Recharge Your Passion

This Isn’t Work. It’s Your Calling.

You’re one of the lucky ones. You get to follow your heart and passion to make a difference in the world. But, do you have the money you need to help those who need it most?

If you’re new to fundraising or you’re riding the roller coaster each month and can’t seem to bring enough money in, it can be hard to get everything done.

Fundraising doesn’t have to be complicated or hard. Join me at the Inspired Fundraising Retreat, a 2-day interactive and experiential workshop where you’ll learn how to get people to give, ask for exactly the right thing, and tell your story in a way that moves people to not only donate but get more involved, too.

Just imagine

  • You no longer have to scramble for money because you have the tools and know-how to bring in big bucks any time you need it.

  • You could have a year’s worth of fundraising, marketing, and communication activities that 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.

  • You could focus on your passion — changing lives and making a difference in the world.

  • You could be energized by other like-minded people, have a ton of fun, and learn how to inspire your supporters.
