Best Time to Plant Trees

For Impact Ideas | | Tom Suddes

“The best time to plant trees was 20 years ago. The next best time is NOW.”

A great line from a wonderful, young, smart woman who is leading a healthcare foundation. She shared this during a conference/coaching call last Friday, and it really stuck.

Nick and I spent time last week with 4 or 5 great organizations talking about our Holistic (Today Tomorrow Forever) Model… and the need to ‘plant trees now‘! (Especially Legacy Gifts).

*This quote should be in front of every Development Officer/Advancement Officer as motivation MAXIMIZE RELATIONSHIPS… at THIS GIVEN MOMENT. (Again, plant trees now!)
