“The most important thing you can do to ensure you are being effective as a person giving money away is to do a lot of self-evaluation first.” 

– Sybil Ackerman-Munson
Episode #44

Overview

In this episode of What the Fundraising Podcast…

Sybil Ackerman-Munson and I discuss what nonprofits can do to level up their pitch when asking foundation funders for money. In addition, Sybil gives us an insider’s perspective on how funders can make sure they are being effective and impactful when donating to reduce the risk of burnout and to ensure they feel fulfilled in the end.

At one time, Sybil worked as a director of programs and a fundraiser for a nonprofit organization. It wasn’t until she was approached by a donor to run his foundation that she entered into the funder world. Now, she works with the trustees of 200+ foundations and comes with a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to the nonprofit sector and foundation funding. Notably, Sybil has established a business called Do Your Good as a means of helping organizations streamline their workflows when it comes to pitching their nonprofit and asking for funds.

As she has extensive experience in both sectors, Sybil gives us a clear picture of what the relationships between the two look like through her captivating tell-all stories! Listen now to get all the great takeaways from this episode.
