Individual Coaching - In person, by phone or Skype (or a mix)
Skill building through individual coaching is the most effective way to ensure fundraising improvement.
- One-on-one coaching is an extremely flexible format and scheduled on an as-needed basis
- Steady guidance and support will be provided every step of the way, sharing best practices based on research and my personal experiences
- Examples of exemplary fundraising documents and materials will be shared
In our training sessions, we bounce ideas around, ask questions, strategize next steps and troubleshoot, while you get meaningful feedback and expert fundraising advice. I will provide you with encouragement as you experiment and implement what you have learned, and bring you exceptional ROI.
Each time we talk, we will review your progress and discuss the next steps to get you to your goal. At the end of each session, you’ll agree on the tasks to complete before our next session. I will keep you energized and inspired, and provide you with the guidance you need to do your work with excellence.
The coaching is tailored to fit your individual needs, so the length of our involvement is entirely up to you. I will work with you for as long as you see benefit from working with me.
Custom-Designed Workshops for Nonprofit Boards
When I talk to board members about fundraising, I often hear "Oh, I could never do that. I hate asking people for money." Well, if that's what it was about, I would hate it too! Who wants to do that? Fortunately, that's not what we do. We don't ask people for money. We help people connect to a mission that moves them. We show people how to use their resources to make the world a better place.
How do you actually do that? During these workshops, you will gain a new perspective, learn new skills, build confidence, and understand the many ways you can support fundraising without having to solicit. You will be engaged as a team, sharing in the process – and the success!
