TRAINING

The involvement of the board of directors  is crucial to an organization's fundraising success, but many board members feel ill-equipped to play a role in fundraising.

 

Trainings offered: 

  • Individual Giving 101 - an overview of how and why we raise money from individuals

  • The Reluctant Fundraiser - an interactive workshop to help reluctant board members examine the source of their discomfort around fundraising and let go of their fears

  • Beyond Asking - a training to motivate and empower board members to embrace the many ways they can contribute to your organization's fundraising success 

  • Building a Culture of Philanthropy - a training for non-fundraising staff to understand and gain comfort with the role that philanthropy plays in delivering your mission, and learn concrete ways in which they can help

  • Customized board or staff training - got a specific need in mind? Get in touch to discuss how I can help.

COACHING

1:1 or group coaching for CEOs, Executive Directors, Development staff members, or board members to learn and hone asking skills or create results driven fundraising plans.

CREATING A FUNDRAISING PLAN

It all comes down to writing a good plan, and working the plan. If you’ve never written a development plan, I can help. If you’ve got one that needs some dusting off, I can bring fresh, expert eyes. Let’s build a results-driven, donor-focused plan that brings sustainability and growth to your mission.

Need help with just a subset of your work? I can help create a plan for acquisition, cultivation, solicitation, stewardship, or creating a mid-level, major, or planned giving program.

PLANNED GIVING

With the historic transfer of wealth happening right now, you can't afford not to be engaging your donors in planned giving. I can provide program planning, including:

  • how to get started

  • infrastructure needs

  • how to identify estate giving prospects 

  • how to broach the topic

  • how to steward these special donors

I can also make connections to technical advisors to help with specific, advanced planned gifts.

DATA PLANNING, PROCEDURES, IMPLEMENTATION, MAXIMIZATION

Operations are a passion for me! Need help figuring out how to get the most from your database? How to tighten your recordkeeping and receipting processes? How to write a database policy manual that works for your organization? How to track activity in a way that is easily reportable? I can help!

ONGOING STRATEGIC COUNSEL

Retainer plans are available for the organization that needs an expert in its back pocket.
