Donor fatique

In this last week I've received 7 or 8 different pitches/invitations from 3 different nonprofits and 1 PAC for donations and/or participation on host committees.

If I'm considered the equivalent of a venture funder or customer then these organizations aren't doing something right -- I suppose they have prequalified me well since I am interested in supporting all four organizations but their timing is terrible. I just don't have the funds or the time to deal with all of the requests.

Is there anything they could have done about it? Well, the one that's sent 3 or 4 pitches could definitely have. Maybe it is time for these organizations in San Francisco coordinate their efforts.
