After 20 years of fundraising, I’m still feeling the same excitement and curiosity when I meet a donor. This is all about human relationship: sharing values and vision, dreaming about a future that will be different, making things happen. Working with various organizations and helping them fulfil their ambitions is a good way of increasing global impact and changes for a better society, and keeping your mind curious and open.
Philanthropy is certainly the most powerful human adventure and is growing everywhere.
I like to think that I am contributing in my own way and that all More Partners contribute to extending this philanthropic culture.
