Posted By Denise McMahan, CausePlanet, Tuesday, August 20, 2013

Leave Shakespeare out of your planned giving

Posted By Denise McMahan, CausePlanet, Thursday, July 25, 2013


"If planned giving is so good for both nonprofit organizations and the donors who support them, why don't more organizations have a planned giving program?” asks author Michael Rosen in Donor-Centered Planned Gift Marketing. This book addresses all the myths about ...

New book summary: Engage the "next greatest generation"

Posted By Denise McMahan, CausePlanet, Thursday, July 11, 2013

 

 


"Even though Millennials are the next generation of donors and constituents, leaders spend far more resources focused on maintaining their existing supporters rather than trying to cultivate new ones—so much so, that they cannot see beyond their current donor strategies and systems to a future where those supporters are no longer around,” assert the...

Uncover new donors by creating economic value

Posted By Denise McMahan, CausePlanet, Wednesday, May 8, 2013

"To be market driven, you have to determine who your customer is."

"And interestingly enough, it may not be the people your organization is dedicated to serve--your clients. Your customer is the one group from among all your stakeholders who, more than anyone else, determines your survival and your success.”

 

Steve Rothschild's seven principles of success in his book The NON Nonprofit are rooted in his revelation of consistent methods he has implemented as an accomplished business leader in a Fortune 100 company and as a CEO of a thriving nonprofit ...

Don't forget to register for our live author interview with fundraising expert Cheryl Clarke

Posted By Denise McMahan, CausePlanet, Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Live author interview and free book summary of "Storytelling for Grantseekers"

Posted By Denise McMahan, CausePlanet, Tuesday, April 9, 2013

 

"Nonprofit seeks captivating storyteller…” instead of "Nonprofit seeks grant writer…” is the kind of job posting our latest featured author,
Cheryl Clarke, would highly approve of.

Clarke recently released the second edition of her popular book Storytelling for Grantseekers: A Guide to Creative Nonprofit Fundraising . It's chock full of useful techniques for nonprofit communications of any kind—from newsletters and appeals to annual reports and, of course, grants.

No one wants to read a horrible grant proposal. Why should...
