Calling all not-for-profit professionals!

Lift Your Game To The Next Level

You’ve got what it takes—a passion for the cause, a solid track record of raising fundraising dollars, and a drive to excel at your job. You’ve got the basic building blocks of fundraising success.

But something’s holding you back from working in your place of genius. What could you accomplish if you were able to lean into your role as Chief Visionary Officer at your organization? What would you need to change in order to “lift your fundraising game” to the next level?

Ready to take your career to the next level?
Then the Fundraising with Confidence Mastermind Program is for you!


This 12-month intensive program is all about YOU!

It will teach you how to:

  • Approach your job with purpose and clarity so you achieve the goals that feed your success.
  • Increase your productivity and efficiency so you can excel at your job.
  • Increase your confidence and bring your best self to your workplace.
  • Get better results at your current job to set yourself up for success.

Who is a good fit for the Mastermind program?

You work in the not-for-profit sector and you are involved in fundraising. Your friends call you a keener, and you really love your work.

BUT . . .

Lately you’ve lost your drive and you’re feeling stuck. You’re craving a new vision for your professional future and you’re ready to get some help to get there.

Feeling Stuck

Does this sound like you?

  • You’re feeling like a broken record at work about the importance of creating a culture of philanthropy where donors come first.
  • You’re struggling to find the time to actually FUNDRAISE because of all the unproductive meetings and emails that are clogging your brain.
  • Your instincts tell you that you’re doing the right things to drive fundraising revenue, but now you’re starting to doubt yourself because everyone at the office is looking at you like you have two heads!
  • You are feeling incredibly isolated. There’s no one to talk to about your challenges.

It is more than possible to be a strong, successful not-for-profit professional …and still get out of the office by 5pm.

Danny Glenwright
Jenny's Major Gifts course taught me how to phrase open-ended questions so I could understand how much money to ask for, when to ask, what that donor wanted their gift used for, and much more. I've already been able to apply the learning from the course to meetings with potential donors. — Danny Glenwright, Executive Director, Journalists Human Rights

My Major Gifts Mastery course brought me from overwhelmed to inspired. Jenny delivers the perfect combination of guidance and wisdom. — Louise Hanlon, Director, Canadian Wildlife Foundation

It’s time to seek out the support and the coaching to get you there. You’ve got this!

In our industry we tend to focus on the organization, the sector, and our clients. Nobody focuses on us, the not-for-profit professional. If WE are strong, and confident leaders, our organizations, our staff and our sector thrive.

The better we are at our jobs, the more money we raise, the more impact we can have in our communities.

The Mastermind program is the place to clarify that vision, and set your sights on the steps that will lead you to personal and professional success.

  • Get better results at your current job to set yourself up for success.
  • Maximize your results in your work.
  • Approach your job with purpose and clarity so you achieve the goals that feed your success. (and celebrate them!)
  • Accountability and Coaching to keep you in upward motion so you don’t get stuck.

How do I talk to my boss about investing in this program on my behalf?

Coaching is the most cost-effective way to maximize fundraising revenues. Your organization will have full access to a professional fundraiser with CFRE designation through the Fundraising with Confidence Mastermind 12-month program.

It’s like having your very own fundraising consultant, at a fraction of the cost!

The program will teach staff how to raise more money, while also working independently. The program runs over 12 months because changing behaviours takes time, effort and a commitment to change.


Here’s what’s Included in the program:

  • A Kickoff Retreat in September
  • Monthly one-on-one call
  • Two monthly group calls
  • A Facebook group so you can keep in touch, hold yourself accountable, and stay connected between our sessions.
  • Monthly training modules (reporting to board, stewardship, team building, communication 101, fundraising radar, volunteer engagement, four quarter goal setting, personality styles, fundraising writing)
  • Inclusion in all other Chavender trainings and programs throughout the year!
  • Accountability and support from other like-minded, motivated professionals - celebrate your wins and get help through your challenges.
