As much as it seems like life has been put on hold, there are some things that are still very much a part of our lives—like metrics. We know that things will start to return to normal at some point and the need for philanthropic support will be more important than ever. What can you do now?
The leader in a time of stress cannot be paralyzed by fear. What is the right thing for the leader to do when the world is spinning and the team needs direction?
Whether the challenge is economic, environmental, negative publicity, or a combination of the three, an opportunity exists to move relationships and support forward, even though the likelihood and timing of gift commitments may be delayed.
This is the perfect time to assess our operations, evaluate the integrity of our data and our system configurations, take a deep dive into our major gift portfolios, and get creative when it comes to stewardship activities.
