The Make An Impact Podcast

Nov 16, 2020

Trying to describe what Patrick Kirby does? Well, he helps non-profits suck less at fundraising -- how’s that for an elevator pitch for you? 

Patrick has had an amazing non-profit career that helped grow and scale organizations like the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation before realizing that his true knack was in fundraising. So he started ‘Do Good Better’ Consulting to work with a wide variety of non-profits learn how to fundraise better and more effectively. So much so, that he literally wrote the book on it! 

In this episode, you’ll find that Patrick and I have blunt conversations about what works and what doesn’t work in fundraising, his 5-day strategy to communicating with donors, why people need to stop focusing on NPO infrastructure so much, and his tips for delivering a great keynote speech! 

You can connect with him on Facebook or Instagram @fundraisingdad or check out his fundraising coaching & consulting firm @dogoodbetterconsulting or at
