How Jargon Destroys Nonprofit Fundraising & Marketing
I hate jargon. With a passion.
Hate it. Hate it. Hate it.
Just. Can’t. Stand. It!
Yes, I guess you could call it a pet peeve.

“language used by a particular group of people, especially in their work, and which most other people do not understand”
— Cambridge dictionary.
Jargon = Failure to Communicate

Are you just trying to make yourself look smart?
Because, trust me, that’s not how it comes across.Details
