(SAVANNAH, GA) Fundraising TIP BY ROBIN GOLD: In a down economy, it is especially important to keep cultivating your current donor base. Old donors  already believe in your cause, so keeping them will be easier than trying to attract new donors. Always  seek new donors, but hang on to the old ones dearly.
