ANnual report 2016

Hi! It’s the end of the year! FINALLY!

Goodbye 2016! Hello 2017!

What a bumpy road! What a surprise this year was. Here are my mistakes for 2016.

I’m hoping next year gets better for all of us.

Maybe you know that I like to teach people about annual reports, but did you know I also like to make my OWN annual report, every year, and share it with you?

I do!

In my Wild Woman Fundraising Annual Report, I share travel photos, a financial snapshot of the business, and what I learned this year.

I also use it to say thank you to everyone who has read my blog, signed up for my enewsletter, everyone who has bought a product, and everyone who has attended a free or paid event that I have done.

My mission is fundraising empowerment. You help me achieve my mission.

With your help, I am able to teach thousands of fundraisers, all over the world, every year. This strengthens our sector, and gives us more money for our missions!

I couldn’t do this work without you. I am so grateful to you for reading this right now.

Why do I make this?

Because I love being transparent with you. It helps me feel like we’re all in this journey together.

One thing that I did differently this year is that I shared a MAJOR realization I had-it’s on the second to last page of the annual report. What do you think of it?

    Great, refreshing way of reading corporate annual reports. I like how self-disclosing you are while maintaining a business/professional style. Your growth charts are very telling that the future is only going to be even more productive and “impact-full.” The tone of all your communications and this report make your business seem more like a grassroots organization rather than a corporation (which is good), inspiring people to get passionate about why fund raising is so vital to doing the mission.
