The past two years have seen some significant changes in fundraising (most notably, the realization that many donors are willing to make gifts via phone and video meetings, rather than always needing in-person visits), but they have mostly proven that the fundamentals still apply, no matter the circumstances: relationships matter, cultivation matters, and donors won't give unless you ask.
Our goal at Joe Garecht Fundraising is simple: to offer you and your non-profit the most comprehensive and powerful fundraising resources we can – resources that will help you raise more money and do more good in the world. Over the past year, we've been proud to offer lots of new fundraising tools and information for non-profits of all sizes. In 2021 alone, we produced dozens of new fundraising articles, offered a number of new fundraising classes and webinars, and had the chance to answer thousands of questions from non-profit fundraisers around the world.
Thank you for being a part of our community here, and for all you are doing to make the world a better place!
As we look back over the past year and look forward to the year to come, I wanted to take a moment to highlight our 5 most popular fundraising articles from 2021. These are the articles from our website and newsletter that were read the most.
