One great idea can change EVERYTHING!

And we’ve got you covered.

Our 120-Day Foolproof Fall Fundraising Plan Template walks you step-by-step through EVERYTHING you should be doing to build relationships, raise awareness, and bring in money.

Just follow the plan as is or customize it to fit your unique situation.

No guessing. No missed opportunities. Just follow the daily calendar and watch the magic happen!

Just imagine

  • You no longer have to scramble for ideas to raise money from September through December because you have a detailed plan that outlines everything.

  • You know when and how to ask for money so that people are inspired by your mission and eager to help.

  • You have the confidence to ask for what your nonprofit needs (and get it!).

  • You can focus on your passion — changing lives and making a difference in the world instead of worrying about money.

The Inspired Fundraising Retreat is NOT a webinar!

We know you’re tired of dry, dull Zoom meetings. We are too!

That’s why we created the Inspired Fundraising Retreat to have lots of exercises, small group activities, and even humor so you can soak up the good stuff without getting bored.

The best part?

You’ll meet people who can be amazing resources (and even friends!) to help you grow your small nonprofit. You’ll love the breakout sessions throughout the day that give you the chance to talk through your ideas and hear what’s working for others.

Plus, our virtual events are known for being fun, engaging, and full of practical nuggets you can use right away!

Just set aside 2 days to be with us and experience an online event like none other you’ve ever seen before!

Best of all, you’ll get the know-how and inspiration to make this your BEST fundraising season ever!

What past attendees say…

“This is the best/most engaging virtual training event I’ve done. The physical box being sent in advance was a really nice touch. I loved having the physical workbook to take notes in, and the emoji sticks and other items were thoughtful and helped promote engagement. Well done!

I’ve read some of Sandy’s posts and received some of her emails and those have been super helpful, plus the offer to provide a 120-day fundraising plan was very appealing. I also really needed some motivation in getting back on track heading into this giving season, so I decided to try it — and I’m glad I did!

I did receive the motivation I was looking for, and the content of the sessions and the 120-day plan made it feel way more manageable than just knowing I needed to do it. Feels like a great jumping off point for the season. 

The content was very helpful, very relevant, and didn’t feel at all stale. The resources and tips provided were practical and feel achievable. Sandy is super engaging, a great presenter, and there is clearly a great support team behind her as well.

If you are thinking about signing up, do it! It’s well worth the money. You will receive helpful tools, practical tips and motivation to feel equipped and ready for the year-end giving season.”

Erin Todd, Board of Directors, Kiunga, Inc. Nashville, TN

“Engagement was great! Lots of good discussion in the chat, and knowing we were all on a big screen that Sandy could see made it feel more like we were together in a big room. Great job! I took the webinar “Do These 3 Things Now to Blow Past Your Holiday Fundraising Goals” and Sandy talked about the planning calendar. I got a lot out of that webinar and I reaaallllyyyy wanted that calendar, so I signed up. 🙂

Oh my goodness, I got SO many takeaways! [Just to name a few]: Nonprofits don’t have needs — those you serve have needs; donors don’t give to you, they give THROUGH you; the planning calendar; and the storytelling formula. 

The information was fantastic and will be useful and helpful, but the best part was that you made it FUN and interactive!

This is well worth the time. You’ll come away with TONS of actionable tips!”

Julie Mallard, Executive Director, United Way of Delta County Escanaba, MI

“You exceeded my expectations in keeping us interested AND entertained.

Our program feels dormant after many covid pivots, which made it hard to feel enthused about asking for money.  Your weekly emails helped, but being able to devote time to getting ready for “fundraising season” was a perfect antidote.

I felt like I was getting real and useful information from those with experience and joy in their work.  What could be better?

I think it was powerful that you had many coaches right in the chat supporting everyone while Sandy kept things moving.

It was a surprisingly great way to get re-energized to prepare for the fall giving season. So many inventive ways that we were kept engaged while being given really useful and succinct information.  Time wasn’t wasted, it was well spent and even enjoyed!”

Alice Cravens, Program Director , Heat of the Kitchen San Francisco, CA

“I have had SO MANY AHA moments the last two days! I came into this feeling uninspired, tired, stressed. I am feeling energized, encouraged, and have gained so many tools and ideas to take back to our board. I feel alive again and know we can do so much more moving forward. Thank you so much for the time and energy you put into this retreat! You are an AWESOME Team. Thank you for putting this all together for us. You’re a lifesaver.”

Tami Williamson, Pepperdine University, Malibu, CA

“If you really want to learn strategies that can change the game for your organization, you don’t want to miss this! I came back because I needed to be with my people and be re-energized and focused to rock out end of year!”

Angela Molina, Development Director, Grace Home Ministries, Chesterfield, VA

“I’ve learned so much at these events. I’ve enjoyed everyone sharing their expertise and the creative ways in which they are shared. THANK YOU for helping me to be more successful for my non-profit! Thank you to everyone for making this another great experience. I can’t wait to come to an in-person event in the future! YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!”

Brenda Forton, Fundraising Coordinator, Love Thy Neighbor Grand Traverse Region, Traverse City, MI

“Don’t put this off!  It’s worth every penny and more!!  You really get your money’s worth and it will be an unforgettable joy that will stay with you and give you the energy and enthusiasm to keep going…even if you’re tired.  The love that was demonstrated will pull you through.  Plus, it will help you not only as a  non-profit supporter but as a human being too.  If you think about it, life doesn’t give us many opportunities to fulfill our own needs though we love helping others get theirs met.  We all crave having our spiritual needs fulfilled and this virtual workshop does it for each of us as caring people and as the ones who want to spread this kind of love around our beautiful planet Earth.  This workshop empowers important path cutters who are here to serve a much larger plan!”

Marika Ray, Lightfield Foundation, Becket, MA

“There’s so much useful content in two days, I rarely attend a conference with so much information that I can immediately implement. Everyone is super positive and helpful – the connections you’ll make at the event are priceless.  This is a particularly good conference for a non-profit that’s in their first 1-5 years of existence.  That said, I was truly impressed with a) the number of well-established non-profits that came and shared their experiences, and b) the number of people who raised their hands as repeat attendees. It’s an incredible amount of work to put an event like this together – content alone is huge, but all the tech is a whole different ball game. WELL DONE!!!

Vicki Carson, President, Maryland Fund For Horses, Columbia, MD

“You all did an amazing job with the virtual retreat! I loved getting to meet new people and bounce some thoughts around. It was also nice to know that I have some things figured out and still have a lot of work to do in some other areas. The fundraising retreat was amazing and I loved every minute of it. I feel empowered and actually capable of raising the funds we need to do the work that we are called to and this is all because of you and your team! Thanks again!!”

Jenny Wilburn, Beautiful Feet Ministries Tanzania, Conway, SC

“I attended Day 1 of the conference and I’d like to tell you that it was time well spent. I very much appreciate your guidance and attention to detail. I thought the material was well organized and presented clearly (even the math – I was a math major in college 🙂). I also very much appreciate your attempts to give us mental and physical breaks. Got to admit my eyes are (happily) pretty tired right now. But the varied activities, raffles, and especially the stretching helped keep me focused. I thank you for that. Oh…. and Billy Boyd was a delightful include. I’m LOL as I write this – that really was wonderful.”

Susan Keenan, PhD, Fierce Love Rescue, Winchester, VA

The schedule for the event is Thursday, September 22nd from 10:00 am eastern – 3:30 pm eastern & Friday, September 23rd from 10:00 am eastern – 3:30 pm eastern. We’ll have breaks throughout the day so you can get up and stretch, refresh your drink, take a bio break, and visit virtually with our sponsors.

Set these dates aside just like you would for an in-person event. We’re going to pack in opportunities to learn and connect with others, show you real-life examples of fundraisers that WORK now, and sprinkle in some awesome surprises along the way. You don’t want to miss a thing! So, clear your schedule and be ready to be fully present the whole time.

Yes! We’re recording the whole event and you’ll get access to everything for 90 days so you can rewatch anything you missed the first time or catch the really good parts again.

Dang, we’re so sorry! It might be in your spam folder. Go ahead and shoot us an email at and we’ll make sure your registration went through and that you’re all set.

The Inspired Fundraising Retreat will happen via Zoom and you’ll get all the instructions for logging in closer to the event. If you’re new to Zoom, sign up for a practice call with a Get Fully Funded team member to make sure you’re ready to roll when the event starts on September 22nd. 

There’s no homework to do before the Retreat, but it might be a good idea to have a copy of your fundraising plan and your operating budget handy so you can refer to them as needed.

Since this is a virtual event, it’s going to be easy to get distracted and having your video on can really help you focus. Plus, we want to see your smiling face! Show up to this virtual event the same way you would show up in person – smiling and ready to learn!

Yes! We’ll send you a guide before the Retreat starts that walks you through everything you need to know. We’ll also have a support team standing by to help you during the Retreat! And we will be hosting practice Zoom calls before the Retreat if you have never participated in a Zoom livestream.

You can register all the way up through the start of the event on September 22nd. If you want to receive our cool attendee box in the mail, you need to register by September 8th.

No worries! We’ll give you links to download everything you need for the event.

We understand that things happen and you may need to change your plans. We offer full ticket refunds until 5 pm eastern on Friday, September 16th. Just remember – if you DO have to change your plans, you’ll get the recording of the whole event with your ticket, so you can always watch it later.

Unfortunately, we are not offering discounted tickets for additional attendees this year. HOWEVER, you are welcome to invite others to watch with you through the same computer, which means they can join for free. Free is better than a discount! 😉

We don’t have next year’s event planned yet, but stay tuned!
