Is your Philanthropy program the next Singer?

How many fundraising efforts die from stagnation? How many times do we do the same things over and over and expect different results? Sometimes best practices is not best practice, but the default go to brought on by years of default go to positions.

From Seth Godin “More now than ever, success today is no guarantee of success tomorrow. Sometimes we spend more time than we should defending the old thing, instead of working to take advantage of the new thing. I bet you can list a dozen “critical” industries that will be as relevant to life in 2020 as Singer is to our world today.”

What would you throw out/do differently/overhaul if you had the courage to do so?

Question the status quo, even AND especially if it is bringing you good results.  Stay ahead of the curve. Question assumptions, question the default go to position. Doing nothing different will ensure the same results. Make sure those are the results you are looking for.
