Professional Fund-Raising Booming

December 28, 2010 at 4:38 PM

From the Cleveland Plain Dealer, a story on the booming fund-raising industry:

‘This profession is just exploding in growth,’ said Judy Comeau-Hart, board member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals’ Cleveland chapter, which has grown from 133 members in 1990 to 331.

The reason? With the economy drying up funding sources, nonprofits that once relied on board members to wheedle donations from friends now hire professionals to get the job done.

The story highlights successful fund-raisers who have brought real value to the nonprofits they work for. Professional fund-raisers have come under fire in other cases.
