My Big-Money Plans for You

Coaching, training and support to fully fund your nonprofit, so you spend more time changing lives and less time worrying about money.

Motivate Donors to Give

Keep donors reading, responding and GIVING! Learn how to craft messages that resonate and stick with prospects, so you open donors’ hearts and wallets.

Build a Loyal Donor Base

Find the perfect new donors. Surround yourself with people who share your mission and help you grow. Nurture donors to keep them connected and engaged.

Grow Predictable Revenue

Choose the right mix of events, grants, and asks. Develop clear plans, so you know exactly which strategies bring in the most money for your nonprofit, year after year.

Faster Fundraising Made Simple

You started your nonprofit because you want to make a difference in the world. That’s the easy part. And you know that the more money you raise, the more lives you change.

But, if you’re new to fundraising, or you’ve tried raising money and can’t seem to bring enough in, the whole process can seem hard, stressful or overwhelming.

Fundraising shouldn’t be complicated, time-consuming or dull. That’s why we’ve carefully crafted Project SmartSprout to help you grow your confidence and build your skills so you can grow your nonprofit sustainably. Our team of SmartSprout coaches is ready to teach, guide and answer all your questions.

Imagine if…

  • You didn’t have to worry about money every month and know you have tools or resources to bring in big money any time you need it.
  • You could learn what ideas or activities work the first time, so you stop wasting precious time and resources on DIY disasters.
  • You could have the confidence (and the right words) to ask for what your nonprofit needs, no matter what the situation.
  • You could raise big bucks to fund your mission — predictably — time after time, year after year, without overwhelm and struggle.

Happy People Say…

“I’ve learned that I am wasting my time with nickel-and-dime fundraising activities. I was really excited to partner with Amazon Smile and had to chuckle when Sandy mentioned that it’s a waste of time. I also took away how important “the right message” is. I think we get caught up in jargon. We have a target market of child care providers and I really don’t think people get what we do. I just joined today so I plan to watch ALL of the webinars. I am especially interested in figuring out who our donor prospects are”.

Denise Meyer, CEO, Action for Child Care, Owosso, MI

“My biggest take away thus far has been figuring out our core number. I was shocked when I did the match and saw that we spend $1.83 a day per person to keep clients housed! I usually have to do the math to prove to others it’s true. That is one very motivating number! Thank you!!”

Sheila Michel, Founder, TORCH, Oak Ridge, TN

“Project SmartSprout has helped put grants back on the priority list for me. I love the budget template and the list of supporting documents – it helps to see what all I need to have ready before applying for grants. I’ve been inspired all over again to go for it!”

Kristi Werre, Co-Founder, Illuminate India, Medford, OR

“I’ve learned so much from Project SmartSprout! The webinar on mindset was super interesting because it was more focused on mental toughness. It explained how the 3 big lies make don’t allow us to reach our full potential. Then, we learned how to shift our energy, refocus and move forward with our projects. Our brains are not capable of being creative and negative at the same time = really eye opening. I find myself repeating that last nugget now daily.”

Aine Doley, President, Catadelphia, Philadelphia, PA

“I was lucky enough to find you in my first year of operation 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 to real dollars coming in the door. I’m looking forward to improving my Board and am actually excited about grant writing. I rely on you more than anyone else to support my organization. Thank you!”

Becky Roy, Founder, Draft Gratitude, Winchester, NH

“Sandy brings her expertise and years of experience to teach, guide, and support you. Her friendliness and training demeanor proves that she is on your side and part of your team.

The fundraising plan she worked out for the Haven set us up to raise $100,000 this year — a significant increase over last year. I learned so much through our weekly sessions, and I now feel confident going forward that I have the tools I need to be sure our herd of retired Thoroughbreds will be fully funded throughout the coming years.”

Cheryl A. Bellucci, Former Director of Fundraising & Promotion, Our Mims Retirement Haven, Paris, KY
