“I love my job, but I wish I didn’t have to raise money.”
If you are a busy, high-achieving non-profit director or social entrepreneur who feels this way, then the Fearless Fundraising Accelerator could be right for you.
Do one or more of these sound like you?
The thing is… while you wish you could ignore these blocks to fundraising,
if you want to have a big impact, you can’t.
The good news is that it’s possible to change all this.
But you need to focus not only on the SKILLS of fundraising, but the MINDSET too.
And here’s your opportunity:
Hi, I’m Sarah. I help non-profit leaders and social entrepreneurs build lasting relationships that raise more money. I’ve raised millions for a variety of organizations, and had to grow my own mindset and leadership approach to succeed. I’m a certified coach through Leadership That Works, and leaders tell me that I’m skilled at helping them to create inner and outer shifts that yield results. I’m excited to help you, too.
“Sarah helped prepare me to meet with one of the preeminent leaders in philanthropy. I learned how to leave more space for listening through following my own curiosity about the other person and asking great discovery questions. As a result, I built a great rapport and connection with this prospect, rather than just a one-way pitch. I walked out of the meeting with his meaningful advice and the offer to introduce our organization to his peers.”
– Diana Essex-Lettieri, Director of Strategy & Operations, Asylum Access

“Sarah helped me see fundraising as a way to grow the movement for my cause. With her coaching, I now know that a potential donor is a potential community member. This shift, combined with frameworks and insight about best practices in donor relations, has allowed me to prepare for my third crowdfunding campaign to fund my virtual law office with more excitement about what’s ahead.”
