People who work in the legal or medical professions see portrayals of their work on TV and in the movies all the time. But I haven't seen a drama or comedy series about nonprofit fundraising (yet!) so whenever a show touches on the topic, my ears prick up. Here are a few I've posted for your amusement:

Like I Don't Know How to Work a Fat Crowd of Suckers
The Mentalist, "The Price Above Rubies," Season 6

Charity of Choice
The Office (U.S.), "Roy's Wedding," Season 9

The Jack and Elizabeth Donaghy High School for Teen Drama, The Arts, and Feelings
30 Rock, "Mrs. Donaghy," Season 5
