The Mary Valloni Show

Mary is an invaluable resource for nonprofit and ministry fundraising. You’ll hear ideas and learn about mindsets that you haven’t heard from most of the other experts in this field! The icing on the cake is, she’s positive, encouraging, and has a very pleasant voice!

She is Full of It...Tips and Know-How That Is

For years, I fundraised professionally for politicians and non-profits. Now, I do it for fun and for a cause that's important to me. BUT even though I've been fundraising for going on 28 years, I can still use additional help. And that's what Mary is for me. She is a fresh voice in fundraising. Even old dogs, like me, can learn new tricks. Thanks, Mary! Keep up the great work!
