About the Methodology

To have FundraisingClarity.com is to have the capacity to make sense out of a murky environment. We are here to guide you in every step you take to put your fundraising program together the right way.
 
Like a ship sailing through calm waters, we are with you as you chart your nonprofit organization's way towards its mission.

Here's how it works

Proven

I’ve tested old and new ways of doing things over the years. Then I researched and applied science and psychology to fundraising to create FundraisingClarity.com. This program short-circuits fundraising to carry your organization from its current situation to its desired state with immediate results.

Shifting Paradigm

Learn how to see. I remember being stuck, yearning for something new and bored with old ideas yielding moderate to no success. The internet changed fundraising, but not until now have there been the right tools to make it go fractal.

Supportive Community

My best experiences have come through meeting people who enjoy helping each other. Become part of a growing community available to you 24/7/365 who have been through it. We’re there to pick you up all along the way so you’re able to get help immediately and celebrate success regularly.

Expert Mentorship

I grew leaps and bounds because of mentors in my life. I then paid it forward by mentoring young and upcoming nonprofit leaders. I promise to be your mentor for as long as you need me, not just during the six-week program. Members register for live Q&A sessions for as long as they want.

Recommendation

About Craig

Scientist

Craig Morris believes every successful fundraising program starts with a plan grounded in the scientific method. However most of fundraising is grounded in "this is how it's been done." He has fancy degrees from the University of Chicago and Indiana University, but it's his leadership in fundraising operations and metrics analysis, in local and international organizations, that's impressive. And better yet, he is now sharing everything he knows at FundraisingClarity.com.

Therapist

As a Licensed Social Worker (LSW), Craig specialized in cognitive-behavioral therapy to help people change fundamental thinking and behaviors to help them achieve goals they thought were beyond their reach. His clients have overcome homelessness, career roadblocks, violent behaviors, and, even more, clunky and underfunded NPO programs. His program is the only of its kind combining practical knowledge with the brain-rewiring necessary to get un-stuck and gain momentum.

Fundraiser

As a Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE), Craig met rigorous leadership and fundraising measures as well as passed exams demonstrating his understanding and commitment to fundraising ethics and volunteerism. His career speaks for itself, but his colleagues can also attest to leadership, mentorship, and passion for advancing the profession of philanthropy around the world. He now teaches others how to be scientific, clear-headed fundraisers at FundraisingClarity.com.
