You’ve started to get prepared in the past, but you always get caught up in 24/7 virtual fires.

Nonprofit Leaders: This is for you if:

  • You are overwhelmed with putting out virtual fires every day instead of focusing on GROWTH for your nonprofit

Freelance Grant Writer & Nonprofit Consultants: This is for you if:

  • You are a consultant and want an easy to learn and easy to customize service to help those nonprofits get more funding
  • You want multiple streams of income
  • You want to learn clear action steps in a simple way that will make you the expert

You May be Struggling with Two Things:

  • How to advance a nonprofit without it taking TONS of time

  • Not knowing exactly ‘what’ to do that will bring the greatest benefits for a nonprofit

And Let’s Face it, Life Gets Crazy

  • If you don’t figure this out, your nonprofit (or the nonprofits you serve) will remain in a frustrating cycle of exhaustion.

  • You will operate on a shoestring budget and remain in lack, never knowing if you can keep on your staff.

  • You will definitely not be able to give consistent pay increases year to year or even (gasp) offer health benefits consistently.

  • Because of this, your well-trained staff may leave your nonprofit at any moment and with them all the institutional knowledge and systems.

  • As a freelance consultant, if you don’t learn strategic planning then it is going to be frustrating when you need to help your clients build internal capacity to increase their grant funding.

  • Plus, you are going to get asked to help with strategic planning.

  • Without knowing (and having the downloadables!) to lead nonprofit’s forward in strategic planning, you are hanging on one stream of income with grant writing.

But the problem is that you don’t really know where to start with strategic planning.

  • You don’t have an agenda with downloadables to lead you through a comprehensive, yet streamlined, system.
  • You don’t have hundreds of hours to learn.
  • You need short tutorials with downloadables that you can accomplish in a day-long retreat or throughout board meetings.

You might be thinking…

  • How does one EVEN start with strategic planning?

  • What is the secret to getting out of 24/7 virtual fires without overwhelm?
  • What is all included in strategic planning?
  • You know your nonprofit (or the nonprofits you work with) can make a steady income (others are doing it, right?) but you have a few hurdles…

You know your nonprofit (or the nonprofits you work with) can make a steady income (others are doing it, right?) but you have a few hurdles…

First, you don’t even know where to start with strategic planning.

Second, even if you download some YouTube videos you are sure what is proven to work.

Third, if you don’t do something you know that nonprofit will just keep spiraling in overwhelm and month to month operating with at any moment threatening to have no income.

What Makes the Nonprofit Strategic Planning Master Course Different?

#1: It is designed for both nonprofit leaders and freelance consultants

How I help nonprofits grow their financial and mission health for their nonprofits can also be how you do it! As a nonprofit leader, you will learn how to facilitate the content from the videos with your team by also have downloadables and excel sheets that everyone can use! This creates natural buy-in from your team.

As a freelance consultant, you can shadow me as I teach nonprofits. You also get the downloadables that you can adapt as your own!

This course will show you how to improve your own nonprofit’s sustainable funding and planning, as well as show you how to help others (and get paid for it!)!

#2: It’s simple

If you have hundreds of hours of content and a 300-page manual, you’re not going to get into it.

If you have a myriad of content you are trying to learn from (i.e. random YouTube videos, downloadables from various sources) you are going to feel disjointed and things (links) are going to get lost.

We need simple tools and methods that do just enough to: a) free up some of our time and b) make sure we get the strategies done!

The Nonprofit Strategic Planning Master Course is a simple system designed to help you actually conduct and implement your strategic planning.

#3: It is a step-by-step plan

I give you everything you need to ensure you increase your ability to get additional streams of income for your nonprofit or your freelance consultancy.

This is not a generic “just ask for more funding” kind of course. I’ve created a systematic plan that will help you stop living in overwhelm, get your planning done in a strategic way, and the efficient and sustainable funding for your nonprofit.

The Nonprofit Strategic Planning Master Course will provide the exact system you can use to get your strategic planning done as soon as possible so you can implement it and increase sustainability for your nonprofit or your consultancy.

Who Else Has this Helped?

However, grants only funded certain projects, and operational costs (including the executive director pay!) were non-existent. Therefore, they hired me to come and implement this strategic planning over a course of two, half-day meetings and several board of director meetings.

Literally, this was done in about 12 hours.

The changes were dynamic and immediate.

  • Firstly, they immediately got to know each other’s intentions with the nonprofit which was enlightening.
  • Secondly, they nailed down their SWOT analysis and realized their mission and vision statement were WAY off course. They redesigned a mission statement and vision statement with buy-in from the entire board and volunteers.
  • Thirdly, they reflected on their resources and target demographic. This was instrumental to then implement goals, objectives, and activities for their annual planning.

This resulted in identifying their resource mapping and within a month securing another grant for a project that actually made sense to their mission (and funded their executive director) and launching a gala which was able to fund additional operational expenses while dramatically increasing their presence in the community.

Within 12 hours (in total), this nonprofit conducted the planning necessary that increased their annual income five-fold within months. That is just the initial response. The indirect effect of building credibility and increasing partners in the community has long-term effects of exponentially increasing income in a sustainable way.

This is not the only example.

Individuals who have taken this course online have also had dramatic effects.

Samantha was a new executive director to a nonprofit who was completely restructuring their branding. She watched the videos and then led weekly meetings with her staff to do the downloadables.

This resulted in a smooth transition to her new branding, increased efficiency in scheduling fundraising and grant deadlines, and buy-in from the community.

She also increased her reputation and capacity as an executive director, gaining respect from her board of directors and from her staff.

How will your Nonprofit Grow?

  • What you want is to increase the effectiveness (and income) of your nonprofit in a sustainable way without it taking hundreds of hours of your (and your staff’s) precious time.

  • You want to have a streamlined system to guide you so you can be an effective facilitator.

  • You want your staff to be happy and to actually earn a living so they stick around and are fulfilled.

  • You never want to miss a grant deadline again.

  • If you are a freelancer, you want to be the golden expert that helps nonprofits reach all the above.

  • You also want an additional stream of income that also helps nonprofits reach their goals.

  • You want to relieve the stress of only relying on grant writing.

What about freelance consultants?

Providing strategic planning for nonprofits has also helped me as a consultant to increase my ability to help nonprofits and my income!

I have been able to conduct both in-person and online training for SO many nonprofits.

This has increased my reputation as a consultant in the community, has helped me guide nonprofits into raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for operational funding, and has given me an additional stream of income when the grant season isn’t as heavy.

How Will This Help You?

Every successful nonprofit organization and freelance grant writer has a system in place.

They have learned to set time aside (and how to set time aside).

They know all their strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. They know how to facilitate effectively. They have resource mapping organized through excel sheets.

They know when and how to increase funding.

They may share some tips with you, but they don’t share the entire system with checklists, downloadables, and step-by-step video tutorials.

I am going to share those with you!
