I can never remember anybody at school advising the careers officer that they wanted to be a legacy fundraiser. I doubt any of us would have understood what it meant, let alone the importance or value of this form of fundraising. Perhaps it’s not ‘sexy' enough.

I personally don’t think anyone can ever be "the best" as there is always so much to learn and the fundraising world changes so fast that it is our job to think out of the box and make the most out of every event, meeting and pitch that you undertake.
