Planning doesn’t have to be hard.
It doesn’t have to be complicated or time-consuming either.

Without a plan, you work in reactive mode instead of proactive mode.

Truth: No one ever raised big bucks without a plan.

It’s time you stopped:

  • fighting fires and dealing with the crisis du jour.
  • taking work home every night and every weekend.
  • doing everything at the last minute, just barely making deadlines.

Just Imagine:
  • Knowing exactly how you’ll raise the money your nonprofit needs to operate for the year
  • Having specific, concrete strategies and goals for fundraising
  • Knowing what to work on every month, every week, and every day
  • Having confidence that your plan will WORK!

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.

In the Fundraising Blueprint Workshop, I’ll teach you all the secrets to planning that I learned the hard way so you can be clearer, move faster, and win sooner.

Sound good?

In this highly interactive virtual workshop, I’ll walk you through a series of exercises to show you how to create a customized fundraising plan that fits your nonprofit (no cookie-cutter approach here). You can literally fill in the blanks as we go and end the day with a plan.

  • The real reasons why most people don’t plan (these may surprise you), which one is holding you back, and how to work around it
  • How to evaluate what you’ve done in the past and decide what to keep, what to tweak, and what to dump
  • The 3 main goals EVERY professional fundraiser needs to set and work towards to fully fund their nonprofit
  • The 2 main types of fundraising and which one you need to focus on to create sustainability
  • How to identify your strengths both personally and organizationally, and play to them in your plan
  • My 1-10-1000 Rule for choosing fundraising strategies
  • Fundraising Math: How to double-check the numbers to be confident in the strategies you’ve chosen
  • Tips for getting help with your plan and staying on track

“I am so inspired, I just had to write and let you know what I got out of this workshop! The unique ability exercise got me focused on what I do best. I’ve already called an area foundation and they invited me to submit a grant for their next deadline. I’ve looked into my numbers and I now have a 50% donor renewal rate which I’m very excited about.”
