Don't allow failure to raise the funds you need for paychecks and programs to stop your nonprofit in its tracks. 

Many nonprofit founders don’t realize that they need a fundraising system.

Unfortunately, they also struggle to grow their nonprofit and make an impact with their important mission.

But one of the secrets of highly successful fundraisers is having a simple, reliable donor connection and cultivation system. They don’t leave raising financial support to chance… they systematize to generate prospect leads and manage their portfolio to connect with donors to secure repeat gifts.

Now you too can unlock the secrets to raising money by acquiring those same specific mindsets, tools, and systems - along with a step-by-step guide plan put these into action and raise fast cash.

This is why we've introduced your... 

Major Gifts Fundraising MasterClass

Success-minded nonprofit founders and core team members can achieve proficiency in fundraising in a short time, with a simple, proven set of assets and processes. And one method of raising money stands out as the biggest, quickest return on investment - especially for small to medium size nonprofit startups. That method is Major Gifts - and this is why we’ve created the Major Gifts MasterClass, a power-packed, no-nonsense online training and coaching course just for founders like you.

Special offer! Enroll now and get a 38% fast start discount!


This MasterClass Delivers, so You Can Too! Here's What You’ll Get When You Sign Up

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) culminating in a certification which will demonstrate your mastery and confidence.

Research shows there are three pillars to a transformative, applied learning experience, and all three are essential when it comes to tackling something as challenging as fundraising.

This “Applied Learning” model is far superior to a passive, informational approach, as you will execute a series of proven steps to equip yourself and actually raise money NOW. These transformative learning pillars are:

1. Content

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.

2. Coaching

Any applied nonprofit fundraising course needs to involve mentorship to be effective, so you can build your fundraising muscles. For four weeks, you’ll work live in a private video room with top coaches and guest subject matter experts, answering your questions and 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, and focus on removing obstacles and reach your fundraising objectives

3. Community

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. Your private messaging and sharing group is a peer-learning moderated environment where you will share your progress and get feedback and encouragement, and 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.

Major Gifts Magic Course Modules

Each of these modules below comes with a full complement of matching, pre-formatted downloads, guides and templates.

1

Checkpoint 1: Intro Roadmap & Pre-Training: Master Your Mission Statement

Magnetize your donors to your mission! You will master your mission statement and “elevator pitch” 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, and speak with confidence, starting with your one-sentence mission statement that will magnetize donors to you.

2

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 by transforming their dollars into programs and activities.

3

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 and 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. And most important, your CFS invites the donor to financially participate!

4

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. And 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 through 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.

5

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. So 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.

2

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! This is NOT the time to just "et it ride" - because

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 cots 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!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the MasterClass different than the Challenge?

This Major Gifts MasterClass is a "10X" big brother to the Major Gifts Challenge. This MasterClass is massively enhanced, with a deeper level of detail, and we've broken the material down into indexed bite-sized pieces so you can go through the course at your own pace and reach a level of mastery. Transcripts, Slide Decks, and downloads are easier to access. AND...unlike the Challenge, the MasterClass comes with follow-up coaching, and you'll have access to it forever - including upgrades we make in the future. The Challenge is a Sprint, the MasterClass is for the Marathon!

What if my 501(c)3 hasn't accomplished anything yet?

This reminds me of when 16-year old son came to me recently asking, "How can I apply for my first job without any experience?" If your nonprofit is new, or has been dormant, it is even MORE important to take this MasterClass - because one of the primary exercises is creating your "origin story" to help magnetize the right donors to you and your mission. Your "origin story" connects your personal history to the founding of the nonprofit - and validates your future plans in the eyes of your donors, your board, your volunteers and even in you as the Founder! Like getting your first job, donors are willing to take a chance - on YOU. That is why this MasterClass engages you, the Founder, in a transformational process that will positively affect all aspects of running your nonprofit, including fundraising!

Can I raise money before my IRS approval?

100%, yes, absolutely! Whether your nonprofit is still in the idea stage and hasn't filed any paperwork at all, is waiting for IRS approval, or has been around for years and simply needs to develop a more effective fundraising strategy, this MasterClass can work for you. We can break it down this way based upon the stage your organization is at right now:

1) Idea Stage: Many nonprofit founders get to work early, rubbing shoulders with those who they see as potential donors, to sharpen their focus on the programs and presentations that will appeal to financial backers. They obtain commitments before ever starting their nonprofit, and then come out of the gates with a bank roll!

2) Early-Stage: Once you have filed Articles of Incorporation and obtained and EIN, you can open a bank account and offer Tax Deductibility to donors, because the official policy of the IRS is to back-date Tax-Exempt Status to the date of incorporation. So if you incorporated on May 22, 2021, and your IRS approval letter comes in July, that letter will reflect May 22 as your official date of Tax-Exempt Status.

3) Fully IRS approved: Many nonprofits take time to get underway, for a variety of reasons - the founder may work full-time, or have a family, or have personal issues that sideline their charitable work for weeks, months, or even years. That's OK! Every journey has its own path and timeline. And when it's time to rekindle that fire, there's no better way than to go through the processes in this MasterClass to re-align with your original (or updated) mission, put a fresh plan together, and get out into the world and (finally!) answer the call on your heart to make an impact!

What if I've never raised money before?

No experience in fundraising? This may actually be an advantage! While "learning by doing" is essential for many experiences in life, humans tend to become extremely biased by those experiences. Many times, a first experience where dumb luck, pure passion, or an eager donor results in receiving a contribution can cause a person to believe that "what I did worked" and cement poor habits that do not lead to long-term success. Starting with this MasterClass - where you will learn the purpose behind the essential ingredients to a sustainable fundraising strategy - will help prevent you falling into ineffective habits and erroneous assumptions, and will help maximize the long-term return on your investment of blood sweat and tears! There is no "right way" or "wrong way" - but there is a way that is proven to work - because donor behavior is predictable!

How does this compare with your Foundations Fundraising Course?

Great question!  

While this MasterClass will help you create essential Donor Engagement Toolkit assets that will serve your organization across all avenues of fundraising from grants to online and crowdfunding, it is focused on one strategy: Major Gifts.

Major Gifts is in our experience the most effective way to raise significant money int the near--term and is ALSO offers the biggest return on investment when compared with all of the other primary development strategies.

Foundations, on the other hand, is a broader program covering all of the five major fundraising strategies - including Grants, Events, Annual Giving, Bequests, and Major Gifts. While Foundations is an excellent course we wholeheartedly believe in, small- to medium size and early-stage startup founders will experience a greater level of success and raise more money by focusing on ONE strategy early on via the MasterClass, then can "graduate" and make the leap to Foundations as they broaden their horizons into the other development avenues!

Do I need to be "tech-savvy" to take this course?

We have experience training and coaching across a range of "tech-savviness", and are happy to say that this MasterClass is designed for students of all levels of computer proficiency!

Basic computer navigations skills are necessary, as the course does engage via video, Google Docs, MS Word Documents, and/or PDF, and basic Google (or optionally MS Excel) spreadsheets...

...but not to worry...because one of the many enhancements in the MasterClass versus the Major Gifts Challenge is the "101 Tech Training". This is where we show you how to dominate in Google Drive so you can focus on the exercises and build your Donor Engagement assets, create your Donor Prospect List, and manage your Strategic Donor Portfolio.

This bonus training will also benefit you for all time as you learn the powerful (and free) tools that nonprofits and Fortune 500 companies alike are using to stay organized and maximize productivity and collaboration today.

Can I get a tax writeoff or reimbursement for my investment in this MasterClass?

Not only is this course 100% Tax-Deductible (or reimbursable with nonprofit funds raised), but any and all money expended on goods or services for the nonprofit can be written off or recouped on one of these two ways! This is true at ALL STAGES of nonprofit formation.

For example if you expend personal funds to build a website - even if this is prior to creating the nonprofit - the receipt for that expense can be presented to the nonprofit as a liability (where it "owes" you for that expense). Later when tax time comes, you can convert that liability into a donation and write it off your income taxes, or get reimbursed.

Another way this program (or any expenditure) can be coered is to ask a supporter to "sponsor" the MasterClass. They can then write it off as an "in kind" donation - because instead of providing funds to your organization directly, they purchased an item for the purposes of donating it to the organization.

A personal note

The #1 biggest reason I'm so excited to bring this Major Gifts MasterClass to you is because I have personally raised millions using these proven principles and practices - and I want YOU and YOUR mission to succeed!


Your success in Major Gifts fundraising is vitally important to our brothers and sisters in need worldwide, as well as those right in our back yard.


I honor your commitment to learn and grow in pursuit of our shared goals!
