Ready for more predictable nonprofit fundraising?


All it takes is passion, a little know-how, and some good old-fashioned elbow grease. (Read on to learn what I mean.)


My friend, 

If you’re like most nonprofit folks I know, you’re constantly searching for new ideas for ways to raise money for your organization. 

You’re doing the best you can, cobbling together the pieces you know with the parts you can guess at, knowing all the while that there has to be someone out there who knows what you REALLY should be doing to simplify everything and make it work.

You’re really tired of watching the “big” nonprofits in town have smashing success after success, and wondering what their secret is.

What you really want is a secret recipe that you can follow, that will give you consistent, outstanding nonprofit fundraising results.


Well, today’s your lucky day!

Let me introduce you to the Get Fully Funded system for fundraising.

Get Fully Funded is a step-by-step system that you can follow to create the fundraising program of your dreams. It follows industry best practices, current trends, and tried-and-true, field-tested methods. It covers everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) you need to be successful raising money in the small shop.

Curious what’s in it? Let me give you a sneak peek at the Table of Contents.

When you use the Get Fully Funded system, you’ll find

  • Your learning curve just got shortened
  • Your stress level just got lowered
  • Fundraising can actually be fun!

Think of it as the blueprint you’ve been looking for to build the fundraising program of your dreams.


Why should you listen to me?

For one thing, I’ve been there. In the early part of my fundraising career, I was in a similar spot to yours.  I knew that my organization needed to grow (and do it fast!) if we were going to serve more people.  So I set out to increase the amount of money we were bringing in.  I didn’t have a clue what I was doing most of the time - I made it up as I went.  Yet somehow I was successful.  Within just a few years, I tripled the fundraising revenue, and we grew the organizational budget from $500,000 to $1.5 million.  And it was awesome!!

Looking back, I realize that my life would have been much easier if there had been a book or a workbook that I could have gone through that would have given me everything I needed.  At the time, there wasn’t.  I got a little bit from this book, then a little bit from that seminar, then tried to piece it all together.  It was frustrating and hard.

When I became a coach, I vowed that I would not let my clients learn things the hard way like I did.  I also wanted to be sure that my clients and students were reaching for the biggest goals they could. So, I created the Get Fully Funded system and designed it to accomplish both goals. For the past several years, I’ve been teaching this to my clients and marveling in the results they’ve created.

I’ve boiled it down to 7 simple steps that you can easy implement.


The 7 steps of the Get Fully Funded system:

  •  Step 1: Make fundraising a priority. You must get infrastructure in place in your office, and put the systems together that will support you when you are fundraising.  Otherwise, your fundraising program will collapse as soon as it starts.  You also must get your mind focused on what’s possible and let go any beliefs that zap your energy.
  •  Step 2: Understand why people give. Before you try to raise money, it’s helpful to uncover a donor’s motivations for giving. You must understand all the reasons why someone might make a gift to your organization so that you can appeal to them specifically.
  • Step 3: Identify the best donor prospect. You can save a lot of time and resources by focusing your efforts on the right people.  When you get clear about your ideal donor and how to find more just like them, attracting donors becomes easy.
  •  Step 4: Tell your story. When it’s time to talk to donors and prospects, it’s best to have a clear, focused message to share.  You need carefully-selected key messages and a compelling, hooky elevator speech.  You also need to be able to share a heart-warming story about a person or a family your nonprofit has helped.
  •  Step 5: Plan how and when will you ask for a gift. This is the nitty-gritty!  You need a written, comprehensive fundraising plan for your nonprofit, complete with all the strategies and techniques that will be most effective for the target audiences you are after.
  • Step 6: Acknowledge the gift and build relationships. Thanking and stewarding a donor is not only polite, but it builds relationship and trust with the donor.  It starts with a great Thank-You letter and ends with a grateful donor who becomes an ambassador for you in the community.
  • Step 7: Evaluate success. Measuring your success will help you know which fundraising activities to continue and which ones to dump.  Consistent evaluation will help you not only stay on target and focused, but keep you moving forward.

In the Get Fully Funded system, you’ll learn how to put good fundraising systems into place, and you’ll also learn to stop worrying about things like:

“What if people get tired of hearing from us?”
“I might not say the right thing (either in person or in writing).”
“I don’t know how to build relationships with people I don’t know.”
“I don’t know how much to ask for.”
“My Board wants us to do an event like another nonprofit they know, but I think it will be a waste of time.”
“How can I get more done during the day? All I seem to get done during the day is put out fire after fire.”
“We don’t know any rich people who can give big bucks.”
“I can’t get my Board to help with fundraising.”
“I’m not sure what a major donor is or who mine are.”

 How about a few words from people who have used the system?


Daniel Watson

“When Sandy came to help our organization she really walked with us and got to know who we are and what we do.  That personal touch is what separates Sandy from the other consultants I’ve known.  She is a wonderful communicator and has unending ideas.

The Restoration House is a very young organization and it was even younger when Sandy started helping us.  Our annual budget when we met Sandy was around $80,000, but we had plans to expand and knew the need was there.  In just one year, Sandy helped us develop a sustainable fundraising strategy that not only helped us grow our annual budget to $120,000, but left us money in the bank.  Using this system she coached us on we closed our books that year with $50,000 in the bank which meant almost have of the next year’s budget was already raised.  At our breakfast the following year we raised $62,000 in new donations in just one hour.  For a small organization that is only 2 and a half years old, we can say that we are raising more money every year and always have a hefty balance in the checking account.  Now that’s sustainability!  Thanks Sandy!!!”

*What you need to know about Restoration House is that this past year, they held that event for the third time and raised $145,000 in gifts and pledges!  How cool is that?? I’m SO proud of them!

“I recently purchased Sandy’s “Get Fully Funded” and started participating in the coaching calls. The materials Sandy provides aren’t just theory or great ideas; they are practical, useful, tools that help now!

Kimberly Humphries, CFRE, Development Director

Sandy, your Get Fully Funded system is terrific! It’s as good as anything I’ve seen . . . and that’s after 49 years as a senior development officer and consultant with over 300 clients . . . over 400 campaigns and $400,000,000 raised. Congratulations on creating something so powerful!”

“Before I got Sandy’s system, I had many ideas, but had trouble putting them together. I was often times overbooked, over-scheduled and over-committed, which made it difficult for me to reach my goals. After using Get Fully Funded, I’m now organized and can easily keep track of my activities and my progress. I feel more in control – the fundraising is no longer running me – and I am implementing strategies for success. The Get Fully Funded system tells you clearly what to do and helps you identify key components for meeting your goals.

Vel Hux, Director of Development
Warren County Community Services, Lebanon, OH

The absolute best thing about attending the Get Fully Funded LIVE! event was the very wonderfully detailed Get Fully Funded book that is now my “How To” manual. I love that it’s a complete system!”

Pam Potocik, Executive Director
LVTEC, Loudon, TN

“I’m halfway through my fiscal year and just finished the evaluation of my results so far. I have to say I’m very pleased and I owe it all to you and your Get Fully Funded system! I was shooting for a 70% renewal rate of my current donors, and so far I’m at 68%!! I’ve raised $42,334 this year – last year I raised just $12,000. I only have $19,000 to go and my total budget is raised for 2012 (and I still have 6 months to go!!). I fully recommend the Get Fully Funded System to anyone working in the fund development field. This is an easy workable system that is guaranteed to bring great results for any organization.

“I have been involved in Christian nonprofits for over 30 years. Most of that time I lived overseas and did not see a need to do “fundraising” for the organization. For the past fifteen years I have been President of International Christian Ministries (ICM). For most of that time we received funds from partner ministries that enabled us to push on with our vision of training and equipping. But the last three years have been a challenge. Funding from partners have all but dried up. While I have read a lot about different aspects of raising funds, I did not have any one to guide me. Until I met Sandy Rees. Her energy, commitment and experience has helped ICM get on track with raising funds through raising ministry partners. Her book Get Fully Funded has now become our primary go-to-source for outlining and implementing a funding strategy. I highly recommend her and her materials as a way to develop your own strategy and “get fully funded.”

What results can you expect?

If you are committed to the success of your nonprofit organization and you’re willing to do the work I outline in this book, I think you will begin to see results fairly quickly. Typically, it can take up to a year (or more) to get a complete fundraising program in place, but I’m going to help you shortcut that process by getting you laser-focused on the exact tasks that will give you the most return on your investment.  In other words, I believe this system will help you raise more money and do it faster than you could do on your own. You should recover your investment in this system within a few weeks, and maybe even with 1 new donor!

The nonprofit clients I work with privately see results within the first few months. Here’s what they do to be successful:

  • They take ACTION and implement the steps of the system.
  • They get really good at telling their story to lots of people.
  • They create a written plan for fundraising.
  • They get out there and spread the word about their cause.
  • They learn how to say “no” to things that don’t help them raise money.
  • They work smarter, not harder.
  • They create systems to make their work easier.
  • They develop deep and lasting relationships with key supporters and donors.
  • They create diverse revenue streams from a variety of fundraising strategies.
  • They thank every donor, every time, and do a fantastic job of it.
  • They track where their fundraising dollars are being spent and where the most money is being raised.
  • They regularly review their fundraising plan and make adjustments as needed.


How can you be sure this system will work for you?

The Get Fully Funded system is not for everyone. It’s meant for nonprofit fundraising professionals who are:

  • Tired of lackluster results and ready to raise big money
  • Willing to let go of “we’ve always done it this way” and try something different
  • Willing to take action and implement
  • Willing to improve on what they’ve already done

This system is not for:

  • Chronic whiners and complainers
  • Those looking for a quick fix
  • Those resistant to change
  • Those waiting on their Board to swoop in and save the day
  • Those just starting out with absolutely no money to invest in fundraising


Still undecided?
