Weekly Ideas


Each week we email a Philanthropy Counts® Series idea (it takes less than a minute to read) about fundraising, something we think will be important to you in your fundraising efforts. Some issues in fundraising arise time and again— they may be unique to your situation, but not necessarily to development. We can help guide you through the pit-falls of asking for the gift or how to motivate a volunteer. We'll give you an edge.
