Seize the Fundraising Opportunity!
Take time each week when you plan for the following week to discern any golden opportunities that you may not be seeing. Involve your team — staff and volunteers — in a regular review of prospective donor relationships and the timing of next steps.
Be proactive. Don't sit there and let opportunities pass you by. Carpe diem — seize the day!
