Build the Best Team for
Fundraising Success

Our training and support will strengthen
your fundraising team

If you are looking for a professional to give a presentation on a particular fundraising topic or to coach your staff, we are ready to assist you. We can help you build a confident and capable development team.

Fundraising Training

You may be a development officer with many years of experience, but need to know how to prepare for a capital or comprehensive campaign. Or you may be relatively new to the role of fundraising and want to learn about major gift solicitation. Or perhaps you are an Executive Director who is responsible for fundraising and needs some help to engage volunteers to assist you in this work.

We have trained nonprofit Executives, development staff, Board members, campaign teams and development committee members. We can provide fundraising training tailored to your needs.

We have provided training on fundraising topics such as:
  • Key steps to establishing a strong development program
  • Donor engagement and stewardship
  • Preparing for a capital campaign
  • Major gift solicitation
  • How Board members can help with fundraising
  • Building a strong fundraising event
  • Creating an annual fundraising plan… and more!

Many nonprofit organizations rely on the good work of volunteers to assist in carrying out their mission. This includes volunteer involvement in fundraising.

Volunteers can have a dramatic positive impact on fundraising success. In order to be most effective in fundraising, you want your volunteers to be well-prepared and comfortable with their role. We can train your volunteers to be confident fundraisers.

Enthusiastic and skilled volunteers are critical to the success of a capital campaign. Perhaps nothing is more important to the success of your campaign than recruiting the right volunteer leadership. We can guide you in selecting the best volunteers for your campaign and provide expert training that will prepare them for the challenges and the joys of major gift fundraising.

Fundraising Coaching

Whether you are an experienced professional or new to the world of fundraising, you may benefit from one-on-one coaching. We can help you work through a particular challenge or provide ongoing guidance to increase your effectiveness on the job. Fundraising education and conferences can be great for professional development, but coaching is customized just for you.

With decades of experience in annual fundraising, planning, events, corporate sponsorship, grant writing and major gift campaigns, we can provide the direction and support you need to be more successful and confident in your work. An initial conversation is free of charge. We can design a coaching program to fit your budget and timeline. Contact us to see if coaching may be right for you.
