I created Your First 500k after thinking of all the information I wish I had at the beginning of my fund development career. Where do I find donors? How do I get people to believe in the mission? How do I get people to give? How do I secure five and six-figure donations?
I talked to multi-million dollar non-profits and learned what set them apart from the ones that where struggling to raise thousands. That is when I started discovering the techniques I used to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars. After a short time of implementing these tried and proven strategies, the non-profit I managed at the time grew from raising $230k to just over $500k—in ONE YEAR. This non-profit paid off it’s debt and was able to set aside thousands of dollars in a rainy day reserve fund.
This experience led to the birth of Your First 500k—a comprehensive course that shows you step-by-step how to develop a fundraising strategy and execute it. Its goal is to equip non-profits with the tools they need to thrive in fundraising. If you missed my last two FREE training videos, you can find them here.
