Each course module is carefully segmented into bite-size pieces so you can log in and make progress in baby steps or big leaps “win-stacking” along the way. You'll also be guided through 5 units of skill-development assignments (plus bonus material).

This MasterClass includes more than 12 hours of video training to guide you through developing your Origin Story, creating your Donor Toolkit, and identifying and inviting prospects to live a bigger life through financially supporting your organization. Every resource you will need to raise money is provided. Among the many guides and templates you will make your own - including proposal templates, samples, recommendations, and major gift portfolio templates.
Any applied nonprofit fundraising course needs to involve mentorship to be effective. This allows you to build your fundraising muscles. For four weeks, you’ll work live in a private video room with top coaches and guest subject matter experts. In these trainings we'll be answering your questions, letting you share your experience and insights. This is where we will talk about the lessons, and get feedback about your celebrations and your frustrations. Here we focus on removing obstacles so you can reach your fundraising objectives
A nonprofit fundraising course should also include peer support. as it’s important for you to interact with other bright, dedicated founders who share the common goal of raising money with finite resources. Our private messaging and sharing group is a peer-learning moderated environment where you will share your progress, get feedback and encouragement. Of course we ask everyone to contribute as you are able. This is also a place you can request situational guidance that can be addressed during the next coaching video session, realize spontaneous insights, and "focus group" your work product along the way. Our start-to-finish training will have you ready to roll with ongoing support with a Rockstar group of peers
Major Gifts Magic Course Modules
Each of these modules below comes with a full complement of matching, pre-formatted downloads, guides and templates.
Checkpoint 1: Intro Roadmap & Pre-Training: Master Your Mission Statement
Magnetize your donors to your mission! You will master your mission statement.
This “elevator pitch” will allow you to speak with confidence and conviction to powerfully connect with and build relationships with donors. You’ll also develop your nonprofit story, learn how to unearth your compelling “Why” statement by distilling your Hero’s journey. Speak with confidence, starting with your one-sentence mission statement that will attract ideal donors to you.
Checkpoint 2: Develop a Benefit-Driven Budget and Use of Funds
For the next leg of our journey, we will develop two of your organization’s key assets: Your Use of Funds and Budget documents. Even the most casual donors with the capacity to write a Major Gifts check to your organization want a simple, written document explaining how their funds will be used. You can exceed their expectations and close donors by learning to powerfully articulate how you will create lasting change. Transforming their dollars into programs and activities will then be a no brainer.
Checkpoint 3: Build Your Case For Support and Donor Engagement Toolkit
Next, we'll build the most important document your nonprofit will ever create - your Case for Support. Your Case for Support will serve as the “Swiss Army Knife” of any fundraising program - it can serve as the backbone of your marketing and communications tool, a training and planning guide, and a source of inspiration across all stakeholders. This key document will powerfully convey your mission, vision, accomplishments (past, present and/or planned), your staff’s credentials, why your mission matters, and (particularly important in today’s glut of causes and distractions) why the donor should care. Most important, your CFS invites the donor to financially participate!
Checkpoint 4: Develop Your Donor Prospect List
“Where do I find donors?” is one of the most frequently asked questions we hear coming from our family of nonprofit founders. But like many of the solutions we seek in life across all domains, the answer starts in our own back yard and grows to span the entire globe. With approximately ~ 69% of Americans (and ~91% of wealthy households) giving charitably, and over $439 Billion in private dollars distributed in 2019, there’s plenty of money! The challenge is finding and connecting with the individuals, companies, and foundations who are looking to deploy it. We’ll smash through this obstacle with a simple process of defining and exploring “concentric circles” of relationship. By the end of this checkpoint, you will come away with a donor list that will likely surprise you.
Checkpoint 5: Manage Your Strategic Donor Portfolio
Fundraising is an emotionally charged, brain-taxing process, and without a Strategic Donor Portfolio management system, you might raise some money some of the time, but will likely fail to consistently produce results. Now it’s time to place donor prospect inside an easy-to-use, predictable system where you’ll cultivate them through the 5 stages of giving: identification, qualification, cultivation, solicitation and stewardship. This helps guarantee that, regardless of the situation, you’ll create a conveyor belt of donors and go from random starts and stops to a consistent flow of prospects and funding.
Checkpoint 6 [and Finish Line!]: Execute Your First Major Gifts Solicitation
Now that you have your arsenal of Donor Engagement Tools, a prospect list, and a means to manage those potential donors, it’s time to set up and carry out your Major Gifts Donor Prospect meetings!

Affordable Investment, Unlimited Potential Value
An MBA in Nonprofit Management and Development costs between $15,000 and $30,000, and can take 1-2 years to complete. While we are in favor of education, most founders do not have the kind of resources and time at their disposal for this.
Grant Writing? Absolutely essential for the long term success of many organizations, but with costs of $2500 to $10,000 or more for a grant writer, competition for grants, limitation on use of funds for specific program outcomes, and a timeline for the award, most organizations need discretionary funds in the bank to even consider writing grants. With the costs and risks associated with nearly every other path to fundraising mastery, this Major Gifts Magic Fundraising MasterClass delivers massive ROI!
