Influencing the Influencers
We are in a noble profession—connecting philanthropists of all types with the opportunity to change lives, to save lives.
So often we can be focused on one person and forget about the influencers. One of the greatest errors in our profession is to forget a spouse. I wrote a few months back about the pain I felt when a new client shares that they had made major gift asks and did not involve the spouse.
Looking for Jeff? You'll find him either on the lake, laughing with good friends, or helping nonprofits develop to their full potential.
Jeff believes that successful fundraising is built on a bedrock of relevant, consistent messaging; sound practices; the nurturing of relationships; and impeccable stewardship. And that organizations that adhere to those standards serve as beacons to others that aspire to them. The Bedrocks & Beacons blog will provide strategic information to help nonprofits be both.
Jeff has more than 25 years of nonprofit leadership experience and is a member of the NonProfit PRO Editorial Advisory Board.
