If you're a fundraiser, an advancement leader, an executive director, a volunteer or donor, we heart you and your determination to leave this world better than you found it.
We know that humans are insanely generous.
Americans give away more than one billion dollars a day. One BILLION dollars! So...
Money can make change.
You're here, so you need to raise money, but you might feel like:
asking for money is creepy, dirty, scary, rude, awkward, embarrassing, hard (or all of the above)
you don't know where to start
you don't know how to ask
you keep having the same conversation over and over
you don't have enough donors
your board should be raising more money
You're not alone.
We've raised over $70 million for causes we love - as fundraisers and volunteers.
Nancy founded and led a thriving nonprofit - the Climate & Energy Project. After 10 years in scholarly publishing, Nancy raised more than $40 million at KU Endowment.
Jenna started her fundraising career at the University of Central Missouri after selling a successful coffee shop she bought in college. She spent 10 years raising tens of millions for the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences at KU Endowment.
We've been to countless fundraising conferences and trainings, but we never left with specific tools we could actually use immediately to start raising more money.
So, we're designing, creating and hosting in-person workshops, online courses, videos, worksheets, checklists and scripts so you will:
get in the door with the right donors
know who to call first...and next
say and show how what you do matters
get your board involved in fundraising
feel confident with donors
create strong, sustainable connections with donors
raise more money
make more change
