This morning while conducting an interview with a CEO for a campaign planning study, I was reminded of the importance of developing the next generation of fundraisers now.
We at The Curtis Group view our overriding role as promoting philanthropy, so we do all we can to help our clients develop their “bench”—their next generation of leaders. Does your organization intentionally involve younger donors, leaders, or volunteers? Are you educating them?
They may need to be trained and they may still be developing connections and influence in the community, but if you’re not investing in them now, they may invest elsewhere in the future.
How does your nonprofit develop future leaders? We invite you to share your tips below.
