I carry a banner that says: LOVE YOUR DONORS. I know that sounds weird. It's my thing. I do it because I know -- I know from years of experience -- that the nonprofits that love their donors raise a lot more money. I want that to happen.
I've been active in fundraising for nearly 30 years, and LOVE YOUR DONORS is the most important thing I know about my profession.
If you think this way too, we should get in touch.
Someone who carries a banner is called a "gonfalonier." I like that word, and I like carrying my banner. If you're still reading this, would you mind doing me a favour? I want "gonfalonier" to show up at the top of my list of skills here on LinkedIn. It'll get there when enough people endorse it. If you think I'm doing a decent job of carrying my LOVE YOUR DONORS banner, could you endorse "Gonfalonier" as one of my skills? Thanks.
