ENROLL NOW!

You're COURAGEOUS enough to follow your passion and selflessly help others.

You're COMMITTED enough to show up every day to work towards your goals.

You're CONFIDENT enough to make BIG BOLD decisions and be the torch-bearer.

SMART. AMBITIOUS. COMPASSIONATE. THAT'S YOU!

BUT... when it comes to getting 200 donors to attend your event, designing a program that is both engaging and informative, and THEN going for the BIG ASK (so you can get the funds flowing) … you feel confused, overwhelmed and not-so-confident. Fundraising, event production and marketing all in one night feels impossible to pull off!

  • You lay down a picture-perfect production plan for your annual event, but when it comes to implementation, things don’t turn out as you’d hoped (What on earth went wrong?).  
  • You try to keep up with all the up & coming marketing tricks (be it the traditional offline world or the tantalizing online world) ... only to end up flushing dollars down the drain and still not attracting excited new donors and leaving your board VERY unhappy!  
  • You spend hours preparing your donor pitch, but when it comes to the BIG ASK, you feel sick to your stomach wondering if your speech is not meaningful enough for your donor to write a check - leading you to miss out on a large chunk of revenue. (Cha…NOT…ching!)  
  • You start doubting your fundraising strategy. “Maybe we should have hosted an auction event instead but what if guests don’t raise their paddles??? Which type of fundraising event is the right one for US?”

You got into fundraising with the thirst to make REAL impact in the world – to bring attention to the things unnoticed, to change lives on a grand scale, to spread happiness and positivity around you.

You’d come across a story of how an organization changed someone’s life FOREVER and you couldn’t help but imagine yourself doing the same – with pure intentions, utmost dedication, and unwavering WILLPOWER.

Being part of a non-profit is a no-brainer for you. You are MEANT to do this thing. But little did you know that such beautiful work will come with its own set of hardships, challenges and barriers. You get one task done, and 10 more are waiting for you. Not to talk about the pressure of meeting rising expectations and gigantic goals.


AS SOMEONE WHO HAS EXPERIENCED, FIRSTHAND, THE STRUGGLES AND PAINS OF A PASSIONATE VOLUNTEER AND A PROFESSIONAL FUNDRAISER, I KNOW YOU’RE OFTEN FACED WITH THESE BURNING QUESTIONS.


  • Are fundraising events even a viable strategy for getting donations? I mean how do I make it work, is there a step-by-step fail-proof plan?  
  • How do I get new prospective donors on my list, get them involved in the great work we do AND inspire them to help?  
  • Fundraising events are not cheap to organize, how can I make sure I’m going to bring in a fair amount of revenue for my organization?  
  • I already have a list of donors, but I feel like I’m pushing my luck asking them again and again. #thestruggleisreal  
  • How can I market my event in a way that aligns with my ultimate vision and goals? Is that even a thing?
  • Being insanely clear about the vision for your fundraising event…  
  • From the kind of message to put out there to the type of audience to attract, there’s no obscurity, no confusion (#NoMixedSignals) …  
  • Getting in front of new donors all the time and impressing them with your cause, your vision and your mission…  
  • Having a long list of event attendees who are excited and can’t wait to show up! (#ShutUpAndTakeMyMoney)  
  • Having a streamlined marketing strategy and an event plan that matches your revenue goals…  
  • No longer feeling like you were doing things that weren’t making any impact…  
  • No more questioning your every move and fearing a LOW turnout at your event…  
  • Having a SOLD-OUT event that strengthens the positioning of your non-profit and surpasses your revenue goals (#HelloVacation)...
  • Raising 6-figures to help you meet your annual fundraising goals!!!! 

INTRODUCING…

A "Done with You" program designed to help passionate volunteers, fundraising professionals, and nonprofits plan, market & execute an impact-creating and revenue-generating fundraising event.

This program is specifically designed for mission-driven fundraisers who are sick and tired of constantly worrying about not having enough funds and throwing spaghetti on the wall hoping something will stick.

If you’re looking for a step-by-step, understandable and implementable plan so you can help your cause get noticed by the right people, create amazing donor relations, and raise millions and billions in donations to FULLY support your organization, this program is for YOU.

5 value-packed modules will teach you everything from defining the needs of your organization and the fundraising metrics to developing your event’s marketing plan, from learning to invite, ignite & excite the right donors to creating an unforgettable experience at your event, all the way to the right (and proven) follow up strategy + capturing key takeaways so you know what works and what doesn’t.

HERE’S AN OVERVIEW OF WHAT'S INCLUDED:

  • 3 60-minute 1:1 coaching calls to help you personally strategize and plan your next big fundraiser
  • Quick start module: video, worksheets, and a checklist to help you get started on the right foot.
  • 5 step-by-step training modules (with progress tracker).
  • 3 AH-MAZING bonuses (if you’re fast enough to take action) to help you speed up the process.
  • Workbooks to go with each module, handy cheat sheets, and relevant resources.
  • Lifetime membership so you can go through the program at your own pace if you want.

Positioning your cause as a GO-TO charity with the highest impact is not as easy as it initially seems, and getting new people to donate, one gift a time, can be a constant uphill battle.

BUT, I KNOW YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO PLAN AND IMPLEMENT A 6-FIGURE FUNDRAISING EVENT EVEN IF...


  • You've NEVER planned a fundraising event before!  
  • You're nervous your board won't help with fundraising, inviting, engaging with donors!  
  • You only have 1,000 people in your donor database.  
  • You have a small staff.  
  • You have little to no volunteers.  
  • You're afraid if you plan the event, no one will come.  
  • You've planned an event before and barely broke even.  
  • You don't know what type of fundraising event is right for your organization. 

HERE’S WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT ME…

A fundraising consultant, philanthropist and a mom of 4. Life for me is more than a series of incidents that happen to you. It’s a beautiful experience that can be made EVEN more meaningful with careful, deliberate and thoughtful action.

Going from a frustrated stay at home mom to a professional fundraiser who raised $1.8 MILLION in one night (overseeing a team of 200 volunteers) didn’t happen by accident. It was my CHOICE, my way of giving back to the world, and my vehicle of personal & professional contentment.

Though I never in my wildest dreams thought about joining the nonprofit world and volunteering for such BIG causes, I always had this urge to do something constructive, something significant.

What?

I had no idea.

Then one day, all the way back in 1994, me and my friend were invited to chair our children’s upcoming Catholic School Annual Fundraiser Silent Auction Dinner Dance.

Now, usually it would be a small event of 300, but this time we were told to plan an event for 800+ people as it was their Jubilee year and the alumni was invited as well. 

The previous average fundraiser never went beyond $150K, but this time around, we were able to bring in $300K+ in revenue (DOUBLED the amount) that left the school administration in happy tears.

Since then, I’ve never looked back.

20 years, being a part of a billion dollar campaign and holding a Chief Development Officer post at an award-winning nonprofit later, I’m here to help YOU create an impact by fully supporting the causes you believe in.

Selected achievements from my three key employers that show the kind of work I’ve been doing: 

As the Chief Development Officer with Fresh Lifelines for Youth, I created the organization’s marquee event “Taste of Fresh Lifelines for Youth” that highlighted their programs, attracted donors, and enabled us to raise annual revenue (increase of 73% from 1st year). This organization has now hosted this event 6 years in a row!

As an Assistant Director and Director of Donor Relations with Stanford University, I led the planning and organization of numerous events that included key events with The Stanford Challenge (campaign generated $6B in 6 years), Dinner on the Quad (1,800 attendees), and all VIP events for Stanford Athletics.

As Senior Special Events Director at Sacred Heart Schools, Atherton, I oversaw a team of 200 volunteers and together we raised $1.8M in one night. 

You see, I have been on both sides; I’ve raised money as a volunteer mom chairing events and have also raised money for large institutions and nonprofits as a fundraising professional. I’ve done both high-end fundraising and grassroots fundraising. I’ve seen it all and appreciate and respect the work that goes into every level of fundraising.

And if there’s ONE thing that helps you SHINE BRIGHT and provide MASSIVE RESULTS is your ability to take your nonprofit's vision & mission and infuse it into everything you do as a fundraiser.

  • I do this by extracting the core values of the programs and services of the organization, and then sprinkling them throughout the event (whether it’s planning or execution).  
  • I make sure the fingerprints of the programs and services are all over the bodies of the donors or event attendees (there are strategies for this!!)!  
  • When people leave an event I’ve planned, they know exactly what the organization stands for and what exactly the needs of the organization are (resulting into ROCK-SOLID positioning + MEGA funds).

PEOPLE TODAY ARE WAY MORE MOTIVATED TO CHANGE THE WORLD FOR THE BETTER— BE IT HELPING FAMILY OR FRIENDS, OR TOTAL STRANGERS.

They are willing to help your cause too.

"I worked with Lisa when I was the board chair of Fresh Lifelines for Youth (FLY) and Lisa was the Chief Development Officer. Lisa worked with the board, programs and administrative staff to create the vision, strategy and event production for FLY's very first evening fundraising event known as Taste of Fresh Lifelines for Youth. In year one, the event was attended by close to 200 donors, raised $240K in new revenue and brought in 10 corporate sponsors and in-kind donations. This event continues to bring in revenue year after year totaling over a million dollars for the organization. Her passion, commitment and expertise in fundraising events helped raise the organizations fundraising capabilities and aspirations."

Hugh Molotsi, Innovator, Advisor, Entrepreneur, Former Intuit executive and innovation leader.

How do I know if this program will work for me?  

It's designed specifically for organizations who need to add an another revenue stream!  

So, if you're a nonprofit fundraiser, NGO, NPO, passionate mom, or volunteer trying to raise money for your cause, then you're in the right place.

"Lisa Clark is a talented event professional who prioritizes the organization’s mission when crafting events. She understands event management from conception to execution and everything in between. Lisa’s events provide the greatest return on investment for her clients while offering the best experience for the event participants."

Christa McLoy, Assistant Director of Donor Relations, Office of Development,Stanford University

"These modules have been very helpful. We have started a fundraising committee for our agency and we had our first meeting. These tools and [LESSONS] give us direction. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and experience with us. Your tools give me the confidence to move forward with something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time.”

IT’S TIME TO LEARN HOW TO HOST FUNDRAISING EVENTS THAT DELIVER!

BACKED BY A 30-DAY “DO THE WORK” MONEY BACK GUARANTEE

I’m so confident that what I’m teaching in this course is going to help you step-up your fundraising game 110% that I’m offering you a REAL “Do-the-Work” Money Back Guarantee. The strategies and techniques you’re learning here are tried, tested and proven to work. 

However, if you still do not see the value in this course, simply email us at CustomerCareLisaClark@gmail.com show us proof of work and implementation and we will send you a FULL refund within 30 days of enrollment. That’s right, I’m gonna give you every penny back.

1. How much time does it realistically require from planning to hosting a fundraising event?  

If we’re talking about hosting a rock-solid fundraising event, you’re looking at least 8-10 months of ground work to ensure that the event is profitable financially as well as relationship wise.

This program will help you understand all the steps involved and what EXACTLY you need to do in each step to fully leverage fundraising events.


2. Who is this program best suited for?

While what I teach normally is applicable to Non-Profits around the globe, this particular program is aimed to help organizations or individuals that:

  • Are willing to learn how they can sell-out their fundraising event by following a step-by-step plan that’s proven to work
  • May not have a budget to invest on a fundraising event but are willing to take a chance
  • Are willing to formulate a committee to help plan an event
  • Have impact stories and stats they want to share with the world
  • Are willing to think outside the box on how to utilize programs and services before, during and after the event
  • Trust the process
  • Are willing to break from tradition

If you relate to the above, then we’re a perfect fit! And I can’t wait to see you inside the program.

However, if you are:

  • Someone who is not willing to formulate a fundraising team
  • Someone who is not willing to add an event into their annual budget
  • Someone who uses "no donor base" as an excuse not to plan one
  • Someone who doesn’t have an official board
  • Someone with no impact stories or testimonials
  • Someone who fights to remain "status quo"
  • Someone not willing to put in the work

Then I do not believe this program is a good fit for you. 


3. I am very much interested in fundraising via events, but have no clue what kind of event to host. Is this still for me?

This is indeed for you! If you’re committed to give it your 100% and work towards raising funds through events, then I will help you do just that + this program will share all the possible revenue generating activities with you and assist you in choosing the best one for you.


4. What format is the content delivered in + how long will I have access to the content?

The content of this program will be made available to you on an online learning platform that’s fun to use.

You’ll have videos + worksheets to help you through planning and executing your annual event.

The content is yours forever. And I mean that! It won’t disappear after a certain time period. You can revisit anytime and go over the modules.


5. Do you offer any refunds or guarantees?

YES! When you join this program, you have 30 days to go through the content, and do the work. If you don’t see any results (which is just impossible), simply email us at CustomerCareLisaClark@gmail.com show us proof of work and implementation and we will send you a FULL refund within 30 days of enrollment. However, you won’t be eligible for the refund if you have not worked through the modules, participated in calls, or implemented anything.


6. Is it possible to get a tax receipt?

Of course! Once you’ve enrolled, simply drop an email to my team at CustomerCareLisaClark@gmail.com and we’ll send you an official tax receipt.

For any more questions or queries, please email customercarelisaclark@gmail.com
