It was great to see Ken Burnett's latest blog on face to face fundraising receive good coverage and feedback. I'm hoping to post some thoughts next week and I have enjoyed Amanda's and Jonathon's musings on their respective blogs. Mark shows why it is so important,as he blogs about the rise in direct debit cancellations.
My main thought - which charity is going to take a risk and try some of these ideas?!
Elsewhere, here are some of the articles that have caught my eye recently...
Pamela Burk on donor centred thank you letters.
Kevin on why your audience is at the heart of your fundraising, communications and innovation.
Jonathon talks about the emotional and intellectual index.
Alison with some thoughts on what is important to donors.
Aline on the brilliance of George Smith's writings.
Marc on how to find new donors.
Stephen shares a great video on how to listen better.
Lucy continues her adventures in innovation series.
Hugh with some more thought on 'social objects'.
Drayton Bird on determination
Finally, here is a feel good story about a guy who shares his business profits with his community and gets back much more in return.
