Have you been the “recipient of a gift” only to find out that strings were attached?  Were you ever promised a commission on the amount of money that you were expected to raise?  Has a donor specifically requested that their funds be designated for a particular purpose but someone within your organization asked that you use them for something else?  These are just some of the dilemmas that fundraising professionals may face.  The answers to these situations may seem simple in theory but may be much more difficult when they are real life scenarios.  Join this session for what promises to be a lively, fun, and informative discussion that will address real life issues that you are sure to be confronted with during your fundraising career.
