New Director of Development Questions

New Director of Development Questions

I’m starting a new job as Fundraising Director for a nonprofit. They already have a connected board and have somehow raised more than a million dollars. I’ve done development before but never at this level- they want me to create and implement their strategy etc. I feel like I’m punching above my weight and I need help. The issue is, I don’t even really know what questions to ask. I talked my way into this job but now don’t know how to execute. Obviously I can’t let in to my employers that I don’t know what I’m doing because then they’d learn I’m not up to the task lol.

1- Are there any intro to fundraising resources that you recommend? (Like as basic as annual vs campaign etc) 2- What logistical tools do you recommend for donor development? 3- What questions should I ask a consultant (if I hire one on the side) to help me make the development infrastructure for the nonprofit?
