I’ve been in your shoes.
Nearly 20 years ago, I found myself raising money for a young, growing nonprofit. I didn’t know what I was doing at the time and found myself trying anything and everything to raise money.
Some ideas worked – others didn’t. But because I was committed to the mission, I learned from my mistakes, stepped out of my comfort zone, and kept moving forward.
Within a year, we doubled the size of our donor base and quickly grew our annual revenue to more than $100,000!
My secret? I found a predictable, repeatable process that worked. Since then, I’ve shared it with rescue missions, food banks, kids’ programs, animal shelters, and more – helping others like me raise millions of dollars for their small, young nonprofits.
The truth is: I don’t want you settling because you don’t understand how to raise money. I’m committed to stripping away the overwhelm you feel about growing your nonprofit by giving you the tools, resources, and support you need to produce predictable fundraising results.
Younger organizations tend to skip over what’s hard, but I’ll teach you how to focus on what you NEED to put in place in order to grow your organization in a way that provides you with both a solid foundation and a promising future.
“Fundraising TV paid for itself within 2 months!”
Then we ended the year $30,000 over our goal! A lot went into that but I know the specific, targeted help I got from Fundraising TV helped me focus on exactly what I should be doing and how to get it done. I love the bite-sized guidance on specific issues that show up right when I need it!

Fundraising TV Guide
Your programming to becoming fully funded
As soon as you enroll in Fundraising TV, I’ll ask you to take a short quiz so I can evaluate where you are on your nonprofit journey and recommend the best way forward for you.
I call this way forward your Success Path – a personalized roadmap with step-by-step instructions to guide you toward fully funding your young nonprofit.
The Success Path features 4 distinct stages of growth that every nonprofit moves through as it matures.
Each stage has its own unique set of challenges, and the faster you overcome them, the faster you can move on to the next stage – getting you closer to funding your nonprofit (the ultimate goal)!
Getting Started with
This is the first stage in your fundraising journey and it’s an exciting time for you!
Maybe you already have an idea for a nonprofit or identified a cause you’re passionate about supporting, so what’s next?
In this stage, I’ll show you how to begin taking your idea from a dream to reality using core organization building blocks and by developing foundational nonprofit knowledge.
- Develop an idea for your nonprofit and how to anchor your plans so it’s something people will want to support
- Decide when to officially start your nonprofit and what you need to know before you do
- How to write a mission statement that’s clear, concise, and powerful
- How to build your first Board of Directors and identify the types of leaders who can make your dream a reality
“We’ve gotten terrific ideas we can use immediately for our animal shelter. Fundraising TV has given us a strong knowledge base to FINALLY get our fundraising plan done!”
“You can’t sign up fast enough! Sandy over-delivers on her commitment to create a mindset of confidence in raising funds for your cause.”
Building a Solid
Maybe you’re a new nonprofit and ready to generate momentum to help your organization grow successfully. Or maybe you’re an older nonprofit trying
to identify the holes in your systems.
In this stage, you’ll identify and create the processes, systems, and necessary internal structure needed to help you scale your nonprofit with confidence.

“The knowledge Sandy gives us is invaluable and she gives us plenty of time to pick her brain. I love being able to watch the videos anytime instead of trying to fit them in my schedule. I’ve built my knowledge and my confidence, and I appreciate Sandy and her whole team!”
“These short videos are like just-in-time shipping. I get what I need, when I need it. I can watch the content I want, get the specific info I need, and it doesn’t kill my day. Fundraising is magical when you get it right and Sandy can point you in the right direction.”
Your infrastructure is in place and working, programs are running, and now you’re focused on raising awareness, raising money, and changing more lives.
Except it’s not as easy as it looks. Raising the money you need takes a lot of work and there’s always something new to learn.

“I brought in more money in the last 3 months than I did in the entire previous year! Working with Sandy and being part of Fundraising TV has taught me so much, but my biggest takeaway is valuing the donor and making everything about them. Fundraising TV is the best decision you’ll ever make for your organization! Sandy is the wisest, most genuine, helpful person you’ll ever know.”
“I’m confident now that I can have donor conversations that convert to donations. Our team raised $13,000 in the last 6 weeks of 2019 which was over 5x what we raised last year! I now know how to tell our story without feeling sales-y and that’s huge for me! I’m confident now that I can have donor conversations that convert to donations. I appreciate Fundraising TV so much – the videos are short and packed with content that I can immediately use and get results with. I always know exactly what to do next and when I complete the tasks, I can see the results in the donations coming in.”
Getting Fully Funded
By the time you get to stage 4, you’re entering into the land of fully funded operations!
Not only is your nonprofit’s budget fully funded, your fundraising is more sophisticated, you’re segmenting your donor list for appeals, establishing
endowments, fully staffed, and more.
In this final stage of your Success Path, you’ll take your final steps toward fundraising with both a renewed peace of mind and confidence.

- How to get planned giving in place
- Identify when you’re ready for a capital campaign
“Fundraising TV is great and provides valuable tips for busy and overworked people. My small nonprofit applied Sandy’s Giving Tuesday campaign recommendations and generated over $1,300. That’s more in one day than we raise in our annual event! Now we’re solidifying our infrastructure and can’t wait to learn what’s next.”

As the Lone Fundraiser for my nonprofit, I was looking for tips, helpful hints, and best practices. And did I find it! Fundraising TV has helped me get a handle on our fundraising and implement strategies to increase our fundraising efforts. The most important thing so far has been the changes we’ve made in donor recognition and retention. We now have a plan for that and are excited to see what happens.
When I signed up for Fundraising TV, I was hoping to get practical information, tools, and answers to specific questions about raising more funds for our animal shelter. After being in the program for over a year, I’ve gotten wonderful nuggets of information that I could use right away. I also have used the calendar for my strategic fundraising plan, the core number calculator and I love the videos that I can go back to any time. The Swipe Files are great – lots of examples that help me with ideas and wording!
“Overall our group went from raising under $40k per year to over $110k. I attribute a lot of that to things I learned in the program and support on
Fundraising TV has more than paid for itself. Using the suggestion about Facebook birthday fundraisers, we have raised an additional 10% so far. I love the Facebook group and being able to get feedback from people who have experience in a particular area.
“I have followed Sandy Rees’ blog for the last 4 years while starting a nonprofit from the ground up. When she presented the idea of Fundraising TV, I jumped at the chance for quick and easy info on the fly and I knew she would pick topics that were relevant to small nonprofits who want to do big things.
And I have found it to be true. I have taken the class on the Fundraising Blueprint but when fundraising TV came up with Core Number info it spurred me to get that done — and I did! We now have a great focus for our fundraiser and know how much we need to raise to keep our programs going and growing.
I have learned about creative donor recognition, and how to diversify funding – which I used in planning with the Board. Sandy presents info in a way that is fun, energizing and exciting. Not only that what pops up in my inbox – but encouraging words every so often just when they are needed. And one of the best parts of Fundraising TV – if I have a crazy question I have not been able to figure out the answer to, NOW I have a whole forum of people to ask and I get answers and perspectives! For the low-cost investment, I have received high impact benefit!”
