Dear Friends of A Few Great Women,
This particular post is not about one inspiring and successful woman who gives, volunteers, raises funds and provides great prospect research. This post is about many – you.
To honour #ResearchPride month, my contribution is simply to pose a question that will motivate you and make you care to comment:
“As a principled prospect development professional, how do you help philanthropy grow?”
Tell me the first words that spring to mind, or take some time to craft a careful (witty?) response. Do please comment here or share on your favourite social media.
And of course, MEN, I want to hear from you too!
