Year-end fundraising in July!!
Apologies in advance for filling your mind with all the bad eighties television commercials that screamed "CHRISTMAS IN JULY" at you.
But now really is the time to be thinking about the year-end fundraising campaign you’ll be running in December. If you plan now, your December self will thank you. We promise. Instead of stressing over donation pages that are not created or emails not written, you’ll be throwing snowballs or drinking hot chocolate or even taking a vacation in December.
To get you in the fundraising mood now, we’ve put together some great blog posts including one from our favorite fundraising firm, Sea Change Strategies:
