Taking a Different Look

Too often, once we get to know something—once we master a skill or learn some new knowledge—we take it for granted. We tend to think about it in the same way, from the same point of view. And that can be deleterious—for our fundraising, for our causes and for own personal success.

The July 2019 Advancing Philanthropy challenges you to take a new look at issues you probably think you know well. Paul Pribbenow calls on you to not just practice ethics and fundraising, but to integrate them into your life. Susan Raymond provides a whole new perspective on the issue of poverty. Nneka Allen suggests we rethink our notions of giving and what it means to be a philanthropist. And as always, this issue has the fundraising nuts and bolts you need to keep up with the changing profession—including our first-ever Fundraising Toolkit—along with ideas and innovations that will cause you to…take a different look.
