Let's Talk - Fundraising is Hard!
When I first started fundraising, no one seemed to be talking about how hard fundraising work is.
Sure, we talked about the work itself - the work of writing, calling, and planning that takes time and effort.
But the other stuff? The emotional stuff? Not so much.
Or maybe I just wasn't listening!
Luckily, conversations about the emotional toll of fundraising are happening - and more of us are paying attention to how we care for ourselves and each other in the fundraising space.
On April 19, I'll be joining a panel with Susan Wright Kenny and Haley Cooper, CFRE, talking about ways to avoid burnout and support self care. I'm excited to hear from and learn from Haley and Susan - and to share my stories of how to build a fundraising team that supports one another.
The panel - organized by Rogue Creatives - is part of their Nonprofit Connect series.
