Since you’ve found my blog, I’m assuming you work in the fantastic field of advancement, as it is designed to be read by those working in various roles of this industry (advancement services, alumni relations, development directors, major gift officers, chief advancement officers, et al).
In this space, I plan to share thoughts that link to one thing: helping you grow your philanthropic support.
My thoughts will be based on my experiences as a consultant for Gonser Gerber LLP, and as an Advancement practitioner just like you. If you’re interested in reading about a particular topic, let me know.
This is an awesome profession that you and I are privileged to call “work.” What we do is important – it brings joy to donors, and much-needed support to advance the important missions of the organizations we serve.
Additionally, we are called by our employers to not just be good at what we do, but to be great. As we strive for greatness every day in carrying out our important responsibilities, the greater good is advanced. And while our work can improve the bottom line, it does so much more. It transforms the lives of those who partner with us, and those who benefit from our organization’s mission.
