The Best Advice From Nonprofit Leaders
Embrace change. It's going to happen, so we may as well enjoy it, learn from it and keep growing. There's never a dull day in fundraising — and wasn't that part of the appeal in the first place?
Stay mindful of your mission
Know your mission and know the progress your organization is making toward fulfilling it. Share the impact, not just the numbers. And remember, keeping a focus on that all-important mission can help you manage change, explore new ideas, have a basis for building new or deeper relationships, excite your board to fundraise, improve your own skills — oh, yeah, all the advice the fundraising leaders shared as essential.
