connections I have made have been extremely valuable
in my pursuit of knowledge for creating better homes
and efficient buildings."
Many hands make light work. The Capacity
Campaign is being driven by the NESEA Board of
Directors. Each Board member has made a significant
personal financial contribution. And each Board
member is participating by meeting with and
cultivating people in their networks that they believe
would be interested in supporting NESEA.
It feels good to give. Devan Folts, our
Communications & Development Director, refers
to fundraising and development as "the transfer of
enthusiasm." It's easy to ask somebody to support a
cause you believe in. NESEA members often wear their
hearts on their sleeves - they are so passionate about
the work that they do, and by extension about the
ways NESEA supports their work. We're simply giving
them the opportunity to be a part of something bigger.
People donate and engage in many different
ways. Some members have told us that they are not
in a position to make a financial contribution. Others
have said that they would prefer to donate time (by
mentoring an emerging professional or serving on a
NESEA committee) than to donate money. Donations
come in many forms: time, talent and treasure. And
often people donate money to the organizations they

invest their time and talent in. It's all good. As we build
NESEA's capacity, we hope you'll contribute in the way
that feels most impactful to you.
I close this letter with the recognition that you won't
read it for another 2 months. Things are unfolding
so quickly here at NESEA that this lag seems like
an eternity. But I'm hoping that the lessons we are
learning in this Capacity Campaign endure long past the
publication date of this magazine. And, of course, that
new lessons will continue to emerge.
