Dear Mr. Moran:

I want to be the one who translates your vision for The Wentworth Foundation into results as your Executive Director. Over the years, I’ve done just that for not-for-profit entities that range from a large university to a humane society to a minority arts festival to a science museum to a family and career services provider.

How well did I do? On the next pages, you’ll read about some two dozen documented contributions. But I thought you deserved more than a typical resume, with its sterile lists of job titles and responsibilities.

In their place are examples of donors found and retained, funds raised, staff and volunteers inspired, services expanded-in short, everything The Wentworth Foundation should have to be the center of excellence in the field. However, even a specially tailored resume format can’t show how I’ve built my track record.

Behind the results is this professional code that guides all I do:

  • Building financial support is good; keeping financial support growing is better.
  • Making your organization more visible is good; having it synonymous with its function is better.
  • Recruiting volunteers is good; keeping them is not only better, it’s more fun. Now I am ready to put all my energy to work for The Wentworth Foundation.

However, when it comes to your special needs, words on paper are no substitute for personal conversations. May I call around the middle of next week to hear about your organization’s special needs?
