We love fundraising, we’re really good at it and we can help you.
Do you want to get big gifts? Valerie M. Jones Associates (VMJA) can teach you how. We can guide your capital campaign from plan to ribbon-cutting. We can find new donors, write your grants, grow your board, lead your retreat and develop your elegantly simple strategic plan.
Other firms offer similar services. It’s not what we do. It’s how we do it that sets us apart.
We’re boutique, not retail. We’re hand-crafted, not mass-produced. We choose our clients as carefully as they choose us. We invest our talent with smart, dynamic nonprofits that face change fearlessly. We remain a resource for years, sometimes decades, after a consultancy is done.
We are dedicated to delighting our clients. Not leaving them happy or satisfied, but delighted.
The Nonprofit Hero Asking Method
Want your board members to hear “Yes!” when they ask for gifts? The Nonprofit Hero asking method (previously known as the Golden Ask) teaches authentic and inspired fundraising in 5 easy steps.
Each step calls forth a noble attribute in the asker, such as gratitude, creativity or curiosity; each step is illustrated with entertaining stories drawn from real life. The Nonprofit Hero asking method can teach your board to get more gifts, and to participate in the fundraising process in ways that dissolve their fears and play to their strengths.
