NEW downloadable PDFs
3 handy PDFs for your quick reference
I decided to excerpt some segments from my recent PowerPoint shows. You can download them as PDFs for handy reference when you're tackling similar projects. One PDF analyzes the case for support inside Jen Wastrom's amazingly effective 2010 appeal for the Mark Twain Library. Another explains the neuroscientific reason why jargon is your enemy in fundraising ... and offers tips instead for igniting interest in your readers. The third PDF opens the discussion on "natural constituencies." Every cause has one: a group of people predisposed to give to you. But how to find them? Get them into a fight.

Census
Ahern how-to e-newsletter surpasses 9,000 subscribers
On August 21, 2014, the donor-centerrific reader pool for the Ahern e-newsletter, introduced in 2001, missiled over the 9,000 mark. Join the tribe! We want you! Currently (and until 2035, experts say) the biggest growth opportunity for fundraising is in steadily upgraded donor communications.

New AHERN product introduced...
The LIVE Audit
Combination audit & training
Playing in PPT or Prezi now, on a screen in your office....

Bringing the gift of good criticism and best-practice (i.e., most lucrative practice) advice gently to your organization, with everyone in the approval loop (those nominally known as "your dark overlords") and everyone on the creative team (including fundraisers and communications people) hearing the SAME messages. They can ask their questions. Everyone sees the science. So there's no down-stream kerfuffle. Just feeling this out. Piloting in 1stQ 2015 with client already signed. If you're curious (or desperate), email tom @ a2bmail©aol.com
