This fall is going to be one of the most challenging falls in our lifetime.

But it can also be your best.

The pandemic has put incredible pressures on nonprofits. Your mission is needed more than ever. Your board is stressed. And, honestly, so are you. The traditional ways of meeting your donors and having fundraising events has completely changed! But you are needing to raise enough money to keep your staff employed and continue carrying out your mission!

All that pressure can be isolating. But you don’t have to go through this alone.

Join the exclusive Fall Fundraising Cohort is an exclusive group of nonprofit leaders and fundraisers who are working to move successfully through this fall. Led by Fundraising Coach Marc A. Pitman, this group of no more than 10 leaders and fundraisers will learn how to fundraise in a recession. In a pandemic. Marc’s successfully asked for money – and received it – during each of the last four recessions. More importantly, since the pandemic started he’s helped thousands of nonprofit raise money in ways that their donors are thanking them! Two clients even went from no previous Spring fundraising to appeals that led to over $100,000 raised in two weeks.

Marc knows how to how to build relationships and raise money in any economy. And if you get to be one of the 10, he’ll be helping you do that too.

You Don’t Have To Be Alone

As part of this small group, you’ll learn from the best research, from Marc and his experience helping people over 25 years and now, and from your other group members.

In these three months, you’ll

  • Get your head in the game for fundraising – and have donors thanking you for letting them give
  • Create an appeal that speaks to both the pandemic and to your mission – while raising unrestricted money
  • Ask for major gifts – and get a system for organizing these important relationships
  • Tell your nonprofit’s story in ways that will motivate donors – motivate some to even give multiple times this fall
  • Thank donors in ways that grow these relationships – and help them know the importance of their gift
  • Fundraise for your events even if they’ve had to go virtual – and learn the strategies to help you go over goal even if you never meet in person

“I’m very grateful for Marc’s coaching. He helped me understand effective fundraising for the first time. In each conversation he offered current information, described best practices in detail, and gave sound advice for next steps I could immediately take to build meaningful donor and client relations. He helped identify new opportunities and, at one point, challenged me to ask for four times the amount we first thought . . . and we got it! I wish I had known five years ago all I’ve learned in the last year.”

“I love working with Marc! He is a down-to-earth leader and coach who makes the mountains seem like hills – or he trains you to become a mountain climber… The coaching was a professional treat to myself – that was worth every minute and penny spent on it.”
