Grew a small youth arts and culture non-profit to $3 million (+endowment), nationally recognized organization. Strong emphasis on relationships with staff, funders, clients. Unique fundraising events expert - netting $250k per event.
Are you thinking of adding a signature event to your fundraising strategy? Or maybe you already have one, but had to cancel due to COVID-19 and are wondering what to do next. I'd love to talk to you about your event! Most non-profit events are barely break-even, but I've led a signature gala event for 10 years that nets 10% of my annual operating budget. I'd love to share my experience and hear your question, concerns, and challenges about pulling off (or cancelling) your next major event.
Let's talk about building a LONG-TERM grants fundraising program! Instead of chasing grants project-by-project, we'll talk about the secrets to keeping funders giving annual, unrestricted operating grants, growing WITH your organization and giving you the most flexibility to grow your programs. I have 13 years experience leading an organization with one of the strongest foundation fundraising programs of our peer organizations, representing 50% of our annual revenue and nearly 90% of capital project funding. My expertise is in private and family foundations.
