I want to make contact with a development director for whom I did foundation grant writing but don't want to sound like I'm begging for a job. I last had contact with her in 2013 and donated to their gala last year without attending.
What's the best way to reach out? I could offer to do more contract work or see if they could use a volunteer on a government grant project. Also, should I divulge, in confidence, about what has been going on for me or not?
