EVERYONE at a nonprofit agency is a fundraiser. We need to bring out the inner-fundraiser in everyone: staff, Board, donors and volunteers. Cultivation and fundraising events can require a bit of social finesse and skill. Fundraisers have an innate ability to talk to anyone about anything. Our colleagues and volunteers may not be as comfortable chatting up a stranger. A good fundraiser can help others be great representatives for their organization.
