Encore: Build Your Development Team Without Breaking Your Budget, with Cindy Wagman

I’m resharing one of my most popular podcast episodes: A fantastic conversation with Cindy Wagman,  Founder and President of The Good Partnership, best-selling author of Raise It! The Reluctant Fundraiser’s Guide to Raising Money Without Selling Your Soul, and host of the top-rated podcast, The Small Nonprofit.

Cindy offers a mini-masterclass on how to build your fundraising team as your organization grows, before you have the budget for a full-time development director.  She shares:

  • Why it’s dangerous to hire a junior development person first,
  • How to figure out the type and level of fundraising support you need on your team
  • What it means to hire a “fractional fundraiser,”  and
  • The difference between a fractional fundraiser and a consultant.

Plus, Cindy breaks down how to know when you’re ready to build your team, what to look for in a fractional fundraiser, and how to integrate external development support into your team for maximum impact.
