It's a beautiful thing: the donors, you the organizers, and the kids who get scholarships as a result all get great benefits from what you're doing. Keep it up! Best of luck on your fundraiser this year.

A teacher, some of my late stepson's close friends and family started a scholarship fund in his memory three years ago. The fourth fundraiser will be held next week. I have been astounded at the generosity of our community and local business with an emphasis on individual donors who contribute year after year. It has been rewarding to offer three scholarships a year to students continuing their education. I think there is some truth to the Ben Franklin Effect, especially since I live in the town of Franklin which was named after Ben Franklin who donated books to the first public library.

What is this blog all about?

If you're serious about raising money from donors, you need to get serious about donors. More than ever before, donors are insisting that you share power with them, not treating them like passive ATMs. This blog is about the ways you can do that -- and the rewards that await you and your donors when you do.
