It’s such a privilege to work in fundraising, I’ve done it since the day I graduated in 2008 and wouldn’t want it any other way. I get to meet people every day who have the same goal, to make society a better place for those who need it.
If I could offer any advice it would be to read from those who have been there, done it and wrote the book. If you’re a fundraiser, read Ken Burnett. If you’re a marketeer, read Ogilvy. If you want great stewardship, read Tom Ahern.
Fundraising works best when you look after two groups of people brilliantly well: your donors and the team around you. That’s what I’m passionate about.
