  1. Can’t tell you what it means to me to be included, Jeff. (Or I could, but it would get boring, no doubt.)
    Thank you! So honored to be in this company!

  3. This is a great list. I’d add Joan Garry’s blog where both Joan Garry and Seth Rosen write a ton on fundraising tactics primarily from the ED, board, and dev director points-of-view.

  5. I always enjoy reading Gayle Gifford and Jon Howard of Cause & Effect on their The Butterfly Effect blog.

    For the sake of full disclosure, Gayle is one of our awesome board members at WaterFire Providence.

  7. I agree with you that your first choice belongs first. My second would be Veritus. The generosity of that blog always amazes me — these two men hold noting back and the content is always, always rich. GiftHub.org by Phil Cubeta is the most thoughtful and convicting (and really funny) to those of us who serve the elite wealthy. White Courtesty Telephone (http://postcards.typepad.com/), like Phi’s writing, is penetrating and thorough, I suppose because (in addition to being really smart and knowing) the writers here are not selling anything, least of all themselves. I could go on, especially about thought leaders writing on where philanthropy is heading. Thanks for your list. Helpful to make sure you did not name anyone I did not recognize. They’re all there! All best wishes for a wonderful 2015!

    GREAT list! If you’re hoping for a splash of humor, another good site is NonprofitWithBalls.com. I subscribe to his Monday emails for some levity and motivation.

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.
