I believe there is one thing in life that causes success: Clear, even bold communication.
Over my twenty-five year career I’ve worked with thousands of people in the social profit sector – from board members and CEOs to volunteers and donors. The thing I’ve observed, over and over again, is the importance of communication.
What people often forget is that communication actually has two parts: talking AND listening.
As fundraisers we can get wrapped up in the things we want to say, in our key messaging, in doing our very best to communicate what it is that makes our organization’s work so powerful and worthy of people’s time, attention, and money.
While trying to craft the perfect statements we sometimes forget to listen, and listening is just as, if not more, important than talking.
This is what makes My Inch of The Earth a unique and exciting opportunity for the social profit sector.
