Join in from your computer wherever you are!

One great idea can change EVERYTHING!

These days, everyone is scrambling to switch their in-person fundraising to virtual.

And let’s be honest – living in a COVID world is exhausting on its own, much less trying to get creative to keep the money coming in.

Fundraising while social distancing can seem impossible.

But there IS a way! Join me at the Inspired Fundraising Retreat, a 2-day interactive workshop where you’ll learn how to ask for exactly the right thing at the right time and move people to give, all using online tools and techniques.

Just imagine

  • You no longer have to scramble for money because you have the tools and know-how to raise money online.

  • You have a plan for fundraising and communication activities that works the first time, so you stop wasting precious time and resources on DIY disasters.

  • 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 your average conference!

We know you miss going to events right now – we do too!

That’s why we decided to go all in on this year’s Inspired Fundraising Retreat and pack in as many ahas, connections, and mind-blowing ideas as possible (and, of course, there will be a few surprises along the way)!

The best part?

This year’s virtual event means no long flights, no stuffy hotel rooms, no rental cars, and no searching for food that meets your dietary needs.

You can roll out of bed and join us… even in your PJs!

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 massive progress in raising money online during fundraising season this year!

Speaking of surprises… we want to send you something!

Include your shipping address with your registration and you’ll get a special attendee box with an event workbook and surprise goodies to make your Retreat experience even better. But make sure to sign up by August 12th so we have time to get your box shipped out!

If you register after August 12th, don’t worry! We’ll get you digital versions of everything you need to participate in this virtual event.

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.

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 this is new to you, sign up for ZOOM practice call with a Get Fully Funded team member to make sure everything works so you’re ready to roll when the event starts on August 26th. 

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 so that you’ll be ready to go. We’ll also have a support team standing by to help you during the Retreat! And we will be hosting a practice Zoom the day 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 August 26th. If you want to receive our cool attendee box in the mail, you need to register by August 12th.

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, August 20th. 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.

We don’t have anything else on the calendar right now. We need to get through this year’s event before we can start planning for next year.
