Fall in love with fundraising. Really!
Fundraising doesn’t come naturally to most of us. But when the right people get the right training, anything is possible.
After training thousands of professionals to be high-impact fundraisers, we’ve cracked the code on what works.
Embrace the Ask
Asking for money doesn’t have to be scary or a drag. It can be fun and energizing – really! We’ve learned you not only need to teach people fundraising skills — you also have to pay attention to what they believe and feel.
Our trainings change both hearts and minds so you can build a dynamic, powerful culture of philanthropy on your board and at your organization.

The Varga Group trainings deliver practical tools and energizing new ways of approaching fundraising to inspire new fundraisers and reinvigorate seasoned veterans.
