Share your fablanthropy!

Much good happens every day in the nonprofit world. And we want to hear about it! Fundraisers, we’d like to hear your success stories…big and small. By passing on the positive energy, we all benefit.

To help the process along, we’ll focus on different themes for different days of the week. Note: this does NOT mean I’m posting 5 days a week every week! But some weeks I might. You never know 🙂

  • Mission Mondays: for those moments where the mission and philanthropy make a perfect match.
  • Technical Tuesdays: back to the basics … how has a technique made fundraising life good for you lately?
  • Women Wednesdays: female fablanthropy featured here 🙂
  • Thankful Thursdays: stewardship … how are you thanking your donors?
  • Fabulous Fridays: the sky’s the limit! Your brag moment of the week, a personal success or anything covered above is fair game.

I look forward to hearing from you! Email me at lisa@fablanthropy.com if you have a thought to share with your fellow fundraisers.

Welcome to the intersection of fabulous & philanthropy

When I was in high school, my career ambition was to become a teacher. Today, I’m finishing my seventh year of educational fundraising. I love that I have the chance to impact the lives of our future grown-ups, even if not as directly as my colleagues in the classroom get to experience.

Throughout my professional career (a path of journalism, to public relations, to development), I have always been passionate about continuing education, not just for myself but for colleagues too. So, I jumped at the chance in 2014 to complete the AFP Faculty Training Academy and become one of 269 Master Trainers worldwide (that’s 15 in Texas and 6 active in Houston, for those of you counting!).

2015 has been a year of putting this knowledge into practice: 6 conference presentations, a webinar and an article for the Association of Fundraising Professionals magazine are on the schedule. It fills my heart to be able to take my love of learning and nonprofit giving, and share it with others!

This blog will be another way to share. Whether you are a fundraiser, a volunteer, a donor, or a combination of all three (aren’t we all, really?), Fablanthropy will be a source to share what’s fabulous in philanthropy. Which means, I want to hear from you!

Follow along on Twitter too: @fablanthropy. I look forward to the conversation!
