eHartsook on Philanthropy
Karin L. Cox, MFA - Editor

February 2013

For 26 years, Hartsook has been a leader in philanthropy, fundraising innovation, nonprofit fundraising education and fundraising success. Is this the formula for raising more money in a shorter amount of time? There are never any guarantees, but have you ever wondered why Hartsook clients are successful in good times, bad times and all the times in between? We're celebrating over $1 billion raised by Hartsook clients in 2012, as well as clients either completing or in the process of completing their campaigns - from a few million dollars to over a billion - supporting education, social service, health care, arts and youth services.

Meeting goals on time is good; exceeding goals and ahead of schedule… these are the marks of proven achievement!
