As a frontline fundraiser, you have power to influence real-world outcomes. Will you use it to help others, or for your own gain?
If you’re trying to make something happen and it just won’t, try to approach fundraising as an artist would when they’re blocked.
In a donor meeting, your role is two-fold: you are their partner, and you are also a facilitator to keep the meeting on-track.
Vulnerability means showing up as your whole, real, authentic self. When you open up, it gives others permission to do the same.
Do you have a coach who can encourage and guide you in your work as a fundraiser? Having this kind of input is invaluable for your career.
When you put each of these into practice, you’ll better serve your donors, which is what being a great frontline fundraiser is all about.
