The leaves are changing color, the beach towels are back in the closet, and summer is receding into memory. That means that we’ve squarely entered the fall fundraising season. Most of our clients are gearing up for the end-of-year fundraising push at the same time they are in the middle of their autumn event season.
In busy times like this it is hard enough to keep pace with the work at hand, let alone look towards the future. Luckily for all of us, the annual Blackbaud Conference for Nonprofits, taking place next week in Nashville, Tennessee, provides a welcome chance to sit down, take stock of the year, and unplug long enough to think about what’s next.
