How do I fix my fundraising quickly without duct-tape?
Play • 51 min

I’m no handyman but I do know that if something’s stuck, use WD-40 and if something’s moving when it’s not supposed to, use duct-tape.  And it would appear that in nonprofits we use a lot of metaphorical duct-tape to fix the shaky bits in our fundraising.  In the absence of a spray or pill that makes people suddenly love fundraising, today we’ve got Rachel Ramjattan who’s trained over 300 grassroots organizations to fundraise.  She’s laid out a huge chunk of her training in her book, No More Duct-Tape Fundraising, and today she shares her answers to the three questions she gets asked the most:  how do I find my Oprah or other super-rich benefactor, how do I get my board to fundraise and finally as Chief Everything Officer how do I find the time?  We start with why people don’t like fundraising in the first place - and of course, Rachel has a great story to share.
