Fund Raising Advice From Harlem Children Zone's Geoffrey Canada - Prospecting - The Chronicle of Philanthropy- Connecting the nonprofit world with news, jobs, and ideas

Fund Raising Advice From Harlem Children Zone's Geoffrey Canada - Prospecting - The Chronicle of Philanthropy- Connecting the nonprofit world with news, jobs, and ideas: "Geoffrey Canada has turned the Harlem Children's Zone into what many see as a model charity by taking innovative approaches to traditional problems.

It turns out Mr. Canada approaches fund raising with the same mindset.

Mr. Canada, speaking at a recent meeting of the Association of Fundraising Professionals in New York, said the biggest challenge nonprofit leaderls face today is understanding that traditional fund-raising techniques, like writing appeals, are no longer enough to bring in donations."

Hi Reed

I agree with Mr Canada and we are building a fundraising wiki at www.wikifund.info to which you or others could add information on the changing nature of fundraising and help us all move down that road.
