Hi, I'm Sybil

I have a special understanding of effective giving because I was a nonprofit professional prior to becoming a donor advisor for pathfinding philanthropists.

I have helped donors give away over $45 million in donations large and small, and I have worked with over seventeen philanthropic institutions over a career that spans more than two decades. 

I know what it takes for you as a nonprofit leader to pitch a donor effectively, and I want to share my tips and tricks with you.

I will show you how to focus on only the most important parts of fundraising so that you don’t waste time and effort.

“You only have one chance to make a good first impression”

This old saying is especially true when it comes to fundraising.

No matter how good you are, you can always hone your fundraising pitch.

You want to make sure that, when you do get that special meeting with a prospective donor, you're giving them a personalized pitch that will have them leaping to give you funding and support. 

I’ve been pitched by literally hundreds of nonprofit leaders just like you. I know what it takes to do it well and I hate it when I see a leader mess it up. I don’t want this to be you.

Get the Pitch Perfection Mastery package  to fast-track your fundraising success today.

 

Here’s what nonprofit leaders are saying:

I'd never really had the time to focus on major donors or philanthropy, but decided it was time to invest in that and join Sybil's Do Your Good Membership Program for Non-Profits. Literally within weeks of watching a couple of her previous recordings, and joining two online 'Ask Sybil' sessions, I noticed I was already communicating differently with potential donors, and in one week raised £10,000 using my new skills! If you're a non-profit or charity I highly recommend her work - it feels like a huge relief to have an experienced guide who wants nothing more than for me to be a hugely successful fundraiser!

Natalie Fée, Founder of City to Sea

We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Sybil and benefit from her extensive experience. Her strong land conservation background was instrumental to helping us collaborate with ease. Her sage advice and dedication to our strategic long-term goals was evident from the moment we started working together. Sybil is an outstanding asset, excellent communicator, and we greatly appreciate her positive work ethic. Thank you Sybil for the guidance and helpful communications tools as we look to build the future of land conservation work
