The HeArt of Fundraising
“Is fundraising a chore or necessary evil that must be done?” Mike Stickler
Most nonprofits and ministries have an incorrect concept of fundraising. They find it a chore or necessary evil that must be done. I often hear it feels like begging of manipulating. But fundraising is just another opportunity to minister to others and build life-long friendships, if approached properly.
In this webinar, you will learn how to change your outlook and heart about fundraising. Learn the difference between “Needs-Based” fundraising and “Vision-Based” fundraising. You will learn the mistakes you have made in your approach and how not to make them again. No matter if you are a seasoned professional or just starting a new world-changing effort, your time will be well spent.

The Vision Group, Ltd., has developed a newly refined focus – to help you raise your part of one billion dollars for Christian ministries and community-based organizations by the year 2020.
How? Through two essentials in development: vision casting and relationship building. We’re calling this campaign “Vision2020.” It has the potential to have a major worldwide impact on organizations.
The Most Common Reason You’re Not Funded
“Lacking a clear and compelling vision that motivates the reader is the number one reason proposals fail.” - Mike Stickler
The biggest reason your proposal will be denied is the lack of a clearly defined vision your funders can see.
This is our favorite topic to teach organizations. “Vision Development is a game changer.” A properly formed vision will compel funders to share in your objectives. In this 1.5 hour session, learn the definition of vision, mission and a “dream.” Learn how to put that vision into the culture of your organization, then how it leads to sustainable funding.
