Together, we can change the world! 

At Get Fully Funded Sandy Rees knows fundraising isn’t easy, especially when you’re just starting out.

Sandy started Get Fully Funded in 2005 because she hated seeing really good causes struggle to raise the money they need.

Sandy Rees, Get Fully Funded, headshotShe knew there’s an easier way because she’d done it, growing the revenue at a small food bank from $150,000 per year to over $1,000,000 in less than 5 years. She also helped stabilize revenue for a brand new after-school music program, doubling the donor base and creating a monthly giving program in a little less than a year.

Sandy took everything she learned the hard way and distilled it into simple, easy-to-learn nuggets that she and her team deliver through a variety of services and programs.

Everything you’ll learn is practical and easy to use. There’s no guesswork or theory here – only proven tactics that get results. That's what Get Fully Funded is all about!

We know that by breaking down big concepts into smaller parts, we can help you learn quickly and easily, so you spend less time struggling and more time changing lives.

We believe that raising money for your nonprofit shouldn’t be overwhelming, scary, boring, or hard.

At Get Fully Funded, Sandy Rees is here to help you.
