Helping Small (and Very Small) Nonprofits

Based on his years of nonprofit fundraising and leadership, Hanberg published The Little Book of Gold, a fundraising guide for small (and very small) nonprofits.

When he was just 23, Erik Hanberg was hired to run a non-profit arts organization with an annual budget just over $600,000. Two years later, he had increased the budget to $800,000, and increasing fundraising more than 400%.

Since then he has worked in development at multi-million dollar non-profit, and has volunteered on many boards.

He was most recently the Executive Director of a small civic non-profit and currently sits on the distribution committee for a foundation that gives away more than $200,000 a year.
