Recently I was reminded of a blog post I wrote four years ago that got a lot of attention.
Some of the reactions were not so kind. Here’s what some said about the blog article I wrote back then:
“Your assertions demonstrate that you clearly ARE from outside the fundraising world.”
“It seems that you are confused about what “planned giving” means.”
“I would say 99% of non-profit staff cannot “plan gifts” for an organization. Unless they happen to have one too many fully funded retirement plans that they would like to leave behind to lower the burden of inheritance tax on their children.”
“I would submit that there are a lot of development people out there who could fill you in on the inaccuracy of your statement. And by the way, fundraising is not a subset of anything.
Check out the blog post and the thread of comments. Then, let me know what you think.
