“The DPD is a blessing for someone who’s raised money before, as it’s taught this old dog a few new tricks!  It’s a very helpful resource for the rookie missionary and has great reminders for the veteran.” — Franz M, Missionary to Europe

 

Vaporize Your Fear of Donor Development

Most Mission Organizations expect you to raise your own support to work with them.  And most  won’t let you go to the field unless you have 100% of your support in hand before you go.

That’s a fearful reality for most who consider a mission career.

Did you know that only 2% of those who consider a mission career actually make it happen!  Fear of fundraising keeps the 98% off the field.

They are FEARFUL to step up on the fundraising treadmill, so they don’t go.

They FEAR they’ll alienate friends and family if they ask for funds.

They FEAR the hard work that comes with fundraising.

The FEAR rejection if they ask for money.

They FEAR they won’t get all their money, so why start?

They FEAR they are not worthy enough to have people give to them!

FEAR creates paralysis — so they never get to the field.

 

Now You Can Take the Fear Out of Fundraising

©The Dynamic Partnership Development training program (DPD) helps develop faith in your heart so you overcome the fear of fundraising and march on to gain full funding.

I’ve been there and done that.  For the past 45 years my wife, Sheri and I, worked in global missions and had an Anchor Funding team go with us every step of the way . . . for 45 years!  (See more about us in ‘About.’)

I’m here to say, it can be done, and I’m here to give you help in that process.

I know what it means if missionaries never get to the field.  By missing out, they leave a ‘black hole of Kingdom impact’ out there somewhere that never gets filled.

YOU are needed somewhere in the world, to do an important task in God’s Kingdom, and you need funds to do it.

So let me help you.

 

“As we started out in our mission career, the Dynamic Partnership Development was informative and explained well what Partnership Development is all about and how important it is to care for our Partners. The modules really help grasp the beginning stages and set the tone for the rest of the training.  It is great to have a guide to help us as we work on partnership development without much prior experience.” — Jonathon and Candice R, Missionaries to Costa Rica

 

The DPD is the New 21st Century Fundraising Tool

I’ve written the ©Dynamic Partnership Development coaching resource after 45 years of fundraising experience adapted to the 21st technological century, to help you overcome your fear and move courageously and effectively down the track to full funding.


Here’s How the DPD Can Help You
:

The DPD Helps You Raise Money

Smarter not Harder

Fundraising takes a lot of effort.  Funds don’t drop into your ministry account like a waterfall.  Rather you have to prime the hand pump to get things started, and then the water starts to flow.

We Americans have become the ‘Microwave’ generation.

We want things done FAST.

We want things done EASILY.

We want things done NOW.

Unfortunately when we apply this to mission fundraising, it simply doesn’t work.

Rather than gaining some training in how to do this, or putting into place a solid administrative foundation, we ‘wing’ the process.  Learning lessons as we go costs us  time, money, energy, and precious contacts.

Are you going back to ask a friend for money again, after you messed up a fundraising presentation due to inadequate preparation and they said ‘No?’

There is a better way:

  • Know your “Why” clearly before you start!
  • Learn the fundraising basics before you start!
  • Lay your administrative foundation before you start!
  • Harness the power of the Internet before you start!
  • Prepare yourself before you start!

Then when you start contacting friends and family to ask for money, you are on top of the fundraising process.

You then have courage, perspective, and insight.  You drive the process instead of the process driving you.  You know what steps to take confidently.  You’re on a mission and you know how to succeed!

The DPD helps you understand the fundraising process; lay that administrative foundation; gain the altitude and perspective; and work smarter from the get-go.

“Desire without knowledge is not good, and whoever makes haste with his feet misses his way.” — Proverbs 19:2 (ESV)


The DPD Puts the Joy Back into Fundraising

Is Fundraising a grind to you?

Are you demotivated to make those calls and meet people for presentations?

Does the phone freak you out?

Are you spending more time watching videos on your phone, than digging in and hitting  your fundraising?

Are you procrastinating because you’re out of motivation?

You need to put the joy back into your fundraising.  The DPD can help you do that.

How?

It gives you a long-range perspective on fundraising and spells out the implications of a less-than-100% funded life.

And when you see more people joining your Anchor Team because you now work more effectively, the joy will returnYour spouse’s joy as well!

 

“The DPD is enhancing my confidence levels to raise money at a point In our calling where we are convinced we must do this pastoral care work. 

Previously, it was hard for me to make personal appeals for money for a couple reasons:  First, because I didn’t have a good path to follow in fundraising; and secondly, because of the Zambian cultural view that only someone who ‘preached’ was worthy of being paid.

The DPD has given me the knowledge, faith, courage and the practical tools to succeed against my fears and cultural traditions.  It is a powerful Resource!”  — Justin M, Care Minister in Zambia

 

The DPD Turns Your Social Media Time

into  Money

You most likely spend time on social media every day, or at least a couple times a week, right?  Maybe you do it to relax or connect with friends and family.

But consider:  You could leverage that social media time to gain more donors and ministry funding if you knew how.  Then you’re leveraging your social media time to also create dollars, euros, pounds and pesos.

The DPD helps you increase your social media reach so you can recruit new people from across the globe to follow you and donate to your ministry.

A few tweaks here and there in your social media time and you can increase your tribe of followers, and your bottom line.

And an additional benefit:  You’ll never run out of potential donors again and you’ll know the next right person to call.

 

The DPD Launches You into Ministry More Quickly

Most of us wish we could put the fundraising aside, and jump in the ministry saddle immediately, right?

Our hearts, minds, and energy are straining to minister.  Therefore, do you want to get your funding in as soon as possible and launch into ministry?

The DPD will help you get to that point more quickly.

How?

If you are NEW to Fundraising, the DPD can be used as a step-by-step guide, taking your systemmatically through the fundraising process.

If you are a VETERAN in fundraising, the DPD can re-ignite your efforts, give you new ideas, and challenge you to reach your goal.  The DPD Index let’s you choose the resources you need, pop into them with a click, and start learning.

So get on the airplane faster through the DPD!

 

The DPD Keeps You In Ministry With

Less Energy and Less Worry Put into Fundraising

One issue we don’t think about on the front-end, is the back end.  We get exhilarated when our budget is fully funded, and we finally make it to the plane.

However, over time the reality of ‘donor attrition’ hits us.  We see our bank account numbers dwindling month-by-month.  The worry sets in, and soon we are putting in a lot of energy again to crank up our fundraising.

That doesn’t have to be!

The DPD creates a fundraising system you can maintain with a small amount of time each month.  And your tribe of followers increases, providing many potential donors down the road.

If your system is in place, and you put in weekly maintenance time, you won’t have to stress or worry about your on-going fundraising.

 

“I have enjoyed the DPD material and its ability to mesh the old with the new.  For us in the Baby Boomer generation we have a lot to learn on how to communicate to the Millennials and the x-‘ers. But relationship is relationship.  Us boomers have an edge on face-to-face communication and its impact.  I appreciate that you pulled together the insights on how to blend the generations and technology to accomplish our mission.  Still chewing on all the data”  — Kevin M., Missionary Leader and Trainer

 

What Do You Receive in the DPD?

I’ve written the DPD as a 21st Century Fundraising Resource for you.  It provides 500 pages of research, tips, methods, concepts, motivations, and plans at an exceptional price.

It helps you develop a long-term donor system you build on for the length of your career.

The 500 pages are broken down into 3 Units of 31 Modules into 66 content Coaching Sessions.  Each Session takes you about 45 minutes to read and consider.

Module green

Application of some lessons will take a little longer since tool development is involved.

But you can work at your own pace.  Do one lesson a day, or three and jump around to the ‘hot button’ content most relevant to you at the time.

Because of the intensity and extent of the content, the digital DPD fills in the blanks from other written resources you may have on your bookshelf.  And the linked index moves you quickly from one lesson to another.

For example, if you have a good donor management system already in place, but need stimulation and ideas in fundraising, you can jump to another lesson which focuses on that topic.

 

Here’s a Quick Overview of the DPD Content

Unit One — Find Partners Through Basic Tools.

Having your own donor development system in place and functioning moves you effortlessly forward in fundraising.  This is your foundation, so the DPD covers that first.

By the end of Unit 1, you’ll . . .

  • Have your email and snail mail manager in place
  • Know how much money you must actually raise
  • Have a list of potential donors in hand
  • Have a friend praying for you and helping you in this process

Unit Two – Grow Your Tribe of Partners

Once your partnership foundation is laid you are ready to enlist a tribe of partners.  There’s skill in this process as well.  Don’t waste time and effort.

By the end of Unit Two, you’ll . . .

  • Have a prayer team interceding for your fundraising efforts

Unit Three – Expand Your Number of Partners Through Social Media Reach

Once people join your ministry tribe, you must not only keep them with you by developing their loyalty, but you need to enlist new people to become future donors.

Social Media helps with both of those tasks.  But again, you need to use them effectively or you’ll  suck a lot of time into a social media black hole!

By the end of Unit Three, you’ll . . .

  • Know how to harness the power and reach of social media

Unit Four– Enlist Partners Through Personal, Direct, Face-to-Face Presentations
.

In the DPD Unit 1, Module 3, I recommend training in Face-to-Face, Traditional fundraising skills. Since there are excellent programs already existing for this, I point DPD students toward those, instead of reinventing the wheel in the DPD.

However some Internationals do not have the funds for these programs as Americans or Europeans might.  So I wrote DPD Unit 4 especially for them.

If you are a DPD student and want this traditional face-to-face training, (Unit 4) please let me know after you purchase the DPD and are started, and I’ll send it to you.  davidgrissen@fundtheministry.com

As a result of Unit 4, you’ll . . .

  • Understand the value & necessity of face-to-face presentations
  • Have tools developed for these presentations
  • Know how to effectively make a face-to-face presentation
  • Be able to use Skype for international donor presentations
  • Pioneer this methodology in your own culture
  • Be enlisting new anchor donors and expanding your donor team
