Of all the relationships we will have with our colleagues during our nonprofit careers as development directors, the most rewarding- and one of the most challenging- will be with the Executive Directors we work with. In an ideal fundraising world, we aspire to create a united front between the development director and the executive director that will give us financial and organizational success.
Our E.D.’s can become our best advocate, as well as the best advocate for healthy fundraising in our organizations. The combined skills of ED and DOD will educate board members, build trust in their responsibility for raising money, and generate enthusiasm for the process that you will need to draw on again and again.
