Fundraising is a leadership issue

by | Jul 8, 2016 | CEO/Executive Directors | 0 comments

Last year, I wrote about how a fundraising problem is a leadership problem. This post was based on my experience in the field and the experience of my clients. Now that the nonprofit leadership research results are in, the facts are in. Not only is philanthropy a leadership issue, but there are practical things for leaders to do to move fundraising forward.

npEXPERTS - Philanthropy by the NumbersThe numbers in the research caused the folks at Blackbaud to ask me to write a foreward to their latest npEXPERTS book, Philanthropy by the Numbers. You can get the entire book for free at:
