“Collecting Courage” calls all non-profit professionals to understand and respond to the immense privilege and oppression in this industry.
If you don’t start treating donors as equals, letting them have a voice and telling them they’re making a difference, you’ll find that they will literally run away from you.
In addition to creating a culture of philanthropy at your organization, you also need to embrace a culture of major gifts.
Universities need to build a pipeline of donors that starts when a freshman walks onto campus.
No matter how big your non-profit or your development team, the ultimate goal is to be centered on the donor experience.
If you believe your non-profit needs to have a culture of philanthropy and leadership isn’t leading, you be the change. Show it by your actions!
