Our promise

 

We will strive to create relevant products, services, and training to help amazing fundraising pros like you overcome difficult challenges to achieve next-level fundraising success.

Who we are.

We're your strategic fundraising partner. We work with people who want to make a difference: shelter the homeless, feed the hungry, stop abuse, eradicate poverty, make education and quality healthcare available to all, and help children heal, grow, and thrive.

In partnership with you, we clarify the fundamentals—who you are, what you do, why it matters, and how others can help fulfill your mission.

We equip and empower your staff, board, and volunteers to transform your fundraising so you can transform the world.

 Our vision.

A world in which every basic and human need to survive and thrive is fulfilled.

Our mission.

To help fundraisers everywhere transform their fundraising so they can transform the world.

Our core values.

Do the right thing, always. We care about our people, our clients and our partners. We act with uncompromising honesty, accountability, and integrity in everything we do.  

When you succeed, we succeed. We create innovative products and services to help you solve those fundraising challenges keeping you awake at night, and achieve next-level fundraising results. Your success is our priority.

What we believe.

We believe when working together, we can transform the future.

 

We’re firmly committed to the ideal that “a rising tide lifts all boats.” 

We believe there is an urgent need for fundraisers everywhere to work together towards a transformed and sustainable future. 

We believe what’s good for fundraising professionals and the organizations they represent is good for those they serve.

The way we practice our commitment to these beliefs is by giving away Honorary Growth Memberships to nonprofit fundraising professionals who have been furloughed or laid off. Hardworking, big-hearted fundraising pros who find themselves in the employment gap. 

While we initiated our Honorary Growth Membership program in response to the onset of the pandemic, we received so many applications and messages of gratitude from fundraising pros that we decided to make the program a permanent offering. Using our membership community to lift all fundraisers.

But, we don’t do this alone. Each member of our Fundraising Transformers community helps make our Honorary Growth Membership Program possible. And as our membership community grows, so does the number of honorary memberships granted. Your membership helps us all keep moving forward together.

Why we do this work.

Our ultimate goal is to help you succeed with your mission — changing the lives of those you serve for the better. For us, there is no greater return. Watch Tammy's video to see what we mean.

 

Our clients.

We’ve had the honor and privilege of leading, training and coaching some of the most amazing nonprofit social service organizations, private schools, colleges and universities, and healthcare organizations to raise more than a half billion dollars, including a single gift of $27.1M. Helping them transform their fundraising so they can transform the world.

Our team.

Our award-winning principals have been recognized for excellence by their clients, peers and served as guest speakers all over the world. We bring to your organization an incredibly talented and amazing team of experts. A team who is immensely passionate and highly committed to doing great work for great organizations.
