I’m Mazarine Treyz - nationally-recognized strategist for fundraising, asking for more and post-capitalist futures, speaker and best selling author, and founder of Wild Woman Fundraising.
In the past decade, I’ve raised millions of dollars for small, national, and international charities via grants, events, sponsorships, crowdfunding, and appeals. Read more about me here.
The past 24 months have been rough.
We are all navigating loss on multiple levels - loss of loved ones, loss of community, loss of support. Loss of donors. Loss of trust and faith in the sector and the very systems we have been working to create.
This is why I created the Asking for More Mastermind: to hold our vision steady as we re-focus and reimagine what our world can look like moving forward.
Part asking school, part online community - the Asking for More Mastermind is a crucible to hold us accountable, supported, and rooted in our deepest, heartfelt joy.
Together we will dream, then plan & create a new world into being. Click here to jump in!
“Thanks to this online community & Mazarine’s guidance, I took my charter school from raising $10K to raising $170K annually with monthly gifts.”
