  • Hosted by David Oaks, the Minor Touches To Major Gifts podcast is a discussion of how paying attention to minor touches leads to major gifts for your nonprofit. "Listen to nonprofit leaders and their greatest allies in the business world talk about how pursuing excellence and giving attention to the smallest of details can result in your nonprofit getting all the money it needs!"

  • Creating an Effective Fundraising Plan offers guidance through crafting and understanding a fundraising plan for your organization (CompassPoint, 2016). It specifically covers:
