There are thousands of blogs and websites out there dealing with non-profit fundraising. Every week, I get e-mails about new fundraising sites run by consultants, non-profits, universities, companies and trade associations. It can be hard for fundraisers to keep up, and difficult to know which sites are worth reading on a regular basis.
Our goal here at The Non-Profit Fundraising Digest is to make sure that you have all of the information you need to successfully raise funds for your non-profit. As part of that mission, we are proud to present our list of the best fundraising blogs of 2017. Each of these blogs and websites were handpicked by our editors because they are sites we trust… run by people we trust… and each is chock full of fundraising strategy, tactics and tips that you can use at your organization.
The list below is presented in no particular order – we are proud to feature articles from each and every one of these blogs on The Fundraising Digest frontpage on a regular basis:
