Major gift fundraising can be a wonderful experience for donors and for the nonprofit. The results are great - both for donors and for the nonprofits. But an unseemly truth about major gift fundraising is: it's hard. There are times of long, disciplined waiting.
I recently talked to Bill Littlejohn about leading fundraising efforts. He said that fundraising plans seem to go wrong immediately after we start them. He had a great way to frame the work. He reminds people to "Honor the Process."
