I chatted recently with Eliot Spitzer’s former finance director, Cynthia Darrison, who spent eight years building his fund-raising operation and is now in business for herself.
Darrison Barrett & Associates L.L.C. will essentially be in the business of teaching people about the craft of fund-raising.
“I don’t think donors themselves are necessarily in tune with why they’re giving,” she said.
Her ministrations, she said, would be “kind of like therapy.”
