A Couple of Resources

I just finished reading a pamphlet talking about fundraising as ministry, a rather unique idea. The Henri Nouwen Society created this booklet, The Spirituality of Fund-Raising. Visit their website if you are interested in receiving a free copy. There are some really original ideas about how to treat a donor and how to think about asking for money. The book stresses a solid personal relationship with donors in a way that goes beyond just a financial gift. I’m interested in what you think, let me know if you have read this pamphlet or plan on reading it.

I’m participating in the Non-Profit Blog Exchange Virtual Event. Frogloop is a non-profit communications and marketing blog for an organization called Care2. The organization exists to, “connect people with opportunities to make a difference.” Through a network of over 8 million they use community-building platforms such as MySpace or del.icio.us to raise awareness for a non-profit’s cause. If your organization participates in petitioning or social activism this is a great site to check out.

Do you have any great resources that you think other non-profit professionals would benefit from knowing about? Post a comment with a few of your recommendations.
