Being a nonprofit fundraiser isn’t always fun and games!

You’re getting a lot of things right, but you know there’s got to be a way to have more consistency in funds coming in. What you really want is to…

  • Have consistency in donations so you have a better picture of what’s coming in each month.
  • Find an easier way to build relationships with donors so you can increase their gifts over time
  • Increase retention of your donors.

You can have all of these things. The best part: I’ve got something to help.


15+ experts over 5 days will teach you strategies you can use to build a monthly donor program that helps you cover your operating expenses every month!

Maybe you’re…

  • A small team that feels like you’re constantly on the hamster wheel.
  • Getting funds from 1-2 larger donors, leaving your organization vulnerable.
  • Looking for additional ways to bring in funds.

Whatever it is for you, it’s time to create financial sustainability with a monthly donor program.

Meet your host

Sami Bedell-Mulhern

In 2017, I started my freelance business, H & E Marketing Solutions, helping small business owners, entrepreneurs and non-profits create and execute their digital strategies in Bend, OR.

My background was is in non-profit work and fundraising. I have seen first hand the struggles in an ever-evolving landscape and the pressures that Development professionals feel to keep the funds coming in.

I wanted to create ways to support non-profits where they are and make non-profit fundraising, online, easier. I believe in the organization you’re trying to build, and the impact you can make in your community – so let’s do this!

Here’s What Some Past Attendees have Had to Say!

“I can’t believe how much I learned in five days. As a small nonprofit, learning best practices about online fundraising sounds like a insurmountable task at times when the daily activities of serving clients seems more pressing. It is very important to share your story (and therefore encourage giving) in an effective way, which requires planning. After the four-day summit, our organization has a better grasp on what next steps for fundraising and were given many tools and suggestions to more effectively tell our story. It was definitely worth it to clear my schedule to be able to attend. I came away with action steps that we will take over this next year.”

Lorraine Meyer

Founder & Executive Director of A Friend 4U

“The Online Fundraising Virtual Summit was 4 information packed days of incredible speakers. The summit was: INFORMATIONAL – so much great content INSPIRATIONAL – we can do MORE! ENABLING – useful tools and processes were made available ENGAGING – interaction with the speakers was easy * ACTION-ORIENTED – I walked away with so much to do that will make our organization truly successful. Just as important was recognition that we were doing great things and the advice to PRIORITIZE and FOCUS – taking it one step at a time and not be overwhelmed. Thanks to the organizer – Sami! I’m looking forward to the next one.”
