What is the Fundraising Transformers community?


Fundraising Transformers is a growing community of fundraising pros just like you from around the world. An exclusive community of courageous people who are committed to growing and refining their fundraising skills. Fundraisers who are ready to move up to the next level of fundraising success. 

This is where I teach Mentor members the same strategies I use to lead, train, and coach nonprofit social service organizations, private schools, colleges and universities, and healthcare organizations to collectively raise more than a half-billion dollars, including a single gift of $27.1 million.

This is where I help you strengthen your fundraising skills and build a solid foundation for your fundraising success.

Is a Mentor membership right for you?


Our Mentor members fall into one of two categories: brand new to the fundraising profession and want to build a solid foundation for fundraising success or experienced fundraisers who want to strengthen their fundraising skills to help scale their fundraising program to new heights.

Here’s what we know to be true:

The pressure on fundraisers has never been greater.

You're charged with raising even MORE money during these challenging and disruptive times.

It can feel overwhelming – and frustrating – when trying to raise MORE money with the same ol fundraising plan – or LACK thereof. 

Then there's the matter of how to improve your donor retention rate.

And how to get meetings with elusive donors.

To make matters worse, you don't have leadership and board alignment on development priorities, let alone a clear path to achieve your fundraising goals.

And while not enough board members are engaged in your fundraising efforts – they still expect you to somehow improve your fundraising results.

You're feeling stuck. I get it.

The good news is you don't have to go it alone. I can help you get unstuck.

The bottom line:

If you want to strengthen your skills and build a solid foundation for fundraising success, then joining my Fundraising Transformers community as a Mentor member is a great first step.

When you're ready to take your fundraising results to the next level, you can upgrade to our Growth membership. Where you can attend all LIVE CFRE-approved fundraising training and coaching sessions with Tammy Zonker and occasional fundraising guest experts twice each month.
