Don't Start a Major Fundraising Campaign Without This!
Three to four times a year we at Lighthouse Counsel pass on opportunities to take over a stalled fundraising campaign because the potential client is not open to strategic counsel and changing its ways.
We are so keen on proper preparation that only once have we adopted a campaign without doing some research in the form of a planning and feasibility study. And we won't do that again.
Looking for Jeff? You'll find him either on the lake, laughing with good friends, or helping nonprofits develop to their full potential.
Jeff believes that successful fundraising is built on a bedrock of relevant, consistent messaging; sound practices; the nurturing of relationships; and impeccable stewardship. And that organizations that adhere to those standards serve as beacons to others that aspire to them. The Bedrocks & Beacons blog will provide strategic information to help nonprofits be both.
Jeff has more than 25 years of nonprofit leadership experience and is a member of the NonProfit PRO Editorial Advisory Board.
