My guest this week is Sabrina Walker Hernandez, fundraiser extraordinaire and total pro when it comes to “doing fundraising differently” and thinking outside of the box.
Sabrina is President & CEO of Supporting World Hope. She is a certified consultant, coach, and facilitator. Sabrina has set fundraising records taking a Boys & Girls Club in Texas from $750k to $2.5M, leading a $12 million dollar capital campaign, and she has a Certificate of Nonprofit Management from Harvard Business School.
Sabrina spills all the tea on her journey to record-breaking fundraiser, and how she did it in the 3rd poorest county in the United States. Here are some of the topics we discussed:
- How she raised a record-breaking amount of money despite there being no history of individual giving at the organization
- Her apology to all Development Directors (love this)
- How to flip the script and focus less on raising money and more on building relationships
- What the best fundraisers do and how they do things differently
- How to convince your Board to fundraise
