I am participating today in an annual tradition called the Nonprofit Blog Exchange, an event where nonprofit and philanthropy bloggers write about another blog. This year I am writing about Marc Pitman’s The Fundraising Coach.
Marc is a reputable expert and thought leader in the fundraising community. From his blog you can receive his regular weekly posts, connect to his podcast, or get his book with tips and tools for success. He writes about everything from SEO to Generating Leads. He recently started a section called Question Marc where nonprofit readers can ask him about fundraising and philanthropy.
I love his slogan, “Fundraising is an Extreme Sport.” It says to me that fundraising is not all rubber chicken lunches and coffee meetings. As an “Extreme Sport” there are all kinds of politics and posturing but also all kinds of victories for the underdog and triumphs of human spirit. In all of my interactions with Marc, he is enthusiastic and energetic and this comes through in his posts as well. The Fundraising Coach is a great blog, easy to read with insightful tips.
