The Only Thing Constant is Change: Fundraising for an Ever Changing World

with Kari Young, Lutheran Community Services Northwest

With all nonprofit leaders, there is a huge amount of change occurring, including changes in how we do fundraising. This impacts finances, management, leadership, adaptability, and volunteer management. Fundraising and connection is what ties us all together as an organization and as a community. If we are good at it, people know about us. If we are bad at it, people know about it.

Connection and communication is vital as we move into these uncharted waters. With a recession looming and mass layoffs around us, we need to be prepared and to be doing our best work now to allow us to weather the storms ahead. Creating communication and connection inside and outside of our organizations is imperative if we hope to survive this next chapter in our organization’s history.
