About Baumgartner brown consulting
The non-profit sector has a problem.
Young development professionals tend to spend the first part of their career bouncing from organization to organization and then… they leave non-profits all together. Time after time, communities find their non-profits divided into two classes: the ones who have managed to snag development superstars and the ones who barely have time to get business cards printed before their new hire heads out for her next job. Long-term development professionals mean extended relationships with donors and an increased sense of institutional knowledge. A revolving door means you are investing in a search every two years and your development department almost starts from scratch.
