Rob Cummings Consulting

“We fret about things that really don’t matter to our donors. We spend way too much time thinking about HOW donors will make their gift. Our task is to help them understand WHY they should invest in us. How donors give will change. Why the donor gives has remained the same for a hundred years, and always will.”
