Why The Savvy Fundraiser?
The definition of savvy is “experienced, knowledgable and well-informed.” As a fundraiser, I have a responsibility to “promote high ethical standards and to preserve and enhance philanthropy.” (AFP, Donor Bill of Rights). I am committed to being well-informed about your mission, programs, finances, and fundraising goals. Sounds like a lot right? But that’s where we have the opportunity to work together with your team to make the greatest case for your cause. By being knowledgable about all that is going on within your organization, we can communicate your mission more effectively with your donor. You will be able to connect their passions with your programs so that collectively you can make a difference in the world. Let’s build a foundation of philanthropy that roots itself in ethical best practices as well as fosters the development and growth of our unique field.
