Love is in the air!
Here is our favorite love story ... about two of our best friends in the nonprofit world. Their names are Fundraising and Finance.
Our friend Finance is not so sexy :) But he is intelligent, organized and precise.
Fundraising is way hotter than Finance. She’s exciting, inspiring, and passion-driven. And everyone loves to focus their attention on her.
When you invite Fundraising to dinner, Finance has to come along. (The good news is, Finance always picks up the tab. Ha!) Fundraising will make your heart melt with the stories she tells and her big energy and hope. But at dinner Finance will talk about cash flow, budgeting, operating reserves, and payroll expenses. You know, all the pesky little details that actually matter. Who invited that person? Sheesh! We know. Finance isn’t sexy, but Fundraising without Finance is just short-sighted.
At first, they seem like an unlikely couple but Fundraising and Finance are intimates. Their nonprofit home is a happy, efficient, sustainable, and well-funded place to be.
Like all couples, they can struggle. But when they work together with open continuous communication and feedback, they are an unstoppable team.
That, our friends, is a nonprofit love story.
Q: So, what’s the moral of the story?
A: To build nonprofit sustainability, your finance and fundraising teams must collaborate closely and communicate on a continuous basis.
