Founding to Funding
It’s not just your job,
it’s your calling.
And now you need to fund it.
You’ve got a big vision
to change lives.

It’s time you learned how
to bring in serious money.

You won’t raise big bucks until you know how


You never went to fundraising school, so you’re not sure how this works and you don’t want to waste time with trial and error.

You’ve seen other nonprofits raising lots of money, and you know there has to be a formula.

You’re not thrilled at the thought of asking someone for money, but you’re willing to do whatever it takes, because you’re ready to make a change in the world.

What you’d love is for someone to shortcut your learning curve and give you the inside scoop about what it really takes to raise big bucks year after year.


Learn a simple formula to create waves of funding
(even if you’ve never done fundraising before)

4-Part Webinar Series
— $127.00 —



Just Imagine:
  • Surrounding yourself with loyal donors who are happy to support your work.
  • Learn how to grab people by the heartstrings by using the right words
  • Knowing how to ask for a donation at just the right time so you get the most money possible.


I’m Sandy Rees, nonprofit fundraising coach. And I wasn’t born knowing how to raise money.

My fundraising education came from a lot of trial and error. I tried what I saw other nonprofits doing. But without understanding the strategy behind their activities, I made a lot of mistakes. It was messy. And it took a long time for me to get it right.

Once I got it, I raised a ton of money for my organization. Then I went on to do it again and again for employers and then clients.

I want to shorten your learning curve so you don’t have to go through what I did.

Join me for this training and learn to solidify your knowledge of fundraising, filling in the gaps, so you know how to raise the funding bar as your nonprofit grows.

In this highly interactive virtual webinar series, I’ll walk you through a series of exercises to show you how to create sustainable revenue with donor based fundraising.

“I’ve never been so engaged for so long in a seminar! You truly have a gift. I’m so confident now with what I learned from you and I’m ready to create a big, bold vision for my new nonprofit. My plan is to be one of your success stories!”

Natalie Erb, Founder, Milly’s Wings
“I wanted to share with you how much I enjoyed this webinar series, and how much I appreciated you using Prescott College as an example during the 2nd session. While we are a non-profit, we aren’t like a food bank or rescue organization, so our “sell” is sometimes trickier to people who are not already connected to the school in some way. But as you said, we won’t apologize for what we do because we’re very proud of our students and who we are as an institution! I also feel that I came away with some great ideas for how to improve our current fundraising tactics, and how to (hopefully) boost our donor pool. Thank you again! It was a real pleasure.”

Deseree Zurcher, Advancement Assistant, Prescott College, Prescott, AZ
