in this program, you should be able to grow your donor
base significantly and double or even triple your

If you don’t, I’ll work with you personally until
you do. As long as you’re taking action and doing
the work, you won’t fail.
That’s a fraction of what you’d pay
to work one-on-one with me.

“My knowledge of fundraising was limited when I came to the nonprofit world, and Sandy helped me create a plan for our annual fundraising. That included a strategy to grow our major donor club.
At that time, we had 80 members who were each giving $1,000. Today, we have 139 club members. That’s an increase of 59 people over the last couple of years, and an extra $59,000 for our mission!
Sandy has been amazing to work with, and a terrific mentor and resource.”

Humane Society of Greater Dayton, Dayton, OH
“In the first 5 months of this year, I’ve raised more than I did ALL of last year!
I got my first $5,000 grant, and I’ve built my monthly giving up to 120 gifts, which funds about half of my operations each month.
The Mastermind consistently keeps me focused, and now my fundraising has started to snowball. We’re getting new opportunities like crazy—they’re just showing up for us!
I was lucky enough to find you early on 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 into real dollars coming in the door.”

“Before I joined the Mastermind, I was raising some money, but I didn’t like asking for money. Now, after participating in the weekly sessions, my confidence has definitely increased and I have a PLAN for going forward.
The group also helped me be on point for our annual fundraising dinner. I was more bold and because of the support I received from Sandy, not afraid to make the Ask. As a result, we doubled the number of people in attendance and DOUBLED our revenue from that night!
I just ran a report, and since attending the Inspired Fundraising Retreat last year, we’ve doubled our fundraising income, going from about $60,000 to over $120,000. That sure will help us help a lot of kids!”

“Last October, we were approached by a foundation that had been watching us grow and believed in our mission. They offered us $130,000 if we could match it by January. I told them to keep their checkbook out because we were gonna raise it! (And in February, I was delighted to pick up the check!!)
Thanks to the Mastermind, we had the tools, the plan, and the confidence to go after such a big goal. We’d never done anything like it and I knew it would take our organization to the next level. Needless to say, we did it!
I have no doubt that this would not have been possible had it not been for the methods we learned in the Mastermind!”

“Being in the Mastermind has helped me refine our messaging to be donor centered, which makes our donors feel more connected. I can better articulate the impact our donors are having in the lives of the people we serve. Our donors are starting to tell us they feel part of our work now.
I personally feel more confident and I’m overcoming fears, becoming more bold, mostly because I see others in the group doing amazing things and it inspires me to try, too.
And it’s working! We moved into a new building this year, got a $100,000 donation, and we’re $40,000 ahead of where we were this time last year.
This job can be lonely, and the Mastermind gives you a community of encouragement, inspiration, and support. You can always get an idea for your next project, and learn things you didn’t know you needed to know.”

“Before working with Sandy, I was really overwhelmed. There were no systems in place, no plan, and we’d always just shot from the hip.
Now, I get time every week to learn and improve my skills. The topics are highly relevant and exactly what I need to work on for my small nonprofit. The best part is the results I’m seeing!
The fundraising plan we have now is challenging, but so far I’m meeting the goals I have in place. We increased our Giving Tuesday results from $1,000 in 2015 to $9,000 in 2016. Our annual event, Curry for a Cause, grew from $8,000 last year to over $16,000 this year. We started a child sponsorship program and now have 40 children sponsored. We’re now in a position to apply for grants for the first time in our 6-year history.
It’s been less than a year since I started working with Sandy and participating in the Mastermind program, and I’m amazed at all that we’ve accomplished. It’s more than I hoped for when I signed up!”

“We calculated our magic number, just like you taught us and decided to use it for Georgia Gives Day, which we’d never done before. I didn’t really know what to expect, but we everything we learned in the Mastermind. I was so excited when we hit our goal of $5,142! It felt like people were helping teach kids on horses, not just pay our bills.
We used that number again to apply for a grant and got $12,000, all because I could explain exactly how that money would be used to help special needs children receive therapy.
Being in the Mastermind helps me focus and think. When I get overwhelmed, I shut down. The Mastermind is a constant reminder that I can do this. I love the support and motivation that I get in this group of amazing people.”
