Joe Garecht must have a crystal ball. It’s only February, and he can already say which are the best fundraising blogs for you to read this year!
Seriously, though, what Joe has published on The Fundraising Digest is a great list (and I don’t say that only because this blog is on it). Joe has included some of my personal favorites, including these ten:
Beth Ann Locke – Donor-centered fundraising “with a heart.”
Communicate! – by yours truly, Dennis Fischman, with Fundraising Tuesday, Thank-You Thursday, and Marketing (and Miscellaneous) Monday posts.
Concord Leadership Group (Marc A. Pitman)– Articles and podcasts on best practices for non-profit leaders.
Fired Up Fundraising (Gail Perry)– Fundraising ideas and tips with a special focus on major donors and capital campaigns.
Get Fully Funded (Sandy Rees)– General fundraising strategy, tips and tools.
Hands-On Fundraising (Mary Cahalane)– Thoughtful strategies for fundraising planning, donor communications and more.
John Haydon – Online fundraising and marketing for non-profits.
Kivi’s Non-Profit Communications Blog (Kivi Leroux Miller)– Better donor communications for non-profit organizations.
Pamela Grow – Strategy and tips for small fundraising shops.
The Storytelling Non-Profit (Vanessa Chase Lockshin)– How to tell great stories about your work to donors, volunteers, and more.
There are other blogs I know and enjoy on Joe’s list, plus several new ones that intrigue me. I recommend you check it out. Perhaps try reading one new blog a day for the next few weeks, and settle on your favorites?
