Do you have your fundraising goal and wonder now what?
Does the thought of getting started seem overwhelming?
Are you inviting people to volunteer and give, but feel like the door keeps getting slammed shut?
There are more than 1.5 million nonprofit organizations in the U.S. alone and millions more around the world. It may seem like you'll never be able to stand out in the crowd.
Well, get ready to fully fund your budget! Whether you are funding a large campaign, a one-person budget, or starting up your nonprofit organization, Mary is your guide through interactive video and weekly coaching calls to educate, encourage and empower you to raise the funds you need to fulfill your mission.
Mary has raised millions of dollars as the development director for organizations including Special Olympics, the ALS Association, and the American Cancer Society. During her years at the American Cancer Society, Mary was tasked with starting up a new fundraising dinner that raised over $3.2 million in its first 5 years in a community of 160,000 people. The success of that event resulted in a management promotion and the opportunity to coach fundraisers across the country. While managing and training other fundraisers, Mary started to build out what later became the 7 steps featured in this course and her book, Fundraising Freedom.
Today, Mary brings her years of experience, her stories, and sage advice directly to you as your personal fundraising coach through this self-guided, 7-week course!
Through the Fundraising Freedom Companion Course, Mary will show you how to:
Week 1. Focus Your Vision with templates to identify your why and create your mission, vision, timeline and budget.
Week 2. Run Your Research with downloadable spreadsheets and tips to find the “right” prospects.
Week 3. Enlist Your Team with sample job descriptions to recruit your lead volunteer.
Week 4. Enhance Your Brand with access to sample logos, one-pagers, case documents and websites.
Week 5. Deploy Your Team with team building strategies and tips to create an empowered and effective leadership team.
Week 6. Organize Your Ask with strategies on how to ask corporations, organizations, individuals, family, friends and strangers ensuring your ask is effective and dollars aren’t left on the table.
Week 7. Make Your Difference and celebrate your success as you learn how to track your progress and properly steward and thank your team!
The Fundraising Freedom Companion Course will free up your time, increase your funds, and teach you the skills you need to effectively lead your team.
Just imagine what the cost could be if you DON'T raise the funds you need. You'll find out quickly how this course pays for itself in just a matter of days!
"I met Mary after purchasing and reading just a few chapters of her book, Fundraising Freedom. I knew I needed to be coached by her so we could do better with our fundraising for our church’s ministry initiatives. Her personal style and caring support are phenomenal. Her resources are top notch. She has an incredible ability to help anyone take steps forward regardless of their starting point. I highly recommend being coached by Mary if you are a nonprofit or ministry leader. She will open your eyes to how you can exponentially fund your work and guide you to work the process."

"I heard Mary speak at Chi Alpha Campus Ministries' Reach the University Institute and knew I needed to hire her as my coach. After implementing her plan, everything I did improved - my vision, my resources, my ask, and my network. I have found Mary to be nothing but professional, personable and pro-active in all aspects of fundraising. I am now fully funded after tripling my recurring personal budget and resourced our local ministry with both in-kind donations and financial support by connecting with local businesses, individuals, and non religious organizations.”
- Stephen MacDonald, Campus Director, Georgia Southern Chi Alpha
