8 Steps to Take During Difficult Times
I am often asked about the state of major-gifts fundraising during difficult economic times or seasons when things seem to be going well, like right now, but there is fear that something bad is about to happen. Will people give less? Should we budget less? Should we move more into a stewardship mode with donors vs. asking them for gifts? What should we do?
If you’re hanging with Richard it won’t be long before you’ll be laughing.
He always finds something funny in everything. But when the conversation is about people, their money and giving, you’ll find a deeply caring counselor who helps donors fulfill their passions and interests. Richard believes that successful major-gift fundraising is not fundamentally about securing revenue for good causes. Instead it is about helping donors express who they are through their giving. The Connections blog will provide practical information on how to do this successfully. Richard has more than 30 years of nonprofit leadership and fundraising experience, and is founding partner of the Veritus Group.
