Are you getting ready for Giving Tuesday? Sample emails (no option required). What’s in my Inbox.

In The Arrogant and Ignorant CEO Richard Perry of Veritus shares a story about a CEO who already *knows it all.* We’ve had experience with these types of EDs and CEOs ourselves. It’s tough. You love the mission. You love the donors. But it’s time to move on.

How do you measure the *magic* in fundraising? Richard Turner with a timely post.
