Can You Read Your Way to #Fundraising Success?

Unlike any other time in history, there is now a vast wealth of useful information available to fundraising professionals. Blogs, books, newspapers, and websites provide valuable insights. It’s an information tsunami every week. One could spend all day, every day, reading this material. If we did this, our knowledge would certainly grow. However, we wouldn’t raise very much money.

At some point, we have to stop reading and resume doing.

That means we have to strike a balance between learning and acting. Unfortunately, it also means we can’t read everything that is worthwhile. With our limited time, we need to focus on the best sources for powerful information. The challenge is: How do we find those great resources?

Blog by Dennis Skley via FlickrThis is where a newly released list from Joe Garecht at The Fundraising Authority can be of help. Joe has compiled a directory of “The Best Nonprofit Fundraising Blogs and Websites of 2016.” The listing contains 25 must-read blogs and websites.

I’m honored that Michael Rosen Says… has been included on Joe’s list along with so many others I’ve long respected.

I encourage you to checkout The Fundraising Authority recommendations by clicking here.

As Joe says, “Your nonprofit does great work. You need to raise money in order to do that work. You deserve the absolute best fundraising information to help you carry out your mission.” The Fundraising Authority blog and website list is a good place to start. Beyond that, you’ll also want to find the most helpful and inspirational fundraising and nonprofit management books. That’s where The Nonprofit Bookstore (powered by Amazon) can help.

I created The Nonprofit Bookstore to help you find books that will get results and inspire. At the site, you’ll get Amazon’s great prices and service. You’ll also have the satisfaction of knowing that, at no cost to you, a portion of each purchase will be donated to charity. At The Nonprofit Bookstore, you can search for books or browse categories including “Readers Recommend.” You can see the books your peers suggest by clicking here. You can also help your colleagues by recommending your favorite fundraising or nonprofit management book(s) below.

To help bloggers and readers more easily connect, I created the LinkedIn Discussion Group “Blog Posts for Fundraising Pros & Nonprofit Managers.” Bloggers can promote their latest posts and readers can easily find those that interest them most and engage in thoughtful conversation, all in one place. Join the Group to get updates about information you’ll find helpful. You can find the Group by clicking here.

What are your favorite sources for useful fundraising and nonprofit management information?

That’s what Michael Rosen says… What do you say?

  1. Thanks for sharing our list, Michael! And thanks for compiling the excellent Nonprofit Bookstore through Amazon – it includes all of the most important books for non-profit fundraisers to read and learn from!

  2. Glad to see your excellent blog listed, Michael Rosen. It was always a “go-to” when I saw it pop up in my inbox when I was working as a VP. You just cannot read everything but your counsel is precise and very readable.

    • Connie, thank you for your kind message. I do try hard to provide meaningful, relevant information to my readers. Toward that end, if you or any of my readers have an idea for a topic I should cover, please let me know; I take requests.
