16 May Your role as Chief Visionary Officer
Posted at 17:55h in Blog, Fundraising, UncategorisedFundraisers are the GLUE that holds our departments together. We are the facilitators, we are the opportunity providers, we are the people connectors.
Our positive attitude is quite possibly our single greatest asset (besides our keen ability to listen!)But when you're starting to feel like you're the lone wolf in your department, when leadership starts to treat the fundraising department like their own personal ATM machine, when you're struggling to explain to your boss(es) that you can't just ask for a gift on the first visit with a new contact, you've got to push back - gently - and lean into your role as Chief Visionary Officer at your organization.
