A Contest to Help Your Nonprofit Raise More Money

A Contest to Help Your Nonprofit Raise More MoneyAs I mentioned in an earlier post, I am leading a Financing Not Fundraising E-Course for nonprofit leaders who are ready to create a more sustainable financial engine for their nonprofit. I would like to give one nonprofit that can’t afford the registration fee the opportunity to participate in the class for free.

But because this E-Course requires not only a financial investment, but more importantly an investment of time and mind-share, I want to select a nonprofit leader who has a compelling case for why they are ready to move their nonprofit from fundraising to financing. So I am introducing this contest.

To recap, the Financing Not Fundraising E-Course will take a small group of nonprofit leaders who are ready to chart a more sustainable financial future for their nonprofit from fundraising to financing.

Over the course of two months under my guidance you will:

•    Undertake a comprehensive fundraising assessment of your nonprofit
•    Gain new money-raising ideas
•    Create a detailed financing plan
•    Hear from other nonprofit leaders in your shoes, and
•    Learn how to move your organization forward

To watch a video that describes the Financing Not Fundraising E-Course in more detail go here.

If you’d like to enter to win a free registration to the Financing Not Fundraising E-Course, fill out the form below. The nonprofit leader who makes the most compelling case for why they are ready to take their organization to the next level will be selected this Wednesday, May 1st. So submit your entry soon.

Update: A contest winner was selected so the contest is now closed.

Announcing New Financing Not Fundraising E-Course for Nonprofit Leaders

e-course slideI’ve been talking lately about nonprofits needing to make more investments in their organization, in their sustainability, and in their future. Well, I have the perfect opportunity for you to do just that. I’m excited to announce the newest Social Velocity tool — the Financing Not Fundraising E-Course. Over the course of two months I will be leading a group of 15 nonprofit Executive and Development Directors to determine what’s holding them back from raising more money and create a comprehensive financing plan for their organizations.

This e-course will take you from Fundraising to Financing. We’ll start with a fundraising assessment of where your organization currently is in your efforts to bring money in the door, and we’ll end with a comprehensive, actionable financing plan to move your organization forward.

Here’s how it will work:

  • We’ll kick off with a webinar to help everyone understand what a fundraising assessment looks like and what it includes.
  • Everyone will be sent away to complete the detailed fundraising assessment I will provide them.
  • I will then analyze each individual fundraising assessment.
  • The 15 participants will be split into two groups. I will lead a 90-minute coaching session with each group to go individual-by-individual to explain what their fundraising assessment revealed and where they should focus their change efforts.
  • After the coaching sessions I’ll host an informal Google Hangout where participants can discuss questions, hurdles they are encountering, where they need help.
  • Then I’ll lead a second webinar to explain how to create a financing plan.
  • I’ll give everyone a Financing Plan template and detailed instructions on how to create their own financing plan.
  • Then I’ll analyze everyone’s completed financing plan.
  • We’ll do a second round of coaching sessions where I will go individual-by-individual to explain where their financing plans can be improved.
  • We’ll end with a final Google Hangout where everyone can discuss, ask questions, get support and move forward.
  • And throughout the process you can always reach out to me via phone and email with additional questions or for guidance.

The registration fee for the e-course is $499.

Of course I’m biased, but to me this investment just makes sense. With this e-course you can set your nonprofit on a path to a much larger, more sustainable financial engine. This is about making an investment now in order to enjoy a much larger payoff down the road.

If you want to learn more about the e-course, click here. Or, if you have additional questions or wonder if the e-course is right for you, email me at

If you’d like to join us, register soon. The e-course is limited to 15 people, and it’s already filling fast.

I hope to see you there!
