It can be frustrating – you’re starting a nonprofit or growing one to try to make a difference and help others, but you just can’t seem to raise enough money to grow or keep things going. You see other nonprofit organizations thriving and wonder, what am I doing wrong? In this video I look at some of the common ways successful nonprofits fundraise and traits the largest nonprofits with big budgets have in common, whether they’ve grown to scale through nonprofit grants, government grants or contracts, corporate sponsorships, earned income, and more.

  1. Hi Amber, I’m working on building a children’s museum in northern Israel (under served population and a new concept for this country–though there are many great museums). The thing I loved the most about this video is that doing a smaller fundraiser is, yes, a lot of work but it can also serve to get the word out. (Plus, we’re in early stages and I’ve been funding all the start up costs alone so far!) So would you say that a smaller fundraiser (getting $100-$1000 donations for example) is also a kind of marketing campaign? Thank you for putting this all out there!

  2. Thank you so much for the invaluable information. 🙏 I have been watching your videos and you have no idea how much they help us. I have no one to ask these things from. I didn’t even know what to ask. Thank you for enabling more nonprofits to reach their goals. Your impact goes way beyond your own organisation with this YouTube channel.
