Meet Our Advisors
Since FS launched in 2003, we’ve been blessed to have an Editorial Advisory Board made up of some of the most knowledgeable and passionate people in the fundraising sector. Meet some of our 2008 board here, and look for the rest next month and, in coming months, Q-and-A interviews with each where they’ll share their insights on fundraising.

Kurt Aschermann is president/COO of Boston-based consultancy Charity Partners, which provides fundraising solutions for respected charities throughout the world. Kurt also is the former senior VP of resource development and marketing for Boys & Girls Clubs of America. He’s a no-nonsense, incredibly talented speaker and, to that end, a bit of a rabble-rouser. If you get a chance to hear him speak, grab it!
Shaw Drummond is VP of Internet solutions at Charleston, S.C.-based technology/service provider Blackbaud. He manages the Blackbaud Interactive business unit, which provides end-to-end services including strategy, design and development, training, deployment, hosting, and ongoing support for Blackbaud’s Internet solutions.
