What makes Superstar Fundraising different?

This is a bold new vision for fundraising with ease and abundance. You are invited to join!

First, you don’t convince others to care about your organization. You connect with LIKE-MINDED people who share your heart and your passion. That means being strong in mission and message to speak to those donors and not worrying about critics. Fundraising gets hard when we try to convince people who don’t care. You will learn to let that go and flow towards those who share your passion.

Second, you are the creators of your own authentic brand. I have the methodology to bring it out of you, so what you create is true to YOUR NONPROFIT. And once you learn this, can apply it to any marketing effort like campaigns or volunteer recruitment.

Third, your whole organization learns to communicate more effectively internally. Your ability to communicate inside your organization directly impacts your ability to communicate to your audiences. It starts at home. Superstar Fundraising teaches you how to get the best out of yourself and everyone around you so you all can truly shine!
