Within the last decade, one of the most striking changes in fundraising has been the composition of the workforce itself-the dramatic increase in the numbers of women pursuing fundraising careers. This issue of New Directions for Philanthropic Fundraising addresses the opportunities and challenges created by these marked shifts in the gAnder make-up and workplace culture of fundraising. Using personal histories, demographic trAnds, statistical data, and life and work experiences, the authors highlight the significant ways the nonprofit sector is being shaped by women's leadership in fundraising and greater participation in the professional ranks. They outline a number of professional development strategies for women in fundraising; examine the current status of women in fundraising as measured by compensation rates and organizational position; and analyze the impact of women's changing socioeconomic role on the organizational structures and policies of traditional fundraising institutions, such as religious organizations and the YWCA. This is the 19th issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Philanthropic Fundraising.

Strategic Planning for Fund Raising

This book offers a detailed strategic planning methodology that nonprofits can use to get the best results for their fund-raising dollars. Wesley Lindahl shows how nonprofit organizations--including health care providers, colleges and universities, and others--can optimize gift income by strategically allocating fund-raising resources. Lindahl explains how to analyze such programs as major gifts, planned giving, annual campaigns, direct mail appeals, and phone-a-thons, and distribute resources among them most effectively. Drawing on a specific example of how the methodology has been used at Northwestern University, he describes each step in developing a strategic plan, from initiating the planning process to monitoring its results. And he explains how a range of institutions--from small groups using just two or three fund-raising techniques to large institutions with a wide array of programs--can adapt and utilize this strategic planning method. Lindahl summarizes the planning process in four major steps--mission strategy, budget, and control--and enumerates the benefits of using this method. He describes how to set up a steering committee and schedule the necessary planning sessions throughout the fiscal year. He explains how to interpret past results, survey the current economic and regulatory climate, and assess the public image of the organization--and how to use this information in planning fund-raising efforts. He specifies how electronic spreadsheets and special software can be used to determine the optimal allocation of resources, shows how to apply this analysis in a usable strategy, and discusses the strategic advantages of emphasizing long-term development programs.
