Great potential, but still a long journey ahead

Ancient policies and benefits
Lack of a viable major signature fundraising strategy

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the field. People in the senior management positions have been in these roles for decades and seem the most resistant to change and new ideas.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
