I participate in a few online forums around the web where I share information about a variety of different interests and topics. But for the life of me, I couldn’t find any that are active that deal with fundraising (unless they are fundraising for specific groups, like frats/sororities, soccer teams, and schools). Why wasn’t there a place for leaders of small nonprofits to get together online and talk about fundraising? (Let alone leaders of nonprofits in general!)

There are so many of us! We need a resource, a place to meet and talk about what worked, what didn’t, and exchange ideas.

So without further ado, I am very excited to introduce the Fundraising Hat Forums!


Leaders of small nonprofits need to wear many different hats every day. When it’s time to put on your fundraising hat, hopefully these forums will be the place to be.

Right now the Fundraising Hat is just a few Executive Directors I know and myself talking about fundraising (and straying from the topic, when we have our other hats on). But I hope to see more people come, ask a question, and maybe stick around to answer one or two as well.

This could be a great tool that, over time, starts to amass real knowledge.

If that sounds at all interesting to you, I hope you will check it out!
