5 Free Fundraising E-Books that Will Help Your Non-Profit Raise More Money


There are two things that are true of almost every non-profit organization:

First, they need to raise more money.

Second, they don’t have enough resources for fundraising.

Nearly every non-profit I have ever come across wants to raise lots more money to be able to accomplish more good in the world… yet most of those organizations don’t have the time, money, or bandwidth to do everything they want to do when it comes to fundraising.

The good news is that there are lots of free resources available to non-profits to help them learn how to dramatically increase their fundraising.

Today, I want to share with you five free fundraising e-books from non-profit leaders I trust.  These five e-books will help you raise more money, with less hassle.  All you need to do is download them, read them, and get started!  Of course, there is a catch… many of these require you to join the author’s free newsletter list in order to receive the book.  Don’t worry – you can unsubscribe to them at any time.

Here are the books, in no particular order:
