Sign me up!

Dear you,

Thank you for being here! I'm so glad you're considering joining us for this second annual Fundraising Career Conference. We created this conference because

  • I was tired of talking with fundraisers who were not getting paid enough,
  • Tired of seeing fundraisers who were stuck in roles with no hope of promotion from within,
  • Tired of hearing about fundraisers who were working like dogs with no reward but more work piled on their plates.

I have been right there with you, working with total dedication, staying late, getting sick, all for the mission, with no reward but more work. In the last six years I've heard so many stories like mine that I realized I wasn't alone.

Then I thought, we say we want a better world, but what kind of world are we creating if we aren't treating our nonprofit staff well?

In 2013 I wrote Get the Job, Your Fundraising Career Empowerment Guide.  It got a 5 star review from

But it wasn't enough.

I made an e-course on how to get your fundraising dream job.

But it wasn't enough.

I wanted to touch more people. I realized that you need more expert advice and support as you steward your career, and I got some people together who can help you get the clarity you need.

We created this conference to help you get the job of your dreams, but more than that, to inspire you, to help you feel like there's a place for you in fundraising.

I hope you enjoy it. It's a lot of work for all of us, but with you here, it all feels worth it. If you've got any questions, just email me at info @

How much does it cost?

“I loved your book, Get the Job! In fact, it has helped me get two job offers and negotiate a raise since I bought it. Your book helped me write excellent cover letters and resumes and ask the right questions during interviews. I decided the first offer wasn’t the best fit and turned it down, but am very excited to start my new job soon. I will be re-reading the chapters on setting realistic expectations at my new job, which is part of a start up foundation for a university here in the UK (hard to believe there are still universities out there not in the fundraising game).

This week I am celebrating a quick win I had writing to current regular givers asking them to increase their monthly donations. The response so far has been phenomenal, and I now have a very sore wrist from handwriting so many thank you notes. Thanks for writing such a helpful book and an inspirational blog!” -Stephanie Miller, UK


"You helped me get two job offers and negotiate a raise!"

Why should you trust me about careers?

Get the Job! Your Fundraising Career Empowerment Guide is for you….from the absolute beginner to the seasoned professional.

You’ll be presented with strategies for beginning and sustaining satisfaction and success in a new job. Get the Job! is the real deal, no bull scoop on what it means to be a fundraiser, how to do what is needed to get the job and how to be happy once you are there. This is the stuff that other authors are not covering because Mazarine Treyz is invested in the long-term happiness of each fundraiser who reads the book and elevating the fundraising industry. -Judi, NYC

"Mazarine Treyz is invested in the long-term happiness of each fundraiser and elevating the fundraising industry."

“I want you to know, I used information I learned from your book “Get the job” to go to my Executive Director and change my career inside our organization and restore work/life balance to the crazy Jenna Cosmos, and I am forever in your debt for that!” -Jenna, Communications Coordinator, Virginia

"You helped me restore work-life balance!"

I have used your invaluable book over and over again. It has been hugely helpful in pushing my candidacy for several jobs I never thought I could get near. Thank you!!!

I’m very far along in the interview process for a Development Director position for a performing arts venue at a very well regarded university. Thanks for everything!!!!! Your book has been a godsend! -Susan

I think it’s marvelous that finally somebody has done a conference focusing on fundraising as a career. I don’t think anybody else has done this before. You might find one or two little programs at a major conference, but most of the time we talk about the nitty gritty of how to do an annual fund, or how to start a major gifts. We don’t focus enough on what the fundraising career is really all about. So I’m really excited to be part of this groundbreaking event."
