Here at the National Trust we have a special vantage point with our THIS PLACE MATTERS crowdfunding competition. We have the great privilege of watching and helping hard-working and passionate community organizations pull out the stops to win and raise money for their much beloved historic spaces.
Last week, I had the opportunity to discuss new approaches to raising funds with non-profit staff and heritage advocates in Regina, Saskatchewan. I told the group that heritage fundraisers can play the sponsorship game with the best of them.
