Here’s how the qualifying process works, when you’re building a caseload of major donors.
Through my many years of fundraising leadership, I’ve never empirically encountered donor fatigue.
As a manager, you have to lead in your area of expertise and for all the other work, get results through the work of others who are better at it than you.
Respect your donor’s wishes in their interactions with you. Don’t cross boundaries they set.
The path to a lasting relationship with your donor is to never cross the line from social influence into manipulation.
Donors can tell when you’re stretching the truth, even for the best of reasons. As they trust you more, they’ll give more.
