GIV­ING PUSH­BACK

The Walrus - - LETTERS -

There is noth­ing wrong with anony­mous giv­ing (“Is Anony­mously Funded Health Re­search Too Risky?” the­wal­rus.ca). As part of the As­so­ci­a­tion of Fundrais­ing Pro­fes­sion­als, I be­lieve the real is­sue at hand is the need for char­i­ties to re­view and an­a­lyze any ma­jor gift, anony­mous or oth­er­wise, to en­sure the gift and the donor’s in­tent fall within the scope of the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s mis­sion and to con­sider any po­ten­tial rami cations. But ques­tion­ing a donor’s in­tent be­cause the gift is anony­mous isn’t con­struc­tive.
