Hail and farewell to a friend.

Tony Elischer, AFP Congress 2012

Remembering Tony Elischer at the scene of one of his great triumphs, Fundraising Theatre, AFP Congress 2012

The not-for-profit world has lost a true giant. Tony Elischer, of Think Consulting in the UK, passed away on Tuesday. His death came as a shock, although we knew he had been ill.

Tony was an inspiring presenter known for searching the world for hints of what the future of fundraising might hold and then presenting his Futurology with professional polish and a big dash of humour. He was always willing to share his expertise and to mentor young and up-and-coming fundraisers.  But I will remember Tony most for his love of life, good food and wine and for the many entertaining meals we shared in Toronto and elsewhere, discussing our profession and the people in it.

He was ST’s partner in our Stewardship Tracker offering, a great supporter of AFP Toronto and of the Resource Alliance, and most of all, he was a great friend to many of us in life. Our hearts go out to Tony’s family and colleagues.

Goodbye Tony. We’re really going to miss you.
