 About Amy:

Hi! My name is Amy Fazio and fundraising fires me up! I’m focused on helping nonprofit executives at every stage of growth to declutter their fundraising, magnify their message, supercharge their engagement, and call in the resources they need.

You'd think that if you help a national nonprofit 2x their revenue, $1 million in the bank, increase their staff by 40%, and secure massive sponsors you'd feel satisfied... in reality, I was burned out. But let's take a step back.

As a CEO of a national trade association we were updating, upgrading and getting amazing results. I should have felt satisfied, happy even with our successes. It wasn’t that difficult to expand our outreach. It wasn’t that hard to engage with potential donors. Truthfully, it wasn’t even that hard to raise money. So you might think it was a huge success.

In reality, I was burned out. I wasn’t sleeping, I was waking up early to catch flights and deliver my elevator speeches in boardrooms from Florida to California. The insane pressure to keep the momentum going was very real.

And I started to wonder if I could show other people how to leverage their relationships and position to attract donors to achieve the Big Vision faster WITHOUT burning out.

I began sharing my process that had raised millions and millions of dollars ~ my secret sauce.

Throughout my 25-year career, I’ve served as an educator, volunteer, fundraiser, community organizer, community health counselor, nonprofit executive, CEO, consultant, and board member.

​My diverse perspective and first-hand experience over the years has taught me that we have big challenges and we need big systems change to solve them.

The Magnify Your Mission CoLAB™ was born to offer a community for leaders of different industries and size who want to accelerate real transformation for those they serve.

Are you done with the 24/7 hustle, unrealistic expectations on a shoestring budget, lackluster support from board and community, tired of begging for money, or never sure where the funding is coming from?

I’m excited to help leaders scale their mission by finding an easier way to attract their ideal donors who are ready to give so you can create more impact and have more peace.
