I stumbled into fundraising quite accidentally. It was the summer after my second year in university and like 90% of students I was desperately looking for a summer job. I saw an ad to work with this company that looked super fun, engaging and most importantly paid $3 more than minimum wage. I was hired immediately and found out that it was for a street canvassing position.
Non-Profits are responsible for achieving their bottom line(s). Every group, organization or association has a social bottom line they are committed to achieve and through that comes commitments to stakeholders, funders, board members, recipients and overall revenues. Although a non-profit is set up in a way to not receive profit for their work, almost every other aspect of their infrastructure is mirrored with the for-profit world.
Before being an entrepreneur was the cool and hip thing to do, and before it was directly associated with being in the tech space, non-profits were being ran by individuals who had no idea what they were doing, but knew why they were doing it. Entrepreneurs are not restricted to the for-profit space.
