Chattin with Nonprofit Chapin
The term “nonprofit” and the vocabulary within the sector is misused and misunderstood. For example, I believe the word “fundraising” gets a bad reputation. From experience, I know this is one of the hardest jobs I had to do and from time to time still have to do within my organization.
I can be walking down the street, and a familiar face would avoid me due to an open pledge. Chasing people down and asking for a donation is hard to do all in the same breath (big laugh). Good thing there’s great people out there willing to do this hard work for me and my organization.
Chapin Cole is one of those individuals. Her generous heart was formed at early age to give back. Chapin stated in the podcast, “Fundraising doesn’t have to be scary.” Listen to her talk about “Being the Champions” of raising money.
The Problem: nonprofits lack financial resources.
The Challenge: Chapin couldn’t help nonprofits by “working” for someone else.
The Solution: she started her own company.
