I’m looking forward to spending more time this year in Paris. As the U.S. settles into a new normal, one constant will be European cultural and humanitarian non-profits seeking to learn and borrow from our American expertise in fundraising, development, and friendraising.
This critical work in Europe is personally and professionally gratifying, as it points toward sustainable operations for many iconic organizations migrating away from government support and toward a more diversified funding model. Some of this change is by choice, some comes with the changing economic realities in Europe. All of it matters in stabilizing and growing organizations that define quality of life.
