Resource Library

Professionals working in philanthropy often inquire about articles we have written relative to fundraising, career planning and general information with regard to the process of securing a new position. Some of these topics are from presentations at professional conferences. We do not distribute these articles for the general public, but if you see an item that you would like to review, please contact Richard Murray, Search Project Manager ( or call 760-863-4512) and he will forward a copy by e-mail attachment.
