``Joe helps charities generate more gifts and stronger donor connections by being more intentional about donor visits and conversations.``
For the last 11 years, Joe has worked with hundreds of charities of all sizes. Two of Joe’s greatest value propositions are:
1) A simple approach to planned giving. So many charities want to start planned giving programs but they see it as this daunting, out of reach proposition that requires too many resources. Joe’s approach is to show fundraisers and donors how easy making a planned gift can be.
2) Joe combines relational selling with fundraising to help his clients take a more strategic approach to working with donors.
With a proven process and lots of hand holding, Joe’s clients get measurable results in a relatively short amount of time. Joe has a deep passion for the work he does and is committed to ensuring that his clients get results. Clients love his coaching approach because it keeps them on track and he’s always available to strategize on donor opportunities.
Who is Joe?
With a need for a more relational approach to fundraising, Joe blends his relational sales training and simple approach to help organizations develop thriving and sustaining major and planned giving programs. Joe trains fundraisers to move away from transactional fundraising. This approach leads to deeper and longer lasting relationships with donors. Those relationships lead to more engaged donors and more major and planned gifts.
