VIP Strategy & Coaching Day

Jump start your philanthropic leadership and impact.

 Whether you’re just getting started with your mission or are a seasoned philanthropist, a VIP Strategy & Coaching Day is the answer you need to get you back on track!

Over the course of this fully customized, six-to-seven-hour day, I’ll work with you one-on-one (in-person or remotely!) to help you uncover what’s working well and what’s holding you back. Ultimately, we’ll develop a step-by-step plan to accomplish what’s most important for you and your philanthropy—and do so faster and more effectively.

Focused entirely on you, this dedicated session gives you private access to all I have to offer as a seasoned philanthropy advisor, strategist, and consultant. Whether you’re in need of clarity around a decision or issue, are looking to achieve a deeper impact, or are feeling burnt out and want to rediscover your driving passion—you’ll end the VIP Day with a unique, actionable roadmap to confidently guide you to achieve impactful change with your philanthropy.

"Kris brings a rare and unique perspective to her philanthropy consulting that makes it easy for us to bring our best selves to our work as grantmakers. It's clear that she has invested in her own knowledge and capacity and has shared that with our field. In addition, she holds herself and her practice to the highest standards of integrity, honesty, clear thinking and creativity, and she helps our organization do the same."
Ronn Richard
CEO, The Cleveland Foundation

How It Works:

Step 1

Have a 45-minute VIP Day Discovery Call to clarify your goals and our agenda.

Step 2

Spend a productive day together, virtually or in person in beautiful Cleveland, Ohio—either at the prestigious Union Club downtown or at the Cleveland Yachting Club on the shores of Lake Erie. In person, we’ll meet from 9:00 am until 4:30 pm pm, including a light breakfast and lunch. (You’ll be amazed with how much we cover! ) For my international clients or those who cannot travel, I also offer a Virtual VIP Day by phone, Zoom or Skype.

Step 3

Enjoy dinner together the night before or after our VIP Day, if your schedule allows. Weather and lake conditions permitting, I can even take you out on a boat ride (late May – early October)!

Step 4

Follow up with a 45-minute VIP Day Follow-Up Call, to be scheduled within two weeks of our VIP Day. This will help you stay accountable, and give us time to discuss any new needs or challenges.

"Kris's deep knowledge and experience in philanthropy is invaluable. Her ability to identify and distill best practices beyond the obvious and then translate them into actionable approaches is a gift to every funder. Whether it's through books, articles, speaking, or advising, Kris's insights and messages are enabling philanthropists to increase their impact and find even more joy in their work."

Director, Lippman Kanfer Family Foundation
