Together, we can change the world...one volunteer and one dollar at a time!
Hi, I'm Mary Valloni - Fundraising Coach, Consultant and Trainer. I'm a former development director for the American Cancer Society, the ALS Association, and Special Olympics and I love to fundraise, but more importantly I love people. After raising millions of dollars for these organizations, I realized too many individuals and organizations don't have access to the training and resources they need to be successful at fundraising.
It wasn't until my dad passed away in 2013 that I knew I needed to pursue my dream to start up Mary Valloni Consulting. My mission today is to educate, encourage and empower nonprofit and ministry leaders to raise the funds they need to fulfill their mission.
I help a variety of individuals and organizations reach their fundraising goal through my book, Fundraising Freedom: 7 Steps to Build and Sustain Your Next Campaign, my
Fundraising Freedom Companion Course - a self-guided, 7-week video course where I personally lead you through my 7 Steps, 1:1 coaching, group coaching, consulting and staff/board training. I am also a passionate and energetic speaker and love teaching on stage or through my weekly podcast,
The Mary Valloni Show. I currently work with nonprofit organizations, missionaries, ministries, and churches to develop a customized strategy that will generate the revenue they need to reach their fundraising goal.
I received my Bachelor of Science in Organizational Communications with a minor in Religious Studies from Missouri State University and attended my first year of college in my home state at the University of North Dakota. I currently live in St. Louis, Missouri with my husband and in-house graphic designer, Geno, and our, two Dalmatians.
