As I read of more nonprofits laying off fundraising staff, I thought now was a good time for a reminder.
People are donating. People who have a lot are donating and people who are struggling are donating.
People are trying to figure out how they can make a difference during these trying times. They want to help. Many feel powerless.
That’s where we in the nonprofit fundraising world come in. It’s up to us to let people know what we’re doing, the impact we’re having, and most importantly, how our mission matches how people want to make a difference.
We have to keep building relationships and honor those who give.
We have to ask.
Nothing new with any of this.
Thank you for reading.
