I find it increasingly frustrating that working within an organisation that as the sole fundraiser, Im looked to for all the ideas. But Im hardly best placed to do so as Im less in contact with those delivering the work on the ground. EVERYONE in an organisation has a responsibility to look for opportunities, yes I can help develop these ideas into something that maybe fundable, but I can’t come up with the ideas.
The other danger is that all new initiatives will follow my favoured areas of work and interests which may well be out of touch with what is needed. Rant over.
