I have always fallen in love with the cause. One of the best things about my work is helping others to do the same and to see fundraising as a gift to be shared, not a burden to be anxious about. Organisations we work with do extraordinary work, and it is energising and inspiring working with them to share what they do with others. Why wouldn’t they feel proud to ask donors to join them in this work, to join them in a journey that changes lives?
It’s very satisfying helping clients think more deeply about what they do that is important and why, how to bring donors with them, and how together they can make real impact. It’s wonderful to see the confidence in their cause this brings. That changes everything.
