A Walk Around the Track With an Event Donor
'How is the organization doing? I mean, what progress is it making in XXXX (the mission)?'
This was when the conversation fell apart, but I was really surprised about how it ended. At first, my question didn't seem to make sense. I explained that I wanted to know if they knew what kind of progress was being made in the specific area supported by this charity. I got some more blank stares. But since this was only my second question, I didn't want to upset them and have them walk away. So I started to answer the question for them. We talked about the specific mission. We talked about how tough the situation is. This got them talking about the topic of progress.
