The experts at Goettler Associates, an esteemed fundraising consulting firm based in Columbus, OH, have launched the next evolution of their engaging and helpful resources for nonprofit executives and volunteer board members that are striving to improve the results of their fundraising efforts ( The firm was an early adopter of the internet in 1994 when it first started offering its acclaimed Goettler Series of whitepapers online, which now spans 12 volumes and has been frequently updated over the years.

The firm expanded its offering of resources with the launch of its quarterly newsletter entitled Fund Raising Matters(sm) in 1996, which is now approaching the one million distribution mile mark. These regular publications offer the latest insights on the “state-of-the-art” in fund raising and exploration of developing trends in the industry.

In April, the firm completed its fourth comprehensive survey on the nonprofit sector through The Fund Raising Matters OUTLOOK Survey. The results of this year’s survey suggest the Road Ahead will be much improved. The survey explored who is raising more, how they did it, and what changes they have made and will make in the future… vital information for fundraising professionals who want to realize more of their organization’s true philanthropic potential.

The new website also introduces a new section where the firm’s experts will post news and information from around the industry. Like most industries, the volume of information available to practitioners has exploded in recent years.

Goettler Associates has served the fundraising needs of the nation’s nonprofit organizations for nearly 50 years across six decades. Established in 1965 by Ralph H. Goettler, the firm assembled a staff of highly qualified professionals to serve the total funding and marketing requirements of clients’ major fundraising initiatives.

The firm’s purpose is to lead nonprofit organizations toward realization of their philanthropic potential through a full circle of effective counsel. The firm has helped its clients conduct successful capital campaigns, increase annual operating support, establish planned giving programs, and strengthen their endowments.

Successful fundraising aligns a dynamic set of circumstances with the concerted efforts of volunteers, professionals, and donors. Therefore, every funding program must be individualized. This requires a combination of several essential elements, including capital, annual, and deferred giving, in addition to a well-orchestrated advocacy program that often involves the organization’s marketing and public relations support.

Goettler Associates presents comprehensive service offerings in the areas of Fund Raising, Constituency Engagement, Leadership, and Planning, and can help most organizations to consistently meet and even exceed its funding goals.
