The Inspiration Issue – Part 1
Engage supporters, attract new donors, generate revenue, embrace social media, stand out from the crowd.
When it comes to fundraising, I’m sure at times it seems to all of us in the ever-evolving not-for-profit world that we are treading water – or at best, being pulled along by the current. Long gone are the days when we just sent out a mailing, hoped some cheques would appear and our work was done. Today, we can meet over coffee, send an email, post on YouTube or Instagram, stream on Facebook Live, Tweet, or all of the above. We can also still host an event, make a call, buy an ad and yes…even send out a mailing.
We are often asked about the most innovative and creative ways that funds are being raised and stakeholders are being engaged today. And so, we have searched the world for 30 of what we feel are the most original, creative, successful ideas in fundraising and constituency engagement. We are delighted to share the first 15 ideas in this Edition. Some of them will be familiar to you, but I’m betting one of them could inspire your next big idea.
