Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I hope you all had a deliriously amazing summer and are recharged and recommitted to our shared vocation. It’s time to sit up straight, roll up your sleeves, and get down to the important work of raising the money that fuels the mission of our nonprofit organizations.
Since the launch of #fundchat in June 2011, our goal has been to create an online community of nonprofit professionals who can discuss, debate, share, and inspire one another about the work we do. You may have noticed that there hasn’t been a regular #fundchat meetup since May.
Summer typically is a slower time, but truth be told, I was thinking about throwing in the towel.After some soul searching and a few encouraging tweets, it’s time to revive #fundchat. In the next couple of weeks, we’ll announce the details of our next discussion.
