I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Larry Johnson the author of a new book entitled “The Eight Principles of Sustainable Fundraising”. His book is designed to help anyone in the non-profit sector better understand how to accomplish sustainable fundraising. While this may seem like something simple, many nonprofits are still stuck in what we refer to as “transactional” activities, not long term donor development. If you want to have a successful campaign you must be thinking about matching the values of your donors with the charity.
I hope you enjoy this wonderful interview with a great professional Larry Johnson. If you want to learn more about his consulting practice please click here to be directed to his website.
I have been working on a capital campaign project with a local nonprofit, and while I have done this kind of work before I wanted to reach out to the experts and get their advice and guidance.
I had the pleasure of speaking with Andrea Kihlstedt the author of “Capital Campaigns Strategies that Work.” She has consulted and run numerous campaigns for nonprofits and with tremendous success. In our interview together we speak about her book and the strategies that have worked for her and other so successfully. As Andrea states capital campaigns grow out of a “big idea” and help to springboard and organization and breath life back into the donors.
If you are in the middle of a capital campaign or about to embark upon a big campaign project, then I highly recommend that you listen to the words of wisdom from author and consultant Andrea Kihlstedt.
