For Impact

Imagine your world in which everyone knows their funding role and everyone’s rowing in the same direction. This is what our training is designed to do.

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.

Live experiences focus on giving practical and proven frameworks to senior leadership, development staff, and volunteer leaders.

What to Expect from For Impact Training

  • Simple and proven frameworks that you can use, whether you’re an executive director, director of development, or volunteer leader.
  • An engaging and memorable experience. The passive mind does not learn.
  • Peer learning. Through a use of stories and group discussion, you will build and learn with colleagues.
  • 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.

Global Vice President | The Hunger Project

At first, I was hesitant to work with For Impact. Although I needed help structuring my organization’s message and prospect list, I was weary of consultants promising results in a short period of time. Nonetheless, For Impact was so highly recommended to me that the MindLeaps Board encouraged me to take on a three-month trial period. WOW! After two weeks, I said to myself, if I had known that For Impact was this good, I would have hired them years ago!

I’ve worked with the team at For Impact as a development lead at two different NGOs. When you find a consultant who has the expertise, flexibility and responsiveness that For Impact has, you don’t let them go! They bring a combination of guidance, practical skills training, message development and sage advice that is invaluable. They understand the philanthropy landscape and have been true partners in helping us maximize our fundraising potential in a strategic, sustainable way.

Managing Director, Philanthropic Engagement | WaterAid America

With the training and guidance we receive from For Impact, our team steps into every visit with a donor or prospective donor with an elevated approach to planning, strategy and ultimately – the ask. Our annual fundraising goal has more than doubled from the onset of hiring For Impact. I’ve witnessed a shift in culture within our philanthropy department, and it’s been extremely rewarding to celebrate our shared success over the years.

For Impact has been a complete game changer for our grantee partners. Our partners asked for fundraising support and we hosted a number of For Impact workshops. This training received the highest evaluations for any training we have offered and I see our partners putting the skills to use and getting great results.

Interim Program Director | Wellspring Philanthropic Fund

The AOG team has taken a few For Impact training sessions and it has transformed our approach to fundraising. During the training, we devised the current AOG vision statement that ‘by 2030, Rwanda’s Most Successful Person Will Be a Young Social Entrepreneur.’ Thanks to that vision and learning how to engage funders around it, we have seen increased funding results.

Co-founder and CEO | Acts Of Gratitude

Fundraising and development is often a real pain point for the small, early stage organizations with which we engage. The For Impact bootcamp and training is one of the most impactful and scalable tools to orient organizations to raise funds and reenergize their fundraising strategy and activities. It changes mindsets around fundraising for all stakeholders and is a highly effective way of leveraging the capacity of an organization to acquire the resources it needs to fulfill its mission. I recommend it to everyone I meet!
