For Nonprofits

Compelling Vision

Nothing matters more than a compelling vision that highlights the problem you tackle as solved. Having a compelling vision makes your organization "visionary."


Your digital platform establishes your legitimacy to the world. Without legitimacy, you will never see your mission fully funded.

Attractive Expert

The best way to get the money your nonprofit needs is to "attract" it. Become the attractive expert who solves injustice, rights wrongs, and leaves the world in a better place.

Donor's Journey

Have an intentional plan to draw potential donors into a relational journey with you, upgrade their gifts, give their time and leave you a bequest in their estate plan.


Relationships are rocketships! Be strategic about leveraging your donor's influence in inviting others to join your mission.

Stop merely hearing about effective fundraising and begin to experience effective fundraising. With the internet, you have all the fundraising information you need. Actually, you are drowning in a sea of fundraising information. 

In the Minor Touches To Major Impact Fundraising Accelerator you will experience transformation rather than hear more information. The Accelerator is an experience with a personal coach who has been where you are and understands what you are feeling. It is also the experience of a community of fundraisers who are committed to helping each other.

Fundraising information is everywhere.

Fundraising transformation is scarce.

Too many people have information about fundraising.

Not enough people experience the joy of fundraising.

Too many people know that fundraising is true.

Not enough people experience fundraising as joyfully transformational.

Fundraisers are hungry for true community, deeper experiences and authentic transcendence with other fundraisers.

Fundraisers want the experience of engaging more than just their heads, they want to belong to a community that also engages their hearts and relationship.

Fundraisers don't want to know what is true about fundraising, they want to know that is real. What is real is deeper than ideas and information - it is a deeply moving experience.

Fundraisers are looking for something bigger than themselves, they are looking for the divine. They are looking for Providence.

Fundraisers are looking for something only described as you just had to be there!

As fundraisers consume more and more content it is leaving them hungry for greater community, greater experience, and greater transcendence. They want to move from anonymity to belonging. They want more than their head engaged with information, they want their heart engaged.

The Minor Touches To Major Impact Fundraising Accelerator aims to engage the fundraiser's soul in community, not just the head with information. 

What engages fundraisers in the group? PASSION! The whole group burns with passion to see our world changed for the better. Authenticity and passion inside the group releases fundraisers to a new level of performance. 

Go From Fundraising Information To Fundraising Transformation

Fundraising based on storytelling and saying 'thank-you' is not hard.  It is actually fun!

Every week I send my latest insights and helpful tools to my private email list.  Fundraisers tell me they have used it to get them more money.
