Three Tips for Fundraising Managers


Hi, I am Sachin and today I am going to share with you three tips for fundraising managers. Let’s jump into it. Tip #1:Know your team well. It’s very important for managers, leaders, to understand the strengths and weaknesses of your team members. Some of the ways that you could do that Is by having regular 1-1 conversations with them. Try and understand the aspirations and motivations that your team members have And invest genuinely in building their capacity. One of the things that you could also do is to go out with your team members. Spend time with them. Spend quality time with them after work. Play sports with them. I think that’s something that really would help create a bond between you and your team. Tip #2: Target Setting As fundraising managers We should set targets that are realistic and ambitious at the same time. Never set targets that our teams can’t achieve. Cause if you do that, it would lead to demotivation of your team members. So make sure that you know the right balance between what a realistic and an ambitious targets is and a target which is completely not achievable. And if it requires you to go and talk to your management About that and fight for it, you should do that. That’s what a good manager does. Never give unrealistic targets to your team members. That will destroy a team. Tip #3: Lead from the front As managers and leaders we should take complete ownership Of the successes and the failures of our teams. And we should do whatever we can To support our team To be able to achieve what we want to achieve together. Never just leave it to the teams to go out there and do what they are supposed to do. As managers it is our job to be with them at every step. And that’s what we should do. So those were my three tips, at the end I would just say one thing In fundraising, the success and failure of any organization depends on how good a team you have. And good managers build good teams. So good luck to all of you, I hope you found this useful. See you all next week. Bye!
