Futures in Fundraising

Futures in Fundraising is a new, interview-based podcast that focuses on careers in fundraising and development. Futures in Fundraising consists of interviews with leading and emerging fundraising, development and nonprofit professionals. While focusing on the interviewee’s fundraising journey – their experience in the field, tough situations, lessons learned and their “Ah-ha!” moments, as well as advice for those seeking to advance their careers in fundraising – we hope to bring new inspiration and light to unique, as well as typical, situations that fundraisers face. Each episode is approximately 25-30 minutes in length…just long enough for a commute to work, a walk with the dog or a half-hour workout! Futures in Fundraising is available for download for FREE on iTunes and through the Futures in Fundraising website. New episodes released monthly! So JOIN US and prepare for YOUR future in fundraising!

Josh Newton, President and CEO of the UConn Foundation

 

Success quote: “There is no limit to what a man can do or where he can go if he doesn’t mind who gets the credit.” – Robert W. Woodruff

 

Best piece of advice Josh has ever received: “When you see a turtle on a fencepost it didn’t get there by itself.” No matter where you go and what you do, remember the people that have helped you get to that point.

 

Personal habit that contributes to David’s success: Planning/scheduling. At any moment, Josh is scheduled for the next 3 months.

David King, President of Alexander Haas

 

Success quote: “Either do it right or don’t do it at all” –

 

Best piece of advice David has ever received: “(Paraphrasing Alan Weiss:) Don’t sell your time – sell your experience, expertise and the knowledge that you have gained over many years of work that has great value that can’t be replicated. The only people that sell their time are people who have nothing else to sell.” -Alan Weiss, “Million Dollar Consulting”

 

Personal habit that contributes to David’s success: Organize everything that needs to be done into 3 buckets: Must do, should do and could do. Must do – things that absolutely have to get done, that are mission-critical, that, if not done, can derail the project. Should do – things that would add value to what’s being worked on and should do if all of the Must Do things are done. They will add value if done but will not train wreck the project if they are not completed. Could Do – could add marginal value but probably would not be missed if they’re not done. Could Do’s should NEVER be done after 5 o’clock or on the weekend.

Parting piece of advice: Find a job that you enjoy.
