What will the Nonprofit Leadership Summit do for you?

Well, are you craving more major donors?

Who isn't? Jeff Schreifels, author of "It's Not JUST About the Money" will share his secrets on major donor cultivation in this summit. 

Do you want to get 50 new monthly donors? 

Erica Waasdorp, author of "Monthly Giving the Sleeping Giant" (and raiser of $18M in monthly gifts) will teach you how to get those next 50 monthly donors. 

Do you need better board members?

Andy Robinson, 30 year veteran board trainer (and author) will help you get your board engaged. 

Do you want to motivate your staff more effectively?

Kishshana Palmer, MBA, BoardSource certified trainer, has personally taken teams from blah to outstanding in a matter of months, and she will show you how it's done. 

How about a new building?

Andrea Kihlstedt, author of "Capital Campaigns" (now in its 4th edition) is going to teach you about how to start your capital campaign off right.  

You know you need to make a plan around all of this. 

BUT, you don't have a lot of money and you CERTAINLY don't have a lot of time. 

This is where we come in. 

We listened to your feedback and advice over this past year. Because you asked for it, we are bringing together the best of the best of national nonprofit trainers, authors and teachers.

Our speakers will help give you the training you need to succeed in growing your nonprofit in 2017. 
BUT you've got to act fast.

We have only 100 seats left at this nonprofit leadership summit.

We're keeping it small to make sure we give each attendee personal attention.

Normally each one of these presentations is $197 per person, so if you had to pay for all of these webinars separately, you'd pay over $2,000!  

Our investment is $597. To make it easier to afford, you can also do a payment plan of $207 for 3 months. 

This is such a ridiculous deal for three full days of presentations and 19 CFRE credits. 

And you will learn so much that you can instantly apply to your fundraising, and get a 500% return on investment. 

Take advantage of this incredible deal and act now!

Convince Your Boss

You want to go-but not sure if your boss will let you? Your boss should let you go to this summit. Here's a template email for you to edit. 

Dear [Boss],

Remember how we wanted to get more [monthly donors, major donors, sponsorships, capital campaign support] this year?

I'd like to learn how to fundraise more effectively. Luckily, there's this nonprofit leadership summit coming up September 27, 28 and 29th where I can learn how to do it.

AND Good news: It's online! That means no airfare, meals, or hotel to pay for. SCORE!

Even more good news: It's got sessions from Andrea Kihlstedt, who wrote the textbook on Capital Campaigns. I can ask her about our capital campaign strategy.

Plus it's got sessions from Erica Waasdorp, who has raised over $18M with monthly giving, and Jeff Schreifels, co-founder of the Veritus Group, who has helped nonprofits get millions from major donors.

It's $597 until September 29th, (or we can make 3 monthly payments of $207). This summit could really help us succeed in so many areas, and it won't require me to be out of the office. Plus it will all be recorded, so I can watch the sessions over and over again.

So what do you say? Shall we do this?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

[Your Name Goes Here]

P.S. We've got to hurry-the summit starts September 27th-right around the corner. I'd love to help us get more fundraising income in 2017 and this summit will help!
