A Minute With Cristi Hegranes, Founder and Executive Director, The Global Press Institute
DG: What advice would you give to other organizations that are similar to GPI in size and operating budget?
CH: I think the Global Press Institute's fundraising philosophy offers some wisdom, so I encourage others to follow it. Also, remember that fundraising is all about relationships. Don't expect to make much headway by simply pumping out foundation letters of inquiry and proposals. Call the foundations. Try to set up meetings. And try to meet individual donors who might be inclined to support you. They're harder to find but easier to build relationships with.
