WHAT JH NONPROFITS SAID AFTER THIS INTENSIVE IN SPRING 2021:
“As a young org without a fundraising strategy, this program was a gamechanger.” – Anonymous
“Seed was amazingly helpful in establishing useful development frameworks that can help me and my organization set strategic priorities for our limited resources. I have strong confidence that the return on this time and money investment will be significant.” -Ethan Lobdell, Executive Director, Jackson Hole Children’s Museum
“Phenomenal course! Very organized and helped our organization think about simplifying our fundraising strategy.” -Anonymous
“The Seed Fundraising Intensive and Major Giving Intensive courses provided our organization the opportunity to pause and look at our fundraising strategy and how we can improve, but not expand our efforts. In both courses, we took a deep dive into our organization’s mission and learned realistic fundraising strategies that kept in mind the limited capacity of staff in the nonprofit sector. Hillary was wonderful to work with and always available for questions specific to our organization.” – Brittney Ziebell, Jackson Hole Ski & Snowboard Club Development Director
Seed’s Intensives are cohort-based accelerators designed to equip leaders with the thinking, tools, and relationships necessary to build a sustainable, scalable fundraising operation. The Strategic Focus Intensive is a 12-hour learning experience designed to equip leaders with a fresh strategic lens for your organization’s fundraising operation. Through transformative content and a mentor-driven process, you will critically evaluate the viability of five fundraising strategies resulting in a strategic roadmap. You will round out the roadmap with an infrastructure plan to identify the budget, staffing, tools, and systems needed to establish a scalable fundraising operation.
Fully operationalizing one to two fundraising strategies will have a bigger return than maintaining three to five strategies at a mediocre level. The activity you say “no” can only strengthen you. Through teaching, peer-review workshops, and guest speaker case studies, we will equip you to evaluate the viability of each strategy as if you were your own consultant. You will consider each strategy through a matrix that ranks: sustainability, return on investment, return horizon, scalability, and needed infrastructure.

THIS PROGRAM IS DESIGNED FOR:
– Leaders of small to mid-sized nonprofits who need a high value, quick return, experience that delivers them to a sense of clarity on a critical pain point: their organization’s fundraising strategies are unpredictable, expensive, and sometimes scattershot.
– Leaders who often feel lonely and exhausted on the difficult path towards sustainability and scale.
– Leaders who need to scale beyond the fundraising efforts of the organization’s Executive Director.
– Leaders who are considering the economic impact of the pandemic and looking for a trusted guide to ensure that their strategic decisions are sound.
– Leaders who wish to work alongside a team of strategists and peers to create a plan that will create stability and allow them to scale.
