Meet your host

Sami Bedell-Mulhern

In 2017, I started my freelance business, H & E Marketing Solutions, helping small business owners, entrepreneurs and non-profits create and execute their digital strategies in Bend, OR.

My background was is in non-profit work and fundraising. I have seen first hand the struggles in an ever-evolving landscape and the pressures that Development professionals feel to keep the funds coming in.

I wanted to create ways to support non-profits where they are and make non-profit fundraising, online, easier. I believe in the organization you’re trying to build, and the impact you can make in your community – so let’s do this!

The Details

When

Videos will be released daily between May 17 – 21. There will be a combination of live and pre-recoded.

Where

The entire events take place virtually! No need to put on pants or do your hair. Take advantage of the sessions from your home office, your couch or your real office.

How Long?

Each session will be somewhere between 20-45 minutes long. We anticipate our live sessions will be the longer ones so we can answer all your questions. Each presentation will be available for 48 hours so you can catch up if you can't watch right when they're released. Or rewatch the ones that are most impactful for where you are and take action.

Lifetime Access

Once you've registered you'll get an email from us telling you how you can upgrade to the Online Fundraisers Toolkit. Along with lifetime access and special co-working time you'll also get access to bonuses worth over $5,000

The Online Fundraising Virtual Summit was 4 information packed days of incredible speakers. The summit was:
INFORMATIONAL – so much great content
INSPIRATIONAL – we can do MORE!
ENABLING – useful tools and processes were made available
ENGAGING – interaction with the speakers was easy
ACTION-ORIENTED – I walked away with so much to do that will make our organization truly successful.
Just as important was recognition that we were doing great things and the advice to PRIORITIZE and FOCUS – taking it one step at a time and not be overwhelmed. Thanks to the organizer – Sami! I'm looking forward to the next one.

I can't believe how much I learned in five days. As a small nonprofit, learning best practices about online fundraising sounds like a insurmountable task at times when the daily activities of serving clients seems more pressing. It is very important to share your story (and therefore encourage giving) in an effective way, which requires planning. After the four-day summit, our organization has a better grasp on what next steps for fundraising and were given many tools and suggestions to more effectively tell our story. It was definitely worth it to clear my schedule to be able to attend. I came away with action steps that we will take over this next year.

The First Click Fundraising Summit was a treasure trove of ideas and support for any level of fundraising. As a seasoned fundraiser I found the content fresh and invigorating. Since the summit I have been able to implement new ideas and build stronger relationships with my donors.

The First Click’s virtual summit was a game changer for me. Not only were the topics covered relevant to my day to day fundraising tasks, Sami also worked out a VIP pass allowing me to go back to the online content anytime! Just to recap: a free week long summit with incredible presenters covering topics from beginner to expert level, a worth-every-penny VIP pass, and an engaging Facebook group that still keeps me accountable months later!
