Meet Your Hosts, Mike Kim and Mary Valloni:
Mike Kim: "As a marketing consultant I've advised numerous organizations including Catalyst, People of the Second Chance, MOPS, Donald Miller's StoryBrand, and Global Mission Awareness. I've been featured in business publications like Entrepreneur, Inc, and Forbes -- and my days are spent helping organizations clarify their message.
More than that, I love missions. Before I launched my consulting practice, I was a youth pastor and worship leader -- and also served on the mission field in countries like Colombia, Peru, Costa Rica, and Spain.
I understand the unique challenges of balancing missions, ministry, and money -- and I'm excited to help you grow your donor base and raise more money."
Mary Valloni: "I love helping great causes raise the money they need!
I'm a former development director for the American Cancer Society, the ALS Association, and Special Olympics. My book Fundraising Freedom contains the strategies I've used to help these organizations.
I love to fundraise, but more importantly I love people. After raising millions of dollars for such causes, I realized too many missionaries don't have access to the training and resources they need to stay and flourish on the field.
It wasn't until my dad passed away in 2013 that I knew I needed to pursue my dream to start my own consultancy. My mission today is to educate, encourage and empower nonprofit and ministry leaders to raise the funds they need to fulfill their mission."
