But don’t take my word for it. Check out what some former students have to say:

Learning from Cathy's wealth of knowledge was worth every dollar!

The Developing Your Strategic Fundraising Plan course was the best professional development course I have ever taken. The program outline was detailed and easy to follow and the web Q&A's added an extra level of comfort and clarity when completing the course work. You won't be disappointed!

Working with Cathy has helped give me clear vision as to where we want to go and how to get there.

I enjoyed the course from the get go. Cathy is very supportive and shares her knowledge and experiences in the industry with enthusiasm. The modules and videos were clear and thorough. And Cathy’s sense of humour was a bonus! I would highly recommend this course to anyone. You will walk away with the tools to make magic happen for your organization. It’s all about the fairy dust!

I now have a plan that I’m eager to work from.

Meeting with Cathy about the development of the fundraising plan was part fundraising lesson, part therapy session. So much of fundraising is about how to engage people. And frankly, I needed help to overcome my own fears or challenges that stemmed from being new in the role. Having someone with Cathy’s calm and reassuring words helped me confirm that I was heading in the right direction. And I loved hearing Cathy tell stories about her experiences – both good and bad.
