Fundraising

Services

Are you a one woman (or man) show? 

I remember working at a nonprofit and thinking I would love to have eight arms right now (or a few clones!). There just wasn’t enough time in the day for one person to get it done!  I was a one-woman department, juggling 20 highly knowledge specialized projects at any given time. I didn’t have an assistant and we didn’t have a volunteer who had the specialized knowledge in fundraising to pass a project off to. 

I wish I’d had someone like me to help.

Mathis Nonprofit Services’ capabilities are augmented by an extensive network of printers, graphic artists, and media outlets.

It’s like having a whole army of me!

My marketing career began over ten years ago as a Licensed Marketing/Listing Manager for a multi-million dollar Real Estate team. I learned about email marketing and lead generation from my time with the team.

I moved on from real estate into the nonprofit world. I spent time as an Administrative Secretary with heavy marketing duties. I put together brochures, annual reports, display boards, and employee newsletters. I learned about nonprofits and their specific needs.

Moving on to bigger things, I became a member of a Development team responsible for raising nearly five million dollars. I coordinated the marketing which ranged from a 24 page magazine to events. While I was there I met Dan Reeves, former Atlanta Falcons coach and the Harlem Globe Trotters. (Personal highlights of my career!) I learned so much from my time there. I learned the technical aspects of writing successful appeals and the project management skills necessary to get an appeal letter out. During my time there, I learned how to write and manage appeal campaigns that brought in a minimum of $80,000!

 

$80,000 Appeal Campaigns

My specialty is creating and running appeal campaigns. I consistently brought in a minimum of $80,000  per appeal for a previous employer.  I was on staff and for four years I learned the secrets to writing and managing a successful appeal campaign. I would like to bring smaller nonprofits the secrets to my success. The best part for you is that I cost 1/3 less than someone on staff!

Grant Management

I began grant writing several years ago by writing grants for my church. They had a big vision of a summer camp instead of Vacation Bible School and needed serious funds to pull it off. I was able to write a grant that was funded for $5,000 and helped make the camp a success. Since then, I have written grants for other organizations. My grant total since 2017 is roughly $20,000.
