I’ve been in your shoes.

I’ve identified the sticking points that cause funding to plateau and keep organizations from growing.


Are you and your nonprofit a right fit?

Sherry works with . . .


nonprofit leaders who:

  • Simply need to raise more money

  • Are first-time, founding, or established Executive Directors

  • Left corporate careers and need a thought-partner in their new role

  • Are subject-matter experts but struggle managing the nonprofit business

  • Don't have traditional fundraising or solicitation training

  • Need to larger gifts, regular giving, and more donors

  • Know there must be a better and straighter path to growth

  • Are motivated to grow and change and ready to invest in it


  • Annual charitable revenue has plateaued or is growing too slow

  • Funding has recently grown and you need systems to maintain momentum

  • Funding is mostly program or government monies but you need to grow individual gifts

  • Gifts are mostly from a specific segment and needs to diversify funding

  • Organizational structures stateside need to grow to better support a mission overseas

  • It’s time to hire a first Executive Director or Development Director and you desire guidance through the process

Fundraising Bootcamp

Not quite ready for deep, one-on-one counsel? First, I’ll teach you for 90-days how to jump-start your organization’s revenue . . . here’s how we’ll do it!


Our Approach

Every week I talk to people all over the country who reach out because they want me to teach them how to fundraise. I can easily teach you how to solicit and fundraise, but often that is not the problem.

Before we jump in and teach you how to raise more money, we must first straighten the internal activities and rhythms that lead to healthy fundraising and revenue generation.

If you are ready to change and raise more money we can help.

We provide strategy, plans, and coaching to leaders who are ready to invest in the growth of their nonprofit organizations, teaching them the activities that will fund their missions year after year.


A goal without a plan is just a wish.
