I got inspired listening to the story of the Battle of Sullivan's Island on South Carolina Public Radio today.

If you need inspiration, read this quick blog post.

Do you wish you had more time to teach your nonprofit board the essentials of fundraising? I know I did. But I never felt I had the time while running a one-person shop.

Now you don't have to! In this short video, I explain what the Fundraising 101 course includes. Watch it, then get the course before it close: http://101.fundraisingcoach.com/

Have you said "thank you" to a fundraiser yet today?
http://fundraisingcoach.com/thank-you-fundraisers/
June 30 is the end of the fiscal year for many nonprofits. Tomorrow, the bar gets set higher. But that's tomorrow. Today, I wanted to say, "Thank you."

This post by +Adrian Salmon is important for all of us in nonprofits in North America. The UK is experiencing a cataclysmic shake up from the government - largely because nonprofit leaders don't stand up to media criticism.

As Adrian says, "Over the years, as the media realised that the charity sector was a soft target and unlikely to push back, the attacks grew bolder and started to encompass other forms of charity fundraising."

As a result 2/3 of the public thinks that even blatantly sensationalistic tabloid "exposes" are fair!

Let's act before it's too late.

I love the 14 Minutes a Day way of working through the Bible. Today I found that I could click on the same link but listen to the passage instead!

Reading the BIble in 14 minute passages can be a great discipline. But it's just as easy to listen to those passages too. You could work through a whole book of the Bible on your daily commute!

Wow! The people at the Nonprofit Best Practices store (http://NonprofitBestPracticesStore.com/) are having a President's Day Sale. Great prices on their books - but also on the 100 Donors in 90 Day/Donor Retention bundle too!

Fundraising, donor retention, and board development strategies for nonprofit organization. These videos & DVDs help nonprofits raise more money faster & easier.
