fundraising volunteersYou know and I know that there’s no budget to hire more people to help you out.

You and I know that you’ve needed more help for a long time.

Someone to come and help you design that brochure. Or someone to stuff envelopes.

Someone to go get those auction items. Someone to go research grants for you. Someone to call back that donor.  Someone to print out the thank-you notes. Someone to make sure the goodie bags are on the event tables.

You know. Someone to pick up the slack.

How can you find that person (or people?)

How can you get the help you need, even without the budget or putting more hours in the day?

I have two words for you.

Fundraising Volunteers.

  • Do you want more fundraising volunteers?
  • Do you want help with all of the little things you’d rather have someone else do?
  • Do you want people for your phone-a-thon? Or people to help you raise more money?

You will love Your Ultimate Guide to Fundraising with Volunteers.

In this four-week e-course, you will get instructions, resource lists, worksheets, checklists, surveys, quizzes and more to help you get the fundraising help that you need to succeed.
