Being a fundraiser means more than just fundraising. Fundraisers are the connection between donors and causes, the catalysts that make philanthropy happen. No two fundraisers are alike just like no two causes or campaigns are alike. Fundraising is about what you want it to be- what you want to focus on and what impact you want to have on the world. It is only limited by your imagination.

What impact will you have on fundraising in 2015?

A National Study of Challenges Facing Nonprofit Fundraising

Underdeveloped StudyThe newly released study UnderDeveloped: A National Study of Challenges Facing Nonprofit Fundraising reveals that many nonprofits are stuck in a vicious cycle that threatens their ability to raise the resources they need to succeed. A joint project of CompassPoint and the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund, the report found high levels of turnover and lengthy vacancies in development director positions throughout the sector. More significantly, the study reveals deeper issues that contribute to instability in the development director role, including a lack of basic fundraising systems and inadequate attention to fund development among key board and staff leaders.
