Major Donor Fundraising: Put your money where your mouth is

Major Donor Fundraising

If you are tasked with raising money for your organization, then I strongly suggest you put your money where you mouth is.  Make a generous gift to your organization today.

You see, donors are like sharks.  They can smell blood in the water.  And in fundraising, they can sense when you don’t believe in your cause or work.  They somehow know if you are truly invested in the work – or not.  The best way to motivate and energize your fundraising work is to invest not only your time and talents, but also your own money.

This recommendation isn’t just for you.  It’s for your CEO, your board, your staff, and your volunteers.  Those who make the greatest investment will work the hardest to fund and fuel the mission.

So go and put your money where your mouth is.  Make a donation to your cause today.
