Letter from Bonnie Marlewski-Probert, founder of Funding101.org

Welcome to Funding101.org. I have shared my life with animals and worked in the horse industry for more than 20 years as a teacher, trainer, writer, columnist, national speaker and the author of more than 20 books. I became passionate about helping non-profits because I have seen, first-hand, the power a non-profit can have on their community.
Here is my personal story: As a riding teacher, I saw, on a daily basis, how animals could teach life principals that include; success, confidence, self-esteem, patience, determination, commitment, working as a team member and so much more. These are the life skills that will pay dividends every day for the rest of your life, no matter what path you choose.

As a teacher, I have watched thousands of riders blossom emotionally, physically and spiritually through the process of learning to ride. As an 8-year-old, I was one of those children and it was through the generosity of a family friend that I was first exposed to horses, and ultimately to a lifelong love of the sport.

After my initial introduction, I was fortunate to find trainers who were passionate about teaching life lessons through the riding process. Not only did I learn to ride well enough to enjoy success in the Western, English and Jumping showrings, but I had the time of my life. Most of all, it was the focus on life lessons and character building that have helped me be successful in my life.

Eventually, I apprenticed as an instructor for a year before starting to teach professionally. That was more than 20 years ago and the rest.... as the saying goes... is history. Throughout all of those years, I shared my life with dogs, cats and birds. I'm happy to say that I learned life lessons from my time with all of those animals and I want others to have the same opportunity.

It has always been my intention to "pay-it-forward." I did that successfully, as a teacher, writer, speaker and author, but I want to expand that to include all non-profits because whether you are running an animal-related non-profit or a community center for kids at risk, or an art group, the one thing that all non-profits have in common is a desire to help their community and on that level, I want to do whatever I can to help you, help those in your community. That's my way of "paying-it-forward!"
I created funding101.org after doing a 5000 mile fundraising book tour to benefit Therapeutic Riding Centers around the country. I used the Horse Tales for the Soul series of 7 books to help non-profits raise money and awareness in more than 21 cities during the tour. After years of working with non-profits individually, I decided that the greatest service I could provide to the success and growth of non-profits across the nation was education. Not in educating you about the important work you do every day... you are the expert on that level! What I discovered while traveling the country was that so many non-profits were weak on the business side of things and that is what I have focused on providing help with at funding101.org.

Funding101.org is here to help non-profit organizations learn how to be more effective at running their businesses every day. Our goal is to teach you how to easily double or triple your monthly revenues by learning and following new, simple-to-learn strategies. As you learn and implement those new strategies, your stress levels will decrease while your effectiveness as an organization increases!

Let me help you, help your community by showing you ways to raise more funding, attract more volunteers, more business sponsors, more donors and more grant money.


Sincerely,

Bonnie Marlewski-Probert
