Stayed Focused on Your Priorities
I made a tough choice this year. For the first time ever, that I recall, I did not send Christmas cards.

It really becomes a week-long project between developing the list, addressing the envelopes and signing the cards — hopefully with a semblance of a message.
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.
