Volunteer | Tip of the Morning to You

Aug 06, 2020

Welcome to “Tip of the Morning, to you!” where Cathy shares a quick tip about the Fundraiser’s 4-step Learning and Action Journey. The journey is a common path that fundraisers follow as they move through their careers.

Step 2 of the journey is called "Building the Plane While Flying It." You’ve been at it for a while now and have learned so much. In fact, you might a bit overwhelmed. There is so much to do and still you have TO RAISE MONEY! You’re keen to learn even more.

Tip #5: VOLUNTEER. Cathy can’t state this enough. When you’re able to, volunteering will add an important perspective to your work. You can learn so much from sitting on a board. Cathy came to understand some board/staff dynamics in a different way as a result of finally seeing both sides of the equation. And volunteering with groups you feel passionate about can feed your soul and keep you connected to your passion: social change and the power of communities.
