About Program

2020 might turn out to be one of the most unpredictable fundraising years nonprofits have ever faced. With funder behavior shifting on an almost daily basis, nonprofit professionals need to be equipped with the creativity, versatility, and vision to achieve their fundraising goals.


At Wright Consulting Group, we know this to be incredibly important. We’ve supported organizations just like yours during and after many crises. From working with nonprofits in New York and New Jersey when Hurricane Sandy struck to supporting West African NGOs as they rebuilt after the Ebola crisis, we know it takes out-of-the-box ideas, decisiveness, bravery, and a certain level of tech savviness to ensure fundraising success.


That's why we are launching “The Fundraiser's Corner” - a community-driven space where we will teach, facilitate, and guide development professionals together around a common goal: raise the resources necessary to achieve mission fulfillment while also avoiding the all-too-common burnout, stress, and anxiety that accompanies the fundraising field.

Alyssa taught at our annual Online Fundraising Academy for nonprofits and gave our partners great insights into strategies for donor retention. She helped demystify some of the key concepts around donor retention for an audience working with different donor demographics and in varying intense global contexts. Our nonprofit partners really enjoyed Alyssa's presentation and found it both engaging and full of practical takeaways. I would highly recommend working with Alyssa!
