What people are saying:
Thank you so much for writing the book “Anatomy of a Fundraising Appeal Letter”. Last year, I was told to fundraise even though I have never done that before. After buying and reading your ebook, I went on to create a fundraising appeal and fundraised for my organization and I won the highest fundraiser amount for that campaign compared to all team members in my country.

Bar none – the best webinar I have ever attended… Claire, thanks so much! Since I am a trainer and speaker myself, I know a good presentation when I hear/see one. Great work.
– Diana Brooks, Principal, Diana Brooks Associates
Was very impressed! I tuned into your free webinar recording this morning and was very impressed! We, as a non-profit, are fairly new to utilizing social networking/blogging, so many of the concepts you presented were quite timely. Thank you for the education you offer!
– Barbie McNutt, Hope Pregnancy Center, Harrison, MI
Many of the attendees of my social media classes follow for tips… Claire – Thank you for sharing this great article. I have shared it on my FB and Twitter pages that many of my social media students follow for tips after the class. So your writings will be shared in the U.S. and abroad. Well done!

Most lucid, most succinct checklist I have read on the engagement process… Should be required reading for all concerned with major gift solicitation.
– Giles Pegram, CBE, Fundraising Consultant, London, England
I came across your website and I hit the goldmine! I was asked to join a board and found I need to understand how to build a donor base from the ground up. I searched, only to find expensive consultants or free info that didn’t offer any helpful information. Thank you for sharing so much valuable information!!
– Erica Martinez
It’s awesome! I’m participating in your Winning Major Gifts Fundraising Strategies course and have to say, it’s awesome! The information is extremely relevant and helpful.
