In our fundraising careers we meet many amazing donors. Together, we take part in making change. Their philanthropic gifts change lives and communities. Our nonprofit organizations are changed because of their generosity. And as professional fundraisers we are moved, touched and impacted by their philanthropic vision and passion. Every donor makes a difference.

And then on rare occasions fundraisers have the opportunity to share space with philanthropists who have lived extraordinary lives. I am fortunate to have met Richard Lim. He is an alum of Monash Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and owns Lim’s Pharmacy in Springvale with his wife Ann also a graduate of the Faculty. I was honoured to see his story shared with fellow Monash alumni and donors in Monash Life and thought I would share it with you. Please feel free to pass it on to inspire someone you know. I will leave it there for you to read about Richard. He is an inspiration to me and many, many, many others.
