Do You Know What A Doer Is?

Presenter: Tom Jones

Tom Jones

Doers are the backbone of every successful enterprise, the people who do things the right way for the right reasons. They provide the initiative for new ideas and the energy that drives productivity.

In his latest book, "DOER'S DILEMMA: Why Achievers Suffer And What To Do About It," Tom explains how to recognize a Doer and how the way Doers are supervised will determine the success or failure of a modern organization. Readers are shown how to guide, encourage, and support Doers so that their natural desire to excel is fully utilized.   Tom brings a set of fresh eyes to the client relationship. He is quick to diagnose the depth of the Doers Dilemma in affected organizations. Read More →

Philanthropy is not just about raising money.  More importantly, a culture of philanthropy is about communities coming together, each in their own way, to make a difference.  We are extremely fortunate to have AFP President & CEO Andrew Watt as this year’s keynote speaker.  Andrew Watt represents individuals and organizations internationally instilling and inspiring a culture of philanthropy.  It is our hope that many within our community will join us in welcoming Andrew Watt to Fresno.

A National Study of Challenges Facing Nonprofit Fundraising

Underdeveloped StudyThe newly released study UnderDeveloped: A National Study of Challenges Facing Nonprofit Fundraising reveals that many nonprofits are stuck in a vicious cycle that threatens their ability to raise the resources they need to succeed. A joint project of CompassPoint and the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund, the report found high levels of turnover and lengthy vacancies in development director positions throughout the sector. More significantly, the study reveals deeper issues that contribute to instability in the development director role, including a lack of basic fundraising systems and inadequate attention to fund development among key board and staff leaders.
