[VIDEO] What Fundraisers Should Do — and NOT Do — During the COVID-19 Crisis

This is a must-see video for everyone wondering what to do next during the coronavirus crisis.

Today, I speak with long-time colleague Mary Anne Plummer of Exuberance Unlimited about what fundraisers should be doing — and NOT doing:

  • DO keep raising funds.
  • DO keep in touch with donors.
  • DO get back to basics.
  • DO stay on point.


  • DON’T spend time or money on activities that don’t directly produce measurable fundraising revenue.
  • DON’T do expensive, fancy direct mail packs.
  • DON’T aim campaigns at Millennials.
  • DON’T keep changing direction.

I hope this useful and fun discussion will help you to do your best in these hard times!
