I'm Amy Fazio
I created the Magnify Your Mission System to help nonprofit executives at every stage of growth to declutter their fundraising, magnify their message, supercharge their engagement, and call in the resources they need to make their BIG Vision real.
You’d think that if you help a national nonprofit 2x their revenue, $1 million in the bank, increase their staff by 40%, and secure massive sponsors you’d feel satisfied… in reality, I was burned out.
But let’s take a step back.
As a CEO of a national trade association we were updating, upgrading, and getting amazing results. I should have felt satisfied, happy even with our successes. It wasn’t that difficult to expand our outreach. It wasn’t that hard to engage with potential donors. Truthfully, it wasn’t even that hard to raise money. So you might think it was a huge success.
In reality, I was burned out. I wasn’t sleeping, I was waking up early to catch flights and deliver my elevator speeches in boardrooms and engage our community from Florida to California. The insane pressure to keep the momentum going was very real. No doubt my approach worked – the focus, magnetic message, the value proposition and engagement led to more money and more mission. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks when my board president said – “Looks like you’re going to have to travel more to bring even more people in the network!!!”
Engagement gets results when I could get in front of the right people with the right message but it had to be both sustainable and meaningful.
And I started to wonder if I could show other people how to leverage their relationships and position to attract donors to achieve the Big Vision faster WITHOUT burning out.
I began sharing my process that had raised millions and millions of dollars ~ my secret sauce.
Throughout my 25-year career I’ve been a community builder. I’ve served as an educator, volunteer, coach, fundraiser, community organizer, community health counselor, nonprofit executive, CEO, consultant, and board member. My diverse perspective and first-hand experience over the years has taught me that we have big challenges and we need big systems change to solve them.
