The CEO Is the Quarterback for Organizational Fundraising

March 20, 2020 / F. DUKE HADDAD

I just learned that the CEO of my organization is leaving in three months, and his successor has been named. In my organization, executive rotation is the norm after a period of years. Still, leadership change is unsettling especially when you are the chief development officer engaged in a silent phase campaign. I have worked with many CEOs in my career. Some understood what their role in fundraising was going to be. Others knew exactly what their role was, but chose not to engage.
