I feel so empowered about the process of sponsorship relationships and already positive partnerships are developing and the whole organisation is taking a more sustainable approach to sponsorship. I can’t thank you enough for taking the weight off my shoulders and giving me the impetus and tools to move forward.”

MEET SHERIDAN…

MEET SHERIDAN…

Sheridan is the Strategic Partnerships & Communications Manager at Water Safety New Zealand and has been a member of the Fundraising Academy since May 2017.

In just 12 months Sheridan blew her funding target of $700,000 out of the water and now is in the exciting position of being able to employ a new team member as she grows the corporate partnerships and fundraising team!

Sheridan Bruse

Here’s what she has to say about our training…

“I’ve been a member of the Fundraising Academy for just over a year now and I was pleased to report to my CEO at the end of our financial year that I had raised all of my $700,000 budget, with the majority of that being corporate partnerships!

It was a big year for me because not only did I have to seek out the partners, I also managed the corporate relationships which has taken such a lot of time that I couldn’t easily do more fundraising.

Excitedly, I am now in the fortunate position to be able to recruit someone to support me with fundraising and marketing which will allow me to grow our corporate partnerships portfolio even more in the years to come.

If you are looking for structured, practical support to get your corporate sponsorship strategy off the ground, or to the next level, look no further than the Fundraising Academy – highly recommended.”

LIVE COACHING SESSIONS EVERY MONTH

Online training is a brilliant way to convey the content, knowledge and practical skills fundraisers need, irrespective of location, time or the pace you want to engage with it.

However, I’m a firm believer that people need people.

And as a fundraiser, you can multiply that need!

That’s why each month we will get together for a group coaching call on Zoom.  I can see you, you can see me and for 90 minutes we will debrief, share, tease out, challenge, ask and build your confidence and skills step-by-step!

Don’t forget you will also have access to the Members-Only Facebook Group too that will give you real-time support and feedback 24/7!

MEET STEVE…

MEET STEVE…

Steve is the Treasurer of a volunteer-led committee that runs an annual event on the Gold Coast each year that open the doors of interesting and architecturally significant buildings and locations, inviting the public to take a behind-the-scenes look at places they may have only glimpsed from the street. Here’s what he has to say about our training…

“We engaged Abby Clemence to come and run a half-day workshop for us to assist our volunteer committee to upskill our knowledge and confidence in seeking and securing corporate sponsorship for our annual event.

I must say, Abby, delivered a workshop that was both inspiring and a reality check of what we needed to put in place in order to be as successful with sponsors and meet our target of $80,000!

We joined her Fundraising Academy as a result of her training to be able to access further resources and support and I am pleased to say that we are about to run our next event and thanks to her guidance we have not only created some exciting partnerships, we have exceeded our sponsorship budget AND created some bespoke ‘money-can’t-buy’ experiences for our major partners that are already creating a buzz 6 weeks out from our event.

I highly recommend Abby’s approach and methodology if you are looking to start your journey or want to play a bigger game and expand your sponsorship offerings.”

“On behalf of our sponsorship team at TEDx Phoenixville we would like to personally thank Abby for providing our team an AMAZING roadmap and for sharing your insights on preparation, planning, acquiring and maintaining relationships which has led to sponsorship success this year!.

You’ve definitely made this process much easier for both the novice and the experienced among us.”

Kali Woodward, Lead Organizer, TEDx Phoenixville

“On behalf of our sponsorship team at TEDx Phoenixville (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania’s largest and longest running TEDx event) we would like to personally thank Abby for providing our team an AMAZING roadmap to sponsorship success this year!

Your pathway on sponsorship development and planning helped us create a winning strategy for partnering with reputable companies in our area. Your insights and step by step formulas were invaluable to our organization and our fundraising efforts this year, especially as they helped us to re-envision our sponsorship opportunities as mutual partnering relationships equally benefitting TEDxPhoenixville and our circle of corporate partners.

I can say that, thanks to your guidance, many of our team members were able to discard prior misconceptions about sponsorship being an act of charity and view our current and future sponsorship opportunities in a new light. It is SO much more empowering to approach sponsorship partners from a position of self confidence and self assuredness, knowing WHAT we have to offer in the relationship, knowing the real VALUE of our audience, knowing how to respect the special RELATIONSHIP we have with our fan base and knowing how to introduce sponsors to that fan base as you would introduce a new friend to a close knit family.

Thank you for sharing your insights on preparation, planning, acquiring and maintaining sponsorship relationships. You’ve definitely cut through the clutter and made this process much easier for both the novice and the experienced among us. We’re looking forward to another successful year. Wishing you all the best.”

Kali Woodward, Lead Organizer, TEDx Phoenixville

My name is Abby Clemence.  I’ve been a corporate marketer, conference & event manager and trainer for more than 26 years.  I’m a speaker, author, entrepreneur, and I’m an educator.

I’ve worked in both government and the corporate sector, but it is in the For-Purpose sector that my heart truly sings. I have found my purpose in supporting and empowering people to build phenomenal relationships with great corporate partners.

There is not a shadow of a doubt that when the for-purpose and for-profit sectors come together in true partnership that it can lift everyone higher and people, communities, animals and the environment all benefit.

You are the change-makers in our society and that role holds incredible power.

I love watching the light switch on for fundraisers as they realise they are no longer a charity in needs of handouts, but a valuable marketing partner to the right brand.

Building the Fundraising Academy has been about supporting people to become better fundraisers in real-time. I will be with you every step of the way, empowering and supporting you to grow your skills and experience, and revel in the knowledge that you are truly making a difference in the lives of those you exist to serve.

If you are in the sector and looking to diversify your revenue base, then I highly recommend you tap into her resources and let her help you work through the planning, finding, connecting and keeping phases of the corporate partnerships lifecycle to make sure you’re getting the success you want.”
