Are you stressed that the work never seems to be done?
Consider this. 
Dear Nonprofit Leader,

Why does it feel like the work will never be done? 

Have you ever asked yourself, am I truly setting up my nonprofit for success?

My name is Mazarine Treyz, the founder of the Nonprofit Leadership Summit. I've worked with lots of nonprofits over the last 10+ years in the sector, and three things I've noticed that makes us inefficient and ineffective are; 1. how often we take on too much work, 2. how we depend too much on one income stream, and 3. how we lose our fundraising staff over and over. Does this sound like you?

According to leadership expert Noel Tischy, author of The Leadership Engine


"Winning organizations are teaching organizations. 

That means they win because they nurture the development of leaders at all levels. 

The ultimate test for a leader is not whether you can make smart decisions now, but whether you can build an organization that can sustain success even when you're not around." 

Bottom line: The key ability of winning organizations and leaders is CREATING leaders.


When you feel like the work will never be done, it's often because you don't have the revenue to hire, or haven't nurtured leaders within your organization to take on this work.
 
If you're not yet thinking about how to grow or create leaders within your organization, we can help you do just that. 

You and your team should attend the Nonprofit Leadership Summit to look at not just - how can I do my job today-but- what could I be doing? What are the best opportunities?

It's NEVER too late to start nurturing leaders.

YES when you register, you can bring your team! We would love to have you in this second year of our summit. As you can see from the comments of previous leaders, we can help you plan to succeed in 2018.

Attending this event with your team means you can teach them to succeed in fundraising planning, communicating with supporters, board member fundraising, building your donor pipeline, keeping monthly donors, and more. 

It's NEVER to late to start improving your leadership skills.

​​​​​​​Join us at the Nonprofit Leadership Summit, and even if you are a one person shop, we will help you hire your fundraising staff right the first time, get clear on what tasks you can do to truly grow your organization, and more. 

See you inside, 
​​​​​​​

What's our track record?
Will we help you get CONCRETE results because you attended the Nonprofit Leadership Summit? Read what some students have said below.

I loved every single session; so much information and value. This by far the most exciting and fulfilling summit I have ever done. I feel I understand my role a little more as a board member but also realize the importance of fundraising and having a decided plan to move forward. Many thanks to all presenters. This was so worth it.

-Diane Hayes, Secretary Board of Directors

Breast Cancer Action Ottawa, Canada

I was impressed with the enthusiasm in the Nonprofit Leadership Summit presenters voices! They were able to keep me engaged and present! Their great enthusiasm inspired me to take action.

-Judy Rouse, Executive Director, The Life Center of Midland, Midland, Texas

Andy Robinson provided tools that I think are invaluable and I cannot wait to bring this to our Board's sustainability group. Kishshana Palmer was a rockstar! Super engaging and a ton of great information to take in. Mazarine is just fabulous! I've seen some of the tools she showed before, but it was a kick to start really using these tools to streamline my everyday crazy schedule and really decide what was priority.

Some of this will (hopefully) help me really push our organization to developing a strong donor base that has been such a huge missed opportunity!

8:00AM - 9:00AM (PST)
During this uncertain time, with cuts in government funding, and a gloomy outlook from our donors, how can we respond to the changes that must be made if we are to survive? In a time of "fake news" how can we build trust? What can we do to come together, and not just survive, but thrive during the next several years? What can we take moving forward to survive this change?

In this session you'll learn:

The surprising way you're losing money right now-
Making partnerships during times of change
Tons of ways to get free or cheap things for your nonprofit
Mastering supporter connections in person for your cause

Monday, September 18, 2017
9:30AM - 10:30AM (PST)

Making organizational decisions during difficult economic and political times can feel like trying to run uphill on a slippery slope. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

In this session you'll learn:

► What: Define scenario planning and contingency planning;
► Why: Define situations when this model is best employed;
► When: Sharing thoughts around time necessary for planning;
► Who: Involving stakeholders-with a case study;
► How: Explore process; with another case study;

Take Fundraising Out of the Box!
Monday, September 18, 2017
12:00PM - 1:15PM (PST)

ssme
In this workshop, we’ll discuss how productivity has a profound impact on YOUR nonprofit’s ability to thrive, or even simply survive. The issue is particularly pertinent as government sources of income are drying up.  

Ever since 2011, we’ve been studying staff fundraising productivity, and the results are disappointing. With over 1,250 responses from organizations all over the world, in every sector, size of fundraising shop, and level of income, 78% score at around a D-plus.

Ellen Bristol, developer of Fundraising the SMART Way™ and the Leaky Bucket Assessment for Effective Fundraising, will discuss how and why it’s time to take fundraising out of its traditional “box,” a self-limiting notion which associates income generation, a strategic business function, with a narrowly defined set of tactics (events, grants, annual appeals, and the like). She will discuss how and why nonprofits should consider funding their operations, where funding has a capital “F.”

Attendees will learn why they should: 


► Introduce innovative management practices,
Utilize effective research, and
► Engage useful technology to collate, analyze and interpret performance
Adopt the continuous-improvement model to fundraising
► Look at productivity measures to get exponential fundraising results

Attendees are encouraged to take the Leaky Bucket assessment before the session to see how they score.

Marketing and Fundraising-Together at Last!

Monday, September 18, 2017
2:00PM - 3:15PM (PST)

Effective marketing gets folks' attention.  Effective fundraising keeps it. They need to stick together and stop working at cross purposes.  If marketers get the attention of the wrong folks, or use the wrong methodology, then fundraisers can't do their job.  Too often, the stated objectives of "marketing" are fuzzy. Like “raise awareness,” “engage,” “involve,” and “empower.” These are passive acts and, ultimately, often useless ones. In fact, marketing can actually suppress fundraising if philanthropic savvy is not built into the equation.

What’s the leadership fix? Focusing on ACTIONS that get you to your goals. In this session we’ll explore leading with the "Voice of the Consumer" to assure you (1) reach the people most likely to ensure your success, (2) offer content that meets their needs, and (3) call for the actions required to move your mission forward.

YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO:

►  Assure fundraising is seen as a mission-focused function, rather than a support function
►  Move from "vanity" or "checklist" marketing to "transformative marketing"
​​​​​​►  ​Get clarity on marketing and fundraising goals to facilitate philanthropy
►  Integrate marketing and fundraising so staff are steering the boat in the same direction
►  Call for actions that will move your mission forward
►  Offer supporters value in exchange for the value they provide

Mobilize Your Board to Raise More Money
Wednesday, September 20, 2017
8:30AM - 9:45PM (PST)

If your board isn’t raising all the money it could — indeed, if your board isn’t raising any money at all — you’re not alone. In this session, we’ll discuss the reasons why, and outline strategies to turn things around. You’ll leave with several practical, specific ideas for increasing board involvement and effectiveness.

► Redefining fundraising: It’s not just asking for money
► Using challenge gifts to shift board behavior
► Building a board fundraising menu
►  Helping board members take leadership and hold each other accountable

Wednesday, September 20, 2017
12:00PM - 1:15PM (PST)

 There are so many benefits that can result from cross-sector partnerships. Nonprofits can go beyond sponsorship to create innovative partnerships that can serve a mission purpoes.

Inc, in 2009, to help single parents finish college in the greater Atlanta Georgia area. She attributes their 70% program success rate to having a steady stream of monthly giving that she can rely on as her programs expand.

With grassroots methods, Ms Pierce-Lewis came to get and keep monthly donors that now get her nonprofit thousands of dollars every year. Her  monthly giver retention rate is 80%. How does she do it?

If you join us in this session, you'll find how she took her grassroots nonprofit from depending on events-to thriving with monthly giving-and how she keeps her monthly givers to this day.

You will discover:

► Key elements of her monthly giving marketing strategy
► Clear examples of what to do and what not to do in monthly giving
► Beautifully meaningful thank you notes-and how she gets participants to write them

► Checklists for successful monthly giving and speaking

How to hire your staff right the first time
Friday, September 22, 2017
12:00PM - 1:15PM (PST)

Critical steps you need to take once the candidate says "Yes!"
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​On-boarding tools and tricks so you rockstars sticks with you 



Jeff Schreifels
You Can Help Your Board be Great at Major Gift Fundraising
Friday, September 22, 2017
2:00PM - 3:15PM (PST)

Do you and your colleagues talk about how bad your board is at helping you fundraise? Do you wonder why they aren’t motivated to ask their associates and friends to support your organization? Do you wish you could remove half of your board today and replace them with energized, passionate people who will do anything to help your organization succeed?

Perhaps it’s not your board that is the problem. Maybe it’s you.

Because at the same time I hear board members saying things like; “I have no idea what my role is on the board.” “I’m not sure what the expectation is around fundraising.” “I don’t know how to ask for a gift but I’m expected to bring in $10,000 a year...if I don’t, I feel like a failure.” “All I do is come to meetings and I don’t know what good I’m doing.”

I hear non-profit leaders trash-talk their “do-nothing” board over and over. But, what I’ve come to believe is that many non-profits do a terrible job of recruiting, inspiring, educating, and training, leading and supporting their boards.

If you seek proactive fundraising and leadership from your board, you need to show them how to do it.

Attendees will learn the answers to these questions:
What are the expectations for each board member?
What is it you really want a particular board member to do?
Why do you want that board member?
How are you going to communicate to that board member between meetings?
► What will you do to ensure that a board member is successful?

Great boards are made because non-profits are helping them be successful. The relationship with your board is a two-way street. You help them, they help you.

Intrigued? Jeff Schreifels, Senior Partner at Veritus Group will lead you in a one-hour workshop that will inspire you to inspire your board and lead it to success. Come join us.

What people say about The Nonprofit Leadership Summit

Thanks to all for re-igniting my inner fire that had dampened a little. I am re-energized and cannot wait to implement the plans I have for 2017.

-Leslie Clay, Chief Development Officer, Hope Cottage, Dallas, TX

Mazarine, YOU ARE AMAZING. This was such an intense undertaking and it was phenomenally helpful. The fundraising plan guide that you provided in advance came at the perfect time and was so incredibly helpful. I implemented it and our board was so impressed at the board meeting. I am new to this position (with the organization and also development in general) and I am so thankful for the value you provided through your presentations and the presentations you coordinated. I'm glad I've attended and can't wait to catch up on the sessions I wasn't able to attend!

-Carrie Scott, Development Director, Rising Star Outreach, Provo, UT

All the presentations at the Nonprofit Leadership Summit were great. I believe my fundraising will be most impacted by the major gifts strategies I learned in Jeff's presentation.

-Valerie Richardson, Director of Foundation and Development, Springfield Green Library Foundation, Springfield, MO

4 Reasons to Attend
The Nonprofit Leadership Summit

Reason 1: You want to get tons of monthly donors and keep them.


In times of great change, monthly givers can see us through when major donors drop away. Erica Waasdorp, author of "Monthly Giving the Sleeping Giant" (and raiser of $18M in monthly gifts) will teach you how to get monthly givers, NOW! Kenita Pierce-Lewis, CEO and Founder of HOPE Inc, will share a case study of how she started and grew her monthly giving program from scratch. 

Reason 2: You need more board members fundraising actively for you


Andy Robinson, author of "Training Your Board (and Everyone Else) How to Fundraise" who is 30 year veteran board trainer will help you get your board ready to fundraise. Jeff Schreifels, Senior Partner at Veritus Group (And co-author of "It's Not Just About the Money") will help you get your board members excited and motivated to get major gifts for you.

Reason 3: Government funding is cut and you need a Plan B


Is funding growing to be a struggle? Or is there a dramatically increased need for services right now? Eric Anderson of The Healthy Nonprofit will show you what to do when funding gets cut-how to cope and not just make a plan B, but a plan C and D as well.

Reason 4: You want to save $200,000 a year 
 

Did you know that each time you lose a fundraiser, your nonprofit loses roughly $200,000 in retraining, donor relationships, and more? Wouldn't it be easier to hire the right person the first time? Kishshana Palmer, MBA, former VP of External Affairs for FoodCorps, a national nonprofit, has done hiring and firing and personally taken fundraising teams from blah to outstanding in a matter of months, and she will show you how to hire right.

Dear [Boss],

Remember how we wanted to get more [monthly donors,  sponsorships, board fundraising support] this year?

I'd like to learn how to fundraise more effectively. Luckily, there's this nonprofit leadership summit coming up September 18, 20 and 22nd 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 Bruce Burtch, the Father of Cause marketing, on how to create better partnerships, 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 August 30th. 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 18th-right around the corner. I'd love to help us get more fundraising income in 2018 and this summit will help!
