Today we’ve got an episode from the backlist featuring one of our favorite guests, T. Clay Buck from TCB Fundraising! Clay and I dive into the nerdy goodness of data and systems for fundraising success. Clay dropped some serious knowledge bombs about the power of a solid fundraising plan and the need to keep it real with your donors.

We tackle a listener's dilemma about getting their board involved in fundraising, and Clay is all about having a real honest convo with your consultant. Plus, he shakes up the idea that you can't raise funds in a resource-limited community. Spoiler alert: It's all about your story and that abundance mindset!

We wrapped it up with some golden nuggets on why fundraising isn't just sales and how to diversify your funding eggs (don't put 'em all in one basket, folks!). If you're trying to level up your nonprofit's money game, give this episode a listen. And hey, hit me up with your questions or follow along for more nonprofit nuggets. Catch you next time!

In this episode, you will hear:

  • How data and numbers can transform your fundraising plans

  • The real difference between sales and fundraising

  • The role of the board of directors in your fundraising 

  • Why hiring a consultant isn’t just a quick fix to your fundraising problems

  • Why we should change up the way we think about our individual donors

  • How a scarcity mindset can sink your fundraising plans
