What if raising more donations for your nonprofit was simple and fast?
Welcome to a monthly training series helping you raise more money in less time
Fundraising has never been more important or demanded so much courage.
Is this you? You're struggling to get in-person visits with donors. Or get your foot in the door.
You break into a cold sweat thinking about asking donors for money. Your top prospects won't return your emails or phone calls. You aren't sure which donors to focus on or how much you can realistically raise. You've got whiplash from live events going virtual, then back to in-person, and now virtual again.
Your patience for the term "pivot" ran out last year.
Like it or not if you're going to succeed you must:
✓ bravely make your case
✓ strengthen donor relationships
✓ write the best appeals you’ve ever written
✓ zero in on your BEST prospects
✓ solicit the big gifts with confidence
✓ cut through your donor’s crowded inbox to win their hearts, minds & wallets
How will you do it?

1 90-minute live workshop every month, private community, and immediate access to how-to templates, training, and guides to help you raise more money!
October Workshop "Write Better Emails and Appeals"
Is writing a winning fundraising appeal that inspires your donors to give generously (as in "Take my credit card now!") keeping you up at night?
Can't say that I blame you, friend.
Many organizations raise as much as 50% of their individual giving this time of year.
End-of-year fundraising is the most lucrative, high stakes fundraising there is.
With 30% of annual giving happening in December alone, there's a lot of money on the table.
...worried you won’t hit your fundraising goals
...suffering writer's block

Who am I and why should you listen to me?
My name is Rachel Muir and I am just as passionate about making the world a better place as you are.
I’ve started and run my own nonprofit, raised over 10 million and was featured on Oprah, CNN and the Today show.
It took a lot of inspiration and a truck-load of guts to get to where I am today.
I have helped thousands of fundraisers land big gifts, delight their donors, and love their jobs…all because I use proven systems and methods. Because nobody wants theory!
