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.
Your board is full of "idea fairies" and your patience for them 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?

September Workshop: End of Year Fundraising
Does the term "end-of-year fundraising" make your armpits sweat?
Can't say that I blame you.
Many organizations raise 30%, sometimes as high as 50% of their individual giving in December.
It’s 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?
Asking yourself how on earth you’ll do it all?
If you're stressed and overwhelmed, let me show you where to start.
There's so much you can do now to write a money-raising end-of-year fundraising appeal!
End of year is your single BIGGEST fundraising opportunity.
I’ll be making yours a walk in the park, like I did for Chelsea Ingram who said:
“Your template COMPLETELY transformed our end-of-year campaign and made my life 1000% easier!”
WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:
What to write in your end-of-year appeal to raise more money
How to format and design your appeal to get better results
A step-by-step guide to developing your appeal
WHAT YOU'LL GET:
- A swipe file of before/after direct mail and email appeal makeovers

Join me at 11 am CST /12 noon EST on Thursday, September 21 to make your end of year epic.

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!

Rachel is very good at keeping my attention, explaining things and remaining patient. She’s high energy, on the cutting edge of technologies that can be used for giving, and gives great take-away (downloadable) content!
