One of my aims in life is to help charities gain new insight, challenge existing beliefs, improve processes and guide fundraisers to be their best. Having read, shared and written a variety of blogs and articles during my time in fundraising, I accumulated a large list of favourites. As the list was getting longer, it was getting harder to find the ones I was looking for. It was therefore high time for me to set about categorising them. In doing so, I thought this set of blogs might be helpful to others in the profession, too.

Hence, Propper Fundraising was born. And yes, that’s a play on my surname, not a typing mistake… 😉

I hope you enjoy these articles by some of the best fundraisers, marketers and data specialists in the world. If nothing else, I hope they spark your imagination to come up with fantastic new ways to raise money for worthy causes. Please feel free to comment on the blogs, start a discussion or suggest new blogs to add to this archive.

Helping those in need is one of the most rewarding activities anyone can do. I would thoroughly recommend it.
