Blasting Off With Social Media
Change is coming to philanthropy. Big change. Hoping it will "blow over" is not a workable response. Doing what you've always done is a prescription for extinction.
But neither is simply taking action based upon our own perspectives and experience.
It's always been true that donors respond best when you reach out to them on the basis of their needs and aspirations. With the advent of social media and the millennial generation, that immutable truth has just become a whole lot truer!
Thanks to Sarah for reaching out. I've placed a copy of my book, "The Eight Principles of Sustainable Fundraising," into the mail as my thanks.
