... Do you find every year being a repetition of the previous year (raise more money, find more donors, deal with board members' expectations, plan donor events, write grants...)?
You're constantly struggling to meet your nonprofit organization's mission and needs, year after year... but who's watching out for your needs?
Do you ever feel like the people around you just think you go out and have "coffee with Rich people"? When somebody suggests a new program, do they assume you can make the needed money "magically" appear?
Do you sometimes have a hard time communicating with board members and senior staff?
Even though you love making a difference, do some days just seem harder than others to be upbeat and motivated?
You're Not Alone
Many fundraising professionals feel the same way. That's why I created "Movie Mondays" as a weekly series for fundraising professionals.
Imagine coming into the office every Monday morning knowing there was a personal team of like-minded nonprofit "friends" waiting to share their experiences, creative insights and hard earned wisdom with you.
Would that relieve some of the tension in your shoulders?
That's exactly what "Movie Mondays for Fundraising Professionals" does.
Real Fundraising Professionals with Real Experience
I have interviewed and filmed over 70 fundraising professionals (Development Directors, Executive Directors, Board Members, Donors, etc.)... people with real world experiences and knowledge... In fact, I'm constantly filming fundraising professionals with unique perspectives and fresh ideas.
Each week I take these interviews and turn them into short videos (3-5 minutes) where your colleagues talk about how they overcome particular problems.
Every Monday morning I send an email that contains a link to the short video. The email goes out to all the Movie Monday subscribers. Subscriptions to Movie Mondays is is totally free.
Once you become a subscriber, I'll send you the same link I email to all the other professional fundraisers who watch. When you get the email, just simply click on the link and your nonprofit colleagues will show you how they:
Find Major Donors,
Make the Ask,
Encourage Board Members to Fundraise,
Create more Public Awareness,
Prioritize their time
Find and Train Volunteers,
And a lot more... all while you drink your morning coffee.
One huge benefit from these movies is the ability to use them in board meetings and to use them as 3rd party validation for your own ideas. I know that sometimes it's hard to get a point across to different members of your team. Movie Mondays provides an excellent way to make a point or to start a discussion.
Sign up today. It's free and if you want to unsubscribe, it's as easy as clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of each email... and your privacy is very important to me. I will not rent or share your name or email with anyone else.

"A while ago I began sending the links to Movie Mondays to all our board members. After a few weeks several of them let me know I did not need to continue sending them the link because they saw them as valuable enough for their Board role as fund raisers that they had signed up to get them directly."
