Fundraising from the inside out

On this blog, I've briefly mentioned the Abundance League before. Last month, I had the pleasure of talking with them in person about the power of fundraising. was kind enough to write down a few summary notes. They included:

  • Fundraising is a great opportunity for transformation for both the fundraiser and those who want to realize their dreams by supporting a good cause.
  • When you connect to a donor through their passions and help make their dreams come true, there's no need to be shy about asking for money or other help.
  • Giving is good for your health. You enlarge your soul and better connect to others by increasing your generosity.
  • Giving and getting are connected. Make room for receiving when you give.
  • Learning how to give and receive are equally important to creating a culture of generosity. Reward those that give by accepting their gifts fully.
  • To be an effective fundraiser, all the rules that apply to building personal relationships apply to donor relations.
If you'd like to learn more about the Abundance League or get involved, please visit their blog today.

There is only one giver, we are all custodians of the wealth given to us mostly by chance and circumstance. We came into this world with our fists closed and will leave with our hands open.

To give is a duty and a privilege; verily one who steals from the trust is a thief.If you give from your heart; not from guilt, peer pressure or for recognition, you will receive a reward many times over. Giving vision to the blind, hearing to the deaf, food to the hungry, education to the needy and smile to the depressed is giving from the heart. True giving is giving to your capacity; wealth unused will eventually be misused. hoarding wealth has never brought happiness.
