Some of us may love the work, but maintaining your team’s database isn’t always easy! For anyone who’s ever had this role at a nonprofit (and for those folks who have ever worked with that person), here are 20 things that have likely crossed our minds at some point in time.

For background, I was hired to support our nonprofit constituents by being a face for our organization.

Salesforce wasn’t part of the equation.
