Authenticity in Fundraising: A Conversation on The Freshman Fundraisers

Authenticity in Fundraising: A Conversation on The Freshman Fundraisers


I loved joining Diana and Kim on the Freshman Fundraisers podcast to talk all about authenticity in fundraising. 

I spent 10 years fundraising without anyone ever talking to me about this little game-changing trick. 

Thanks to countless fundraising training programs, I was fixated on the ‘science’ of fundraising. I was sure that there was a ‘right way’ to do everything and when I didn’t know what that ‘right way’ was, I was paralyzed. 

Paralysis for fundraisers, I’ve come to learn, is incredibly common. 

So many fundraisers spend so much time wondering if they’ve said the right thing, done the right thing, asked the right questions, and on and on.

You’ll also hear about why it’s so important to understand your values and whether your values are coming from a conscious-based or fear-based place. After you have a listen to the episode, make sure to download my Alignment 101 Guide to get you on the right track to tapping into your authenticity and becoming a fearless fundraiser.

And, if you want to learn more about what it takes to become that empowered and embodied nonprofit leader (the one you know is under there when you’re not being pulled in a million directions) then you need to come to my webinar: How to Raise More from the Right Funders WITHOUT Obnoxiously Hounding Them.

You might think those feelings are coming from a circumstance, but often they are not. They are coming from a belief and thought you are holding about that circumstance​ As women, the first story/voice that we usually hear is that our self-critic. The self-critic is designed to keep you playing small.
