Maiden Voyage

Welcome! A new blog, notes of a fundraiser in the trenches during the worst year for fundraising I have ever lived through. But hope is on the horizon! In the form of working smart and getting creative.

Tips for getting your nonprofit organization through hard times:

* Don't stop sending letters to your constituents and prospecting to find new supporters
* Don't rely on the amount of grant funding you've been used to; it will be awhile coming back
* Use new media to reach your supporters and prospects -- have you given any thought to a blog? Email blasts? Tweeting? A Facebook page? has a great post on ten things every nonprofit should know about social media.

Contact me if you'd like to brainstorm ways to increase your donations in 2010. And feel free to leave comments and good ideas here!
