Creating a Holistic Approach to Fundraising

There are many ways for fundraisers to succeed within the profession, but one of the most important is through community. This has been evident as we navigate through 2020, an unprecedented year that has been filled with unthinkable challenges. The October 2020 issue of Advancing Philanthropy explores the significance of community in building an equitable, diverse, and inclusive profession, and how to respond to our communities during crisis. You’ll find articles on the importance of seeing more minority representation, maximizing spaces for women of color in fundraising and maintaining fundraising best practices during times of crisis. And as we celebrate Ethics Awareness Month, we also cover the principles of ethical fundraising.
