A newly-revised edition of LANO's The Funding Pie publication is now available for immediate download at theLANO Storefront. LANO offers this resource at significant discount to its General and Associate members*.
Included in this completely re-designed, downloadable publication are planning templates, editable worksheets in MS Word, numerous illustrations, and other resources that help nonprofits apply best fundraising practices to the benefit of their missions.
In a recent email to its members, LANO explained why releasing a revised edition of the popular 2007 publication is important:
"LANO encourages nonprofits to strive for a healthy mix of revenue sources. An unbalanced 'funding pie' can have severe consequences for an organization's mission and those it serves if just one critical source of revenue falls short of expectation.
"A balanced fund development strategy gives nonprofit organizations flexibility and depth in resources to best serve their constituents and communities."
Early praise for 2012 edition:"The Funding Pie is a great nonprofit resource to share with staff and stakeholders on the Board. The comprehensive layout has practical steps to put a funding plan in motion...A great educational tool to unite everyone working on different parts of the same revenue strategy. I would recommend utilizing this resource to any nonprofit, large or small."
