Year-end fundraising is challenging enough. This year, the presidential election will make it worse.

So start planning now.

Fall fundraising is challenging enough. But this year's presidential campaign promises to make it even harder. Are you ready?

Welcome to 2016's first Follow Up Friday!


How will you use it? If I may be so bold, why not commit some of your "follow up" time to following up on the goals for this year? Leaders know that time spent in effective review and planning now can create incredible success in the coming 12 months!


Whoever it is, be sure to follow up! Let us know what follow up you do today by leaving a comment at http://fundraisingcoach.com/follow-up-friday/ or by using the hashtag #FollowUpFriday when you post to social media!

My friend +Jon Swanson​ writes a great daily devotional. Today's included a simple set of questions for reviewing your year.

Why not set some time aside today and use them to review 2015?

What did I like about 2015?
What didn’t I like?
What don’t I understand?
What did I learn about God?
What did I learn about people?
What am I going to do in 2016 with what I learned?
In 2014, I learned a tool for Bible study. And I started to teach it to a group of young adults. I wanted them to know what to do if I didn’t show up for Sunday school some day. You identify a pass...

Story
Tagline
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.
