Abe Lara, Fundraising Coach

 What gets you excited about coaching?

Being 100% fully funded is deluxe. Helping others become 100% fully funded is deluxe with a side of awesome sauce.

What's your #1 tip for gaining new funding partners?

Clear messaging.

Tell us about a time where you helped someone overcome a significant barrier to successful fundraising.

I once made a smartphone lock screen for myself and a co-laborer of mine when we were both initially raising support. The wallpaper simply said, "Stop procrastinating and dial". Was a great reminder for both of us to stop making excuses and reach out and call prospective donors.

Where can we find you on the weekends?
