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.
In 2013 he published The Little Book of Likes, a social media guide for small and (and very small) nonprofits based on his social media and marketing experience for nonprofits, small businesses, and his own election to public office in 2011.
