Fundraising Isn't Always a Piece of Cake
So many of us desire to work for and support impactful organizations. But when we look closer at that process, we realize how truly overwhelming it can be, especially when it comes to fundraising and resource mobilizing. As you deepen into the work of fueling your mission, you might begin to realize that it feels impossible to get it done, complex, emotional, and exhausting. You might want to give up. We know that sustainable impact can only happen when we work together, as a community. Join us and step into the Collective.
Become part of our collective by joining our upcoming classes. Equip yourself with the network, knowledge, and confidence to achieve your vision.
Paulomi Bhattacharyya, Create
Kim and Alison, the grant research and writing duo are a dream team to work with. Kim's in-depth and tailored research on available grant opportunities for us and Alison's ability to grasp the essence of what our organization does and put it succinctly on paper helped us at CREATE! immensely. Not only did we secure an opportunity we had worked at for years, but their help also freed up valuable time for our very small team to use efficiently. We cannot thank you enough!
Leigh Handschuh, Boston Foundation
Despite having a room full of nonprofits with a variety of needs and questions, Alyssa takes the time before and after sessions to troubleshoot and talk through the organizational culture-related fundraising barriers each nonprofit is experiencing. As one nonprofit partner put it, "Working with Alyssa is inspirational and thought-provoking. I appreciate the concrete examples she provides and the opportunity to identify a problem, propose a solution and then share and learn. Thank you!
Nashira Baril, Neighborhood Birth Center
Over the last year and a half of working with Wright Collective, we have built a relationship based on values and trust and they feel like real partners, not hired hands. I don't have a history of fundraising and am now leading a multi-million dollar capital campaign – I could not do it without their keen strategy, flexibility, their willingness to push and support me as I stretch into this work.
At the start of our work, I didn't know what I needed. I'm so glad that I trusted Alyssa and her team and their process – each step has scaffolded on the one before and the big picture makes so much sense. She's got us in good shape and feeling confident – and well supported as we move forward!
