What We Do & Why We Are Different
Partners in Success
With over 50 years of combined experience, Team Kat & Mouse has seen and participated in all types of training sessions. Some were helpful, but more often than not, Board and staff enthusiasm for the new knowledge diminished very quickly.
While training our own teams, we discovered that maximum growth was seen after customized training had been designed specifically for our needs. Off-the-shelf training didn’t work. We also discovered that ongoing one-on-one meetings and coaching sessions kept the teams excited and eager to move forward.
Using this approach, we proudly led unified, enthusiastic, and successful teams of Fundraisers that were recognized for their success by the organizations and the communities they served.
One-time, pre-packaged training does not create long-term change.
For that reason and more, we will customize your coaching curriculum specifically for your organization’s needs, goals, and preferences and complement it with on-going office hours. This dedicated and personal time will ensure continual learning, so opportunities to grow engagement and donations through new ideas and channels explode.
We understand the demands of leadership make an "open door policy" for sales coaching difficult - that’s where we can step in - to support you and your front-line fundraisers effectively.
Using our two-fold approach, we promise to help you grow your present funding sources and develop new sources you’ve yet to consider.
Together, we will focus on discovering the training strategy and curriculum best suited to grow your team.
In partnership with your organization's leadership staff and Board, we will make a plan to achieve both short-term and long-term growth. Your input is crucial and will make the difference in delivering the results you need.
Team Kat & Mouse has designed curriculum modules that include all facets of fund development. From Fundraising 101 to how to weave a mission-driven “story” to sales training for fundraisers, how to build, offer and develop a powerful presentation, and more.
All programs are customizable and scalable based on your needs, budget and timing. For instance, training your team on how to “sell” sponsorships 6- months before your next 5K.
Ongoing Coaching, Support and Communication
This makes us a consistent and trusted part of your team. Your employees will feel excited to try new things like our on-going office hours to “practice” and feel comfortable.
Team Kat & Mouse will be supportive and approachable with a singular goal to grow funding for your organization.
We will guide your team on how to identify new sources of funding, how to use best practices to engage prospects, and how to discover new ways to expand existing donor engagement and funding with fresh ideas.
To keep you aware of all new ideas and coaching points, We will always summarize our office hours in a short outline for leadership.
Your Team will be polished, professional, and successful, discovering new funding sources that have never been approached or considered before.
We will never lose sight of your mission and the funding needed to grow your impact.
