#190 - How Fundraising Accelerator Levels You Up with Rosemary Ellis, Drine Paul and Noelle Andreano Nonprofit Lowdown

    • Non-Profit

In this episode, I will be interviewing three alums of the fundraising accelerator program. We have Noelle Andreano, the Director of Development at The New School of Northern Virginia, which is a small Independent School in Fairfax, Virginia. Drine Paul is the Executive Director for Breakthrough Providence in Providence, Rhode Island. And Rosemary Ellis works in New York City. She’s the Interim Executive Director of the Doula Program to Accompany and Comfort.

The three of them have pretty different roles and pretty different nonprofits. Drine Paul found out about the accelerator program and was really eager to grow her skills. At first, she thought that it wasn't something that she was good at before taking the role. She just spent a lot of time in the program to take advantage of the opportunity, resulting in her being inspired as one single woman of color who leads it.

On the other hand, when Rosemary Ellis faced various challenges in her role, she reached the point when she needed to figure out which donors she should talk to and find donors where they didn't exist and do an end-of-year campaign and even understand how to frame the organization's story in a way that would resonate with people.

To learn more about the fundraising accelerator program and the inspiring stories of Noelle, Drine, and Rosemary, please head on to the podcast. Together, let’s discover how their journey started, the reason why they joined the program, and how they've reached this far in their career.



Ever wondered if the Fundraising Accelerator is right for you?  Join me and three alums to discuss my Fundraising Accelerator program, who it's right for and what they've gotten out of it.
