A Confidential Letter to the Overworked, Underpaid Fundraising Professional

Dear Fundraising Superheroine (or superhero),

Have you ever been frustrated by the lack of opportunity for advancement at your nonprofit?

Are you the lone development staff person, but unable to get a change in title?

Would you like to have more recognition for your accomplishments?

Would you like to learn how to write a linkedin profile that has the recruiters beating a path to YOUR door for a change?

You’re here because you know you have a problem. Perhaps your immediate boss doesn’t know how to fundraise and has no interest in learning. Perhaps your board won’t fundraise no matter how much you beg. Perhaps you’re surrounded by a barrage of unrealistic expectations and demands with no way to say STOP!

Does this sound like you?

You are busy, preoccupied with your appeal letter, your event, your grant proposal, managing your interns, and maybe even looking for another job. (Did you know that 18-24 months is the longest that most nonprofit fundraisers stay with an organization?)

I’ve been where you are. And I know what you’re going through.

How can you gently educate your boss and board about what reasonable expectations are? How can you help them get out of the way so you can do your job? How can you create fundraising allies instead of fundraising roadblocks?

For you, dear superhero, I have got a SOLUTION!

Imagine your board members cheering as you enter the room! Imagine celebrating small wins with your boss. Imagine a fat bonus check for you because you made a better-than-ever-before return on your event! But how do you get there?

In this book, you’ll find tips, tricks, and techniques guaranteed to work at your next supervision meeting or next board meeting. Everything from:

  • How to show your measure of success cannot just be dollars raised, and how else to measure what you’re doing, ESPECIALLY if you’re new in your position
  • Ways to communicate with your Executive Director that establish your boundaries and set expectations
  • How to find a better fundraising job
  • How to create a compelling cover letter that gets results
  • The Full Checklist Cheatsheet for your Fundraising Interview!
  • Case studies of how people stepped into leadership roles at nonprofits.
  • How to negotiate for a higher nonprofit salary
  • The Three Conversations you MUST have with your boss to be successful
  • And more!
