Hi it's me, Alison!

In 2019, I hesitantly created my first fundraising template. After hitting writer's block while preparing for my organization's year-end campaign as their new Development Director, I remembered the template and decided to use it to help me kickstart my writing process... and it worked. The campaign was fresh, mission-centered, heartfelt, and raised 50% more than the year prior. This success helped me overcome reservations and I launched The Fundraising Shop in 2021, providing templates to over 2,000 nonprofits since our launch. 


Then, in 2022, I got the itch to do more and launched RAISE: The Fundraising School and discovered that creating courses on fundraising skills and mindset wasn't just helping others; it was making me a better, more confident fundraiser too.

Throughout this period, I wrote daily reflections on my experiences developing nonprofit departments for various organizations. In 2023, I proudly published my debut book, "The Guide on Donor Stewardship: The Secret to Raising Lots of Funds." In this book, I delve into my philosophy on gratitude, fundraising, and donor stewardship, offering practical steps that nonprofits can take to harness their power and raise more funds.

Today, I am so grateful for the thriving business that Alison Clare Philanthropy has become. It brings me so much joy to share my fundraising expertise and experiences with both newcomers to the nonprofit fundraising arena and those seeking to enhance their skills. I look forward to continuing this meaningful journey, supporting organizations in their missions, and helping individuals make a positive impact in the world of philanthropy. Thank you for being a part of this incredible adventure with me!
