Fundraising Bright Spots Learning Series


How are fundraisers navigating the obstacles and opportunities of an uncertain and quickly changing landscape? We need deeper perspectives to ground and guide us as we move through the unknown and figure out what it means to mobilize resources in support of our missions now. 

The Fundraising Bright Spots Learning Series took place from 2020 to 2021. These sessions built on lessons from CompassPoint's Fundraising Bright Spots research, but most importantly, drew on community wisdom and peer learning to surface real questions, practices, and challenges from fundraisers doing the work. The recordings have been collected below for your learning and reference.
