Being a fundraiser means more than just fundraising. Fundraisers are the connection between donors and causes, the catalysts that make philanthropy happen. No two fundraisers are alike just like no two causes or campaigns are alike. Fundraising is about what you want it to be- what you want to focus on and what impact you want to have on the world. It is only limited by your imagination.

What impact will you have on fundraising in 2015?
