Let’s work together!

I have been building fundraising programs since 1999 and have a lot of stories to tell. I underpin those stories with practical examples and research to ensure that all sessions are practically useful for YOU.

Whether it is a day in house with your team or a room of hundreds at your next conference, I excel at creating custom sessions to fit all budgets and venues. My workshops are always tailored to your unique needs.

Here are a few examples of topics I’ve covered:

The Authentic Fundraiser: How to stop using archaic sales techniques to raise money

Your donors are sophisticated, passionate about your cause and sincerely want to make a difference. You don’t have to “sell” them anything. Gone are the days of needing to master the art of persuading donors to give to your charity. Donors are looking for sincere, real, authentic people to help them have social impact. This session will explore how being authentic, honest, true to yourself and your organization is the only edge you need to raise more money for your organization’s mission.

As a result of this workshop, participants will:

  1. Learn how authenticity manifests itself in the development office and why it is important.
  2. Implement key practices to live an authentic life
  3. Be able to articulate the passion that drives daily interactions with colleagues, staff and donors

Shaking the tree: Five ways to jumpstart your legacy program

Are you avoiding your Planned Giving program because you think you don’t know enough? Do you want to reveal legacy prospects in your donor file but you just aren’t sure how to start? By sharing a true case study of how her program went from zero to 43 confirmed bequests in just eight months Kimberley will provide you with some concrete actions you can take today to boost your Planned Giving program.

Go ahead – tell your board they don’t have to ask for money!

How to create the systemic culture change required so that philanthropy can thrive.

Building a culture of philanthropy is the new buzz phrase for charities. Have you ever thought about what that actually means? This session provides practical strategies and tactics to enable you to lead your board, staff and volunteers through the changes necessary to raise more money for your programs.

Five essentials for building a robust fundraising program.

In a world of limited resources and a shrinking donor base where exactly should you be focusing your time and energy to build a robust and sustainable fundraising program? With so many priorities competing for your time how can you possibly do it all? The answers may be simpler than you think.

Let’s start a conversation about what your needs are. I’d love to hear from you.
