Imagine your dedicated board and staff confidently using new skills to fundraise and build relationships with donors.
As a leadership and professional development coach, I partner with Boards, Executive Directors, Development Directors, and other nonprofit staff to develop clear goals and design action plans to achieve them. My specialty is in building and improving relationship-based fundraising programs for small and mid-sized nonprofits.
I have 25 years of leadership experience as a successful fundraiser, manager, facilitator and trainer. I bring direct experience in all areas of fundraising and marketing including annual funds, volunteer management, grant writing, community organizing, capital campaigns, and major gift solicitation and stewardship.
I work collaboratively with my clients to create development programs that reflect the values and culture of your particular organization, while incorporating research and best practices. Fundraising can be challenging. What should you say? How should you say it? As your coach, I can be your thought partner to support you in planning how to write appeal letters, craft a development plan, approach specific donors and more.
