for successful charitable fundraising. Nonprofit fundraising isn't a "guess," it's a fully developed profession. There is a growing field of documented research, academic certifications, and professional associations. You wouldn't tell your cardiologist you thought she was using the wrong stent ...

I can't say it enough: Thank You.

As a nonprofit fundraiser, you're doing what few will do. And you're providing livelihood to families, meaning to donors, and change to the world.

Thank you. And Happy New (fiscal) Year!

As nonprofit fundraisers, we rarely get thanked. And that is fine. Our work is to showcase donors and our organization's mission and leaders. But today, Fundraising Coach Marc A. Pitman offers this "thank you note" for fundraisers.

Fundraising Kickers: You just were sent a Kick on "peek performance for fundraisers." Not a Kicker? Join at:

Busy nonprofit executive directors and board members already know they need to ask people for money. Fundraising Kick helps them get out there and do it!

14 Minutes a Day - Bible reading at the speed of life http://bit.ly/1Hu8ZQH
Life is so fast, entire days can go by without reading the Bible. 14 Minutes a Day is a simple way to get in the habit of daily Scripture reading...or recommit to the habit

Story

Dedicated to making it ridiculously easy to get fundraising training
Introduction
An international fundraising trainer, Marc A. Pitman is the author of Ask Without Fear!® and founder of FundraisingCoach.com, a website dedicated to practical ideas for fundraising more effectively.

Marc’s experience also includes planting and pastoring a Vineyard church, managing a gubernatorial campaign, teaching internet marketing at Thomas College and co-creating 100 Donors in 90 Days.

He is the husband of his best friend and the father of three amazing kids. And if you see him drive by, he’ll probably be singing 80’s tunes loud enough to embarrass his family.

Marc can be reached at marc@fundraisingcoach.com or at (800) 694-7430. You can sign up for his free bi-weekly email newsletter focused on nonprofit fundraising by visiting: http://fundraisingcoach.com/subscribe/

On Google+, he also has a FundraisingCoach.com page and an Ask Without Fear! page.
