John has fundamentally shifted the way my ministry views fundraising! I serve as the ED for a small Christian ministry with only a $45,000 budget. Our ministry did not have the funding to hire a Development Director, so our Board concluded that it would be a far more manageable investment for us to enlist the help of a fundraising strategist who could equip me to effectively wear the Development Director “hat” during this season.
What was once a daunting and intimidating chore for me is now a feasible and, even, enjoyable exercise in interpersonal relationship building. John has taught me strategies for building relationships with my most important teammates; my donors. His strategies resulted in a far more broad-reaching, comprehensive impact than merely an increase in donations (although that was certainly a result). We experienced an increase in volunteerism, board participation, deepened relationships, increased involvement from donors, and heightened awareness of our mission within our community.
This coaching ended up being the most valuable investment our Board has made since the inception of our ministry. If you are a small nonprofit who feels stuck and overwhelmed, working with John will be the catalyst that will propel you to that next level.
