Next Tuesday's webinar for +The Nonprofit Academy is going to be great. Not only will +Dennis Fischman​ share how to delight your donors with better communications, he'll show you how to do it in less time!

We'd love to have you learn - and quite possibly your donors would love you to learn it too! Sign up for the Academy to get log in details. More information is at:

Nonprofit leaders: Grab a last day or two of vacation this month. But first, skim this list of 62 books and choose one to take with you!

If you like puzzles, see if you can identify the 7 books that are on multiple lists!

STOP! Nonprofit leaders, before you grab a last day or two of vacation, skim this list of 62 books and choose one to take with you!

Plus, if you like puzzles, see if you can identify the 7 books that are on multiple lists!

As a nonprofit leader, you know "leaders are readers." So before you try to get that last vacation in this summer, check out this reading list of 62 books that will help your nonprofit fundraising. Just skim the list and see what titles pop at you. You'll be surprised at some of the books on this list!

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 ...

Today is National Bow Tie Day. To honor it, I'm sharing pictures of people holding up bow tie business cards and a way to get your own for free. Who do you recognize?

I am honored and excited to be one of only 20 people from around the world to be accepted to Rogare's Advisory Panel. As the think tank for Plymouth University's Centre for Sustainable Fundraising, Rogare is bringing needed study and reasoned logic to the field of fundraising.

I'm looking forward to being part of helping nonprofits and popular media move attention from the short-term culture of asking to a longer-term culture of developing relationships with all stakeholders in communities.
 
The Fundraising Coach founder, +Marc Pitman just announced he is one of 20 new advisory members - and one of only two from the USA - to probably the most significant think tank in the nonprofit sector.

The work of Rogare is helping nonprofits, donors, and the causes they serve. He's excited to be able to help more people learn of their great work!

I tried using Periscope​ yesterday but it said the internet connection was too slow. So I recorded a video instead.

Donors can't read your mind! Are you making assumptions with these 2 very important segments of your supporters?

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.
