There are countless life-lessons you can learn from Star Wars. Among all the characters in the universe, you’d be hard-pressed to find one wiser than Yoda. Fundraisers, especially, can glean much from his wisdom.

To celebrate the release of Star Wars Episode VII, here are seven times that @FundraisingYoda taught us the ways of the Fundraising Force:

1. On donor stewardship:

2. On service recovery:

3. On organizational purpose:

4. On fundraising appeals:

5. On donor love:

6. On gift acknowledgement:

7. On donor engagement:

If you aren’t following @FundraisingYoda, now is the perfect time to start.

May the Force be with you!
