Your nonprofit is up and running.


Now, you need the funding to support your big dream.

There’s a LOT to do when you’re running a new nonprofit – programs to figure out, volunteers to recruit, and yes, money to raise. You’re likely working long hours juggling lots of stuff, trying to make it all work. If you’re not careful, you’ll end up tired and frustrated, with little money to show for it.

It’s pretty common, and here’s why: you want to make a difference, but don’t know how to fund your good work.

What you need is a proven formula for fundraising. You need to create a group of loyal supporters around you who believe in your mission and are willing to write big checks to fund your work. You need donor-based fundraising and you need it now!You need the words that will warm donors’ hearts and open their wallets.And you need someone to show you exactly what you need to do to get your fundraising efforts up and running quick, because there’s no time to waste. You can’t afford a long learning curve. You don’t have time to figure it out yourself.

That’s what the Fundraising QuickStart is all about.

Fundraising QuickStart is a four-part webinar series designed to help you learn how to master donor-based fundraising so you can fully fund your organization from the get-go. No wasting time on things that don’t work. No low-return fundraising. Just solid strategies that work.


Fundraising QuickStart is specifically for:

  • Founders of new nonprofits

  • Directors of nonprofits just getting started with fundraising

  • Anyone doing “nickel and dime” fundraising and wanting bigger results!


Here’s what’s included in the webinars:


  • Webinar #1: Solid Foundation (60 minutes)

    In this webinar, you’ll learn all the things you need to have in place before you ask anyone for money. It takes systems, software, and support to raise the big bucks, and I’ll show you which ones you need and how to begin putting them in place. We’ll also cover some basic but critical topics that you must master including organization, time management, and prioritization. This session usually leaves people feeling much more confident and ready to take on the world!

    • Worksheets on Solid Foundation: Fundraising goals worksheet, Non-profit help worksheet, Daily priorities worksheet, Time Management worksheet, and more.


  • Webinar #2: Heart-warming Communications (60 minutes)

    Before someone will give, they need to be inspired. In this webinar, we’ll cover the communication strategies you need to use to tell your story so that people want to give (this is KEY to successful fundraising!). We’ll cover the critical pieces you need to be ready to share, including key messages, a whiplash statistic, and stories you can tell, even if your programs haven’t started yet. We’ll also talk about how to spread the word so you don’t become the best kept secret in town.

    • Worksheets on Heart-warming Communications: Compelling message worksheet, Story worksheet, Communication strategies worksheet, Communication Plan template, Communication checklist, and more.


  • Webinar #3: Asking for Money

    Here’s where the good stuff is! You’ll learn the 3 basic fundraising strategies you MUST implement for long-term success. You’ll learn how to evaluate fundraising opportunities to decide whether or not to pursue them, and where you should be spending your fundraising resources. You’ll see a simple fundraising plan that you can use to get yourself organized. And you’ll hear stories from actual nonprofits that have used these fundraising strategies so you can learn from their successes and failures.

You’ll learn how to build a relationship on purpose (it’s not as hard as you might think) and create donor loyalty (a MUST for raising big bucks!). This session alone will make all the difference in your fundraising – get this part right and everything else gets easier.

Paula Barnes, Founder, Horse Dreams, Macon, GA

“Sandy is a wealth of knowledge! If you are struggling with your nonprofit and really need help with fundraising, she’s the one to go to. I highly recommend you look at the Fundraising QuickStart, even if you think you already know what you need to know about fundraising. You’ll be glad you did!

Vanessa Scales, Co-Founder, Servant’s Heart Jamaica, Cleveland, TN

“I am the Executive Director of a small non-profit working in Liberia, West Africa. I backed into this thing – I was helping a few people as sort of a hobby, and travelling to Liberia once or twice a year. I started the non-profit to make it all legal and so some friends could help. Things got totally out of hand (best news of my whole life, actually) and now I’m working on how to grow donations to accomplish all the things we would like to do. Bottom line — you are the best thing to come along. You’re always so on-point and so helpful. Thank you! God bless you!”

Andy Perkins, Executive Director BESTWA, Dallas, TX
