Current issue: Aug Sep 2017

Inside this issue, you’ll meet F&P’s six Movers & Shakers of 2017 plus we’ve introduced a new section that will give you a more international flavour on the topic of fundraising – check out our stories by Usha Menon, Beate Sørum, Adrian Sargeant and Bob Burdenski. Retaining staff is also a hot topic. We asked three fundraising leaders for their perspectives on the issue plus Susan Williamson from Walter & Eliza Hall Institute asks why marketing professionals are taken so seriously yet fundraising professionals aren’t considered ‘quite up to scratch’.
