Words to attract and connect with donors
On time + on budget
You're a busy nonprofit professional, so I'll get right to the point:
You need to raise (undesignated) funds.
Lots of it. Last Tuesday.
After 20 years of working in the charitable sector, I know what it's like to wear multiple hats, have multiple bosses, and multiple funding deadlines you only found out about yesterday.
If only someone would swoop in and lighten the load.
Well, my friend, take a breath.
I'm here to do that.
I’m here to give voice to your cause with words that open your donors’ hearts (and wallets).
I've taken dozens of courses and training from the fundraising masters (Ahern, Joyeaux, Perry, etc).
I've learned how to use stories, psychological cues and emotional triggers to compel donors to give generously. I've written countless fundraising letters, cases for support and grant applications that generated millions of dollars for charity.
Here’s why I’m your secret fundraising weapon:
I've been on the other side of the granting table.
I’ve worked for and sat on several grantmaking committees. I know the dos and don’ts that create a strong ask.
I believe so strongly that our society is made better through our charities and nonprofit agencies. I'm happy to provide these services at nonprofit rates as long as you have a charitable number.
Here's my Nonprofit Service Menu.
