LGL offers free fundraising resources to customers

LBOG fundraising resource


Little Green Light is excited to announce free fundraising resources for LGL customers!

Several months ago, LGL team member Virginia Davidson introduced us to Erik Hanberg and his book: Little Book of Nonprofit Leadership. Virginia shared that she was “delighted to come across a small book with big takeaways for anyone who works in a small nonprofit.” And so were we!

When we learned that Erik had also written a book called The Little Book of Gold, which rated as a Top 12 Must-Read Book For Nonprofit Employees, we knew as soon as we read it that it would be a valuable fundraising resource for LGL users. And we wanted to find a way to get it into their hands.

Why The Little Book of Gold is a valuable fundraising resource

The Little Book of Gold is rooted in the realities of working for a nonprofit organization. Erik places an emphasis on best practices and good fundraising strategies that can help guide your work and strengthen your ability to raise funds. Plus, it’s an engaging book. Readers follow along with Linda, a character who works at a historical society and whose daily and long-term responsibilities are anything but fiction.

Erik’s own experience informs the practical and manageable advice he offers to fundraisers, and his approach aligns with Little Green Light’s philosophy. Beyond sharing his book with you, we wanted to show you how you can use Little Green Light to implement the strategies shared in The Little Book of Gold.

LGL’s Companion Guide to The Little Book of Gold

With Erik’s permission, we created LGL’s Companion Guide to The Little Book of Gold. It builds on Erik’s work and takes Linda’s story a step further to show you how Little Green Light can be used to track and manage your fundraising efforts: Everything from achieving 100% board participation, to creating appeal mailings and managing events, to getting your donors subscribed to your e-newsletter, tracking bequests, and more.

Why we’re offering these resources

We hope that after reading The Little Book of Gold and LGL’s Companion Guide, you’ll feel more prepared to tackle the challenges you face at your nonprofit, and less overwhelmed by them. It’s our goal that, with these resources, you’ll also be able to assess new fundraising opportunities to decide if they’re right for your organization and, if so, how to implement them effectively using Little Green Light.
