Fund raising? In this economy?
Every donor’s financial landscape is different. And every organization’s list of prospects and donors is different. I have received gifts of $10,000 to $1 million from people whose wealth comes from many different places: an inventor of medical devices, a brain surgeon, heirs of the 3M, Pioneer Seed Corn, and Target, Maytag, and Reynolds Aluminum fortunes, the daughter of a collector of New England hydro-electric dams, stock market wizards and real estate investors. And lots of people with modest incomes who lived frugally, invested wisely, and discovered at some point that they had more than enough. People ask me “how is fund raising in this economy?” I always tell them, “there seems to be money out there for organizations that are smart about their relationships with their donors.”
