Jumpstart Focused Capacity Building

Piper Trust is pleased to provide the opportunity for grantees to participate in Jumpstart—a capacity building cohort program that focuses on proven strategies to help nonprofits develop consistent, effective, and scalable fundraising practices. The Jumpstart method builds on an organization’s existing strengths to deepen technical know-how, and widen stakeholder/donor connection and engagement.

About Jumpstart

Jumpstart (program overview) is an immersive, yearlong program that will pair a nonprofit with a personal fundraising coach; the coach will meet with the organization (virtually) twice per month to help acquire, retain, and upgrade individual donors. In addition to dedicated coaching, the program includes technology tools and technical assistance, designed to help organizations execute new strategies (built with the Jumpstart coach), fundraise more effectively, and take advantage of heightened online giving.

The Trust hosted a Piper Academy called: Aligning Program Impact & Communications for Year-End Fundraising led by the Jumpstart Team. Below, you can view the recording of that virtual session.


Piper Trust is no longer accepting applications for the 2021-2022 Jumpstart cohort. For more information or to be considered for future cohort, please contact Erin Goodman (
