Are you stuck in a fundraising environment that has become too complicated for its own good? 
Dealing with bureaucracy and complication at work is not fun. In fact, it's the worst. This type of environment makes fundraising harder than it needs to be. It sucks the life out of the work you love and can actually prevent you from truly connecting with donors and creating something incredible with their support.
So, what does it take to have an amazing work environment? You can’t just have great coworkers and a Mission that makes you excited to wake up in the morning. You also need reasonable expectations that allow you to really do your work– to make connections, to generate huge donations, and to impact the world. 
If you’re looking for this kind of environment…if you’re ready to rediscover why you love fundraising… keep reading!
