The inspiration for this festive post started with something I read on Jeff Brooks’ Future Fundraising Now blog - Almost everything I know about fundraising I learned from Christmas carols. In Jeff’s blog, he draws strong correlations between Christmas carols and fundraising strategies, concepts, and principals.
I’ve written a variation on that theme. I selected two carols and rewrote the lyrics. There’s a carol for membership associations based on the tune “Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!” And I have another carol for charitable nonprofits based on the tune, “Angels We Have Heard On High!”
But I’ve also taken it one step farther. I’ve set them to music . . . well, sort of. When you click on the link below you’ll find an mp3 audio file. It’s a recording of me – Karen Zapp – singing these two carols.
DISCLAIMER – I’m not a professional singer!! Far from it. I don’t even qualify for the church choir. But I won’t torture you with teeth-knashing karaoke either.
So if you’re ready to be entertained, here I am singing (or at least trying to sing) a carol for membership associations and all they do for the world; and a carol for charitable nonprofits and the good they do. (Click the link below!)Christmas Fundraising Carols - sung by Karen Zapp
My best to you for a wonderful holiday season. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.
