Fundraisers Creed

I was talking with a client about legacy giving and it led me to contemplating what we, as fundraisers, leave as our own legacy. Many moons ago, Jerry Panas gave me a copy of his Fundraiser’s Creed.

It spoke to me then and it speaks to me now. I wanted to share it–especially for those of us who help so many others realize their dreams through philanthropy. Jerry’s words are, of course, inspirational. Enjoy!
