New Era offers a variety of one-hour webinars & multi-module courses designed to help you ignite your skills & spark your confidence!

Because we’ve worked in the nonprofit sector, we know you’re busy. Super busy! Everything in The Nonprofit U is designed to fit your schedule – all trainings are pre-recorded and delivered to you as downloadable files, so you can watch it any time — and as many times — as you like.

Our webinars & courses are both informative & fun. The ideas we’ll share & the skills you’ll learn will spark your passion & help you sizzle on the job. This will help your organization attract more resources (donations, volunteers, interns), increase the agency’s capacity to help people & fulfill its mission.

Here are just a handful of the hundreds of comments we’ve collected about our workshops & webinars in the past few years:

“She Blew. My. Mind. I will never think about fundraising the same way!” (David G.)

“Sarah talked about BIG ideas, but then told us practical, straight-forward ways to improve our fundraising.” (Jeanette A.)

“Sarah is so down to earth! You can tell that she genuinely loves the nonprofit sector. She is generous with her time & knowledge.” (Maria S.)

“I learned more about fundraising than I knew there was to know!” (Jeff K.)

“Sarah’s webinars were stock full of valuable tips & real-world advice. I can’t wait to implement everything I’ve learned.” (Annie G.)

Sarah is Dynamic & Knowledgeable!

We brought in Sarah as a speaker for our annual national conference because she is a dynamic presenter with a wealth of knowledge of & experience in fundraising. What’s different about Sarah is that she has the ability to captivate any audience & explain things in a digestible, down-to-earth manner. We know that workshop participants leave feeling better prepared to seek dollars from donors!

Sarah’s Workshops were a Huge Hit!

We asked Sarah to deliver two workshops at our 2014 state-wide conference — which drew 525 nonprofits — because of her track record & because of her knowledge that spans the arena of fundraising, leadership, human resources & more. Both of Sarah’s workshops were a huge hit!

Sarah always jam packs her workshops with valuable information that someone can apply to their own jobs today. There are take-a-ways from every workshop Sarah presents. If asked to present, Sarah learns about the audience and customizes her message for the attendees.
