As empty nesters, my wife and I have more time to volunteer in our community. We really enjoy our volunteer time together - almost as much as vacation.
Recently, we responded to two requests for help. One community organization responded to my wife’s email the very same day. She got an email addressed directly to her that included three quick questions along with several resources and a short video on volunteering. Later that afternoon, the volunteer coordinator followed up with a phone call to my wife and engaged her in a nice comfortable conversation. Impressive!
I responded to the other request with an email offering our services and asking for next steps. That was weeks ago. Still waiting. What does this have to do with development and fundraising?
