Choose Abundance Intensive JCC Sessions

A course with a powerful and proven curriculum that enables not-for-profit organizations to dramatically increase revenue, resources and community engagement.

The Harold Grinspoon Foundation commissioned a study to track the outcomes of a 9 month Culture of Philanthropy course led by Laurie Herrick. This course is the inspiration for the Choose Abundance Intensive.

“We raised $1.6M for our capital campaign and increased our annual fundraising from $80,000 to over $400,000 in the last 2 years. Building a Culture of Philanthropy with Rainmaker was transformational!”

Bert Carter – President & CEO, Willie Ross School for the Deaf

“We raised $250,000 of new money for our recreation programs
