Every time I facilitate a leadership governance training I go through a range of emotions. It starts with curiosity, veers into terror, and then settles into curiosity and exhilaration as I get into the room and start working with the participants.

Recruiting fundraising champions to help your not-for-profit organization find funding and build relationships with funders.
In fundraising, as in life, I have learned that different paths may often lead to unexpected and rewarding results. I once met a couple who got lost and ended up on a remote road leading to the college campus where I worked. This began a journey that lead to a multi-year major gift from their family foundation. I was very glad they took that path!
