Together, we can change the world...one volunteer and one dollar at a time!
Former Development Director for the American Cancer Society, the ALS Association and Special Olympics, Mary loves to fundraise, but more importantly she loves people. After raising millions of dollars for these organizations, she realized too many charities were struggling and lacked the resources they needed to be successful at raising funds.
After her father's passing, Mary knew it was time to pursue her dream to become a fundraising coach, consultant and trainer and started Mary Valloni Consulting in 2014. Mary Valloni Consulting was established to spread hope and encouragement to fundraisers with small and large budgets.
Mary helps individuals and organizations reach their fundraising goals through her book, Fundraising Freedom: 7 Steps to Build and Sustain Your Next Campaign, the Fundraising Freedom Coaching Course (a self-guided, 7-week video course), 1:1 coaching, consulting, speaking, and staff/board training.
Mary is also a passionate and energetic speaker who is equally at home leading national nonprofit trainings as she is speaking to community volunteers. Mary works with international, national and community based organizations, individual fundraisers, and missionaries to develop a customized strategy that will generate the revenue they need to reach their fundraising goal.
Mary received her Bachelor of Science in Organizational Communications with a minor in Religious Studies from Missouri State University and attended her first year of college in her home state at the University of North Dakota. Mary currently resides in St. Louis, Missouri with her husband and in-house graphic designer, Geno, and their two Dalmatians.
