What's our track record?
 
Read what past attendees have said below.

"I landed a better job with a foundation at a 42% pay increase! They asked for a minimum salary requirements and current salary. Because my current salary was under market I let them know the number was a combination of salary and benefits. I used the language from the Fundraising Career Conference and named my minimum amount. I was able to increase my salary by 42% when I received the offer!

I am happy to say I'm now working for a  Foundation at a major Hospital. I'm in my first month on the job and it's going well!"

-Natalie Ramos, Chicago, IL

“I normally don't send emails like this, but I wanted to let you know that the resources from the Fundraising Career Conference work!

I used your cover letter template to apply for a job, and less than 24 hours after submitting, I was contacted by a recruiter.  He told me,

"You don't technically have the experience, and this is a stretch position, but your cover letter was amazing and it read like a perfect fit for this job, so I am forwarding you up to the hiring manager.

-Anonymous

"I attended your Virtual Fundraising Career Conference in 2015 and utilized what I had learned to apply, interview and negotiate my salary for my new role as Special Events Coordinator!

Thanks for everything, this conference is a valued resource to fundraisers everywhere!”

My Story


Did you ever have a workplace that just didn't seem to care about promoting you?

Have you ever wanted to have more people help you move up in your career?

Well, me too.  When I worked full time at small nonprofits, it was difficult to get ahead. There was always a crisis, always a reason to run around, and never any time to think of professional development.

I looked around and I had no idea what to do to get a new, better, fantastic job. I started researching how people got their nonprofit jobs. I put together two career fairs. I talked with booth vendors. I talked with fair attendees. I put together a nonprofit job club. I got speakers who were executive directors, chief development officers, consultants, and founders.

People started to come to me to have me help them with their cover letters, their resumes, their interviews, and more. Suddenly I had success stories. Recently a person joined my meetup in Portland, then she bought my career book, and a week later she left the meetup, because she had used my techniques, found the job she wanted in Colorado, and gotten the position. That made me so proud.  

I want to help you get the job of your dreams.

Whether you dream of being an executive director, development director, chief development officer, or simply dream of working in a workplace where everyone respects fundraising and helps to fundraise, this conference is for you. 

In the last two years we've had over 900 people sign up for this conference, and they have gotten real results. (See some of the comments on this page.) Now that we're in our third year, we're going to go even DEEPER with you. Sure, you can learn about cover letters and resumes, but what about career pathing? How about what recruiters really want to see? How about renewal through creativity and play? It's all in here.

I hope you will join us. It's gonna rock!

"I have used your invaluable information over and over again. It has been hugely helpful in pushing my candidacy for several jobs I never thought I could get near. Thank you!!!

Because of your fundraising career advice, this year, I’ve moved from a behind-the-scenes admin assistant in a planned giving office at a private college, to a front-line mid-level fundraiser at a small non-profit, focused on strengthening local farms in our region. Thank you for your work – it certainly played a role in me believing I could get here.

What Recruiters Want and How Fundraisers Can Work With Them Effectively
Wednesday, April 19, 2017
10:00AM - 11:15AM (PST) (1PM ET)

The days when recruiters only worked with senior fundraising executives are over. Now organizations are engaging the services of search firms for mid-level and sometimes even for junior roles because they want to have a proactive recruitment approach and reach candidates who are not actively looking.

In this session we will discuss what recruiters are looking for in fundraisers, what fundraisers can do to get noticed by recruiters, and how fundraisers and recruiters can effectively work together.

Learning Outcomes

-- Characteristics recruiters look for in a fundraiser
--The role of a recruiter
--The role of the candidate
--How to work together effectively



Sheena Greer
Creativity and Play (and how it helps you at work)
Wednesday, April 19, 2017
12:00PM - 1:15PM (PST) (3PM ET)

Play and creative thinking are critical skills for a sector that faces multiple challenges. Yet "innovation" feels like a mouthful and somehow beyond the grasp of everyday people who are trying to make their fundraising efforts more successful. Creativity is no longer a “nice to have” soft skill, but a survival skill. If we are going to change the world, we need a fresh perspective on the problems we face.

In this session, participants will:  

- Discover what creative play is (and isn't)

- Learn how creative play changes one's approach to work, life, and problem solving

- See examples of how play helped change organisation's fundraising and culture

- Receive ready-to-use exercises to help "find your play" and gain fresh perspective

Play will change your approach to problems and give you more tools to solve them. Play will increase your effectiveness and improve your performance. Play will change your workplace culture and help to align your team. Play will open up your life – to fun, to new experiences, to enjoyment!

If your belly fire could use some fuel, this is the session for you. 



Marc Pitman and Mazarine Treyz
The invisible thing that holds you back in your career
Wednesday, April 19, 2017
02:00PM - 03:15PM (PST) (5PM ET)

The stats for our fundraising profession are abysmal. Most people don't stay after 18 months. Why is that?

According to the Underdeveloped Report by Compasspoint, many development staff leave because they do not get along with their boss.

How can you get along better with your boss? You must build trust, deliberately. Not just assume trust will happen but intentionally​ build it. In this session, we'll talk about exactly how to build trust and make your fundraising office even more effective. You'll learn:

-- The Cost of not building trust in our organizations
​​​​​​-- ​How to build credibility-even with yourself!
​​​​​​​-- 10 ways to build trust at work
-- 3 Key elements of Trust
-- 7 Phrases to set expectations and more!

​This session is perfect for executive directors too. Building trust ideally is a 2-way relationship. And your revenue stream is worth figuring this piece out.

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

-----------------------------------------
Dear [Boss],

Remember how I wanted a bigger professional development budget this year?

I'd like to learn how to be a better fundraising professional. Luckily, there's this fundraising career conference coming up for 3 days in April 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!

Most fundraising conferences don't have sessions on careers, or if they do, they might have just one session. This conference has 9 sessions on careers, and it will help me be a better professional.

Even more good news: It's got sessions from Marc Pitman, author of Ask without Fear, Claire Axelrad of Clairifiation and Mazarine Treyz, who has helped hundreds of people with her book, Your Fundraising Career Empowerment Guide. Finally, it's got a session with Peter Drury, who will be talking about how to be a better mentor and manager in fundraising. 

Best of all, it's $139 until January 28th. This conference could really help me as a professional, 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]
