In this episode, Margaret Katz Cann and Michelle Maloy Dillon talk with Amy Mauser of Team Kat & Mouse. Amy recalls how she got her start in fundraising — by accepting a challenge to compete in high school for a tiara and title raising money for the American Heart Association. She’s spent decades as a frontline fundraiser and fundraising consultant, and offers her take on how good fundraisers are “born,” and how as fundraising leaders, we can help them from getting lost along the way.
Amy challenges listeners: are you paying enough attention to your pipeline?
You can read Amy’s post on the Fundraising Leadership Blog, where she tells the whole story of competing for that tiara.
