NONPROFIT STRATEGY | FUNDRAISING TRAINING | PODCAST

I help non-profits create high impact strategies and lasting relationships with funders.

SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION

Hi, I'm Sam Hardy

I’ve helped charities big and small build relationships with funders that have changed the world. And I’ve helped philanthropists find the right non-profits to fund.  

This experience of both sides of philanthropy is rare in the non-profit sector. It allows me to better understand and solve your strategy and fundraising challenges.  

I've provided advice to Tony Blair’s cabinet and the leaders of the Australia Institute and the Heart Foundation. I also directed major gifts teams at the University of Queensland and WWF-Australia. I then jumped the fence from policy advisor and fundraiser to funder, advising some of Australia's most strategic philanthropists. I founded this business to share what I learnt.  

But that said, I’m just ‘Dr Sam’ (as my friends call me). I'm a mother of two and a passionate advocate for the impact that non-profits and funders can make on the world... with the right advice.

"If you want to understand how funders think and how to raise major gifts the right way, you must talk to Sam. She worked with me at WWF-Australia and gave vital major gifts perspectives that had an immediate positive impact. When she jumped over the fence to work with funders her insights became even more valuable."
