Who has loved you into being? Take a minute today to think about them and be grateful for how they helped you be who you are today.
Major gift fundraising is spiritual in nature. A holy thing happens when you help the donor say “yes.”
Does your passion for fundraising come from love? Do you love your donors, your mission?
When you do a lot to thank and show the donor your organization cares about them – but you never ask, or never think big with the donor, and never report on that gift’s impact – is that really showing the donor love?
Do you care enough to really get to know these good people who are passionate about your mission? Do you realize you have the amazing responsibility to inspire them to change the world?
Is this work more to you than just getting the money? Do you show love, empathy, care and loyalty to your donors? It’s amazing what happens when we are good to one another.
