Monday, July 26th, 2010

Fundraising tipsBefore you quiz your candidate about the tax code related to charitable deductions
or the definition of “moves management,” you may wish to ask about the basic skill
set that all successful development officers possess.

1. Personality that generates enthusiasm and optimism.

Great development officers are enthusiastic, happy people. They should not be an emotional drain on others, but leave those with whom they interact with a feeling of possibility and optimism. They actually believe that people will give them money to help fulfill their mission.
