Hi! It’s me, dropping in to your in box to say that I hope you’re having a great summer and getting in some much-deserved R&R!

Autumn is creeping ever closer, and we all know what that means…
After-school activities.
Weekends that disappear in the blink of an eye.
Cooler temps. Shorter days. Crisp autumn leaves.
Those yummy pumpkin lattes… and cider donuts!

AND – autumn is also when…
A bazillion grants are due.
Our annual appeal has to get out the door.
You may even have a special event you’re trying to pull off.

That’s a lot of plates to keep spinning!

As you gear up for the fall fundraising season, I want to help position you for success.
To help you maximize the revenue you derive from your appeal.
To teach you how to write love letters, based on current research, that will inspire your donors to give generously!

In the coming weeks, I’ll be writing a series on maximizing individual revenue.
Teaching you what I learned in Scotland, which will forever change the way you approach individual donor work.

If there’s a specific topic you want me to address, shoot me an email ([email protected]) to let me know and I’ll do my best to include it in the series.

Meanwhile, head to the beach, the mountains, the hiking trail, or wherever it is that makes you happiest, because we’re running out of summer & you deserve a break!

Yours with sand between my toes,
