Fundraising Reading Round-Up

Here the latest round-up of fundraising articles for you to enjoy.

If you'd like updates of the best posts on fundraising on a more regular basis, then I'm helping Reinier from 101 Fundraising with his new Fundraising Fever Facebook page.

We'll be listing our favourite posts throughout the week, so it's a great place to check if you want a quick read and have a few minutes spare. We're looking for some in the US or Canada to help us out as well, so get in touch if you're interested.

Plug over, here is this week's round-up. Enjoy.
