"He Said-She Said."

I've read board minutes where my brain goes into whiplash trying to keep up with the back and forth.

"Decisions Were Made."

I've read other sets of minutes where I'm left scratching my head, trying to figure out how a meeting in which two decisions were made took two hours.

The answer is somewhere in between.

What should I tell him?

An executive director new to fundraising posed that question to Cause Effective last week, about a donor stewardship meeting fast coming up.

But that’s the wrong question.

Cause it’s not show and tell – or at least not in that direction.

What might she tell me?

That’s what this meeting is about.

How much can you learn from a face-to-face encounter that will help you, as a nonprofit leader, to understand what the donor gets from funding your group?

Because it’s the outward direction – what he receives; that determines the inward part of the equation – what he gives.
