This article and video originally published on moviemondays.com. Movie Mondays are fun weekly videos to help nonprofits raise money, steward donors, and inspire board members:
Are you wealthy? If not, can you fundraise peer to peer with a wealthy donor?
In this week’s video, Andy Robinson tells a story that illustrates how you can raise money peer to peer…even if you aren’t wealthy yourself.
I just finished up a project with Andy on training board members. He, Andrea Kihlstedt, and I put a series of training videos together. The series is called “How to turn your board members into effective fundraisers“. If you could use some help getting your board members to become better fundraisers, then check out the training videos – click here.
If you have any stories or advice around raising money from donors, please share it with everyone else. Leave a comment under the video. Thanks.
