Fundraising is Scary…Even in the Best of Times
Fundraising is Scary…Even in the Best of Times
And now, in the middle of a global pandemic, national unrest, and the most divisive election in American history, fundraising can seem next to impossible.


Nonprofits are struggling. A recent study revealed that over 80% of organizations reported a decline in revenues. Many nonprofits are furloughing employees, while often being forced to increase services.

But what if I told you that the secrets to raising all the money you need are right at your fingertips?

What if, by establishing my simple systems, you could COVID-proof and recession-proof your nonprofit? 

I call it my "Lifetime Donor Attraction" formula...

It's what smart nonprofits like yours from all over the world have been using to transform their fundraising. And it’s what you'll discover within the pages of my book, Simple Development Systems.

Imagine what it would be like to to have the systems in place that would allow you to raise money easily and ethically…

Money that would transform your mission and empower the change you seek?

You could add a new program, serve more individuals…and even hire additional staff!

All without constantly “trying” new ideas or pouring hours of time and energy into the nickel and dime fundraising you're used to. The kind of fundraising that disappoints you, time and again.

With Simple Development Systems, sustainable fundraising is yours. And it's easier than you ever imagined! Even with limited resources.

Inside Simple Development Systems, you'll discover how to:

  • Get the money you need, when you ask for it.
  • Put together a solid fundraising plan — and work the plan.
  • Launch, and then grow, your own systems for fundraising success!
  • Grow relationships and build the community partnerships that matter
  • Feel confident you’ve got the confidence, skills, and know-how to take your mission forward.
  • Never worry about another crisis again!

Simple Development Systems was created based on the recommendations of Dr. Adrian Sargeant, the recommendations of Penelope Burk in her book, Donor-Centered Leadership, analyzing years of charitable giving data, and the results of our clients and students.

The program is focused on building a strong base of individual funding from the ground up (80% of charitable giving dollars come from individuals), and was structured with the small to the mid-sized nonprofit organization in mind. The gist of SDS is not on the latest bright shiny objects, but rather on mastering the fundamentals (and my lifetime donor attraction system) that leads to exceptional fundraising — and your happiest, healthiest nonprofit.

Simple Development Systems is more than just another membership program or a bunch of free webinars ...

 it’s a system based on science, and a community for moving your organization forward.

Immediately upon signing up, you’ll receive access to the digital version of Simple Development Systems containing my easy formula for lifetime donors, along with the Simple Development Systems Toolkit, packed with all of the tools, templates and worksheets that will make your work easier.

This will be followed by 24 modules, consisting of the six core classes that make up the Simple Development Systems Lifetime Donor Attraction Model. All of this is delivered on-demand, so it’s guaranteed to fit your schedule. You’ll gain access to ideas, tools, and actionable steps that you can put into practice at your organization.

Watch the free workshop, Grow Your Fundraising in 2020 and Beyond  to discover where smart fundraisers focus to grow their fundraising - even in times of crisis.

Important: If your organization has recently laid off development staff, or if you’re preparing to hire your first director of development, consider the Simple Development Systems Interim Development Director membership. You’ll quickly get your organization up to speed on the systems that matter. Your next hire will be poised for success. (Limited availability) 

Serving thousands of smart nonprofits just like you, from across the world…

What Our Students Say

I am so excited to say that after our coaching session, I was able to have an open and honest conversation with my ED. I advocated for a grant-writing consultant to come on so that I can spend more time loving our donors, and got the green light to co-create a plan to promote a culture of philanthropy that engages our Board and staff. Plus — I got a raise and a promotion! Thank you for everything, Pamela!

I am thankful for all the amazing trainings I’ve done with you over the years and the incredible resources you’ve put together for small non-profits like ours. Your dedication to our sector is such a gift and has transformed many lives.

I am really loving your POTY course, and finding it so useful. Thank you so much. It has such great material. I am busy re-writing our online thank you letters. Our physical letters are great, handwritten etc., but our email ones were bad. I had never even checked them! I took your great advice, and gave ourselves a donation, and saw what happened. One system had a good thank you, the other didn’t. Thank you so much for making us think about this. It is so good to study something and instantly be able to make changes.

Last fiscal year we had our best year ever.  We reached out to lapsed donors and also segmented the database for our annual appeal.  The result was a 15% increase in the number of supporters (I currently prefer the word ‘supporter’ to ‘donor’) who gave to our organization.

Pamela, thank you for everything you do.

Simple Development Systems is AMAZING. I am so glad we signed up for it — it has been an incredible support for me and our Development Associate. We don’t have a senior development person — it’s just me on top of being executive director, and your program has had JUST the right approach for us. I feel like we are doing things more effectively and efficiently — the webinars, resources, newsletters/emails, it has all been terrific. I am recommending it to other folks right and left!

We hit our Year-End fundraising goal and still have 2 weeks left! We implemented everything we learned in the webinars. Feeling so proud — best $250 ever spent!

I’m so ready to go through this course again as it is terrifically timely. I love how the Basics & More™ courses are organized. I always learn and I never feel patronized.  I so appreciate you for that,  Of course, the knowledge you share is terrific and I love that I can immediately put it into practice.
