It was great to see someone recently coin exactly what fundraisers across the sector have been trying to put into words for a while now.
“This is a fundraising office
Treasury of the voluntary sector
Engine room of the change charities bring to the world
Through this office we connect the people who want to change the world with the people whocan change it
We convert their ideals into the funding that allows charities to achieve their missions and visions
We underwrite charities’ successes and insure against their failures
Friend you are about to enter sacred ground
This is a fundraising office.”
Ian Macquillan, Fundraising Manifesto, 11th April 2014
What we like most about Ian’s manifesto is that it applies to fundraisers of any type; whether you work for a charity, as a telephone fundraiser or as a street fundraiser ..you can relate to this and know you’re not ‘just a fundraiser‘ your ‘A FUNDRAISER‘, changing the world everyday – so be proud!
