There has been a meteoric spike in nonprofits – over 1.5 million nonprofits in the US alone. And approximately 30% won’t make it past the 10-year mark.

Frame Up for Funding is an online 12-week intensive class designed to give you a proven framework to ignite your funding, impact, and long-term sustainability!

You will get the exact strategies and templates that have helped 58 organizations just like yours raise over $3.9 million during the 12-week training. Kathy and Brad will walk you through their process.
