The philanthropic environment has always been fiercely competitive. Donors are faced with choosing not between the good and the bad, but between the good and the good. Now COVID-19 has intensified everything. Fundraising responsibilities can no longer be delegated only to staff members and supported by a few brave board members. Non-profits don’t have a staff position, board member or other stakeholder to waste. But men and women who are passionate about their favorite non-profits and causes can be trained to be effective fundraisers. Even in a volatile economy, more than $1 billion a day will be donated to non-profits that are committed to telling their stories, building relationships, and asking for the support they need and deserve. So, you don’t want to miss out on vital funding opportunities.
