Goodbye from Claudia

This is my last post on the GIFT blog, at least for now.I’ve been at it for a year and am about to embark on a 4-month sabbatical. It is courtesy of the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation which awards 5 of these to nonprofit leaders every year, and it couldn’t come at a better time for me.

Writing for this blog has been a wonderful experience.I said yes initially because I love to write and because former GIFT staff Manish Vaidya asked me to, and really, who can say no to Manish? In the end, this monthly task has become a vital reflective practice on our fundraising efforts.I’m very grateful for the opportunity and I wish everyone great success with continued endeavors!
