Some Mind-Bloggling Additions to the FS Team

 

Starting today, folks, sharp-as-a-tack fundraising smarty-pants Angie Moore will be blogging for FundRaising Success, under the title Navigating Off the Napkin. You can read her posts at the NON blog here. Angie is a partner at Donor Voice.

Angie's new blog is the latest in our efforts to bring you FS-exclusive blogs on a regular basis. Aside from NON, of course, we already have this blog and FS Managing Editor Joe Boland's Get What You Give Blog. Regular Today in Fundraising contributors Jeff Jowdy and Pamela Barden will be blogging under the names The Bedrock & Beacon Blog and Fundraising Matters, respectively. And in the near future, Willis Turner, senior copywriter at Huntsinger & Jeffer, and fundraising consultant Duke Haddad will come aboard, as well.

Also, we'll be resurrecting our old ProSpeak blog, where anyone in the fundraising sector is invited to contribute. Just send your posts to mbattistelli@napco.com. Be sure to include your full name and title, as well as a headshot if possible. We look forward to hearing from you!

Margaret
