Why Become an Institute Instructor
I became a Sanford Institute of Philanthropy instructor because of its innovative approach in blending fundraising best practices with cutting-edge sales strategies. Each class I teach provides an opportunity to share my practical experiences and passion for this profession while also learning about the challenges participants face in their fundraising organizations. I love supporting the participants to be more successful in their careers, and I’m grateful for the personal development opportunity the Institute has provided me.

Associate Vice President, The Welty Group
Over the years, I have been the beneficiary of several wonderful mentors from whom I have learned a great deal about fundraising. Serving as an instructor for the Institute gives me a chance to pay it forward by sharing some of what those mentors taught me. Teaching at the Institute is a fun exercise in a comfortable environment where we are gathered for a common purpose – to advance philanthropy.
Vice President of Development, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles
Becoming an instructor for the Institute appealed to me because its sole mission is to help good fundraisers become great ones. My role is to help students make an immediate difference in their fundraising results by improving the number of mutually beneficial relationships between nonprofit organizations and their donors. At the end of every class, I ask students, “What will you do differently tomorrow to make a bigger impact for your cause?”
