With more than 20-years of service in the nonprofit sector, I have experienced it all. I know what it’s like to wear many hats -- from volunteer coordinator to development director to executive director (and every role in-between!). I have learned the systems and strategies that lead to stagnation or success -- regardless of agency size, capacity or revenue.
When it comes to a lack of financial resources, I get it. I’ve been there. I understand the long hours, the resourcefulness of stretching every dollar, the embarrassment of returning to that anonymous “bail out” donor for one more donation. At times, this struggle consumed me, causing many restless nights.
I often found myself asking this very question: What needs to happen in order to transition the organization off the “cycle of starvation” and onto a firm path of generating sustainable revenue?
I discovered several powerful insights, one in particular that gave me the answer I was looking for and that ultimately changed the way I viewed fundraising. I discovered that many nonprofit leaders accept a deeply entrenched myth that is crippling growth this sector: the belief that scarcity is a part of nonprofit realty.
What changed for me was recognizing that scarcity does not have to be the reality.
Once I realized this truth, my outlook shifted. I studied and learned the techniques and strategies to create an effective fundraising plan that produces results -- and the path to sustainability became a reality.
I studied and learned the techniques and strategies to create an effective fundraising plan that produces results – and the path to sustainability became a reality. I know what it’s like to make the shift from “stuck” to gaining momentum in fundraising – and the effort it takes to pivot.
Throughout my career I have:
• Raised hundreds-of-thousands of dollars thru direct appeal and monthly giving.
• Reclaimed half-a-million dollars in designated funds through bequests and planned gifts.
• Secured hundreds-of-thousands of dollars in foundation funding.
• Developed creative partnerships with national corporations to support local nonprofits.
• Been featured in local and national media outlets.
• Created an online program to equip fundraisers with the tools and system they need to manage a successful recurring gift campaign.
• Formed my own consulting company through which I have the joy of working with nonprofits across the globe to help them transition their fundraising efforts from under-resourced to generating ongoing support.
Generating the revenue you need to succeed does not have to be stressful or overwhelming. The process should be fun and exciting, drawing from your best energy and creativity.
I believe in creating easy systems that produce results. And, I believe in implementing systems that increase efficiency, capacity, and resources. With the right tools you can generate ongoing financial support for your nonprofit in a way that is easy to manage.
We will start with a full review of your nonprofit's founding, organizational, and fundraising documents to assess mission alignment. From there, we will develop an action plan to create any missing documents.
A thorough assessment of your nonprofit's financial statements will be conducted to determine the fiscal health of the agency and to uncover any level of deficit that may be present.
A full audit of your nonprofit's fundraising materials will be conducted so that tailored recommendations and action steps can be provided. Through this process we will
A review of your nonprofit's Fundraising Plan and revenue generation documents will be conducted coupled with a strategic revenue session with your team to discuss viable, sustainable fundraising options. (If your nonprofit lacks a Fundraising Plan, then we will spend time reviewing the components of a successful Revenue Generation Plan). To make the financial shift from under-resourced to sustainable, we will synthesize all of the information learned through the coaching process and create a Revenue Generation Plan that will incorporate a fundraising strategy to put your nonprofit on a solid path to sustainable income.
In order to achieve long-term success, every nonprofit must have a clear strategy for turning the two critical needs of revenue and capacity into viable and flourishing resources that support the agency. We will identify the gaps when it comes to human capacity needs and explore creative ways to bridge those gaps by building a network of ongoing support right in your geographic area.
