There are more than 1.5 million tax-exempt organizations in the United States (National Center for Charitable Statistics), and recent estimates indicate that about 12.3 million people work in the nonprofit sector. It is estimated that three-quarters of American nonprofits have budgets under $1 million but there are many that are even smaller.

In this episode, I sit down with Erik Hanberg, author of four books for very small nonprofits, to find out how small nonprofits can fundraise, where they should focus their limited time and resources, and how to get it all done with a tiny staff (maybe of 1 person). 

Erik Hanberg has spent 20 years working with nonprofits. In addition to serving as the director of two nonprofits, he has served as an Interim ED twice and worked for nonprofits in marketing and fundraising. He has also served on boards and committees for more than a dozen organizations, often in leadership roles, and several times during a capital campaign.

He is the author of four books for nonprofits, focusing on nonprofit management, fundraising, social media, and board governance, which have collectively sold tens of thousands of copies. They’ve been praised as essential reads for nonprofits by, LinkedIn for Nonprofits, Kirkus Reviews, and thousands of executive directors and board members.
