Schedule your VIP Day today and receive one-on-one catered services aimed at achieving your organization’s goals.
Growing a business is hard work! I didn’t know all the answers when I started out on my own, and I still don’t. But what I did learn very quickly was that a good coach, or coaching session was an invaluable tool to getting me on the right track, helping create my plan for success, and helping me move forward in a productive way.
On a VIP Day, you get one-on-one attention from me and my staff to tackle specific problems you’re facing in your organization. Each VIP session will be catered to your particular needs so we can help you achieve your goals and address concerns. We’ll help you identify areas where you can excel, create ways to grow, and help you get energized and inspired to grow for good!
Planning is a big part of any VIP Day. We will help you craft a plan to guide you where you need to be, and a map to get there!
Feeling overwhelmed and unsure how to help move our organization to the next level, I made the decision to invest in a one-on-one VIP Day with Mandy. I am so glad I did! She researched grants, evaluated our current fundraising plan and operating budget, helped me set realistic priorities, and generated ideas to grow and retain donors. I am already seeing results. But my biggest take away was the confidence I gained through her coaching. I now feel like I have the knowledge, tools, and resources I need to move forward. Mandy's passion for helping nonprofits is contagious. I would encourage anyone looking to develop their fundraising skills and gain confidence to reach new heights to spend a day with Mandy.
Women's Resource Center
I would like to recommend Amanda Pearce from Funding for Good as an consultant, coach, and visionary strategic planner. Working with "Mandy" for two years has turned my fundraising skills around 360 degrees. I have learned so much about securing new donors and retaining donors from this amazing woman. Mandy provides easy to use tools and a strong support system to help you grow. During the two years I've worked with Mandy, I have exceeded my year-to-date goals. You too, can benefit from Mandy’s no-nonsense, practical, and easy to apply ideas, to mold and grow your organization.
Girls on the Run of the Greater Piedmont
Mandy is fantastic resource for all non-profits! After taking a few of her local classes, reading her blog posts and watching some webinars I knew I was ready for a deep dive into grant writing, development planning and board development. I hired Mandy as a consultant for her VIP Day package and know the investment of time and money were both WELL spent! Her expertise is incredible as she is professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her services if you are feeling overwhelmed, want to better understand development tactics, or are ready to take your organization to the next level.
As non-profit staff, time is a commodity that gets stretched way too thin for most of us.
Ideally we would have time every day to work on donor relations, special events, reports, spending quality time in our programs or projects, writing grants and researching new funding opportunities. Unfortunately, the truth is, we are putting out fires, dealing with the unplanned and unpredictable events that come up in the non-profit world and rarely getting our to-do list completely checked off. Even with the best intentions and well laid out plans, we don’t usually get to everything.
When it comes to grant writing, I often hear it doesn’t get priority over other responsibilities in a development department or small shop that wears many hats. Coming from many small offices over the years, I understand that concept all too well. This is why I offer grant research for non-profits. I can research for a particular program, project, or organization in just a few weeks’ time. The hours of research saved are invaluable.
Grant Proposal Review
Foundation Proposals $150 | State and Federal Proposals $400
Send us your draft grant proposal (in a Word document) and Funding For Good staff will become your second set of eyes. We will edit, revise, and make recommendations for improving your proposal and ensuring proposal elements are fully addressed. Proposal review is a cost-effective way for your organization to keep writing services in-house while maintaining a level of professionalism that grant experts can provide.
The Writer's Block been excellent! The latest proposal you reviewed for me was to get a grant for senior dogs (we're an animal shelter) medical expense for dental treatments. You've given me invaluable information; we did not get this grant last year so I'm trying again - and am now hopeful with your help, to get it. Sadly the same dogs are still here this year at our shelter - they're seniors and hard to place, so getting them dental treatments will hopefully be one less obstacle for people and increase their chances of adoption. You provided very honest and valuable feedback that will greatly improve my application. If anyone else here has the services but hasn't taken advantage of such, please do!!
I've known Mandy for about a year. I've attended many of her classes and am a part of her Writer's Block group. I have to say that I must have been paying attention or I like the simplicity in which Mandy explains processes. Over the past year I've written 17 grants, 6 that were new and received a total of $374,000. I attribute that to the great training and grant reviewing from Mandy.
Saint Seton's Orphaned Animals
I must admit, I am burnt out. I am under a lot of pressure to raise funds for our organization. I write a lot of grants. When I saw the name of the "Writer's Block" group, I thought, "I can relate." It's been a pleasure to have a fresh pair of eyes to review my proposals. I am working with Marie to craft a template for a capital campaign to purchase a building. When she said she would write it, I wanted to hug her.
Second Chance Sheridan Cat Rescue
Amanda Pearce is an angel when it comes to supporting our non-profit, Second Chance Sheridan Cat Rescue. The organization struggled for a few years with volunteers attempting to write grants blindly. Funding for Good provided us with initial grant research and training to get us started through their program, The Writer's Block. We continue to use all the great resources Amanda provides and send grants we write for her review. The service has been priceless, and we have received over $14,000 in grants the past year, with another four pending decisions from foundations. The ongoing contact with webinars, training, and Facebook through The Writer's Block program provide support and motivation we needed as a small organization with limited resources.
