Who we are and how we view fundraising has everything to do with our impact. In this video, Martin touches upon the following:

1. We enjoy a fulfilling vocation
2. We do honorable work
3. We give, then ask
4. We develop donors; we develop people
5. We manifest ourselves to the world, as we grow as persons and develop our craft
6. We are trustworthy, we are virtuous
