All About Eve
As a journalist and a woman, I am fascinated by her. As a fundraiser, I might be intimidated by her. Would I have the cervical fortitude to do what she does and do it so passionately? Would a single conversation with me, as a fundraiser, incite people to write a check on the spot or, better yet, sign up to produce “The Vagina Monologues” in their communities?
If you can swing it, meet Eve Ensler. I dare you. She quickly became a hero of mine. (Yeah, I put a picture of her on my wall — so what?) If you’re brave enough to really take her in and recognize what she represents about donor needs and relationships, and to the future of nonprofit fundraising, I’m sure you’ll feel the same.
