New direction for Future Fundraising Now

Well, I’ve been writing this blog for a whole six months now. It’s time for a change. To something way more interesting and uplifting.

It’s time for…

fun-raisin lolcats.

I think this is going to be much more helpful and uplifting for the fundraising community.

Here’s the first post of the new era. Enjoy!

  3. Well played sir, well played. (Although I do think you may be undervaluing the power of a lolcat image to illustrate a point–especially when a creative commons flicker search just isn’t getting the job done.)

  7. Dear Jeff,
    If you’re going in a visual direction with this blog, I would rather read a witty cartoon than yet another lolcat.
    Or, how about most artistic fundraising mailings, or uses of art in fundraising?
    Or, how fundraising has become imbedded in popular culture and ways people look at or overlook it?

  9. Thank you! It’s about time we fundraisers stop being so serious all of the time.

What this blog is about

The future of fundraising is not about social media, online video, or SEM. It’s not about any technology, medium, or technique. It’s about donors. If you need to raise funds from donors, you need to study them, respect them, and build everything you do around them. And the future? It’s already here. More.
