How to Choose a Mentor

How to Choose a Mentor

It’s great if a mentor is knowledgeable about your field. However, if they have a good network, this will advance you quicker than someone who does not network well.

If someone tells you as a new nonprofit they can write grants for you and get them funded, they either are naive or want to sell you services. I was naive enough when I started to think every new organization could get grants right away.

About Me

Most nonprofit leaders lay awake at night trying to figure out how to fund their mission. Hi! I'm Alesha. I teach sustainable fundraising in a way that they can take action today so they can serve their clients. I can help you move from just getting started funding your new nonprofit to gaining confidence in your fundraising and building relationships to knowing what works for your organization and looking at the infinite game when it comes to funding. I’ve worked with nonprofit Founders and written the book I HAVE MY 501(C)3! NOW WHAT?!? Your Blueprint to Starting Your Nonprofit Without Being the Sole Funder that lays the foundations for funding in a new nonprofit. I’ve worked in Development (Fundraising) Departments in large organizations and I know the no cost, low-cost methods they use to bring in funding. I bring those sound strategies to the nonprofits I serve.

Club Calendar

Keep up with what’s going on in the club! Facebook Lives, new releases, challenges, and all things fundraising can be found here.

Avoid spinning your wheels looking for donors in all the wrong places and instead hang out in all the right places.

Donors are challenging. Who are they? Where do you find them? Raising money with them feels uncomfortable. Raising money without them through events and grants feels safe. But those methods are more advanced methods and without mastering the basics, the advanced methods won’t be sustainable. It’s like trying to put a roof on a house without laying the foundation or building the studs for the walls. You may be able to build the roof but it will never get higher than the ground and never protect you when the storms come. Challenge starts on February 15th
