Best philanthropic opportunity ever

exitsign Many, many years ago, when my wife worked in prospect research along with some Major Gift Officers, I used to joke that I wanted to be a Minor Gift Officer, specializing in very small gifts. Instead of bringing potential donors to expensive restaurants, I'd bring them to Friendly's. I once amused myself (if not the other people at the dinner table) by suggesting that, instead of getting donors who would put their names on the front of buildings, I would get donors who would give enough money to sponsor an exit sign. At MASS MoCA this weekend, I saw that someone got there before me.
