In this episode, Margaret and David speak with Anne Murphy about navigating power dynamics in fundraising. Anne is the Senior Director of the Division of Business and Engineering at Oregon State University Foundation and the founder of Fundraise Without Fear.
Anne walks us through several different scenarios where these power differentials were in play, including with donors, with beneficiaries of our good work, and with organizations.
Anne encourages listeners and leaders to find the sweet spot between being within their organization’s story and finding personal authenticity, which requires creating trust and safety within a team.
She also writes about this topic in her blog post.
