Another loss for the non-profit world

I love being in the non-profit world.

I love being a fundraiser in the non-profit world.

I talk up our world all of the time. Non-profits need good pr.

Recently, someone I highly respect, decided to leave our world.

She couldn't take the lack of leadership.

She couldn't take the lack of transparency.

She couldn't take the politics.

I spoke with her several times. I urged her to leave where she was but to please stay in the non-profit world. Not all non-profits are the same and I knew she could land at an amazing non-profit that met her very normal expectations of a work place.

She decided to leave.

I am devastated that she is leaving us.

Non-profits change the world. We save lives and change lives every day. We do work that many would rather not even think about.

I have written about non-profit leadership, and lack of leadership. We need to get it together if we are to be a landing spot for incredible and passionate talent. Those we serve depend on it.

Thanks for reading.
