A Blast From the Past: (March 2007): ‘I’m Not a Professional Fundraiser’
FundRaising Success published its first issue in November 2003, which makes this our 10-year anniversary year. To celebrate, we'll be taking a look back at past issues throughout the year.
In March 2007, then-FS Associate Editor Abny Santicola interviewed Rabbi Levi Shemtov, executive director of the West Bloomfield, Mich.-based Friendship Circle, to talk about that organization's fundraising success. In "I'm Not a Professional Fundraiser," the rabbi discussed how Friendship Circle focused on one-on-one relationships with donors to "take the ask out of fundraising."
