The Weekend Briefing Plus

“Thank you for the special work you do in teaching, guiding and inspiring us.”

“The Weekend Briefing is the one consistent place I receive great energy, inspiration and useful information that I can use immediately and daily. Thank you for always being the email I want to read. Always.”

“I always appreciate your inspiring weekly messages. You are a shining star in our profession.”

The Weekend Briefing began on Sunday night, September 15, 2008, in the heart of the Great Recession. It was not the best of times to be a fundraiser.

That first Briefing was emailed to 19 development directors, all of whom worked without the resources many other shops take for granted.

Today, The Weekend Briefing is received every Sunday night by more than 1,500 advancement professionals in 41 states, Canada, England, Ireland, Germany, and Australia.

On October 4, 2020, the Briefing became The Weekend Briefing Plus.
