I’m a fundraising expert with 20+ years of frontline experience raising millions of dollars across the arts, education, health and human services sectors. 

I specialize in working with nonprofits to increase your revenue and exceed your goals by helping you raise more 5, 6 and 7- figure donations.

If you want to get focused on getting the biggest bang for your fundraising buck - and you’re ready to stop working reactively, rushing from crisis to crisis, and chasing after the latest FSO (Fundraising Shiny Object)…

Here’s how I can help:

Create consistent, reliable revenue growth 

Do you suspect that you could be raising much more money, much more effectively?

I can help you understand the effectiveness of your current fundraising, discover untapped opportunities, and understand what needs to be in place for your future fundraising success.

Whether your major gift efforts need a makeover, or your overall fundraising needs a total transformation, I can help you create the consistent, reliable revenue growth you need scale your programs and services and touch more lives through your important work.

Raise the money you need to move the needle for your mission  

Recent headlines are saying that fundraising is down, donations are down, and donor retention is down. 

You could let this news get to you - but I think your crucial work is too important to give in to Chicken Little Syndrome!  

With my skills in Strategy Development and Planning, we can work together to see the big picture, understand the current fundraising trends that impact you, and put a strategy in place to raise the money you need to really start moving the needle for your mission. 

Take your fundraising to the next level

I’ve taken everything I’ve learned from more than 20 years of successful fundraising, and broken it down into a clear, comprehensive coaching and training program for every budget level. 

Do you have board members who want to help, but are uncertain of where to begin?  Are you a CEO who needs to sharpen your major donor meeting skills? Or a small shop fundraiser who would benefit from additional support and skill-sharing?

I can provide you with customized Coaching and Training – through digital courses, one-on-one coaching, or with small or large group training, I can help you and your team develop the skills and knowledge you need to take your fundraising to the next level.

With more than 80 offices spanning Canada and the US, nearly 1,000 brand ambassadors and a management team with over 40 years of direct marketing experience, GFD has the ability to acquire, analyze and retain more monthly donors than any other provider.

Our core F2F services, comprised of door-to-door (D2D), street, business-to-business (B2B) and event/retail platforms allow us to knock on approximately 100,000 doors and engage in nearly 20,000 meaningful conversations with potential donors, every single day.  

GFD’s industry leading F2F offering is bolstered by proprietary technology and an in-house call centre, the Globalfaces Direct Contact Centre (GFDCC). GFD’s Insight software was developed to track and analyze every single donor interaction, in real-time.  Our partners are provided with fully transparent reporting and we ensure that payment processing/CRM integrations are implemented/tested prior to the start of every new F2F campaign. The GFDCC offers instant verification, on the spot, for every newly acquired donor.  Additionally, the GFDCC is able to provide SMS follow up, email confirmation and welcome calls in order to ensure that every monthly donor’s stewardship journey gets off to a strong start.

Dedicated fundraisers, innovative technologies and a full-service in-house call centre have allowed GFD to acquire over 400,000 monthly donors on behalf of its charity partners since our inception in 2012.  With an existing roster of more than 40 non-profits and a strong drive to grow, we welcome new partners across North America.  Contact us today.
