In baseball, the best all-around players are called “five-tool” ballplayers. These players excel at hitting for average, hitting for power, base running skills and speed, throwing ability, and fielding abilities.  Interestingly, like baseball, the skills that make up a hall-of-fame fundraiser can potentially also be boiled down to five core talents. Those development professionals with the proven ability to raise money, manage up, manage down, work effectively with volunteers, and be strategic are as rare and valuable as the $100 million gift.   Join us to learn what it takes to become a “five-tool” fundraiser and the tools and resources that can help elevate your game to the hall of fame level.
