As more reports of sexual harassment surface in the nonprofit sector, many organizations are revisiting the way they handle reports of misconduct and how their organization can create a culture that is safe for fundraisers. According to a recent survey of over 1,000 fundraisers, nearly half of them have experienced, witnessed, or heard about sexual harassment on the job.
“Front line fundraisers are often conditioned to think that closing the ask is the most important feat. We look our best and do our best so that organizations can be their best. It is a promising practice within our industry, to elevate the needs and interests of donors,” says Tycely Williams, Vice President of Development at YWCA USA and Chair of the Women’s Impact Initiative. “These tips will help fundraisers at all levels better understand and navigate power dynamics. When the needs and interests of donors veer from the mission and result in inappropriate exchanges—we need resources like this to assist in times of frustration, confusion and awkwardness.”
