5 Non-Profit Fundraising Bloggers You Should Be Reading

by Fundraising Authority Team


One of my greatest joys here at The Fundraising Authority is finding new sources of information for non-profit fundraisers.  Not just any old resources mind you, but phenomenal resources that you and your organization can use to learn and thrive.

From time to time, we publish lists of excellent websites, videos, training sites and other sources for development professionals (previous lists can be found here, here and here).  Today, I want to specifically focus on bloggers – those stalwarts purveyors of fundraising knowledge who are regularly writing about how you and your organization can increase your fundraising prowess.  Here are 5 non-profit fundraising bloggers you should be reading:

Joanne Fritz

We all know About.com, one of the web’s ubiquitous aggregators of information.  Frankly, many About writers / curators aren’t that great – they simply repost mediocre articles from other writers and call it a day.  Not so with Joanne Fritz, the editor of About.com’s Non-Profit portal.

Joanne is a non-profit development pro who regularly writes new and exclusive articles about fundraising and non-profit management, scours the web for the best information to share, and generally provides an amazing resource to organizations worldwide.  Check her out at About.com’s Nonprofit Charitable Organizations page.

Heather Stewart

While based in the UK, Activate Fundraising’s Heather Stewart blogs about issues of importance to non-profits worldwide.  From marketing to fundraising to social media, Heather regularly posts insightful content that will help your non-profit succeed.  Read her latest posts at Activate Fundraising.

Mazarine Treyz

As the author of the Wild Woman’s Guide to Fundraising, Mazarine blogs on all topics facing non-profit fundraisers, including fundraising management, donor cultivation and fundraising through social media.  Check out all of her past and future columns at Wild Woman Fundraising.

Kivi Leroux Miller

Kivi’s articles focus on non-profit communications, and especially on fundraising / donor / prospect communications.  She is a trainer, consultant and author, but most of all you’ll want to read her blog and see all she has to say at Kivi’s NonProfit Communications Blog.

John Haydon

All social media, all the time.  If you’re looking for great ways to get your non-profit engaged on social networks, John’s your guy.  His regular posts focus on everything from non-profit Twitter engagement to writing great and “shareable” blog posts for your organization’s blog.  Check him out at JohnHaydon.com.
