Hello, I'm Joanne Oppelt

I help executive directors build sustainable fundraising systems that produce extremely high returns on investment in terms of both mission and money.  

I've spent more than 30 years in the nonprofit arena as a volunteer, program developer, grant writer, foundation officer, statewide technical assistance provider, federal grants reviewer, development director, executive director, and consultant, I've developed programs from scratch. I've found funding for new programs. I've rebuilt broken fundraising systems. I turned around a failing agency. I know what it takes for an executive director to be successful.

Your main goal is to not only survive, but thrive. You want to be able to meet the pressing needs you face. You want your staff to have the tools they need to do their jobs effectively and efficiently. You want to pay your staff fairly, recruiting and retaining quality employees. And all this takes money. 

Money I can help you get. I know how to fundraise on a tight budget. I know how to leverage resources so costs go down. I know how to rally the community to support your mission. I know know how to build relationships that produce positive, long-lasting programmatic and financial results. I've done it before. Skip all my years of trial and error and learn from me. 

As an international trainer, prolific author, and former college professor, I know how to impart what I have learned to others. Take advantage of my experience so you can start surpassing your financial goals today.  

Let me help you exceed your fundraising budget, build your financial reserves,and help you grow your impact and advance your mission. Contact me. I am just an appointment away.
