You’re in a buffet line at a local Rotary meeting. Ahead of you, you see a board member talking to the biggest philanthropist in your community, one that hasn’t yet donated to your nonprofit. Then you hear her ask your board member, “You’re on that nonprofit’s board? What do they do anyway?”
Fear or Excitement?
Does your heart start furiously pounding with excitement? Are you convinced he’ll give a compelling answer? Something that will get her interested in donating to your organization?
Or does your heart sink in fear? Certain this will result in an answer like “Oh, I don’t know, but they’re good people”? One that ends in another lost opportunity?
