For Impact

At the For Impact Funding Boot Camp, we help you build a solid foundation around the For Impact Point of View and frameworks, including how to successfully tell your story, develop your team and transform your funding.

This signature experience is perfect for our organizational alums or for anyone looking to hone his/her individual skills.

(It’s designed to be a huge personal and professional development opportunity!) Because of this focus on frameworks and skill building, you will leave with the knowledge you need to simplify your message, create a funding rationale and take your organization to the next level.

Our high-energy, two-day session is focused on how to:

  • Execute against a sales process (for major gifts, campaign gifts, transformational gifts, etc.)
  • Build and maximize relationships
  • Build and lead an effective team
  • Ask, close and follow-up

I attended the Fundraising School. That was boring and academic. For Impact Boot camp was totally different. It was charged with energy and completely practical.

At Boot Camp, we cover:

The For Impact Point of View, which includes:

  • A change in vocabulary
  • The entrepreneurial spirit
  • Design-thinking (lots of VISUALS at this camp)


The Sales Process in depth, which includes:

  • Clarifying your vision
  • Simplifying your message
  • Articulating priorities and case for support
  • Designing captivating engagement tools
  • Identifying, prioritizing and strategizing prospects
  • Engaging leadership (including your board)

Boot Camps

Participants will receive:

  • “How to Sell” toolkit (example letters, scripts, call memos)
  • One year of access to our online learning library (value $995)
  • Follow up Coaching Call

So simple it’s almost embarrassing to have to pay for it – but it has paid us back 1000 times over.

What to Expect

(Hint: It’s not your typical conference!)

A For Impact Boot Camp is the opposite of what you’ve come to dread from conferences and workshops. Instead, what you CAN expect:  


  • Simple, applicable, proven frameworks and ideas that you can use, whether you’re an executive director, director of development or volunteer leader.
  • Some controversial thinking.
  • No PowerPoints. But still lots of visuals, including our signature napkins (so all your takeaways are guaranteed to be simple.)
  • Value that goes beyond funding. We’re life entrepreneurs, so while we always want to create value in the form of funding results, there is a huge personal development theme in everything we do.
  • Energy (not in a ‘rah-rah’ way but in a ‘we-know-you-wear-52-hats-we’ve-been-there-we’ve-got-your-back’ way. We want to solve your problems, not create more work) …with authenticity.
  • 1:1 coaching and follow-up. We to offer one-on-one coaching during and after attendance to help you apply the frameworks.
