TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design.
I just listened to this message about raising funds for non-profits and I found it stimulating. The presentation is excellent (note the use of slides, few words and the speaker remains the presenter and is not dependent on the slides). It is not focused on the kind of funds I raise or for the reasons I want to find greater resources, but I found it stimulating just the same. If you can watch it I hope you find it stimulating too.
