The Bright Spot Members Club

Are you getting the support you need?

Life as a professional fundraiser can be difficult and frustrating.

Every year your targets get higher – and yet you rarely get the training and guidance you need to hit them.

The “no thank yous” you get from both donors and colleagues deplete your confidence and energy levels.

You became a fundraiser to make a difference, and you hate feeling stuck and unsure what to do.

Supporting you to make an impact

Would it be easier to hit your targets if you had access to training in practical fundraising techniques?

How would it feel to be a part of a supportive, like-minded community?

Do you think knowing ways to solve common challenges would make fundraising less stressful?

Something a little different…

You’ve been to the conferences. If you were lucky, you heard some uplifting speakers, made pages and pages of notes and left feeling inspired.

Until the next day. Back in the office, reality takes over. Your notes end up in your desk drawer, and you get pulled back into your emails and relentless to-do list. The inspiration has faded by your mid-morning coffee.

The Members Club is with you every step of the way.

Often a conference ticket can swallow up your whole year’s training budget – which doesn’t seem like such a good return on investment when you consider how quickly any positive effects fade away.

However, with the Members Club, you have access to training, information and a supportive community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year.

Unsure about the best tactic to apply to any fundraising problem? Log-on to the Club and access the relevant bundle.

Need to ask a question (or just get something off your chest)? Post in the private Facebook group.

Need help putting a particular strategy into practice in the real world? Ask Bright Spot founder, [Rob Woods] and his monthly guest expert in the live webinars.
