How to Use Relationship Fundraising to Grow Philanthropy

It’s impossible to understate how important the concept of “relationship fundraising” is to many fundraisers.  Since Ken Burnett outlined the principles in his 1992 book Relationship Fundraising, the idea has become one of the dominant modes of thought about fundraising.  Yet there is still little agreement among practitioners about what relationship marketing actually is, what a relationship approach might mean for the way we steward our relationships with supporters and crucially, whether it even works.  Discover the latest findings from world renowned fundraising expert and author Adrian Sargeant to unleash renewed potential for relationship fundraising to grow your fundraising.
