Welcome to the 20-Day Fundraising Challenge!

Over the course of 20 days you'll learn a bunch of new fundraising skills, tricks and tips to help you raise more money. There's a lecture for each day where I'll assign you a task to help you raise more money for your organization. I'll show you the thinking behind it and why it'll work for you!

You'll learn loads about all sorts of fundraising from individuals and companies, using the phone, e-mail, post, social media, video and more! With this course you'll learn loads, raise more, and even have some fun along the way. (*fun not guaranteed)

I recommend you set aside less than an hour each day to watch each lecture and put it in to practice. But of course the beauty of this course is that you can do it all at your own pace...cram it all in to one day or pick it up whenever you have a bit of spare time.

Take this journey with me and you WILL raise more money!

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone who wants to raise more money for your organization.
  • Fundraisers who want to broaden their skills.
  • Any non-profit, charity, event or start-up that wants to increase their fundraising.
