Translating skills from the for-profit world to non-profit
Get Fully Funded
FEBRUARY 14, 2011
Lots of people take jobs in nonprofit fundraising and assume their sales or other corporate skills will transfer. Skills/concepts that translate: Marketing concepts are the same in for-profit as in non-profit. Customer service works very well in the nonprofit. Donors, volunteers, and people in the community enjoy being treated well and sort of expect it from nonprofit organizations. In the for-profit world, it’s all about me, me, me.
