Nancy Rieves, Ed.D., Fundraising Coach

Nancy provides executive and development directors with a roadmap to raise more money through major gifts. With a proven step-by-step process, she removes the overwhelm and guides nonprofit leaders to become more confident and successful with fundraising.

Before becoming a fundraising coach, she was the founding executive director of an education-related foundation. During her 10-year period, she guided a development team in raising over $16 million for their nonprofit. She knows what it’s like to start from square one, raise millions, and guide a team in fundraising success.

In addition to her front-line fundraising experience, Nancy wrote her doctorate dissertation on analyzing fundraising activities. Her biggest discovery from her research was revealing -- too many nonprofits focus on small revenue-generating activities and never get past offering fundraising events. This discovery, along with her own success with large gift fundraising, led to her emphasis on teaching others how to secure major gifs for their nonprofit!

Her AAN training session, is A Simplified Way to Major Gift Fundraising: How to Remove the Overwhelm and Raise More Money
