There is a quote: "Everywhere you go, there you are". In fundraising, if you are the fundraiser, you are there. Knowing yourself is a critical component of your work. Knowing your organization and your donor helps you move from transactional philanthropy to relationship-based giving. Let's build relationship and know how to ask for donor gifts in the most generous way!
