Hello! This is Ken Jones, CVO of Above Goal
The topic for this mini briefing is Building a Culture of Philanthropy and this will probably be my shortest briefing for the season.
Here is my idea. It's totally untested, but if you want to talk about it call me and we'll talk about it. I want you to consider giving every staff member a portfolio of 3 $25 donors and making them retain and grow those relationships as part of the performance review. That’s my high bar of what a culture of philanthropy looks like. If you want a culture of philanthropy go build one. That’s all I have to add to this topic.
As an exercise, have a Friday donor thank-a-thon where you serve lunch and call and thank donors that are not major gift prospects. I've seen this done in other organizations and it's just a great great idea.

Have a great day
Above Goal has identified 9 common pain points that are experienced in day-to-day executive and revenue leadership. We'd like to know if these 9 pain points are a challenge for you so we can develop tools to help you raise more money for your organization. Would you consider taking a brief 3-minute virtual fundraising/development assessment so we can learn about the day-to-day experience managing fundraising at your organization and sub-sector? As a thank you, we have prepared a private fundraising resources blog that you can access at the end of the brief assessment.
