What others are saying:

“Tammy is one of those rare consultants who comes with years of experience, still works in the field and understands the need for real and demonstrable results. After a two day visit to the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay, she prepared a 60 page report detailing our many strengths and opportunities for improvement. Her report is now our road map to sustainable funding. Besides being an expert in her field, Tammy possesses a unique ability to give honest and straight forward feedback in a highly pleasant and professional manner. I would heartily recommend her anytime an organization is looking to take a good fund raising program and make it extraordinary.”
— David Braughton, CEO, Crisis Center of Tampa Bay, Tampa FL

“Tammy and I both worked with the same client. I was incredibly impressed in her work and work style. She was just what this client needed at the time and helped them be successful with their fundraising. Because I work with many non-profits as a strategic planning consultant, I have the opportunity to work with many fund raising consultants. Of all the fundraising consultants that I have met, Tammy is the only one that I recommend.”

Sustainable Funding Coaching

Coaching is a collaborative relationship, which encourages individuals and organizations to not only know their values but live them while achieving their goals. An effective sustainable funding coach will enable organizations to go beyond what’s working, defying boundaries to achieve their fundraising goals. Our approach will focus on what’s working, defining measurable goals and distinguishing the pathway to bridging the gap between the present and the sustainable future. We will utilize non-directive coaching methods requiring the coach to listen, ask questions, explore and probe; allowing the individual or team being coached to find solutions to problems.

Coaching packages are available to organizations who participate in training and board retreats towards ensuring maximum benefit of the workshop/retreat content. For more information on Sustainable Funding Coaching, please email coaching@tammyzonker.com.
