We’re raising more funds than the organization has ever seen before.

In fact, after recently submitting 6 grant proposals and receiving funding for 4 of them, we were thrilled. I’m so grateful to have found Cathy Mann and The Fundraising Lab.

I came from a large non-profit, so it was quite an adjustment to work in a small shop. 

I knew Cathy and The Fundraising Lab, so I reached out about executive coaching. It was everything I was looking for.

The Fundraising Lab's Spark

As the lone fundraiser at my non-profit, this group has been extremely beneficial to me.

It answers questions, sparks discussion, and provides support.

A wealth of information for small-shop nonprofits! I love the community aspect. 

Great to have that peer support and another fundraiser to bounce ideas off. Especially important as I'm the one and only FR at my organization.

Spark has been SO important in supporting my confidence.

It reminds me to focus on what's important to donors, and to examine my own money mindset and acknowledge that everyone has their own money mindset.

ONLINE COURSE

Planning with Purpose

testimonial-avata-02

This program is amazing and I am getting more confident each week.

Thank you so much for this. I always felt that what held me back from progressing forward to a Director Role was my insecurity with creating multi-year and annual plans.

I learned a lot from this course and look forward to putting my fundraising plan into action.

The biggest take away for me was getting a Donor Management System in place. I presented my fundraising plan to the board on Wednesday and they loved it.

So thankful today for Cathy, the Fundraising Lab and its resources and expertise! 

The Fundraising Plan is helping me stay focused this year. I have mailed or emailed 17 letters to Family Foundations.

Thank you for building a course that directly addressed my needs.

I don't think I could have done what I did with the fundraising planning and inventory and budget without this course! Thank you for helping to make me look good by sharing your resources and expertise.

Really grateful for the 8-week program and the templates to help get started.

Rather than needing to spend a year or more in a formal program, I could hit the ground running.
