Dear <<First Name>>

Welcome to our second newsletter of 2016. As always, it's packed full of of free tips, news, links and blogs, which I hope you will find useful. Oh, and keep reading for details on how to win a little competition!


Since the last newsletter, and following a brief period of sofa-based rehab after knee surgery, we've been all over the place - mainly in Greater London, but also Exeter, Havant, and more besides. We're delighted to have worked with a wide range of organisations.

I've reviewed two books on philanthropy and the charity sector for UK Fundraising - you can read them here (The Logic of Charity) and here (Public Good by Private Means). And I've been interviewed for two online articles - as part of the Social Good Six series, and as a new member of The Funding Network. As an NCVO consultant, I am also now putting together a monthly Sustainability Roundup blog. Here are the back issues.

There's more! I'm looking forward to presenting at the Institute of Fundraising's National Convention with Mandy Johnson on 5 July on the subject "What if those fundraising warhorses could have taken selfies?" Come and see us! More information here.

And I'll be presenting a workshop for Small Charities Coalition on 'developing a small charity fundraising strategy' on 13 July. Tickets are selling fast. You can book yours here.


The 3rd Sector Mission Control blog continues to be widely read.

Here are some recent posts:

Thank you to my friends at Glint Media for the revamp of the website (and this email newsletter) - the blog posts are now searchable by a range of categories like fundraising, governance and personal development. And it looks much prettier.


Follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook for many more stories, but here's a few interesting things that have caught our eye lately:

And if you are on LinkedIn, and like to read good writing about charities, do join the Charity Blogs group.


So here's the competition! To win a free cuppa, and a chat with me, just reply with the answer to these two questions: which knee did I recently have surgery on? And does it really have anything to do with charity fundraising? I look forward to hearing your thoughts!
