On September 18, about 40 nonprofit leaders gathered together for a morning workshop hosted by New Resource Bank on “Fundraising Strategies for the Missing Middle.” The event was facilitated by Third Plateau Social Impact Strategies, a philanthropic advisory and nonprofit consulting firm.
Who is the missing middle? Traditionally, these are donors between $1,000 and $10,000. But they are more than that too--the missing middle wants to engage in nonprofits’ work beyond just contributions.
