BECOME AN ELITE FUNDRAISER
Seed offers a clear and guided path to becoming a craftsman-level fundraiser who creates generous donors, exceeds fundraising goals, and leads your organization into a culture of philanthropy.
THREE MISTAKES PLAGUE ALMOST EVERY FUNDRAISER'S JOURNEY.
Learn how job satisfaction depends less on where we work and more on things we control.
CAN YOU RESONATE?
You’re out of ideas to connect donors to your cause, but financial goals and donor lists are looming responsibilities. If your supervisor would only notice your work, they’d give you more challenge and authority.
You want to make fundraising a long-lasting career, but you’re not sure if it’s a good fit. You want to believe the work you do every day is making the world a better place.
IT’S NOT JUST ASKING FOR MONEY.
Fundraisers inspire generosity. They guide others to live a more generous life. They connect the hearts of donors to the world’s opportunities for impact. Fundraising is a noble craft.
But the path isn’t always clear. We know from decades of experience, it can be hard to find confidence in your role when expectations are unclear.
At Seed, we hope to inspire fundraisers to raise the level of excellence of the entire profession together.
IT’S NOT JUST YOU
After decades as frontline fundraisers, we know what it’s like to face daunting expectations. It can feel like you only serve the organization you work for and not a greater cause.
At Seed, we want to do things different. Our fundraising experiences crosses nonprofits, higher education and politics, and our expertise spans direct fundraising, major gifts, events, corporate sponsorships, annual giving and executive leadership.
FUNDRAISING IS NOT A NECESSARY EVIL.
When you become a Seed Fundraiser, you will be uniquely and comprehensively equipped to meet goals and cultivate profitable donor relationships. You will successfully communicate with supervisors and executives about job performance and expectations. Plus, you will lead others and cast vision with confidence. Most important, we are confident you will discover greater meaning in your work every day.
