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.
