The nonprofit sector, like any industry, comes with its own trials and triumphs. Whatever your organization’s cause or size, there are a few feelings we can all identify with. Here are 15 GIFs that capture what it’s like for nonprofit professionals.
1. When a celebrity (or anyone with over 1,000 Twitter followers) mentions your organization.
2. When you present to a major donor and they shut you down.
3. When you submit your grant application two minutes before the deadline.
4. “Oh you work for a nonprofit? I bet you’re getting some good career experience.”
5. When you hit your campaign’s capital goal.
6. “I don’t give to charities. They’re all corrupt.”
7. “Why would we spend money on fundraising?”
8. When you secure a matching partner.
9. When you wrote an awesome email appeal…and forgot to include the donation page link.
10. When someone who’s never donated before makes a recurring gift.
