Gail Perry a twenty plus year veteran fundraiser often gives presentations to professionals and board members alike to help them see a new side of fundraising they never knew existed. Each time I’ve heard her speak I always come away with a new idea to put into practice both as a board member of a nonprofit as well as when I am asked to serve in my role as a nonprofit consultant.
Gail recently wrote a book called: Fired-Up Fundraising Turn Board Passion into Action
I strongly recommend everyone picking up a copy of this book. There are lots of tidbits of wisdom to glean that help board members and staff get over the real fear of fundraising, likewise, understand why passion is so important and how this passion for changing the world allows a deeper connection with the mission of the nonprofit!
