Welcome to Nolo's Fundraising Tips for Busy Nonprofits. This blog will offer lots of ideas for raising money for your nonprofit -- whether you're a staff member, board member, or volunteer -- in a world where no one seems to have enough time to do all they'd like to, even for a good cause.
The blog is written by Ilona Bray, a Nolo editor and the author of Effective Fundraising for Nonprofits: Real-World Strategies That Work. Ilona has worked and volunteered for nonprofit organizations in practically every imaginable capacity, from staff attorney to development director to book-sale coordinator to advisory board member.
Among Ilona's most memorable experiences were passing out HIV+ literature in Guatemala, researching U.N programs as a legal intern for Amnesty International in London, and representing (pro bono) disabled, low-income people seeking Social Security benefits in Washington, DC.
