Recognized professionally as one of the top relationship managers in the country, the Fundraising Institute Foundation provides training and fundraising assistance to charities, non-profits, and human service projects.
“Roy trained my original major gifts team and launched our major giving program, more than four years ago. When I received my first $1.8 million dollar donation, Roy was the first person I thanked for his investment in me. Roy is a confidant, sounding board and friend that I often turn to for coaching and advice in fundraising and leadership. I have him back regularly to train my team!”
— Dr. Candace L. Gregory, President/CEO, Open Door Mission
“Roy Jones taught our team how to better identify and build lifelong relationships with our friends and partners nationwide. World Help has seen tremendous growth because of the strategies and techniques Roy modeled for us. I will forever be grateful for his support. I’ve called Roy Jones the “rainmaker”. I’ve called him the “nonprofit fixer”. But most importantly, I’ve called Roy Jones my friend.”
—Vernon Brewer, Founder, World Help
“Roy Jones leadership has been an incredible asset…. We were shown how to dig into our file and get donors to give. We raised an additional $750,000 in six weeks, with more than half of it being from lapsed donors.”
— Dennis Chapman, Chief Development Officer, City Union Mission of Kansas City
“We engaged with Roy for a training over a full day and walked away with a clear plan and excitement about building a major gift program the right way.”
— Roger Howell, President, City Gospel Mission
“The way Roy pours out his experience and expertise about major donors and major gift programs has been a blessing for our ministry.”
— Paul Spence, Vice President for Development, City Gospel Mission
“Roy Jones has personally lead me to visit more prospects, qualify more donors and raise more funds. Through his Board level training, Roy has shown our Board the critical role they play in fundraising. Through both on-site and email / telephone meetings, Roy has trained, reminded and held me and my staff accountable to be better MGOs! His depth of knowledge and his winsome personality has not only guided us, but has also encouraged us!
Roy Jones’ suggestion of ‘drop in’ visits has changed the way our donors respond to future phone calls and personal visits. The very first time I used Roy’s technique, a long lapsed donor mailed a large check before I even returned to the office! Roy has reviewed our development plans, has made edits and changes, has never left us feeling like we did it wrong before, but by results has shown he knows a much better way! Thank you RoJo!”
— Robert Brady, Executive Director, Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals
