Fundraising & Development

It's the perpetual challenge, the never-ending task, the Sisyphian fate of every nonprofit leader: securing funds to do the work your community needs. Because, like Allen Proctor said, "Your key mission, if you're doing it right, will lose money."

To stay on top of your development game, we've got information on the latest giving trends—mobile, social, crowd-sourced and beyond—as well as the tried-and-true fundraisers, grants, investments, and other campaigns that have been fueling successful nonprofits for decades. Plus: social enterprise, impact investing, GCN's very own online social giving platform, and more.
