What Attendees Said about This Nonprofit Webinar:

“Very engaging presenters. Enthusiastic celebration of introverts and clear and precise how-to's.”

Elizabeth McNamara, Full Circle Consulting

“There was a LOT of information! I loved that it ran 1 1/2 hours, instead of trying to fit that much information into only one  hour. It didn't feel rushed or like we were missing something important.”

Kelli Knapp, Warren Library Association

“The presentation from CharityHowTo was extremely relevant and sincere, not just a textbook. The presenters have first-hand knowledge of the topic they present. They are easy to relate to. Great group of professionals!”

Laurie Pinover, PARC

“I greatly appreciate that they both began with some of their personal experiences. I am glad we were given some concrete examples of how to structure a cold call and what that looks like in practice, as opposed to a presenter telling us just to "boost our confidence".

Destiny Johnson

“Throughout three decades of fundraising I've often questioned how my INFP brain could have allowed it. "Chatting" -- pushing past "no" -- "getting together for lunch" -- joining organizations to "network" -- for me the math is just wrong. Through this excellent webinar -- presented by people like me -- I received great new strategies and specific tools to work with my "deficit" without questioning my need to nurture the quiet that feeds me. Thank you! “

Nela Long, CHRISTUS Health

"Fundraising for Introverts - Didn't think it was possible, but Nikki and Simon taught someone who's been in fundraising for a while, new ways to capitalize on the strengths of being an introvert. Great webinar!"

Therese BianchiCatholic Health

"Both presenters were very engaging and knowledgeable. They used their own experiences to enhance the sector's best practices for fundraising! Will be re-watching again."

Kaleema Kerbs, Hands On Greater Portland

"As introverts do, the presenters spoke with empathy for all of us listeners. The tips were so useful, and I'm more likely to download and use the supplementary materials than I have been for any other webinar."

Sue Yip, Merced Housing Texas

"Nikki and Simon have provided so much information that has allowed me to feel more empowered to do my job effectively. Fundraising and relationship-building as an introvert can be difficult, but with these tips, tricks, and advice, I feel much more confident!"

Joshua Webb, Center for Leadership Development

"Excellent primer for introverts and fundraisers! Outstanding overview."
