Why a Good Nonprofit Fundraiser is hard to Keep: Money – Part I
What’s love got to do with it? Show me the money. I recently read Chronicle of Philanthropy contributor Holly Hall’s article about the need to Shake Up Development Offices and Curb Turnover. She cites Penelope Burk’s five years of research which have culminated in a new book, Donor-Centered Leadership as well as a much-talked-about study by CompassPoint and the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund that found half of chief development officers plan to leave their jobs in two years or less. And 40% plan to leave fundraising entirely.
What’s going on, and how can you fix it? Is it about money, or something else?Details
