Let’s face it – running a nonprofit is hard.
You have dozens of demands on your time plus the constant need to raise money. FAST.
- …You’re constantly searching for the next fundraising idea to keep the bills paid.
- …You write a Facebook post (or 20) about your work, but in return you get nothing but crickets.
- …You have a few family and friends who support you, but it’s not enough and you have NO idea where to find more donors (you don’t know any rich people).
- …You’re pouring hours of time and energy into ideas that juuuuuuusst barely bring in money.
Some days you just feel lost.
You lay awake at night with a nervous stomach wondering if you’re ever going to have enough money in the bank.
You’re exhausted and lonely because no one else gets it.
It’s time you become a confident, knowledgeable fundraiser, who knows exactly what you’re doing
- Getting donations nearly every time you ask
- Feeling confident that you know who to ask and how to ask
- Easily finding new donors whenever you need them
- Raising enough money that you can focus on your nonprofit FULL TIME, even paying yourself!
Let’s expand your knowledge, grow your skills, and master your mindset so you can step into the role of Confident Fundraiser.
The biggest challenge is mastering your mindset. You have to believe you can be successful to see results.
You may have already bought into the myth that nonprofits are supposed to operate on a shoestring. Or that you need to target rich people to get funds. Or sell hundreds of cookies, calendars, or t-shirts to raise money.
Well, my friend, it’s NOT. TRUE. Nada. Zip. None of it.
You started your nonprofit to make a difference, not to raise money.
No one told you how good fundraising works or that you need relationships with donors or that you must look at the long game even when you need money NOW.
No one showed you how to plan your asks, communications, and warm touches to create an amazing donor experience, so they can’t help but give again and again.
Good news, cupcake! You CAN do this!
You CAN raise so much money that you have a surplus.
You just need a few things:
- A clear strategy for your time and money so you get the BIGGEST possible return.
- Templates to keep you from staring at a blank screen.
- A fundraising plan for the year so you ALWAYS know what’s next and can stop shooting from the hip.
- Rinse-and-repeat systems that make fundraising easy and predictable.
“Within a year, I doubled the size of the donor base and grew revenue over $100,000.”
I’m Sandy Rees and I’ve been in your shoes.
Nearly 20 years ago, I found myself in an unfamiliar role – raising money for a young nonprofit. I was inexperienced and made a lot of stuff up as I went.
But I learned from my mistakes and committed to the mission, stepping outside my comfort zone and doing the work. Within a year, I doubled the size of the donor base and grew revenue over $100,000.
Since then, I’ve worked with rescue missions, food banks, kids’ programs, animal welfare, and more, raising millions for small nonprofits. From startups to multi-million dollar charities, I know what it takes to grow a sustainable nonprofit.
I can’t STAND to see good causes struggle to raise money, because it just isn’t necessary. I’m committed to making fundraising simple for you so you can build your knowledge, skill, and confidence FAST, so you can change more lives.
Our team raised $13,000 in the last 6 weeks of 2019 which was over 5 times what we raised last year! I now know how to tell our story without feeling salesy 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.
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 fundriasing plan done!
Fundraising TV paid for itself within 2 months!I 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!
I have followed Sandy Rees’ blog for 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!

Nicole — It’s all because of you! Our coolest donation was when a 30 year old missing ring was found on the beach and returned to the owner. The owner tried to repay the guy who found her missing ring and instead he had her make a donation for him. She donated $1200 to us then her husband’s company ended up donating $12,000!

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 fare 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.
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.
AVS is a nonprofit startup and Fundraising TV is an excellent resource for us! You’ve inspired and motivated me, and I can’t wait to learn everything I can!
Ok, listen. there are other programs out there that teach you how to raise money. But where else can you get:
(watch whenever and wherever you like, even in your jammies!)
Practical, street-smart ideas and techniques that are proven to work for small nonprofits.
Coach that is 100% dedicated to your success.
You can probably figure some of this out yourself. But how long will that take? How many mistakes will you make? How many lives will suffer? 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 nickel-and-dime fundraising.
Let’s grow your ability to fully
fund your big mission!

Many of our most successful Fundraising TV subscribers had questions too before they decided to join. Click below to read answers to the most common questions asked about Fundraising TV:
Fundraising TV is awesome,
but it’s not for everyone.
THIS IS FOR YOU IF…
You live and breathe your nonprofit’s mission and aren’t satisfied with only changing a few lives when you know you could change SO MANY MORE.
You stepped up to become a nonprofit leader with little to no experience and now you’re ready to strip away the mystery and start raising money like the pros do.
You know this work is your calling and you’re on the right path, but funding it isn’t as simple as you thought and you’re ready for some help.
You’ve been trying to fundraise for months (or even years) but haven’t brought in the money you were hoping for.
You’re just getting started and want to NAIL fundraising right out of the gate.
THIS IS NOT FOR YOU IF…
You’re not 100% committed to figuring out how to fully fund your nonprofit’s work.
You’re not passionate about the work your nonprofit does.
You’re too busy to take action on what you learn.
Your fundraising program is sophisticated and you’re just looking for a couple of new ideas.
You no longer have money worries about your nonprofit and you already have good friends/connections with other nonprofit leaders.
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 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.
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.
“I’ve dedicated my life to helping people learn how to raise money for their good cause.”
I can’t stand to see nonprofits struggle with fundraising. I’ve dedicated my life to helping people learn how to raise money for their good cause.
I also can’t stand to see people struggle trying to make a decision.
So, regardless of whether you choose to subscribe or not, you need to gather the info you need to make a decision including the benefits (what you can GAIN from the program) and the costs (what you will LOSE when you don’t join).
Think about this: 7 out of 10 people will read this page and take no action. That means they will:
- Leave thousands of dollars on the table because they don’t know how to ask for money the RIGHT way.
- Spend most of their time scrambling for enough money to pay bills because they’re always working at the last minute with no plan.
- Lose countless hours of sleep and experience serious stress because of the constant worry about money.
- Hold their nonprofit back and keep it from growing, leaving lives on the line because they don’t have enough money to eliminate the waiting list or start the new program.
If you’re ready to end the struggle once and for all and learn to raise so much money you have a surplus, then join us in Fundraising TV.
