Productive Fundraising works with nonprofit organizations in the areas of charitable fundraising and board development.  We focus on simple, effective fundraising systems as well as strategies to strengthen nonprofit boards of directors.

We have found that most charity workers are there because they are passionate and dedicated, not because they know the best way to fundraise or manage a board of directors.  We connect that passion with proven techniques for maximum success.  Our goal is simple … to help you fulfill your mission by working smarter, not harder.

We offer a variety of 90 minute training sessions designed to get everyone on the same page and provide immediate results for your organization …

BUSINESS TRAINING

  • How to ASK for ANYTHING in Business
    We also train for profit businesses in one thing, and one thing only: soft skills.  Here is what a recent client had to say about this training:  “Technical Professionals like engineers, accountants, or attorneys often struggle with the skills needed to build business, develop networks, and gain access to prospects and referral sources.  We spend a lot of time as professionals focusing on technical training.  But successful professionals know that these soft skills are critical to growth and development.  Chad’s training gives a systematic approach to building and maintaining contact with your network of clients and contacts.  It’s easily integrated into your company’s development plans and gives your team the tools they need to succeed.  My colleagues that have participated are using this method to great and measurable effect.”
