James Cheng, one of our board members, is well known for his karaoke talents at #NEDRAafterdark, but did you know he is also a talented lyrical parodist? It's true! Here, for your entertainment, is his take on Les Mis--from the prospect development perspective!


One Day More (‘Til NEDRAcon)

by James Cheng

 

[Senior Researcher]

One day more

Another link, another charity

This never-ending road to capacity

Prospects who seem to own a dime

Will surely be worth all my time

One day more

 

[New Researcher]

I did not rate until today

How do I go on rating smarter?

 

[Senior Researcher]

One day more

 

[New Researcher & Gift Officer]

Tomorrow you’ll be miles away

In hopes to steward some gifts much larger

 

[Senior Researcher]

One day more

 

[Fundraising Data Scientist]

One more day on OLS

 

[New Researcher & Gift Officer]

Will they contact us again?

 

[Fundraising Data Scientist]

One more variance not sharing

 

[New Researcher & Gift Officer]

All these profiles should be used

 

[Fundraising Data Scientist]

What these model scores will show

 

[New Researcher & Gift Officer]

We’ve got donors to renew

 

[Fundraising Data Scientist]

New prospects are really there

 

[Prospect Manager]

One more ‘folio to form

 

[New Researcher]

Dare I ask where prospects go?

 

[Prospect Manager]

To the GO’s who should see them

 

[New Researcher]

Shall I merge these records here?

 

[Prospect Manager]

Call before cold prospects form

 

[New Researcher]

Would my GO really dare?

 

[Prospect Manager]

Will you rank this list with me?

 

[All]

The time is now, NEDRA is here!

 

[Senior Researcher]

One day more

 

[Hawkish Regulatory Legislator]

One more over regulation

Cutting insights in the bud

Send back data scraping new toys

To the time before The Flood

 

[Senior Researcher]

One day more

 

[Outgoing NEDRA Board Members]

Years we’ve run amuck

Many conference calls

We’ve had so much luck

It’s time to pass the ball

New Board here’s a tip

Laugh out loud a bunch

Work hard but play as well

We will miss you much!

#NEDRAcon’s here, I go with you

 

[Senior Researcher]

One day more

 

[New Researcher & Gift Officer]

Collaborated much today

 

[Fundraising Data Scientist]

One more model or make scones

 

[New Researcher & Gift Officer]

Why wait to get the contacts started?

 

[Hawkish Regulatory Legislator (overlapping)]

We will redact down to zeros

All the websites that they go

We will keep wealth knowledge secret

So that no one will ever know

 

[Senior Researcher]

One day more

 

[New Researcher & Gift Officer]

Tomorrow you’ll be miles away

 

[Fundraising Data Scientist]

Gifts predicted will be known

 

[New Researcher & Gift Officer]

We’re so glad we collaborated

 

[Hawkish Regulatory Legislator (overlapping)]

One more over regulation

Cutting insights in the bud

Send back data scraping new toys

 

[Outgoing NEDRA Board Members (overlapping)]

Years we’ve run amuck

Many conference calls

We’ve had so much luck

It’s time to pass the ball

 

[Senior Researcher]

But now we will have bootcamp day

FDSS is the same day

 

[ALL]

Tomorrow we’ll discover

What the NEDRA conf’rence has in store

One more dawn

One more day

One day more
