Meet Mike Kim & Mary Valloni.
I’m Mike Kim and I understand the unique set of challenges facing missionaries and ministries today.
As a marketing consultant I’ve advised organizations like Catalyst, People of the Second Chance, MOPS, Donald Miller’s StoryBrand, and Global Mission Awareness. I’ve been featured in business publications like Entrepreneur, Inc, and Forbes — and my days are spent helping organizations clarify their message.
More than that, I love missions. I spent a considerable amount of my teens and 20’s on the mission field in countries like Colombia, Peru, Costa Rica, Bolivia, and Spain.
I understand the unique challenges of balancing missions, ministry, and money — and I’m excited to help you grow your donor base and raise more money!
I’m Mary Valloni, a fundraising coach, consultant, and author. My past work included roles like development director for the American Cancer Society, the ALS Association, and Special Olympics.
I love to fundraise, but more importantly I love people. After raising millions of dollars for such causes, I realized too many missionaries don’t have access to the training and resources they need to stay and flourish on the field.
My mission today is to educate, encourage and empower nonprofit and ministry leaders to raise the funds they need to fulfill their mission.
