“Amanda’s coaching has given me the tools and confidence to dramatically increase Forward Theater’s contributed income to support a big upcoming leap in our organization’s growth. She’s encouraging, thoughtful, experienced, and a joy to work with. I look forward to hiring her again to support our endowment campaign efforts!” - Julia Nicholas, Development Director, Forward Theater Company
Amanda White’s Coaching Service is an opportunity to receive expert advice in an efficient and cost effective way. This service is typically utilized once the Fund Develop Plan is complete. It offers organizations an easier start to implementing their plan. However, coaching can be a great way to get recommendations and feedback on your current fund development efforts.
Topics of the coaching sessions are the client’s choice. Often it is an Executive Director, Development Director, a Board member, or a combination that meet with Amanda for coaching. Amanda provides three different types of coaching:
• Non-profit management coaching (board development and other management issues)
• Fund development coaching (primarily major donor and annual fund)
• Capital campaign coaching
Coaching sessions are usually in person for the duration of 1 – 2 hours. Clients choose to meet as little or as often as they need.
“I had the pleasure of working with Amanda White for nearly a year as a fundraising coach. I understood nothing about development work when we started, and can hardly believe I was able to learn so much in less than a year. Amanda was an excellent coach, and our regular meetings kept fundraising front and center in my mind. My organization is well positioned to meet any and all fundraising challenges that come our way in the future. My board is delighted with the progress, and they are as amazed as I am at how quickly Amanda was able to teach me everything I needed to know. Thank you!”
-Stefanie Primm, Director
