Mindful Fundraising™

A new and holistic approach to fundraising for nonprofits and social enterprises.Screen Shot 2014-11-17 at 6.17.26 PM

We have come to a point where many organizations are no longer able to sustain themselves through the current fundraising model.  There are many reasons why nonprofit groups are falling short of fulfilling their missions, from the economic downturn of 2008, to higher competition, and other external factors.

There is a critical area that is often overlooked, but now more than ever, it can no longer be ignored.  Nonprofits need to focus their energy and take a good look at themselves and assess what internal factors are impacting their fundraising.

Assessing those internal factors requires a holistic approach, combined with mindfulness – the ability to be present and aware of one’s thoughts, emotions, and surroundings.

So many people working at nonprofits are stressed, exhausted, overcommitted and overwhelmed – but how can you think clearly and strategically about what you are doing and the decisions you are making if you are not present or mindful in your work?  Building relationships is the essence of fundraising, but if you are absent-minded and inattentive, it’s simply not going to happen.

Thus was born Mindful Fundraising™.  This approach builds on three essential components:

  • Applying a Holistic Approach
  • Building the Foundation for Fundraising
  • Integrating Mindfulness

There are a number of things you can do to integrate the Mindful Fundraisingapproach into your organization.  It starts with self-awareness and self-care and then expands to a greater awareness of your organization.
