Do you want more donors? More sponsors? More money for your nonprofit?

My model is created specifically for small and mid-size organizations. This fully individualized 6 month coaching package is the powerful space you’ve been looking for –expect potent questions, bursts of insight, laughter, exercises that engage all of you and sharp and insightful synthesis that leaves you clear and poised for action.

My coaching model is straightforward. Two one hour calls a month to help you reach your fundraising goals.  Up to two hours of emails for 4 hours total.


Coaching? Why?

Because you want results. Our calls will be 100% percent focused on for your organization, on the roadblocks you’re facing and the goals you want to realize.


As part of my initial assessment, I will work with you to figure out what fundraising topics and strategies you need to focus on or want to work on this coming year.  On our calls, you can bounce ideas around, ask questions, get concise and meaningful feedback, and get expert fundraising advice from me. No hype. These calls are results oriented.


You and I could work on:

  • Staff and board development workshops and trainings
  • Custom fundraising webinars for your staff
  • Appeal letter editing and strategies
  • Custom stewardship systems to help you keep your donors
  • Surveys to help you know your donor
  • Helping you create systems to help other people fundraise for you
  • Analysis of your current social media and website, to help you get more donations online


This program produces results, like:

  • Brainstorm new sources of income for your nonprofit, like I did for the Global Autism Project (They made $60K in 6 months with a new income stream!)
  • Get a $20,000 sponsorship, the largest in your nonprofit’s history, for the first time from a brand new sponsor (results from an east coast children’s nonprofit)
  • Triple your income like HOPE Inc did (over $100K raised in 2013)
  • Send out the best appeal letters your organization has ever done, like I did for one Meals on Wheels affiliate. They raised $35,000 with the letter I helped write in December 2013!
  • Start your first real fundraising and communications plan, and follow through with it, like HOPE Inc
  • See your donations increase 100% with your appeal letters, like the Austin Civic Orchestra did
  • Create donor acknowledgement systems that help you keep your donors, like I did with the Global Autism Project
  • Triple your grant money, like I did for The Urban League of Portland
  • Start a monthly giving program and get 10 new monthly donors, like HOPE Inc
  • Motivate and train board members to help you fundraise, like I did for the Austin Civic Orchestra
  • Put your volunteers to work as your volunteer fundraising army, like I did for Clackamas Women’s Services
  • Help you get big event sponsors, like a Catholic school in New York did, getting $15K, $1,500, and more, using the same techniques I’ve taught to hundreds of nonprofits
  • Create systems to teach others how to fundraise for you


Who have I worked with? Could I understand where you’re coming from?

Are you the founder of your nonprofit? I feel your pain. I’ve co-founded a nonprofit, too. I know how difficult it can be to get a new nonprofit off the ground. And I can help you create systems to get everything done right the first time.

Are you the executive director? I love working with executive directors! I love how entrepreneurial and autonomous executive directors can be. And I love how quickly we can get things done together.

Are you leading an all-volunteer nonprofit? I’ve been there, too. I can help you navigate getting board members to work, teach your board to fundraise, so that you can build the capacity to get paid staff. I can help you choose a database, and develop a better relationship with your donors.

I’ve worked in one-to-three person shops at small nonprofits. I’ve done everything from get $250,000 in sponsorships to $35,000 in appeal returns to $120,000 in grants (over the course of a year, doubling and sometimes tripling previous results) for such diverse causes as; domestic violence, social justice, animal welfare, education, healthcare, arts in healthcare, senior services, classical music, and more.

I’ve also worked internationally. I know some of the pain of NGOs and raising money for overseas projects. I can help you make your cause more relevant to people who may never see the project.

So, is it worth it? YES!

Since starting Wild Woman Fundraising in winter 2009, I’ve studied fundraising obsessively. And this shows in my three five-star rated books, 1000+ blog posts, 10 e-courses, hundreds of workshops and webinars, and more. I also have over seven years experience actually working in the trenches-from being an intern at Planned Parenthood to co-founding a nonprofit. And I’ve organized mastermind groups with fundraisers much more experienced than me, and learned a lot from them too!


For the last ten years, I’ve connected with thousands of you on twitter, and around 60,000 of you read my blog every month.

You are my friends and colleagues, and I’ve been so happy to help over 16,000 organizations succeed through webinars, trainings, and consulting work.

I’ve also spoken at nonprofit leadership conferences, where I’ve been lucky to meet and make friends with so many of you.

I would love to take everything I’ve learned and help you succeed.


Your return? Together, we’ll inject new life into your fundraising office. I won’t make grand promises, but together we can boost your fundraising. If you build your relationships and work hard on your fundraising, the sky’s the limit.

I am only accepting two applications for my coaching program for 2019.

Let’s kick it off and make 2019 rock even harder for your nonprofit!
