Coaching & Mentoring

for Founders, Executive Directors, and Board Members

I know the look. That glassy-eyed look when you start talking about nonprofit management and fundraising. You would think Sheldon was explaining anything science to Penny! Yeah, that look. But not with me. I light up when someone mentions the words appeal letter or fundraising! I’ve designed these coaching programs so you can have a place to conquer your greatest challenge and have someone who knows the lingo to bounce ideas off of and help you get your nonprofit where you want it.

New to Fundraising or the Nonprofit World?

There is no better place to start than with a Coaching or Mentoring program to get you ready for donations and grants. During our group calls, you will have my expertise to help you through the topic’s challenges. 

You will have access to a private Facebook group where you and your fellow group members will be able to share your struggles and your wins. You are not alone!  (You might even find a friend who can talk your lingo!)

When you are done with the Coaching program, you will walk away with a solid plan of attack and the skills to get it done.

You can also add one on one coaching calls to help you focus on your particular challenge.

Choose the Mentoring program if you need one on one time with me each week to walk through a particular challenge you are facing. We will walk through the challenge, form some action steps, and have some accountability to take the necessary measures to propel you forward.

No matter which program you chose, I know you’ve got this!

Coaching is an affordable way to get a more personalized experience and training in the subjects you need more knowledge in. Group coaching is the most affordable way to gain personalized training while getting to know others. Group coaching includes two group video calls where we will dig into each person’s challenges on the subject and create real action items. Emails and the Facebook group provide accountability and ways to get specific questions answered. We focus on one topic so you can get one big thing off your plate during the month. Since you have a fundraising project off your plate, you are now able to focus on implementation and getting your mission funded.

Group Coaching plus One on One gives you the best of group coaching and one on private mentoring. You receive all the benefits of group coaching, focusing on a topic and getting to know others. You are able to go deeper into the subject, have a new level of accountability, and get to focus on solutions specific to your organization. You will gain knowledge in the subject matter and have an actionable plan when the month is over.

One on One Mentoring is completely specialized to you and your needs. Use the sessions to talk through the challenges you are facing with your subject and find real, actionable solutions. One on One Mentoring has a deep level of accountability.
