One of our favorite “breakthrough” moments: when social impact organizations realize they have the ability, the permision, the imperative to ask for support.
Too many organization do not believe they will receive support. Too many organizations lack the confidence to engage their stakeholder community for support. Too many organizations wait until they need support, intead of creating opportunities and utilizing opportunities to build support.
Allowing your organization to think big, to embrace ambition, to allow success is daunting. Your organization already takes risks by existing with purpose for social good, at a time of great challenges and increasing demand for change.
At the very least, your organization has earned its space for recognition, appreciation, and support.
Do not wait for the right time to engage. That time already arrived, and will not wait for you..
