once worked with someone who, when he found a meeting boring,
would figure out the true cost of the meeting. He would estimate
the salaries of those present, calculate a per hour rate, add in

figure was always a jaw-dropper. That old chestnut “time is
money” applied. Meetings are expensive.
1991, the Canadian FundRaiser™ newsletter has been
updating nonprofit managers twice-monthly on news, trends, tips and
analysis of developments in the fields of fundraising and nonprofit
Our service, originally simply a twice-monthly newsletter, has expanded over the years to include workshops, books, back-issue search and Special Advisories for our member/subscribers. And the complete package is now the Canadian FundRaiser™ Nonprofit Sector Management Information Service.
Current Members can search back issues here, renew their Membership, or correct their address information in our secure files.
Through the generous support of a number of Supporting Sponsors, at the head of them our Lead Sponsor, UNxVision Internet Fundraising Solutions, we have avoided price increases for many years, and been able to provide some services at no cost.
