Teach someone to fish

This platitude has been variously ascribed to ancient philosopher Laozi or medieval philosopher Maimonides. Either way, it’s been with us a long time, you’ve all heard it, and I don’t need to expand upon it here. However banal it may be, the sentiment is a major part of our guiding philosophy here at Fractured Atlas. 

We do not give you fish. Instead, we’ve crafted really neat fishing rods for you to take to the pond to try: Fundraising by Fractured Atlas,, and Spacefinder.

And since we cannot do the fishing for you, we work every day to give you the best instruction in how to do it yourself. For free or for the cost of your membership, you can access our Knowledge Base, Webinars, Blog, and the arts admin expertise of our staff.

We’re now proud to announce expanded educational resources. Our staff has developed guidebooks on the following topics, now available for sale. For a limited time, these guidebooks (list price: $19.95 per guidebook) will be available for the introductory price of $9.95 each.

Our first guidebook is on Setting Goals and Meeting Them. It distills our hard-earned practical wisdom on defining measurable objectives and the tools that Fractured Atlas uses to stay on track.

The next four guidebooks are all about different types of fundraising appeals and come just in time for end-of-year giving! Each guidebook includes workbook exercises and a template to kickstart your writing process as well as concrete tips for crafting the most effective appeals. Learn how to write stellar fundraising ask letters for:

  • Crowdfunding Campaigns

  • Monthly Donors

  • Holiday Giving

  • Renewed Support (Asking Someone to Donate Again)

These four guidebooks are sold separately at the launch price of $9.95 each or can be bundled together for $35 (list price: $70).

Please email to request a guidebook, which will be emailed to you as a PDF. And stay tuned for future guidebooks and other educational resources on new topics to help you raise funds and sell tickets.
