What others are saying after attending the Inspired Fundraising Retreat!

“Get back time in your life and quit running in circles. 

Before coming to the Inspired Fundraising Retreat, I felt overwhelmed by the marketing content that I was finding online.

The 120-Day Foolproof Calendar is simple, easy to use, and helped me organize my year-end fundraising so that I can focus on implementing.  

Sign up for the Inspired Fundraising Retreat, and you’ll learn how to plan out the things you already are doing, so you don’t have to rush at the last minute for a half-decent outcome.”

L’Anne Sciba, Executive Director, Mary’s House of Louisiana Shreveport, LA

This is like a university degree amount of knowledge.

I felt overwhelmed trying to figure out what to prioritize before signing up for the Inspired Fundraising Retreat,

I love the 120-Day Foolproof Calendar! It really grounds me and I feel like I can apply it to the whole year. With a small staff, it also helps me figure out areas I need help and who to assign things to.

If you are thinking about attending—do it, do it, do it!  Do not allow the cost to stand in your way!”

Sharyn Mahoney, Executive Director, Rejoice School of Ballet, Nashville, TN

You exceeded my expectations!

It was hard to feel enthused about asking for money before signing up for the Inspired Fundraising Retreat. I needed to devote time to getting ready for “fundraising season”, and this workshop was a perfect antidote.

The Inspired Fundraising Retreat was a surprisingly great way to get re-energized to prepare for the fall giving season, and it was so powerful that you had so many coaches providing in the moment coaching in the chat. 

My time was well spent! If you are thinking about attending, definitely do it!”

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

Every single solitary item of discussion was a nugget of gold! 

I am very new to fundraising and needed some wind in my sails and some direction, so I signed up for the Inspired Fundraising Retreat. 

I rarely go to events like this that are so full of useful information. The Retreat is all practical, useful information, and strategies that can be implemented right away.

This is a fantastic workshop for new fundraisers who need support and direction.”

What past attendees say…

This was the best and most engaging virtual training event I’ve done.

I really needed some motivation to get back on track heading into the giving season, plus I wanted the 120-Day Fundraising Plan, so I decided to sign up for the Inspired Fundraising Retreat — and I’m glad I did!

The 120-Day Plan made year-end fundraising feel way more manageable. I now feel like I have a great jumping off point for the season this year. 

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

You’ll come away with TONS of actionable tips!

I reaaallllyyyy wanted the 120-Day Foolproof Calendar, so I signed up for the Inspired Fundraising Retreat!

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

This event is well worth the time. I would definitely recommend this workshop to anyone thinking about attending.”

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

I have had SO MANY AHA moments over the last two days!

Before coming to the Inspired Fundraising Retreat, I felt uninspired, tired, stressed.

Now 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

I learned so much at the Inspired Fundraising Retreat!

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! 

If you are thinking abut attending, DO IT! It’s worth every penny!”

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!! 

Our nonprofit had depended on one large donor for years and then that stopped. We had to figure out how to do better, and FAST!

After attending the Inspired Fundraising Retreat, I now know what to do to make our little nonprofit grow! 

You really get your money’s worth and you’ll have an unforgettable joy that will stay with you, giving you the energy and enthusiasm to keep going…even if you’re tired.”

Marika Ray, Lightfield Foundation, Becket, MA

The connections I made were priceless!

My main reason for attending was getting the year-end planning calendar.

Mission accomplished. I learned SO much, and it was really inspiring to hear all of the success stories from real fundraisers.

There’s so much useful content in two days – I rarely attend a conference with so much information that I can immediately implement.  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

Sitting still, staring at a screen all day is boring, so we’re NOT doing that!

The schedule for the event is Thursday, August 17th from 10:00 am eastern – 3:30 pm eastern & Friday, August 18th 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. 

There’s no homework to do before the Retreat, but it might be a good idea to have a copy of your current 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!

You can register all the way up through the start of the event on August 17th. If you want to receive our cool Attendee Box in the mail, you need to upgrade your ticket by August 3rd (or when supplies are gone). 

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 a full ticket refund until 5 pm eastern on Wednesday, August 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. 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!

What’s this worth to your nonprofit?

What’s financial security worth to you and your nonprofit, knowing that you’ll have the tools to bring in money any time you need it? Hundreds? Thousands?

What’s a good night’s sleep worth for you? And knowing you don’t have to worry about money anymore? (priceless, right?)

Oh, you can probably figure some of this out for yourself. But how long will that take? How many mistakes will you make? How many lives will suffer while you’re trying to get something to work? That’s the true cost. And one you can easily avoid.

So, let’s draw a line in the sand – no more overwhelm. No more DIY disasters. No more raising dribs and drabs that aren’t worth the time you spent raising money

Let’s grow your ability to raise big bucks during the holidays AND still enjoy your time off!
