The Core Ingredient for Success
There is a movement happening, and you have a vital role. There’s something extraordinary you must do that only you can do, and there’s no one else waiting to take your place if you decide to leave our effort. So, please consider greatness over fame and fortune by giving all entrusted to you. Give of yourself and feed the hunger within that drew you to philanthropy. Live out your organization’s mission and experience the metamorphic change to be a champion for your cause.
Passion causes action … get it and you’ll be unstoppable as a fundraiser.
As philanthropic guru and author Harold J. Seymour said: “Every cause needs people more than money, for when the people are with you and are giving your cause their attention, interest, confidence, advocacy and service, financial support should just about take care of itself; whereas, without them in the right quality and quantity in the right places and the right states of mind and spirit, you might as well go and get lost.”
