Best FundRaising Blog
With no less than 15 nominations, Clairification.com by fundraising consultant Claire Axelrad apparently is taking the fundraising blogosphere by storm. What people are saying:
“Claire is a philanthropy guru, and I am a fan and proud follower. Her blog posts are timely, informative, engaging, helpful and easy to understand.” — Wendy Rothenberg, director of development, JVS
“That she is willing to share her considerable knowledge and can write in the same clear, to-the-point way that mirrors what we should all be doing when we reach out to our donors is a real boon.” — Janice Prudhomme, executive director, NCJW, San Francisco Section
“Claire’s innovative thinking often turns outmoded and cliched concepts around in a surprising, new vision. I find that I learn from Claire’s research and innovative thinking via her creative, engaging blog and her ability to synthesize a wide variety of information and source material. I always feel refreshed and inspired to go back and tackle my design communication projects.” — Elaine Michaud, senior graphic designer, Jewish Family and Children’s Services of San Francisco, the Peninsula, Marin and Sonoma Counties
FS Senior Editor Joe Boland and I agree we wanted to give Special Mention to the 101fundraising blog. This internationally crowdsourced blog came out strong and just keeps getting better. The global insights from some of the world’s most innovative and thoughtful fundraisers are always a pleasure to read. With contributors weighing in from all over the world and representing every type of mission, organization and job title, you just never know what you’re going to get on this blog — other than well-written, informative and entertaining insights on fundraising, that is!
