Kansas City, MO Chapter Member Writes for Philanthropy Daily: How to Fundraise for Causes You’re Passionate About

Sadie Elliott, IWN Kansas City, MO Chapter Member was recently published in Philanthropy Daily. In her opinion piece, Sadie gets honest about the inner workings that can cause beloved, long-standing organizations to find themselves in crisis.

“When I heard that my alma mater, The King’s College, might be closing its doors, I was devastated. Somehow, despite my disappointment, I was unfazed.”

Rather than watch her alma mater sink by way of leadership misinformed on best-practices for raising money, Sadie sprung into action, using her years of experience in donor development training for more than 350 leaders of K-12 schools.

“…I would suggest that all our problems are in fact people problems, and the solution is relational.” Sadie writes. From her laptop in a wine shop in Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay, along with 40 other alumni, she made a plan to raise $1 million in 1 week.
