Random observation on nonprofit fundraising skill demands

This was from a reader who emailed me earlier today:

"I have always bemoaned the skill demands put on non-profit staff. This is especially true of fundraisers who are called upon to produce programs from creation to evaluation and everything in-between. It's unheard of in any field that I am familiar with where the same person does concept, creative, design, copy, budget, production, fulfillment, analysis and evaluation."

Very true indeed...

And, we may quickly add, staff are expected to be experts in all of these functions, even if their training and experience are primarily in one or two.
