The Secret Behind Every Fundraising Success Story
As a fundraiser, I’ve been to my fair share of fundraising parties, often hosted by a board member, donor or volunteer. While these events can be a fantastic way to connect and meet new potential major donors, I typically find them to be awkward, stiff and sometimes a little too heavy on the wine.
Recently, I helped host a local fundraising party, not unlike those mentioned above, to benefit an organization very close to my heart: Daraja Academy, a secondary school for girls in Kenya. Daraja’s program is nothing short of transformative. I witnessed it myself during the 7 months I lived on campus as a communications intern after graduating from college.
