You're Not Alone if You Feel Like This!

My guess is that you may be feeling the pressure. Everyone is looking to you to raise more money, to manage the programs, oversee the staff and/or board, and do it all without complaining. If you are like I was in that position, you just feel like screaming!  Believe me, I know!  

I have been where you are. In the trenches. Fighting the good fight. Feeling alone and unappreciated. Totally frustrated. Doing all I can (and spending every moment possible) trying to bring in more money for the cause! It's exhausting!

That's why I created this site. Knowing that I can add some value, insights, levity or all of the above to your job or passion and help you to feel more confident, capable, less alone and less frustrated gives me such a sense of satisfaction.

You will notice that this website is intended for both employees and volunteer leaders of nonprofit organizations. It doesn't matter what your title is (or that you don't have one) - Executive Director, CEO, Board member, Development Director, Fundraising Coordinator, volunteer, trash man or bottle washer - this blog is for you!


I just hope and pray that you find value in what is shared here. 

I don’t want you to feel overwhelmed by this site. If you have a specific question, we have a search box at the top of every page on the site. Use it.

Or, if you prefer, you can always contact me using the links in the NEED HELP? section to the right, or by using the contact form at the bottom of the page. I will do my best to respond in a timely manner.

There are also pages on the site that help organize the content for different people. For example:


As someone who has been a fundraiser and nonprofit leader on both sides of the volunteer and professional spectrum, I know firsthand that you need all the help and resources you can get. Because what you do is so critically  important. The world is counting on you.


Just know that I believe in you  - You've got this!
