About the Fundraising Authority
I started the Fundraising Authority to help non-profits fund work that matters… to offer them absolute best information and counsel on how to raise money for their organization, no matter how small or large.
Online Resources from TheFundraisingAuthority.com
In looking for good fundraising information online, I noticed that the vast majority of fundraising sites were either hopelessly unprofessional or outdated, or were sales sites designed with very little information. That’s why I started TheFundraisingAuthority.com — to offer professional tools and information to charitable organizations of all sizes.
I know how hard it can be to raise money — I also know how important it is to have access to great information on fundraising techniques, ideas, and strategies. The Fundraising Authority is, hands down, the web’s best source of fundraising information for non-profit organizations.
My goal is to use this website to provide you with the absolute best fundraising information available, so that your organization can continue to fund its mission. Be sure to check out our Fundraising Basics and Article Archives, as well as our free weekly newsletter. You can get updates from The Fundraising Authority through LinkedIn by following us. If you’re on Twitter, you can also get daily fundraising tips: @FundraisingAuth.
My name is Joe Garecht, and I have been involved in professional fundraising for over a decade. During that time, I have worked with organizations large and small, helping them design profitable fundraising plans, implement new fundraising strategies, and super-charge their development efforts.
I am the creator of the “Rapid Growth Fundraising” formula, and the author of The Silent Auction Handbook: A Step-by-Step Guide to Holding a Successful Silent Auction, as well as How to Raise More Money for Any Non-Profit.
I’ve been privileged to work with some fantastic organizations and campaigns, raising four, five, and six-figure gifts, holding major fundraising events, managing direct mail campaigns, and building successful major donor groups. Previously, I served as the Executive Director of BLOCS, as the Director of Development for The Philadelphia Children’s Alliance, and as a consultant to fundraising organizations internationally.
I have also worked with dozens of political campaigns during my career to help them raise the money they need to win their election. If you are interested in political fundraising and campaign strategy, check out Local Victory.
Uniquely, during my career I have had the privilege of launching three multi-million dollar non-profit fundraising operations from scratch, and my specialty is helping organizations plan and implement campaigns to massively increase their fundraising revenue in a sustainable way.
