Fund Development Work

What We're Reading...

Have you all seen this very interesting CompassPoint article about fund development work?

It suggests that having a healthy “culture of philanthropy” in an organization (that is, a culture where fundraising is genuinely valued and considered a shared responsibility) is critical to success. We’ve been thinking about that issue for a while now, and last year we developed a quick self- assessment “quiz” to help organizations begin to get a sense for how healthy their fundraising culture might be. Fair warning that this tool has not been “validated” in any scientific way, but we have found it is a great way to get staff and board members talking about their organizations’ strengths and weaknesses in these areas. We’ve attached it here – give it a shot and let us know what you think!
