Jeff wants fundraisers to cut the crap and start paying attention to donors. He's grateful for those fundraisers who are already doing that, because they are shining a light in a very dark night for fundraising.

Jeff has been helping nonprofit organizations connect with their donors for nearly 30 years, working with organizations of all sizes and around the globe. He is a Fundraisingologist at Moceanic, and hopes you'll ask what that means.

A frequent speaker at fundraising conferences, he blogs at and at, podcasts at, and is the author of three books: The Fundraiser's Guide to Irresistible Communications, The Money-Raising Nonprofit Brand, and most recently How to Turn Your Words into Money. He lives in Seattle.

Session Description: Story + Action: How to Win Your Donors' Hearts, Minds, and Money

Everyone talks about the power of storytelling in fundraising.  What we don't hear as often is whose story? And where does that story take our audience?

This hands-on session about real-world fundraising will help you tell the right story that will connect your donor with your cause. We'll dig deep into the ways we can put our donors front and center through action -- their action.
