A Fundraising 411 Courtesy of Chris Horst

When someone new to fundraising asks me for advice, I often introduce them to Chris Horst of Hope International, who I consider one of the best at the craft of non-profit development. I was excited to see that he summarized his "must read resources on fundraising" in a recent post on his Smorgasblurb blog:

 A few weeks ago, I sat down with a friend-of-a-friend who just started her first fundraising job. Because I’ve now been in a fundraising role for over five years, I have meetings and calls with new fundraisers often. Sometimes they’re new fundraisers joining the HOPE International team. Other times they are joining other organizations. Every time, it surprises me. Because I never thought I would last in a fundraising role. Even more surprising, I never thought I would truly enjoy the work. But I’ve lasted and I’ve grown in my enjoyment with each passing year.
