I think donor fatigue is simply an excuse. I explain in this quick video and suggest what to do about it.

Do you agree?

Today is the LAST day for a super-special discount on the Nonprofit Storytelling Conference.

Go to this page and see how people used what they learned last year to double and triple their nonprofit's fundraising.http://bit.ly/NPStoryConf

Effective storytelling really works! Tickets will be available tomorrow...but not at this great price!

[Video] At last year's Nonprofit Storytelling Conference, +Peter Drury​ asked nonprofit fundraisers: are you a storyTELLER or storyLISTENER?

I'd never considered the difference, but it is vital for nonprofit leaders.

The replay of today's amazingly informative Crowdfunding 101 webinar by +Deposit a Gift​'s founder +Dana Ostomel is available for immediate viewing!

(+The Nonprofit Academy Members also get a discount and special goodies valued at more than twice the cost the Academy's nominal monthly membership! The information is right on the page.)

If Millenials are throwing your charity for a loop, you haven't been paying attention. http://fundraisingcoach.com/2015/05/07/millenials/
Nonprofit leaders are freaking out about Millenials. But they're really not very different from recent donors. Charities just haven't been paying attention.

I'm not sure how LeadPages became a leader in teaching tips on Facebook advertising, but I learn a lot from them.

And they're giving a free training this coming Thursday!
 
I've learned ALOT about Facebook advertising from the LeadPages team. And now they're doing a 1-time LIVE training Thursday about what's really working today! Check it out at: http://bit.ly/1HL84uJ [aff link]
