Waaaaaaaayyyyyyy back in the spring (which feels like years ago, tbh), we put out the call to find the best and brightest young minds working in advancement today. The idea was pretty simple: To create a 40 Under 40 list dedicated specifically to fundraisers.
And, well, wow. Did you all deliver. We got SO MANY incredible nominees. In retrospect, it’s entirely possible that we didn’t properly prepare our judges for what a difficult task they were getting themselves into. Because we easily could’ve created two or even three lists. But alliteration dictated that we stick to 40.
We are beyond excited to announce the winners today. Right here, right now. It’s our first ever 40 Under 40 list, and, at least in our opinion, it’s full of some of the brightest, most exciting fundraisers out there.
Check it out to learn more about our process and, much more importantly, what sets each and every member of the list apart from the pack.
(And if you’re interested in the super official press release, you can check that out here.)
