I don’t consider myself a fundraiser at all. Yes, I worked as a grant writer for a not-for-profit theatre company for two years fresh out of college, but writing proposals to large foundations asking for funding hardly matches the hustle it takes to be a real deal fundraiser, grassroots style.

So your goal is to get in better shape. Congratulations! You come up with a diet and a workout routine and plan to make significant life changes to get fit. Before you begin, you weigh yourself and take measurements to track your progress. Just like in fitness ads, you need a before and after picture. You can’t have a goal weight or waist size without knowing from where you’re starting.

I want to tell you about The Perfect Website Redesign Project. It happened about a year ago with the Palo Alto Dance Theater Company (or PADT for short), an arts organization started by a group of software engineers in Silicon Valley with a mission to balance the lives of desk-bound coders with inspiring dance programs.
