Animal Rescue Fundraising Club

Ready to double the number of animals you save?


Your heart breaks for them.
You want to save more lives.
It may be easier than you think.
It’s time you learned how to bring in serious money.

It’s a fact: The more money you raise, the more animals you can save.

And you don’t have time to waste, trying to figure it out yourself.


Are you trying to

  • Reduce the number of homeless animals by offering more spay/neuter?
  • Find loving, forever homes for the animals in your care?
  • Move your community to “No Kill” status?

The truth is that you can’t do ANY of those things without a fully-funded budget.

You can’t make the big changes you deeply want to make when you’re scraping coins together to pay the vet bill.

That’s why I created ARF Club.


ARF Club teaches you how to fully fund your big dream without begging and without working 24/7.  It’s about showing you how to create sustainable, repeatable funding for your programs so you can stop worrying about money.

ARF Club makes it easy for you to fundraise like a Pro. Over the course of a year, I’ll teach you the exact steps you need to follow to bring more money in the door. You’ll never again have to wonder what you should be doing next or how to raise money for a big project like a new van.

so you can save more lives

Just Imagine:

Shelter dog is cute dog in an animal shelter poking his nose through the fence wondering who is going to take him home.

  • Surrounding yourself with a rush of new of loyal donors who are happy to support your work again and again.
  • Having the right words to grab people by the heartstrings and open their wallet.
  • Knowing when to ask for a donation so that donors are ready and delighted to give.


sandyanddogsSandy is a huge animal lover and is passionate about helping animal rescue nonprofit leaders raise the money of their dreams.

Since 1998, she has helped dozens of nonprofits raise millions to fund their programs. She’s a Master Trainer and knows how to deliver trainings that are not only educational, but fun too!

She’s known for her practical, easy-going style and her ability to make things simple and doable.

For years, Sandy taught small nonprofits and spoke at lots of events, including the Best Friends conference. While that was great, she hated watching people walk away, knowing they would struggle to figure out how to implement what they just learned. She wanted to give them more support and guidance. She also knew there was SO much more she could show them.

So she created ARF Club. It’s a 12-month program designed to cover the exact topics that every small nonprofit must master to fully fund their mission.



Every month, we’ll tackle a specific fundraising topic that you need to master. I’ll give you only what you need to know and walk you through the steps to put your new knowledge into action. Plus, you’ll get worksheets, checklists, and templates to make everything faster and easier.

January – A plan for building a big, donor base of loyal, generous supporters who rally behind your cause (plus a New Donor Welcome Kit)

February – A simple technique for getting all the grant money you need to expand programs, hire staff, and more (plus a list of the Top 5 Grants you should be applying for)

March – The key pieces of your story to share to open their hearts (and wallets)

April – A strategy for building long-term donor relationships without begging or feeling manipulative

May – A simple plan for creating a newsletter that donors will open, read, share and donate to

June – An easy-to-follow social media plan to grow your supporters and your movement (plus a Facebook Posting Schedule)

July – A template for a sizzling appeal that raises more than you’ve ever raised through the mail

August – A strategy to get your Board on board for fundraising so they will actually help you raise money

September – A map for getting the more ROI from year-end fundraising than ever before

October – An outline for a special event that creates record-breaking results

November – A strategy for thanking donors to make them feel like a million bucks so they give, give, and give again (plus 6 sample thank you letters)

December – A template for a complete fundraising plan so you can start on a new year of success NOW!

Here are things many people have asked me about the program.

Q: Is there a set time that I need to show up for the trainings?
A: Yes! All trainings are the first Tuesday of every month at 3 PM Eastern. The Webinar is also recorded, which means you can download and watch the videos whenever it works for you. The ARF Club Unplugged calls are scheduled the 3rd Tuesday every month at 3 PM Eastern, so you’ll want to be sure and get those on your calendar.

Q: Can others from my organization participate? I’ve got a couple of volunteers who help me with fundraising and I’d love question-mark-bluefor them to get the training, too.
A: Yes! Membership in ARF Club is for the whole organization. In fact, we encourage you to pull in your key fundraising team members so that you can all be on the same page. Once you sign up, we’ll give you the details for bringing your other staff or volunteers in.

Q: My organization is a home-based rescue and we don’t have a facility. Will this work for us?
A: Absolutely! This training is created specifically for small organizations, and I’ll give you suggestions for things you can do whether you have a facility or not.

Q: What if I have a question? How can I talk to you about my specific situation?
A: You’ve got two ways to get help from me: 1. You’re welcome to ask a question ANY TIME in the private Facebook group or 2. We have a monthly ARF Club Unplugged calls where you can ask anything. Chances are really good that someone else in the group has the same problem as you, so when you ask, you’re helping others, too.

Q: How fast will I see results?
A: I believe that you get out of a program what you put into it. The more you work the training materials, the faster you’ll see results. We have some specific Club members who have told me “Sandy, you’ve already saved me so much time” and “I’ve easily made my investment back” in their first 60 days.



Jeremy & Tracy Event pic (2) “Using the Get Fully Funded materials has helped our organization focus on building relationships and not the monetary transaction. Building relationships has been the key to fully funding our success and keeping the guinea pigs in our care healthy, happy and on their way to new forever homes. Using Sandy’s methods we raised more money in 2015 than we did in the previous 5 years! She explains things clearly and she genuinely cares about our success.”

“I started my nonprofit with some experience in fundraising, but not much. So I love the guidance I’m getting! I love the camaraderie and insight I get from other Club members. I am obsessed with the step-by-step instructions on how to do things. The biggest thing I’ve gotten so far is how to thank my donors well (early and often!). Another HUGE help was the fundraising plan, which we now have set up. My membership has already paid for itself!!”

colleen combs “We set a goal to raise $15,000 in December so we could buy a transport van for our 2 year-old nonprofit. Everyone around us said “Good luck with that.” We followed Sandy’s advice on thanking donors and I made a point of hand writing a thank you card to every donor the day we received the donation. It didn’t take long before we had some profound results. Nearly HALF of those who donated made a second donation within a week of receiving their card. I am THRILLED that we raised over $30,000 – more than double our goal! What we raised in December was more than we’ve ever raised in a single month. Thank you Sandy! It was your suggestion that prompted me to take this approach. Yahoo! We’re getting a new van!”

becky “I was lucky enough to find you in my first year of operation with my nonprofit. I’m learning to do things right the first time instead of wasting time and energy on mistakes. I’ve gotten so many ideas that I’ve been able to use and translate to real dollars coming in the door. I’m looking forward to improving my board and am actually excited about grant writing. I rely on ARF Club more than anyone else to support my organization. Reality. Thank you!”

amy “The biggest thing I’ve gotten from ARF club is a consistent coach to help me improve our fundraising. Having something to learn every month has helped motivate me, and I now have a better donor thank you system in place, a fundraising strategy (which I’m really excited about), and Board members who are interested in fundraising.”
