Jeremy Gregg asks his fellow fundraisers, "What fuels your philanthropassion?" As one who works with clients who are potentially donors, what fuels my passion for the work is what motivated me as a teacher of the liberal arts. I believe each of us has a problems that we might take to a priest or therapist. We also have a daylight self that gets on well enough. And we have at certain rare moments access to a better self rooted in traditions and communities that go deep and may span centuries or milennia. Accessing that moment of vision, that inspired self, that moment of grace in which the most surprised person in the room may be the client, as he or she hears himself say, perhaps for the first time what he or she most cares about, that is what I enjoy most in my professional role, as Morals Tutor to America's Wealthiest Families.
