Fundraising Search Firms For Nonprofits

It’s hard to find fundraising professionals for your nonprofit organization. We designed a list of the top fundraising executive search firms to help you find a fundraiser or development director that will bring in much-needed revenue for your organization.

We found five fundraising executive search firms that help nonprofit organizations find fundraisers. Some of these nonprofit recruitment companies work inside a nationwide network of nonprofit executive recruiters. Other firms operate primarily within a local area and have experience in the fields where they recruit talent. No matter the structure of the organization, these companies have all been recommended to be included on this list.

Here’s our list of the top fundraising search firms for nonprofits.
